Paula Abdul mistook Nicole Scherzinger for Shakira in a viral post-Superbowl tweet.

The Masked Singer judge didn't let it slide however.

The former singer and American Idol judge created the awkward tweet during the Super Bowl this past Sunday. The tweet she shared expressed her excitement to see Jennifer Lopez, Shakira and Demi Lovato perform at the halftime show.

Here's where it gets weird. Abdul's tweet contained photos of her with J. Lo, Demi, and....not Shakira.

Instead, the photo contained Pussycat Dolls' Nicole Scherzinger.

And she thought it was just as funny as the rest of us did.

Abdul's original tweet has since been deleted, but Sherzinger's hilarious quip has gone viral. People are finding it humorous, poking fun at Abdul's well-intentioned mistake.

As of now, Abdul has not responded to the tweet. Despite having worked with Sherzinger on The X-Factor, she still failed to notice her slip-up. But the fans sure didn't.

Regardless, the two of them are both queens. And while Paula Abdul may have made a mistake, Scherzinger really handled it with grace.

Talk about a ScherZINGER.

When Ruth Bader Ginsburg passed away in the fall of 2020, the United States panicked.

Namely, democrats and liberals were terrified by the prospect of another conservative judge on the United States Supreme Court, which already had a two-seat majority.

Then of course, there was the ongoing debate as to whether or not then-sitting president Donald Trump was entitled to pick another Supreme Court judge, as the 2020 presidential election was only weeks away.

Barack Obama was famously banned from appointing Merrick Garland to the Supreme Court owing to the fact that it was an election year, even though President Obama still had eight months left in his presidency.

Of course, RBG's death at age 87 also brought to the forefront an ongoing debate about whether there should be age limits for Supreme Court Justices.

More people have stories like that than we expect.

Redditors are no exception and, in fact, were eager to share their close calls.

Until we're in a situation, we'll never really know how we'll react.

I have been in this scenario, though.

Sex matters. And people rarely want to admit how much.

But sex isn't a lifetime guarantee.

It fades, as does love.

It's important to speak about it.

It can be a fixable situation.

A relationship without sex may not be the end of the world, but it's definitely a sign that something is off.
