Jimmy Fallon and Stevie Nicks re-create 'Stop Draggin' My Heart Around' -- VIDEO

When the incomparable Stevie Nicks made an appearance on The Tonight Show Wednesday, playing one or two of her hits just wasn’t going to be enough for Jimmy Fallon. The musically-inclined host planned something much more memorable — re-creating the music video for “Stop Draggin’ My Heart Around,” Nicks’s 1981 duet with Tom Petty.

Fallon assumes Petty’s role — shaggy blond wig, floral shirt, and all — while Nicks proves she’s still got it, not to mention a sense of humor. Here’s Fallon’s version:

'Star-Crossed' reminds us of pop culture's greatest breakup line: The 'different worlds' excuse

It only took two episodes of Star-Crossed for someone to utter the line we’d all been waiting for (and secretly hoping would kick off the pilot): “We’re from two different worlds.” To be fair, in Star-Crossed‘s case, that is an accurate statement. Emery is from Earth and Roman is from Atria, a planet we know little about other than that it’s dying and yet somehow superior to Mars. Intergalactic drama, amirite?

But in watching Roman pull the “different worlds” card, I couldn’t help but be transported back to the second episode of The O.C. Fans of the show will remember the moment well. It was the first time Ryan and Marissa confessed that they had any sort of feelings for each other. She showed up at the model home on his last night asking to stay, and he told her, “We’re from different worlds.” She tried to deny it, but he followed it up with, “I’m not like you.” Basically, he was comparing her privileged, party-filled upbringing to his grainy, misdemeanor-filled life in Chino.

Long story short, this got me thinking: How many times have I heard some version of this “different worlds” crap, and what does it even mean?! This is what I came up with: READ FULL STORY

Throwback Thursday: Lindsay Lohan covers 'Edge of Seventeen' and reminds us all of 2005

Just like the white winged dove sings a song just like she’s singing, so does Lindsay Lohan.

It’s easy to forget that once upon a time, Lindsay Lohan was not only an actress but also a singer — not only belting pop tunes in her family-friendly movies (“Ultimate” was really fun!), but also releasing two albums that gave us such songs as “Rumors” and the sob-fest “Confessions of A Broken Heart (Daughter to Father).” (Ugh. That video is still a knife through the heart.)

But often forgotten among those is a cover of the Stevie Nicks classic slow burner “Edge of Seventeen,” which Lohan recorded as part of her 2005 album A Little More Personal (Raw).  Happily, as of today, it’s forgotten no more! Lohan performed a karaoke version of the the song this week in New York City. TMZ  — which got the footage, naturally – reports the impromptu show was for a birthday party. (For New York Republican Party Finance Committee chairman Matthew Mellon, of all people.)

The video isn’t the best quality, but Lohan looks happy and sounds pretty good — which, given her history as the human embodiment of exhaustion,we’ll count as an entry in the ‘Win’ column. Is she testing the waters for a new album, perhaps? Or maybe we’ll be treated to a musical performance or two on Lohan’s upcoming OWN reality show, which premieres next month.

'Glee': Madonna! Stevie Wonder! The top ten tribute episodes -- ranked! VIDEO

As anyone with even a passing familiarity with Glee — or iTunes charts — is aware, the show knows its way around a tribute episode, a.k.a. an episode where all of the music is from one artist or film. A ‘tribute episode’ also typically means there are seven or eight songs in the hour-long dramedy, as opposed to the usual standard of four. Great news for those of us who are watching the show for the karaoke! (I can’t be the only one dancing around my living room to Madonna or Lady Gaga Glee covers, right?)

Last night, Glee added Stevie Wonder to the diverse group of icons the show has celebrated, which got me thinking — where does Wonder fall among the Glee kids’ homages? Below, check out our rankings of the top ten tribute episodes Glee has undertaken in the past four seasons — along with some videos of the best performance from each musical-icon-filled hour.

Stevie Nicks has harsh words for Nicki Minaj, apologizes for her remarks

Think Stevie Nicks is as gentle and soft as one of her ethereal shawls? Think again. Fleetwood Mac’s ex-frontwoman is rock royalty — and she’s not afraid to lay a verbal smackdown on someone who hasn’t paid her dues. Update: Nicks has apologized for the remarks she made about Minaj — see her full statement below.

Nicks had some choice words for Nicki Minaj after hearing about the rapper’s fight with Mariah Carey on the set of American Idol. “How dare this little girl!” she told The Daily – Minaj is in her late 20s; Nicks is 64 — adding, “If I had been Mariah, I would have walked over to Nicki and strangled her to death right there.” READ FULL STORY
