couldn't you have posted the "Father Figure" video instead?

I could just go to youtube myself, but this is the Murky Zeros Decade and I wanted it sooner.

Poor Brooke Shields. She might have the worst gaydar of any human being on the planet, having dated virtually every closeted pop star in the entire decade of the 1980s.

Thanks!

I am sooooo excited to see this show! Had a crush on the man since 5th grade - at that time didn't realize he wasn't into my kind (fem), so went ahead and maintained the fantasy for many years. Does anyone know who will open for him?
