Check out Gr8erDays for a new timing-related mind-blower about the last time the biggest divas of the '50s-'90s tasted Top 10 success (and happy 70th to '70s goddess Olivia Newton-John)!

Plus, a whole list of famous people born the year Madonna's albums came out, and factoids like this:

Friends debuted in 1994, or 24 years ago. Watching reruns today would be like watching  Tbe Brady Bunch … in 1993. In other words, we should be less than two years away from a whacky The Friends Movie a la The Brady Bunch Movie, which arrived 26 years after the original series first aired.

Sure, Jan.

To promote the hot new Joe Gauthreaux remix of “Ain't No Mountain High Enough” (a song I can't hear enough, in any form), the legendary Diana Ross, 73, made a surprise visit to WeHo's gay bar The Abbey Saturday night.

 Keeep reading to watch her getting down with some of the city's finest go-go boys ...

Don't Miss Ross! — A Review Of Diana Ross @ NY City Center Comments (0)

My friend Jason suggested we catch Diana Ross at New York City Center last night, and I'm glad we took the plunge. Having never seen her, she was on my bucket list, and didn't disappoint.

The space was crazy-small, so even from second-to-last row, I got good shots and videos of the diva, who has not only not changed, but seems to have become even more Diana Ross as the years have gone by.

DSC02603_newThe first look — we didn't want her to Stop!

She wafted out like a vision, with her signature big hair and glitzy, sequined gown, welcoming herself with her Top 5 smash from 1980 “I'm Coming Out.” Like her presentation, it was an unapologetically literal choice, and had the crowd stomping.

She effortlessly cooed her way through a Motown segment featuring “More Today Than Yesterday” and “My World Is Empty Without You” (many of her song choices and stage gestures seemed tailor-made to communicate with fans), “Baby Love,” “Stop! In the Name of Love,” “Come See About Me,” “You Can't Hurry Love” and “Love Child.”

After the first gown swap (she favored us with five looks in all), she moved into the '70s with “The Boss” DSC03009_new and “Touch Me in the Morning,” taking a Red Hot Rhythm & Blues detour with “It's Hard for Me to Say,” her only shaky performance all evening (she seemed a little lost, then joked that she would just read the words, presumably from a prompter). 

She then brought down the house with an ecstatic “Upside Down,” for which she welcomed two of her grandkids, one daughter and a step-daughter onstage.

The '70s were back with “It's My House” and an ultra-slinky “Love Hangover,” which segued into her '90s hit “Take Me Higher,” itself a '70s throwback. Ross would occasionally give us a little vamping while singing, always with a mega-watt smile that made fun of herself, as if to discount her sexiness at 73, but she can definitely still pull it off.

And The Beat Goes On: Jimmy Somerville On His New Disco HOMAGE Comments (0)

Jimmy-Somerville

The history of gay pop music can’t be written without Jimmy Somerville, whose piercing falsetto gave ‘80s band Bronski Beat’s first album its visceral punch and aching vulnerability. His later project, The Communards, saw even more success with a cheeky cover of “Don’t Leave Me This Way”, continuing Jimmy’s association with disco; he has since put his stamp on a number of bona fide classics from the era.

Jimmy-SomervilleAs an out solo artist, Jimmy has released consistently life-affirming, dancefloor-ready, politically aware music. Most uniquely, his sexuality has been a part of his musical DNA for 30 years.

After a break in recording of several years, he’s back with Homage, a disco album so authentic it could be pressed on a white label and dumped in a used record store and no one would ever guess the mystery artist worked his magic in 2014 rather than 1978.

Speaking with Jimmy recently, I got him to talk about The Village People, Donna Summer, his vocal cords and more.

Check out my interview with Jimmy after the jump.
