Stevie Nicks Intends To Go Undercover At “Night Of 1,000 Stevies”

“I read about ["Night Of 1,000 Stevies," an annual event where fans dress up as Stevie Nicks] and told my dad, ‘It’s a huge party thrown by fabulous gay men and women. They love my clothes and my fashion and my songs, and they all go to it and play my music and lip synch!’ And my dad was very conservative, but he said, ‘That is really great, honey!’ One day I’m going to show up, and they are not going to know it, because I’m going to be dressed as the best Stevie ever. I will be unrecognizably fantastic until I go up on stage and take the mic and burst into ‘Edge of Seventeen’ and blow everyone away.”

Stevie Nicks told OUT magazine on how she plans to sneak into “Night Of 1,000 Stevies,” a 24-year-old fan event where everyone dresses like Stevie and performs her songs, and blow some minds. The best Stevie ever indeed! It kinda sounds  like that episode of “Will & Grace” when Jack mistakes the actual Cher for a low-rent Cher impersonator. [OUT] [Images via Getty and OUT magazine]

Oscar Pistorius Acquitted Of Premeditated Murder

  • Today, South African paralympic athlete Oscar Pistorius was acquitted of premediated murder for killing his girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp, on Valentine’s Day last year. The judge said it could not be proved that Pistorius intended to kill Steenkamp; he has maintained that he accidentally shot her because thought intruders were in his home. Pistorius was found not guilty of both premeditated murder, which carried a sentence of 25 years, and homicide charges. He still faces charges for culpable homicide, which is similar to manslaughter charges in the U.S. [New York Times, NPR]

TLN Ray Rice
  • The AP has confirmed that an anonymous law enforcement official sent the video of NFL player Ray Rice punching his then-fiancée unconcscious to the NFL three months ago. The AP also listened to a voicemail confirming that the video was received by someone there on April 9: a female voice says thanks and “You’re right. It’s terrible.” The NFL has consistently maintained they did not see the violent video until Monday, when it became public by TMZ. The league has been receiving harsh criticism for originally only suspending Rice for two games. [AP]
  • According to NBC Nightly News, the NFL’s response to the AP’s confirmation is “We have no knowledge of this … We will look into it.” Uh huh. Lemme guess … the dog ate the tape? An intern lost it? It walked away and moved to Bali? [Twitter.com/NBCNightlyNews]
  • Following TMZ’s release of a video on Monday, the National Domestic Violence Hotline received nearly double an increase in calls from domestic violence victims, their family, and friends. [Huffington Post] Keep reading »

Shit, Haley Joel Osment Grew Up!

Remember Haley Joel Osment, that cute little kid from “The Sixth Sense” and “A.I.” and “Forrest Gump”? Somewhere along the way he has grown up and become completely unrecognizable … but he also kinda looks exactly the same. With long, slicked back hair and a natty suit, he could be playing a sleazy used car salesman on “Mad Men,” or perhaps a young Philip Seymour Hoffman in anything. But this is Osment actually on set for “Yoga Hosers,” a Kevin Smith film which is described by IMDB thusly: “Two teenage yoga enthusiasts team up with a legendary man-hunter to battle with an ancient evil presence that is threatening their major party plans.” Somehow Nazis factor into this plot, because the paparazzi photos of Osment on set all have swastikas in the background.

Miley Cyrus: “If You Drink A Lot Of Pineapple Juice You’re Going To Have Yummy Cum”

“This one’s a vibrator, which I got from a fan. They threw it on stage. And that’s a joint [attached to it], so that’s the vibe. I’ve gotten more and more about piling things on, but I try to put thought into everything. Even though it’s so stupid, I did the pineapple because you know what they say about pineapple, right? Yummy cum? If you drink a lot of pineapple juice you’re going to have yummy cum. So that’s why I put it on the dick with a bunch of babies, and it says, ‘Fuck.’ I try to think about everything so it has a story to me.”

Miley Cyrus has a glue gun and she knows how to use it. Her artwork is appearing in Jeremy Scott’s New York Fashion Week show today and will be displayed at the V magazine office’s gallery from tomorrow onward. (Perhaps this also explains why Miley decked out her five-foot bong with fake flowers, beads and a plastic dinosaur? It was art.) Somehow, pineapples figure strongly in her artistic vision, so she attached one to a dick with a bunch of babies and wrote the word “fuck.” Thanks for the semen tip, Miley!
