Brant Daugherty: I Was Mugged at Gunpoint Following Dancing with the Stars. The thief got away with a pair of workout pants, two T-shirts, dance shoes, a toothbrush and his cell phone. “Somewhere out there there’s a dancing thief with great teeth. We like to joke that we changed his life. When he got my dance shoes he swore away his life of crime and he’s going to start doing the salsa now.” I know we’re all happy he’s okay. And now here’s a hot gif.

And here’s The Weekly ShoutOUT™. Each week we’re going to focus on one out athlete/performer and feature a daily pic and career timeline. We’ll be showcasing the big names, but also the lesser-known gay celebs who deserve more recognition. This week we give a ShoutOUT™ to … Matthew Mitcham.

And now we have the 50 GREATEST LOST HITS OF THE 90’S! I’ve often ragged on the pop music of the 90’s for being an arid desert devoid of fun, but there were bright spots, including these 50 songs, which should have performed better on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. Like The 100 Greatest Lost Hits Of The 80’s countdown, this list is very female-centric (what can I say, I like rock chicks), but hopefully, some of these pop gems may trigger a long dormant memory.

At #30 is … “I’ll See You In My Dreams” by Giant. The early 90’s sadly saw the last gasp of the 80’s hair bands, before flannel and stinky grunge took over. Giant’s “I’ll See You In My Dreams” tried mightily to keep the power ballad flame alive, but could only manage #20 in June 1990. It’s a shame, and it ranks up there with Cinderella’s “Nobody’s Fool” and Kiss’ “Reason To Live” as underrated rock ballads.
