Wendy takes a stand on busing
"This video was created and performed by professional conceptual artists," reads the introduction to MTV's new version of The Damned, sung by the Plasmatics. "You should not try this at home." Shot in Arizona, the four-minute segment features lead singer Wendy O. Williams driving a school bus through a barricade made of 100 TVs, then jumping off the roof before the bus is blown to smithereens. Wendy sprained an ankle in rehearsals but enjoyed the filming nonetheless. "It was great to hear the crunch of TVs," she enthused.

Andy's acting up
Singer Andy Gibb, 24, spent much of 1982 loving and losing Dallas' Victoria Principal, but now it looks like he's found a new love: the stage. Currently touring as Joseph in Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, he begins a five-month Broadway stint in that role on Dec. 1. In the meantime Andy flexed his acting muscles by playing an all-American boy opposite 59-year-old Jean Stapleton in a cable TV production of Something's Afoot, co-authored by the late David Vos, who was also a PEOPLE computer typesetter. Taped in Toronto, the musical whodunit will be aired by Showtime next month. "Being on the legitimate stage is more rewarding than anything in my career," explains Andy.
