Paula Abdul vs. Kareem Abdul-Jabbar
No NBA center broke more barriers than Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. (Well, except for Bill Russell, Wilt Chamberlain and Scot Pollard.) Similarly, no '80s female pop singer broke more barriers than Paula Abdul. (Well, except for Madonna, Whitney Houston and that lady from Lipps, Inc.)
Eh, let's cut the crap: this Mirror Mirror is based on Google Trends. (It was this or a Rick Bayless/Jerryd Bayless Top Chef mash-up.) Andy Warhol would have done it, too. (Well, probably not, but whatever.) Paula Abdul and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, after the jump.
