Veteran adult star Vicky Vette is proud to celebrate two nominations for awards by AVN. The popular star picked up her second consecutive nomination for Best Solo Girl Website. Her adult toy line—the Vicky Quickie made by Doc Johnson—was also just nominated for Best Product Line For Men. Vette is one of the most familiar faces in adult worldwide having just been mentioned during a Jon Stewart monologue on the Daily Show (Vette's mentioned at around the 12.35 minute mark) and being featured on the front page of Norway's leading newspaper as "Norway's Twitter Queen" (story here). Vette is also the reigning Miss Freeones.
Vette also made positive headlines over the weekend in traditionally conservative anti-porn Indonesia for her support of the National soccer team. In a country where on Friday, Jennifer Lopez was forced to cover up during her concert so as not to offend audiences and where Lady Gaga cancelled a concert in the heavily Muslim country, Vette has been getting front page news after promising kisses on Twitter to one of the Indonesian players. Her tweets became the most popular tweets for #Indonesia over the weekend.
Vette has become somewhat of a mainstream celebrity in Indonesia, having starred in the mainstream cult-classic Indonesian horror movie Pacar Hantu Perawan last year and because she has been regularly tweeting with other Indonesian celebrities. With porn of any kind remaining 100 percent taboo and blocked, the population's embrace of Vette on Twitter is that much more surprising.
"It is amazing to think it's been almost eight years since I got my first ever AVN nomination for Best Tease," Vicky reflected. "I will never forget the day. I am very proud of the work I have done on the internet and my website has been my focus for years, so being nominated two years running in that category is sincerely appreciated. I also just about fell on the floor when I heard the Vicky Quickie line was nominated. My vagina is very proud… ha-ha. I can't wait to get to Vegas for the AEE Convention & Awards Show. It's always a lot of fun."
Regarding the Indonesian press, Vicky added, "It was a really wacky week. Norway, to the Daily Show, to Indonesia. I don't quite know how to explain the Indonesian connection. They tweet me 'Auntie' every single day. It's a connection that started over the years after a band in Indonesia named themselves after me. It's pretty funny that a porn star is popular in a country that bans porn. Twitter works in amazing ways."
Vette will be appearing with a number of the VNA Girls at the AEE/AVN Convention in Las Vegas at the Hard Rock Casino, January 17-19. Vicky is the second most followed active adult star on Twitter with almost 392,000 followers and runs the popular VNA Network of Pornstar sites with stars such as Nikki Benz, Puma Swede, Julia Ann, Sara Jay & others. She just launched a live camshow network of solo girl sites, which is already up to over 30 participating girls.
