In case you thought Matt Goss was famous.

On day nine of his bone-sober Vegas trip, HuffPo's Paul Carr, a British person, does a slo-mo takedown of local crooner Matt Goss, also a British person. Note: This shared Britishness is important! 

To say that Matt Goss is "famous in the UK" is like saying Jordan Knight is famous in the US. And yet, to read the press around Goss' show -- and to hear Goss onstage proudly boasting that "I was the youngest performer ever to play Wembley Stadium" you'd be forgiven for believing that Matt Goss has always been a suave, chart-topping solo act, as opposed to one third of a successful boyband famed as much for their torn jeans as for their one big record.
