Jimmy Fallon Recruits Crosby, Stills, And Nash To Sing Iggy Azalea's 'Fancy'

Jimmy Fallon Recruits Crosby, Stills, And Nash To Sing Iggy Azal
Jimmy Fallon knew he'd have to add some music legends if he wanted to perform a Neil Young inspired cover of Iggy Azalea's #1 hit Fancy on The Tonight Show.

Fallon - as he's done multiple times before - put on his flat-brimmed hat, plaid shirt, jacket, and jeans to emulate the style of the venerable rocker. He then strapped on an acoustic guitar and a harmonica and sang Azalea's hit like it was a folk hit – and it would pass muster, if it weren't for the lyrics ("And I'm still in the Murda Bizness / I could hold you down, like I'm givin' lessons in physics").

When it came time to sing t...

Crosby Stills & Nash star David Crosby has marked what would have been pal Jerry Garcia's 70th birthday with a poem.

He would have done the job well
Coming from some crazy angle
He'd have known which story to tell
he'd tell the truth about real music
he knew the truth long before he fell

His fingers would touch his guitar neck
My axe would be pressed to my ...

Frank Miller
"Sin City" director Frank Miller has taken aim at the Occupy Wall Street protesters in a furious new blog post, urging the anti-corporate greed activists to get organized or go home.

While many celebrities are supporting the movement, which began in New York over two months ago and is now spreading worldwide, the writer/director is far from impressed with what he's seen and he considers the individuals taking part nothing more than "losers."

He writes, "The 'Occupy' movement... is nothing but a pack of louts, thieves, and rapists, an unruly mob, fed by Woodstock-era nostalgia and putrid f...
