Do opposites really attract? Not like this, they don’t!

Have any of you listened to Paula Abdul’s song “Opposites Attract” lately? I hear it every once in a while on SiriusXM’s 90s channel and, while the song IS old, it’s remarkable to me that in 2021 I just realized how unfit these two are for each other. I’ll explain why, but first, check out the song…

OK, where do we even start? Well, I’ve put together a little infographic to show all the ways this fascinating couple is wrong for each other, as listed in the song lyrics.


So let’s look at this objectively. Their friends say they won’t last. They won’t ever compromise on their differences. They admit to not even having a single thing in common. My question now is… why? Why would she even WANT to be with this guy? Why would he want to be with her? Oh wait, she has money. He’s a sugar baby.

Ladies out there, can you justify why this woman sticks around? The dude has no redeemable qualities. Can you imagine being with a partner like him?


The song topped the Billboard charts in many countries, including the United States. The video featuring an animated cat won a Grammy in 1991. All of this astounds me, as the couple actually fit better in any of the following three songs.

  1. How they can love each other is beyond me, so here is a fitting song for the real life.

2. The woman in Paula Abdul’s song should be asking herself this question from the following song: “What the hell am I doing here? I don’t belong here.”

3. She should also confirm in no uncertain terms… they are never, ever, ever getting back together.


Anywho, thanks for stopping by!
