10 Reasons Why We Love Stevie Nicks
by Chelsea Conte

When you look up Stevie Nicks on Urban Dictionary you get a list of results ranging from the the silly to the right on point. But in the 46 years since Stevie Nicks—the white witch, the singer/songwriter, the fashion icon, the “hottest older woman on the face of the earth,” and the performer—formed her first band Fritz with Lindsey Buckingham, the Fleetwood Mac singer has not left the cultural conversation. Here are some of the reasons why we love her so.

1. She appeared on American Horror Story.
2. She’s a fashion icon.
3. She twirls.
4. She officiates weddings.
5. She can take a joke.
6. She reunited with Fleetwood Mac.
7. She’s an amazing songwriter.
8. She opened for Jimi Hendrix and Janis Joplin.
9. She appeared in Sound City.
10.Her drama

Lindsay Lohan On the Edge of Incredible -- She CRUSHES Stevie Nicks Live
For some strange reason this made a big splash across social media and the media outlets that tend to lean more heavily towards gossip.  I guess it's because it's Lindsay and she hasn't really sung in quite some time.

Lindsay Lohan sung “Edge of Seventeen” at New York Republican Party Finance Committee chairman Matthew Mellon's 50th birthday on Tuesday night.  You can't really get a good sense of how she really sounds in the amateur video or in the video below... But in the longer clip released earlier in the week, she sounded alright, nothing more than what anyone else would sound like with a bit of singing experience had they been out at a karaoke bar.

Back when Lindsay Lohan's second album came out she appeared on some awards show and did the single "Father to Daughter" I think it was called and then went into "Edge Of Seventeen". It was so horrible and audience was cringing. Obviously she hasn't learned her lesson.

I'm not going to bash Lindsay for performing a song she obviously loves just because I don't care for her public image. I also didn't care for Taylor Swift singing "Rhiannon," or Miley Cyrus performing "Landslide," but I appreciate that younger artists want to perform Stevie's songs. I don't care for Lindsay's treatment of "Edge," but I will say this girl did at one time have a pretty good voice. Maybe she can stay clean and find it again.

I have watched a few videos of her singing 'Edge of Seventeen' and I honestly can't hear her voice. I don't know whether it's really weak or if it was the sound set-up. Either way, leave it to Stevie as NOBODY can do 'Edge of Seventeen' like her :)

I'm sure Stevie threw up a little bit when she heard her song was being used to serenade a Republican party finance committee chairman. Gross. It's all gross no matter how you look at it.
Lindsay Lohan should stick to acting.
Someone needs to reel her in. Being a whore at a Republican FC chair birthday party is just as awful as being arrested for being drunk or on drugs in public.
Poor Stevie. This is embarrassing.

Happy to hear that Jeremy Spencer is feeling the heat! I believe his victims deserve more justice.
Unfortunately pedi files often manage to avoid the law. It is good to see he cant avoid the law of public opinion. As a fan of Fleetwood Mac (the line up of the famous 5) it distresses me very much to see him cashing in on their name! THEY should not allow it!
