The History Channel is remaking the most iconic mini-series of all time, Roots, because, you know, there’s so much to improve upon.

The People’s Choice Award nominations were announced this morning, with Glee taking the most noms, with eight. The most intriguing category is for Favorite Comedic TV Actor, with Chris Colfer, Darren Criss, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Jim Parsons and Neil Patrick Harris. How great is it that 4 out of 5 guys in one category are all out men?

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 … Rob Halford. After the success of British Steel, Judas Priest released Point Of Entry in 1981, and then in 1982 released their biggest selling album Screaming For Vengeance, which contained their only hot 100 charting single, the classic “You’ve Got Another Thing Comin’,” which peaked at #67.

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.

And now … THE TOP TEN LOST HITS OF THE 90′S! At #5 is “I Believe In Love” by Paula Cole. Paula’s 1997 breakthrough album This Fire went double platinum and yielded the hits “Where Have All The Cowboys Gone” and “I Don’t Want To Wait.” Paula was nominated for seven Grammys that year, and won for Best New Artist. She would never hit the Hot 100 again. Her 1999 album Amen was a flop, peaking at #97, and the single “I Believe In Love” failed to chart. After the album’s failure, Paula left music for a number of years, but has released three albums since 2007, including Raven earlier this year, which was funded by Kickstarter.
