Brief news from here and elsewhere:

— Aw, come on, can’t Kelly Clarkson buy something nice for herself for once? The pop star inadvertently kicked up a fuss when she innocently bought a ring that once belonged to Jane Austen at an auction — but British literary fans went nuts, and now its museum home has raised enough money to cancel the sale. (Guardian)

— The Baltimore Ravens are acknowledging that something goofy happened to Jacoby Jones on a party bus tour of D.C. early Monday. Whether that truly involved getting whacked with a champagne bottle by a stripper, as TMZ claims, remains unconfirmed. D.C. police say they responded to the scene but that the injured person declined to say what happened or get treatment. (AP, Baltimore Sun)

“I was sitting and listening to Jason Russell describe his symptoms…. Saying, ‘Um, this sounds pretty familiar . . . I mean, I wasn’t ready to go run naked in the streets. Let’s make that very clear.”

— Oprah Winfrey telling “Access Hollywood” about a near-brush with a nervous breakdown last year, and how an interview with the gone-bonkers “Kony 2012″ movement leader brought home the severity of her emotional condition.
