We love the 2000s: EW staffers pick the decade's best pop culture moments

We love the 2000s: EW staffers pick the decade's best pop culture moments
Not too long ago, we were all living in the New Millennium, less affectionately known as the age of Y2K. Or if you want to be technical about it, it was the first decade of the 21st century. And during those 10 years, pop culture thrived. Not only did Nipplegate change the way we looked at Super Bowl halftime shows, but things like Laguna Beach made us rethink “reality,” Heath Ledger’s performance in The Dark Knight redefined the term “Oscar-worthy,” and Glee revived the television musical.

So with VH1′s I Love the 2000s wrapping up tonight, we thought

Pat Summerall Dies at 82
Pat Summerall was the calm alongside John Madden's storm. Over four decades, Summerall described some of the biggest games in America in his deep, resonant voice. Simple, spare, he delivered the details on 16 Super Bowls, the Masters and the U.S. Open tennis tournament with a simple, understated style that was the perfect complement for the "booms!" and "bangs!" of Madden, his football partner for the last half of the NFL player-turned-broadcaster's career. Summerall died Tuesday at age 82 of cardiac arrest, said University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center spokesman Jeff Carlton, speaking on behalf of Summerall's wife, Cheri. "Pat

New England Patriots' new star? Wide receiver Brandon Lloyd

New England Patriots' fans are buzzing over the latest gridiron trade, as wide receiver Brandon Lloyd is headed to Gilette stadium in Massachusetts. The addition of the talented 30 year-old will give the championship team added edge to complement their formidable offense. The Pats have an exceptional recent history for NFL championships. Between 2001 and 2005, they became the second team in NFL history to win three Super Bowls in four years (Super Bowl Xxxvi, Xxxviii, and Xxxix), and the eighth (and most recent) to win consecutive Super Bowls. The New York Giants beat the Pats in Super Bowl Xlii, after winning the first 18 games of their 2007 season. They were defeated again by the New York

On Sunday night, Madonna will join an exclusive club that includes the likes of Paul McCartney, the Rolling Stones, Diana Ross and, uh, Up With People when she performs at halftime of Super Bowl Xlvi in Indianapolis.

Yes, you'd be hard-pressed to find a bigger stage than the big game — last year's Super Bowl was watched by some 111 million Americans — which is why the producers of the halftime festivities always recruit the biggest stars to perform (except for 1999, when Big Bad Voodoo Daddy inexplicably found their way into the proceedings). And Madonna most certainly fits that bill, which is why, while we're not quite sure what she'll bring to the Super Bowl stage — aside from

Super Bowl half-time shows: the highs and lows, from Prince to Patti Labelle

The news that Madonna will appear at Super Bowl Xlvi will (possibly) have you cheering with delight or shaking your head in dismay – as these recent half-time shows prove

Here are the best …

Prince, Super Bowl Xli, 2007

In the (very) small pantheon of excellent half-time Super Bowl shows, his royal purpleness stands supreme. He bought the crowd to its feet with a medley of covers including All Along The Watchtower, Proud Mary and The Foo Fighters' Best of You in addition to his own hits such as Like Crazy. Best of all, he finished with a brilliant version Purple Rain played under pouring rain, almost making it appear as though he had the ability to bend even the weather to his will. The one to beat.

U2, Super Bowl Xxxvi, 2002

Bono & Co kept it sombre at this post-9/11 Super Bowl, playing three songs, a pared down Beautiful Day, Mlk

The Black Eyed Peas Have The Best Super Bowl Halftime Shows In History To Live Up To

This weekend is going to be a massive one for the worlds of music, television and sports. The Super Bowl is finally here, and the fact that the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Green Bay Packers will be squaring off against one another to determine who is this year's NFL champion is only about the fifth-most important thing happening over the next few days. In addition to the game, there will be the headline-grabbing advertisements (including a number of movie trailer premieres and appearances by both Justin Bieber and Eminem), the new episode of "Glee" that will follow the big game (which features the much-talked-about "Thriller" sequence), the national anthem care of Christina Aguilera (which bodes well for the Steelers) and the fact that this could be the most-watched American television broadcast in history (besting last year's Super Bowl, which drew 106.5 million viewers).

There's also the halftime show, which is always

Super Bowl Commercials: The Five Greatest Comic Book Cameos

Paramount's reported decision to buy ad spots during Super Bowl Xliv for "The Last Airbender" and "Shutter Island" instead of reserving a slot for a new "Iron Man 2" trailer might go down as the biggest Big Game disappointment for comic book fans since "Blade II" got a better trailer than "Spider-Man" during Super Bowl Xxxvi in 2002. However, such letdowns shouldn't detract from the growing legacy of comic book-related ads that have enriched the proud history of Super Bowl commercials.

Here are five of the most memorable Super Bowl commercials starring comics-born characters, presented with the hope that they'll set the bar for either a killer "Thor" trailer in 2011 — or at the very least, a Deadpool ad for Visa.

By Nick Neofitidis

It's Super Bowl time, and while some of us watch the game intently, all of us wait in high anticipation for the commercials, and unless you really wanted to throw away $10 for the annual pay-per-view Lingerie Football event, chances are your glued to your TV waiting for the official mid-game performance. The past decade or so has represented what could be considered the Golden Age of Half Time Shows, which is in stark contrast to the generic marching bands and "Up With People" performances from the event's early years. The Who will headline Sunday night, but will they be able to crack the top five performances in Super Bowl half time history?
