Here’s the short but groundbreaking moment from Disney Channel’s megapopular Good Luck Charlie that has One Million Moms freaking out.

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 … Andrew Keenan-Bolger.

28-year-old Broadway sprite Andrew is best known for his stage work, but he has made various excursions into films and TV. In 2008 he appeared on an episode of The Naked Brothers Band, which as he points out below, was sadly not a Skinemax show, but some Nickelodeon thing. Check out the adorable exuberance at display here.

After a spirited look back at films of the 80’s (on reflection, maybe Ladyhawke deserved a slightly higher ranking), we’re shifting the focus back to the greatest aspect of 80’s pop culture … the music, which remains the ultimate pop music decade. For this list, we’re going to focus on the ladies, and countdown the 100 Greatest Top Ten Hits of The 80’s From Female Artists. There are only two rules: all the songs had to hit the Billboard Top Ten, and they’re all from women … whether solo or with a group. Ready to jog your memory?

At #100 is … “Don’t Rush Me” by Taylor Dayne. Taylor has a couple of songs on the list, and they’re all taken from her stellar debut album, which went double platinum and yielded four top ten hits. “Don’t Rush Me” was the final single released, and charted the highest, peaking at #2 in January 1989
