Today is Brett Claywell’s 36th birthday, so let’s check in with the former one half of One Life To Lives’s Kish. Here he is from last month competing in a celebrity basketball game. Obviously, he takes it very seriously.

And here he is a few months ago. What do you think of the scruff?

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 … Michael Arden.

Closing out our week with Michael, he’s currently enduring Charlie Sheen as co-star of Anger Management. He must have the patience of a saint.

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 #47 is … “You Should Hear How She Talks About You” by Melissa Manchester. The faboo Melissa had the biggest hit of her career, which began a slow ascent up the chart, finally peaking at #5 in September 1982 in its 20th week. It won her the Grammy for Female Pop Vocal.

And that Grammy win has irked me for decades, even though I’ve finally made my peace with it. Here’s her winning moment, as she goes up against Linda Ronstadt for “Get Closer,” Olivia for “Heart Attack,” Juice Newton for “Love’s Been A Little Bit Hard On Me,” and who should have won that night … Laura Branigan for “Gloria.” (and watch for Chaka’s unmistakable cameo)
