Paula Abdul -- Fit for the 'Idol' Finale

5/25/2010 2:45 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Paula Abdul will make her triumphant return to "American Idol" tomorrow night -- and she's making damn sure she looks better than everyone else.

Paula Abdul
Abdul rolled over to the really fancy ... and really expensive ... Lloyd Klein House of Couture yesterday, where she reportedly picked out an outfit for Simon Cowell's big send-off.

FYI -- Lloyd Klein has designed red carpet dresses for some of the biggest stars in the world, like Eva Longoria, Kate Beckinsale and Renee Zellweger.

Hopefully, Paula won't just let her dress do the talking during the show.

By the way, Paula taped something for a "Simon Farewell" package that will run on the show tomorrow.

I'm sorry, but Eva Longoria hardly qualifies as one of the biggest stars in the world.

Paula is not smart girl ,she is just a good dancer and choreographer ,she is dumb or she is in drugs we don't understood when she was in American Idol ,after she left I didn't watch the show not more not because she left but is not appealing to me .If I am her I will star a business about dance or choreography she is good at that ,but I think she has money !

LIFE IS A DRAG    

My six-year old daughter is a question asking machine. We were driving home from school a couple of days ago, and she was grilling me about the nature of the Universe. One of her zingers was this, "What's the Biggest Star in the Universe"? I had an easy answer, the Universe is a big place, and there's no way we can possibly know what the biggest star is. That didn't go over so well. So she refined the question. What's the biggest star that we know of?



Of course, I was stuck in the car, and without access to the Internet. But now I'm back at home, doing some research, and I thought I'd share the answer with the rest of you too.



Before we jump straight to the answer, let's take a look at our own Sun for a sense of scale. Our familiar star is a mighty 1.4 million km across (870,000 miles). That's such a huge number that it's hard to get a sense of scale. The Sun accounts for 99.9% of all the matter in our Solar System. In fact, you could fit one million planet Earths inside the Sun.



Astronomers use the terms "solar radius" and "solar mass" to compare large and smaller stars, so we'll do the same. A solar radius is 690,000 km (432,000 miles) and a solar mass is 2 x 1030 kilograms (4.3 x 1030 pounds). That's 2,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 kg.



One huge, famous star in our galaxy is the monster Eta Carinae, located approximately 7,500 light years away, and weighing in at 100 solar masses. It's 4 million times as bright as the Sun. Most stars blow with a solar wind, losing mass over time. But Eta Carinae is so large that it casts off 500 times the mass of the Earth every year. With so much mass lost, it's very difficult for astronomers to accurately measure where the star ends, and its stellar wind begins.



So the best answer astronomers have right now is that Eta Carinae's radius is 400 times the size of the Sun. And as star size estimates go, that's pretty accurate.



And one interesting side note: Eta Carinae should explode pretty soon as one of the most spectacular supernovae humans have ever seen.
