Is that a man in the middle of that picture? Surely the sex on a stick you refer to can not be that person.
Yes, thats sex on a stick. If you then use the stick to gouge out your eyes.
She's a bit... much.
Supposedly, the hottest dancer at that time.
My teenage gay self thought he was gorgeous.
R10: what are you - headless?
To each his own. I can see a teenager of that era thinking he's gorgeous, but a grown man in 2012? I would hope your tastes would evolve a bit in the interim. He looks like an utter RELIC in those fashion victim getups.
In that linked pic, with Dong Johnson and PM Thomas, Shabby looks like a character Fred Armisen might portray, hilarious!
Back in the 80s, I thought he was hot but TCM showed Breakin' (speaking of movies that did not age well) last year and he is a bit goofy looking and had a really weak chin which is apparent in r14's picture.
Even if he was sex on a stick either back in the day or today or sometime in the future, the name "Shabba Doo" would quell any hardening of the penis towards him.
Is he gay?
Are YOU kidding, OP? I did all three of them - together AND separately!
No he is not gay...I happen to know him & his family since the 70's and he is far from being gay. He has two adult children and has been married twice (once to Lela Rochon from 'Waiting to Exhale' & 'Boomerang').
He really knew how to eyefuck a camera. He taught master classes to Justin "The First American Idol Runner-Up" Guarini.
Very good looking guy and still looks great @ 60! damn.
Didn't he choreograph the Who's That Girl tour and have an affair with Madonna while they were on the road?
Her brother wrote that she had a male companion assigned to her on all her tours.

First of all, I was a preteen and teenager in the mid to late 80's and I have never heard of this guy. Second, R12, when you stated the following:
To each his own. I can see a teenager of that era thinking he's gorgeous,
My answer is hell no! I'm sure there were some teens who thought he was hot back then,but many,many others did not define hot as a guy who looks like he did jail time, and he belonged to some street gang. There were many, many other heart throbs at that time who made us weak knead.
However, the guy looks really terrific for 60! In fact, I think he looks better than those YouTube videos that are posted.
When Breakin' was released I was living a fun, carefree life. It reminds me of hanging out with my friend Tony on Capitol Hill and dancing at Neighbors. Man, I miss him and those days.
soft spot for that movie and all who danced in it
Paging Mr. Doo, paging Mr. Doo! Mr. Doo, please pick up the white courtesy phone in the lobby!

We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
