PEOPLE Video Exclusive: R.E.M.'s Michael Stipe Speaks Out

Originally posted 03/21/2008 09:30AM


In a recent interview with Spin magazine, R.E.M. frontman Michael Stipe made comments about the positive effect of being an out, gay public figure – quotes that quickly caught traction online. The interview triggered a flurry of discussion about his own sexuality – and his decision to finally acknowledge publicly that he's gay. However, Stipe, 48, has been candid about being "queer" (as he describes himself) for years – even being named in 1995 to Out magazine's "Out 100" list of gay celebrities. Now, for the first time since his much-buzzed about interview, Stipe speaks out to PEOPLE in this taped video statement from Paris.

PAINED: Dr. Emily Pollard, a plastic surgeon, pierced Oprah Winfrey's ears on the TV mogul's show Monday, inserting a small diamond stud. "Ohhhh!" Oprah reacted as the needle did its trick. "I need a shot of tequila!" The audience also screamed, the New York Post reports. Only one question remained: Why hadn't Oprah done this before? "I just turned 51, and I'm feeling stronger and better than ever," she said. "This year, I wanted to give myself a special birthday present."
