LIVE | The gold dust woman joined pop's golden boy at his recent L.A. gig
The landslide can't possibly bring him down.
Pop's newest crown prince Harry Styles, breaking away from the long shadow of One Direction with arguably more grace than his former bandmates (we're looking at you Liam Payne), played a secret gig at legendary Los Angeles rock club The Troubadour. He was joined onstage, much to the shock of the audience, by none other than one of the reigning goddesses of the classic rock pantheon: Stevie Nicks herself.
With the recent announcements of Nicks working with younger artists (she's slated to feature on Lana Del Rey's forthcoming record, Lust For Life), her appearance doesn't come as a surprise. Regardless, everyone in attendance was positively stunned as she joined Styles onstage. The pair teamed up for a re-imagining of "Leather and Lace," Nicks' iconic duet with Don Henley, and an intimate version of "Two Ghosts" from Styles' self-titled solo debut.

The show-stopper here, as is to be expected, was "Landslide." We usually wouldn't want anyone but Lindsey Buckingham to accompany Nicks on the track, let alone infringe on her vocals, but Styles did the track justice with a suave finesse that puts to rest any doubts of his rock star cred. If the solo album didn't convince you, him going head-to-head with the Gold Dust Woman and coming out with an embrace (and a firestorm of social media response) should be more than enough to silence the naysayers.

There's an entire genre of YouTube videos that consists of nothing but news bloopers, and they're equal parts hilarious and panic-inducing.
"Right after the break, we're going to interview Erik Weihenmayer, who climbed the highest mountain in the world, Mount Everest, but he's gay—I mean, he's gay, excuse me, he's blind."
Back in the early 2000's a young news anchor in New Mexico had a slip of the tongue on live TV that has enterred the annals of news blooper history.

Cynthia Izaguirre had just gotten done reporting on a separate story discussing activism for gay rights, and was setting up a segment with the first blind man to climb Mount Everest, and her thoughts got twisted on the way to her mouth, resulting in a 14-second clip that would live on in infamy.
Now that Banksy's "Flower Thrower" trademark has been revoked, anyone can profit off his work.
This week anonymous street artist Banksy officially lost the European trademark to his "Flower Thrower" mural.
The guerrilla graffiti artist had engaged in a prolonged legal battle with the small greeting card company Full Colour Black—which was selling products featuring the image of a Palestinian man throwing a bouquet of flowers. But now a panel at the European Union Intellectual Property Office has announced their decision to revoke the artist's trademark on the grounds that he could not definitively prove himself to be the mural's creator.
