WHAT DO PRETTY BOYS DO?: There was a time when Neil Tennant claimed that he was going to base The Pet Shop Boys career on Menudo: in other words, when he and Chris got too old to look comfortable on stage, like the boyband, they'd step aside and draft in younger, cuter people. Of course, it might have been better if he'd stuck to his word, although there would have been a PSB problem matching the Menudo problem: an awful lot of former members all over the place. Sometimes, you catch a glimpse of the post-Menudo life, as this weekend in Florida when an otherwise unremarkable news story about a SWAT team in a car crash was enlivened by the news that one of the team was, yes, a former Menudo: the wonderfully named Miguel Cancel.
