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 … Kyle Dean Massey.

Closing out our week with Kyle, this week he opened on Broadway in the title role in Pippin, and below you can see a fantastic vid (which was just uploaded yesterday) of some press events to promote the musical, leading up to what happens opening night. Congratulations Kyle! Much success in the show!

We’re shifting the focus of the latest Briefs List 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 The Top 100 Hits Of The Ladies Of the 80’s. 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 #52 is … “Missing You” by Diana Ross. The second Diana song on the list was written for her by Lionel Richie, as a tribute to Marvin Gaye, and had an unusual run on the Hot 100. It languished outside of the top 40 in late 84/early 85 for 14 weeks before finally catching hold, and reached its peak of #10 in April 1985 after 20 weeks (coincidentally, just as the Commodores Marvin tribute “Nightshift” was in the top ten). It was her final top ten and top 40 song on the pop chart.

Congrats to GiovanniF , who was the first to guess that yesterday’s Pixuzzle™ © ® was Eight Is Enough
