Watch: Stevie Nicks Performs ‘Stop Draggin’ My Heart Around’ On ‘The Tonight Show’

With Jimmy Fallon as Tom Petty
Stevie Nicks and "Tom Petty"

The rock goddess Stevie Nicks made an appearance on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon last night and she performed her classic hit song Stop Draggin’ My Heart Around, her duet with Tom Petty. Unfortunately, Petty couldn’t be on the show last night to perform the song with Stevie so Jimmy got all dolled up as Tom Petty to perform with her instead (which is something that he likes to do from time to time). Stevie sounded amazing … she always does but, ugh, we are so lucky to have her! Click the video above to watch Stevie and “Tom” perform Stop Draggin’ My Heart Around last night.

‘Battlestar Galactica’ May Be Rebooted In A New Movie

A complete reimagining

Back in 2010 we learned that the new version of Battlestar Galactica, which was rebooted from the earlier original TV series of the late 70s, was getting a spin-off prequel series that ended up airing online only. Today we learn that plans are in the works to reboot the Battlestar Galactica franchise with a new movie that will reimagine the story entirely. As a huge fan of the BSG of the 00s, I was hoping that we might get a movie that features the characters that we already love … but it sounds like this new version of the story will feature a new cast entirely.

Listen: Scott Bradlee & Dave Koz Present A Smooth Jazz Version Of The ‘Game Of Thrones’ Theme Song

It's cool, daddy-o
'Game of Thrones' Smoooothed Out

Pianist Scott Bradlee teamed up with sax man Dave Koz to record a Smooth jazz version of the Game of Thrones theme song and as you can hear above, it kinda rules the 7 realms. Dave Koz and I go WAY back. When I played saxophone in middle school and high school band, Koz was my favorite sax player to look up to (I was a member of his fan club and may have stalked him a bit at an in-store appearance). I’ve been a big fan ever since … so it’s great to see that he’s still doing great things today. The GoT theme song is pretty dope in its original form but if you’re in the mood for a smooth, jazzy version of the song … then this version is for you. Enjoy.

Watch: Lindsay Lohan Admits To Drinking Less Than Two Months After Leaving Rehab

"I’ve screwed up. I screwed up, and that’s okay."
"I had a glass of wine"

Lindsay Lohan cavalierly admitted on her docu-series Lindsay last night that she had fallen off the wagon and drank alcohol less than two months after she left rehab. Responding to questions about her sobriety from her life coach AJ Johnson as well as speculation from the press, Lindsay finally admitted that she had “one glass of wine” because the guy she was dating at the time was a drinker. Confessing to falling off the wagon can be a very healthy thing for someone in recovery but, once again, Lindsay appears to be laying blame on other people for her faults. When her life coach presses her on the matter, Lindsay just cuts her off then gets rid of her as her life coach. Watch the clip above to hear Lindsay explain herself and see if you think she is truly on the path to real recovery.
