!! OMG, Gentleman Reg is Stevie Nicks !!


Gentleman Reg has created a touching tribute to Stevie Nicks by covering not just her song “Wild Heart,” but recreating an intimate backstage moment captured during a 1983 Rolling Stone photo shoot that took YouTube by storm last year (we posted it last February).
This video cover of “Wild Heart” is extremely faithful to the original Stevie Nicks YouTube video, down to singer Reg Vermue’s facial expressions and shy giggles in between phrases. !! omg blog !! is thrilled to be premiering it on the Internet, as we are confident that Reg shares Stevie’s ability to capture hearts over the YouTubes.
Here is what Reg had to say about the process and motivation for creating this video:

“The [original Stevie Nicks] YouTube clip was shown to me by my musician friend Jim Guthrie. And it was shown with this kind of ‘you HAVE to see this’ sort of enthusiasm. There’s something about it being spontaneous and totally live that just makes it easy to connect with. It has a singing in the shower privateness to it. You almost never get that kind of a glimpse into any celebrity’s life, and especially not one like her. She’s so in her element here. Needless to say, the [Stevie Nicks] album version of the song is completely different, way over produced, has way too many lyrics, and really makes me feel nothing.

So i came up with an interpretation of the song based on this clip and we’d been playing it in our live show over the last year, and people seemed to like it so we recorded it and put it on our e.p. that came out in December. And then in February we just had some time, and thought, let’s take it a step further and cover the actual clip.”

You can find Gentleman Reg’s recording of “Wild Heart” on their Heavy Head E.P., available for purchase on iTunes.

Dear readers! You may have heard that yesterday KFC (formerly known as Kentucky Fried Chicken!) began issuing a sandwich called the “Double Down,” which features two pieces of fried chicken where the bun should be. There’s also a weird yellow sauce that I don’t think is mustard. Yum!
While other blogs are busy reviewing the obviously-delicious concoction, we here at OMG Blog are going to celebrate the culinary landmark in our own special-means-retarded way. Readers, we want you to send us photos of yourself eating the Double Down. The catch? You must be nude or shirtless.
I’ll select several nominees from the entries, and the winner will be voted on by readers. You have until next Monday at midnight to send your photos to [email protected]!
(What’s the prize, you ask? I don’t know yet, but we’ll come up with something good!)

!! OMG, He’s Naked: Sex and the City 2’s John Antorino !!

A kind reader went through the whole cast list for the new Sex and the City movie to see if he could find any hot naked guys, and guess what? He hit paydirt with a bunch of porny pictures. While John Antorino is no certainly no Aidan– he plays “golfer”– he’s certainly a lot nakeder than I ever saw Aidan. And a lot nakeder than I’d ever want to see Mr. Big, who at this point I’m certain is wearing full body Spanx at all times.
A very naked John Antorino after the jump. NSFW. He’s wearing some kind of gladiator costume.
(Which reminds me– probably time to check in on Spartacus again…)

[[ OMG, there’s more: JUMP IN to read the rest ]]

Well isn’t this news exciting! Conan O’Brien is returning to the airwaves teevee wire thingies. Yay! Or maybe not? Or maybe even who cares?
Mr. O’Brien has struck a deal to begin a new late-night show on TBS, the illustrious home of Groundhog Day and boobless Sex and the City. Which I guess means we’ll never hear from our favorite ginger again. 🙁
Who will you be watching late-night? I’ll be sticking with Real Housewives reruns I guess. I mean, I’ve moved on!
