Olympic Gold Medalist and Australian Matthew Mitcham has announced in Instagram that he is retiring from diving:
I’ve been a fan of Matthew since those 2008 Olympics when he came out as gay. He was one of the first athletes to do so and proving that sexuality does not drive gold medals.
Those darn injuries we get as we age were also a contributor. He told ABC in Australia:
“The older you get you don’t tend to recover from injuries, you just accumulate them and I was doing pretty well physically. But again, there wasn’t enough of an incentive for me in diving to push through all the way to Rio when I’ve been given so many wonderful opportunities outside of diving, outside the pool that I’m really passionate about.”
Oh, yes. He’s a babe. Click a pic below to enlarge.

Fox has announced some additional roles for its upcoming remake of cult classic The Rocky Horror Picture Show. As you may know, Orange is the New Black's Laverne Cox will play Dr. Frank-N-Furter, the “sweet transvestite from Transsexual, Transylvania,” made famous by Tim Curry in the 1975 film. Professional pretty person Staz Nair will play the object of Cox's obsession, the titular Rocky Horror.
The Russian/Indian model, actor and singer-songwriter was a former contestant on X-Factor UK and is noticeably taller, darker and handsomer than previous incarnations of the scantily-clad “monster.”
I think he'll look wonderful in those infamous gold shorts:
Yes. I am not kidding. Today, we celebrate the bathtub. There is a day for everything. This is better than muffin day, though.
Both Neil Patrick Harris and Brad Goreski have admitted he is their boy toy crush. Guess what? He's mine, too.
To celebrate the sexy stud's 23rd birthday, I present some (of many) photos over which you can drool and otherwise have a good time. Just be sure to have lube and tissues nearby.
Happy Birthday, Nick!
