Legendary Blondie singer Debbie Harry came out as bisexual in a recent interview with London's Daily Mail.

Harry founded her legendary punk-era band with longtime boyfriend Chris Hastings, but says that since they broke up in the late 80s, she's enjoyed several relationships with women.

Asked about her attraction, Harry replied that "women are just more sensual."

Debbie pointed that most of her long-term relationships have been with men, but she added that she has no plans to stop dating women anytime soon.

Debbie may be a little late to the party, coming out at 68, but we applaud her courage nonetheless. She joins a long list of celebrities who have come out in recent years.

U.S. Congressman Vance McAllister (R-LA) has admitted that video surveillance footage, allegedly showing him kissing a staffer who is not his wife, is him.

First reported by the Ouachita Citizen, a West Monroe, La., newspaper in his district, the grainy video came from an anonymous source last December.

It shows a man turning off the lights in a hallway before briefly exiting the frame. When he comes back in frame, he is joined by a woman and they kiss passionately.

None of the footage, which the newspaper says was shot in Vance McAllister’s Monroe district office, clearly shows the faces of the two individuals.

The woman is identified as his district scheduler, Melissa Anne Hixon Peacock, 33. On Monday, McAllister issued a statement admitting he is the man on video:

“There’s no doubt I’ve fallen short and I’m asking for forgiveness. I’m asking for forgiveness from God, my wife, my kids, my staff and my constituents who elected me to serve.”

Memo to armed robbers: don't eff with 7-Eleven! 

They may be getting paid just over minimum wage, but the two convenience store clerks in the video above put their lives on the line to strip a would-be robber of his weapon and send the crook fleeing from the scene.

"I turned and saw the gun," said one of the San Leandro, CA clerks, identified only as Mark. "He demanded cash and I held up my hands. He started swinging the gun back and forth. When the gun got close to him, I saw my opportunity. I grabbed it by both hands and yanked it out of his hand."

Things very nearly got ugly, as you can see around the 1-minute mark of the video when one of the clerks begins pursuing the suspect, gun in hand, but then thinks better of it. 

Naturally, area police issued an official statement discouraging civilians from engaging in this sort of vigilante behavior, but while it may not be safe for folks to take the law into their own hands it sure makes for some great viral videos!

You only live once, people.

That's the message Stian Ytterdah is sending out, as the Norwegian teenager who made news last week for getting a McDonald’s receipt tattooed on his arm (seriously) is at it again.

Ytterdah told a local newspaper at the time that his friends forced him to get the ink because he had been “too active on the ladies front.”

So... why did he then add to his unusual collection by getting another receipt tattoo on his left arm? This one from the tattoo parlor behind the first ridiculous marking?

Isn't it obvious? "#yolo," Ytterdah wrote on Facebook as a caption to the following picture:

Receipt Tattoo

The question, of course, is now this: Why stop there?

Was that a low blow? Or just lively banter? Either way, Alex Trebek was called out for wearing a suit made in a child labor sweatshop this week on Jeopardy!

Battle of the Decades competitor Tom Kavanaugh was asked by the game show host how he would spend his winnings if he beat out the other contestants.

Trebek said, "Million dollars at stake in this tournament, if you win it you plan to spend a lot of it to work on a documentary, what's the documentary about?"

"It's on sweatshop labor in our country and around the world," the contestant replied, explaining why he had the idea to make this particular film.

"So I went to Bangladesh about 10 years ago and toured a garment factory and thought, 'What if I saw a shirt that I was wearing being made by these people."

"It's to try to put a face on who might make our clothes," he added. "So maybe you can find out the names of the 8-year-olds who made your fancy suit there, Alex."

[Crickets.]

The audience immediately reacted with gasps and even Trebek took a step back to process the dig ... what do you think of Kavanaugh's comment?

A Florida man working the desk at a Tampa Bay apartment complex for seniors nonchalantly disposed of the body of a resident who'd jumped 16 stories to her death.

Mistaking the corpse for a mannequin from an April Fools' prank. Obviously.

Tampa Bay Times reporter Weston Phippen detailed the story yesterday:

April Fools'

    Ronald Benjamin, 61, looked onto the patio and saw a shape on the ground. It looked to him like a mannequin. An April Fools' Day joke, he concluded, and went back to work.

    Two hours later, another employee of the senior housing complex at 440 Fourth Ave. N told Benjamin about the shape on the patio. It was just a prank, Benjamin assured her.

    When a woman and her teen son came by to deliver the Tampa Bay Times, Benjamin asked the boy to help him move the mannequin into a Dumpster.

It gets worse ...

Starbucks has issued an apology to patron Megan Pinion after the Louisiana native received two cups of coffee with Satantic symbols painted in caramel syrup on the foam.

The unusual incident took place in Baton Rouge over the weekend and included one order decorated with a pentagram and another with the number 666.

"I am in no way judging [the barista's] beliefs or dis-meriting his beautiful artwork," Pinion, a Catholic teacher, wrote alongside an image of the two coffees on the official Starbucks Facebook page. "I am however judging his lack of professionalism and respect for others."

Miranda Barbour, the self-professed serial killer from Pennsylvania, is a pathological liar who was just a fan of the Showtime series Dexter, according to her sister.

She is borrowing straight from the the award-winning show about a serial killer who kills miscreants who beat the system, Ashley Dean told The Daily Item in Sunbury, Pa.

"If you listen to what she is saying, she is using descriptions from the show," says Dean, 22, who lives in Alaska. "Miranda is just saying these things."

Dexter ended its run last September after eight popular seasons.

Miranda Barbour, 19, and her husband, Elytte, 22, are charged with the murder of Troy LeFerrara, 42, who police say was lured to death via Craiglist.

Barbour, who appeared in court Tuesday for the case but didn't say a word, claimed to have killed at least 22 people but fewer than 100 other people.

Her sister says not to believe the disturbed Craigslist killer, at all:

The incident marks the third shooting at a US Army post in less than 7 months. The previous shooting at Fort Hood resulted in 13 deaths and more than 30 injuries. Nadal Malik Hasan was sentenced to death for that 2009 killing spree.

Army officials issued a statement earlier emphasizing that they are still investigating today's incident and details regarding how and why this shooting took place are still forthcoming.
