Brittany's 'The Voice' Blog: Catching Up With...Beverly McClellan

October 4th, 2011 11:00am EDT
Beverly McClellan
Here's the latest on and around NBC's The Voice: I shine the spotlight on Beverly McClellan, the finalist for Team Christina who exemplified what the series was all about - not just being yourself, but being proud of yourself.

She was an example of the blind auditions in action; she didn't look the part of a conventional music star, but she had the talent and the personality. After catching the eye of Christina Aguilera, Beverly let her self-confidence guide her throughout the competition. She was being herself, loud and proud and without fear.

Her rendition of The Who's "Baba O'Riley" ...

Stevie Nicks
Rocker Stevie Nicks owes her songwriting success to the boyfriend who broke her heart at the age of 15.

The Fleetwood Mac star reveals she was so devastated by the split, she was inspired to pick up her guitar and pen her very first tune.

Nicks recalls, "I have a lot of amazing memories, and I really do pull from my past (when songwriting)... (My first song) was about the first boy that I fell in love with, who was, like, the guy in 10th grade and I was so taken with him. We went out for, like, a month, and then he started going out with my best friend and that ended in two weeks.

Fleetwood Mac Planning Summer Tour For 2012

September 13th, 2011 10:00pm EDT
Fleetwood Mac
Fleetwood Mac founder Mick Fleetwood has confirmed reports suggesting the supergroup will reform in 2012.

Just two weeks after singer/guitarist Lindsey Buckingham told fans he "wouldn't be shocked" if the group got back together for an album and tour, Fleetwood has made the idea official.

He tells Billboard.com, "We're so disorganized as a band... All we know is we're working next year. I'll get a phone call that we're going to start rehearsing - usually in a blind panic because we leave everything way too late. But we're all up for touring in the early summer of next year, I think, and o...

Armchair Musician: "The Voice," Week Ten

June 30th, 2011 9:25am EDT
The Voice
Two and a half months later, my journey with The Voice has come to an end. I'm sad to walk away, but I'm also overjoyed (and grateful) to have gone out on top.

Everyone wants to finish on a high note, and this show certainly did that, for the most part. The final performance show saw the four finalists duet with their coaches - a move which signified their having flourished over the course of the competition and become equals. Dia Frampton and Blake Shelton were certainly having a great time performing Tom Petty's "I Won't Back Down," complete with Blues Brothers-esque black suits a...

NBC's The Voice has crowned its first winner! After a heated 10-week competition, the fate of the four finalists - Dia Frampton, Beverly McClellan, Vicci Martinez and Javier Colon - was in the hands of TV viewers for the last time, with the top two finalists - Dia and Javier separated by only 2 percent of the final vote, according to host Carson Daly; but it was Connecticut native Colon who took the prize - $100,000 and a recording contract with Universal Republic.

Stevie Nicks
Stevie Nicks wrote one of the songs on her new album shortly after the 9/11 terrorist attacks in New York as an outlet for her shock and grief following the atrocities.

'Dancing With The Stars' Week Nine Results: Ralph Macchio, The Karate Kid Is Struck Down

May 18th, 2011 9:17am EDT
Ralph Macchio Eliminated on DWTS
One more week and we’ll be calling ‘Dancing With The Stars’ season 12 over, and I haven’t ever seen a season like this. Oh, I know that Tom’s announcer voice is always going on about “the most talked about cast” or “the tightest competition” or the “most mind-blowing thing on earth” (okay, maybe not that one, but he might as well), but they say that every single season. This season really is tight, and it’s getting tighter.

Before we jump into the elimination show, and all the extraneous things it entails, we take an hour for an extraneous freestyle special. It was just what i...

'Glee' Recap: A Whole Lot Of Rumours

May 4th, 2011 11:41am EDT
Glee Kristin Chenoweth
This week is a tribute to the Fleetwood Mac album, Rumours and all the plot points are built around a track list that includes “Dreams” , “Don’t Stop,” and “Go Your Own Way,” among others.

Sue is back after a Gaga-mandated hiatus, and the first item on her agenda is to revitalize the school newspaper and get the gossip mill powered up and running. It’s actually one of her more sensible strategic efforts to take down the Glee Club. Using gossip columnists and tabloid coverage to take down a pop act?!? Look no further than the train-wreck eras of Britney, Whitney, and Lindsay, or Saved By...

Stevie Nicks Says Lindsay Lohan 'Will Never Play Me Until She Gets Serious'

May 3rd, 2011 11:32pm EDT
Stevie Nicks
Rocker Stevie Nicks insists she'll never give Lindsay Lohan the OK to play her in a biopic - until she proves her worth as a serious actress.

Lohan has expressed an interest in portraying the Fleetwood Mac singer, but Nicks wants the actress to prove she's no longer a mess first.

The singer tells CNN.com, "That's never going to happen unless she cleans up her life and becomes the great actress I feel she can be."

But Nicks insists that doesn't mean she's not a fan of the Mean Girls star, who has spent the last 18 months jumping between jail and rehab after a series of personal lows.

The Fleetwood Mac star admits she has been hooked on the film adaptations of Stephenie Meyer's hit books ever since she saw 2009's "The Twilight Saga: New Moon," and she feels an affinity with Bella Swan over her romance with vampire Edward Cullen, played by Robert Pattinson.

Dianna Agron was moved to tears when Stevie Nicks visited the Glee set earlier this month after the singer delivered a moving speech about the importance of music in schools.

The actress and her co-stars were left awestruck when the Fleetwood Mac legend arrived for a day on the set of the high school series last week.

Nicks revealed to the cast she would have been a teacher had she not been a musician - and Agron was overcome with emotion when the star gave her motivating talk.

She tells Entertainment Tonight, "We had the pleasure of Stevie Nicks being on set... she kind of made us al...

Stevie Nicks: 'The Internet Has Destroyed Rock'

August 25th, 2010 12:30pm EDT
Stevie Nicks
Stevie Nicks is convinced the internet has "destroyed" rock 'n' roll because young bands are no longer given the chance to develop if they don't achieve instant success.

The Fleetwood Mac singer is vehemently opposed to the expansion of the internet, blaming the growth of the online music industry for stifling upcoming talent and discouraging youngsters from socializing with their peers.

She tells the New York Daily News, "The internet has destroyed rock. Children no longer develop social graces. They don't hang out anymore. I'm financially stable. I'm OK. But what about the kids trying...

Naomi Judd
Country music veteran-turned-activist Naomi Judd has thrown her support behind Taylor Swift after the young singer was heavily criticized for her performance with Stevie Nicks at the Grammy Awards.

Swift's off-key duet with the Fleetwood Mac star has been put down to nerves and sound problems onstage at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, and Judd - the mother of actress Ashley and country singer Wynonna - has the four-time Grammy winner's back.

In a letter to the editor of The Tennessean, Judd, calls Swift a "dazzling performer" and attributes Swift's less-than-perfect Grammy performa...

Kelly Clarkson Wades Into Taylor Swift Grammy Controversy
Kelly Clarkson has written an open letter to a record executive who defended Taylor Swift's off-key performance at the 2010 Grammy Awards by declaring, "This is not American Idol." Big Machine label boss Scott Borchetta came to Swift's aid on Thursday after critics picked apart her duet with Stevie Nicks at the Los Angeles ceremony last week. Borchetta said Swift should be excused for the slip and cited the hit TV talent show in his defense of the singer.

He said, "This is not American Idol. This is not a competition of getting up and seeing who can sing the highest note. This is about ...

Unexpected, Untimely And Shocking Deaths In Music

July 1st, 2009 11:15am EDT
Shocking music deaths
Heart attacks. Plane crashes. Car crashes. Drug overdoses. Murder. Over the years, these have become some of the most common causes of the often shocking deaths in the music industry. On a lighter note, some might argue that even ham sandwiches have been involved.

Regardless of the cause, take a look back at these musical icons that have left us way, way, way too soon - yet have left us with legacies that will live on forever. The majority of these deaths, in addition to being sudden and shocking, were in some way either ironic or just completely messed up. Rock on...

Stevie Nicks On Why She Quit Pre-Show Tequila Shot

April 11th, 2009 3:52pm EDT
Stevie Nicks
Stevie Nicks gave up her traditional pre-concert ritual of knocking back a shot of tequila when she started to realize she was risking upsetting fans with a poor performance.

The ever-professional Fleetwood Mac star feared she'd go too far one night and appear drunk onstage, so she quit drinking altogether.

She tells WWD.com, "I used to have a shot of tequila before I went on stage and it would give me this acid thing. Finally, I said, 'This isn't worth it.' I can't get a good enough buzz on one shot of tequila to risk having an acid bubble my entire show.

Lindsay Lohan To Play Stevie Nicks? 'Over My Dead Body,' Says Singer

April 10th, 2009 8:52am EDT
Stevie Nicks
Stevie Nicks has fired back at reports linking Lindsay Lohan to a biopic of the Fleetwood Mac star - insisting such a film will happen "over my dead body."

Nicks, 60, recently dismissed reports Lohan would portray her in a movie about her life, insisting the Mean Girls star would be too old to play her by the time she approved any such film.

It has since been suggested the 22-year-old plans to buy the film rights to the singer's life - so she could bring the project forward. But Nicks is outraged, telling the New York Times, "Over my dead body. She needs to stop doing drugs and ge...

Fleetwood Mac frontwoman Stevie Nicks has blasted Britney Spears - insisting the pop singer has never had to work hard for her career.

Nicks, whose hedonistic lifestyle in the 1970s and 80s saw her labeled as one of rock's craziest characters, is not convinced Spears' tumultuous past qualifies her as a real music icon and claims the singer hasn't put in the hours she did as an upcoming artist.

She tells TV show Extra, "You have to pay your dues to be a real rock star. It's different in that Britney did not join a band when she was 18 and practice every day for five hours Monday th...

Overrated & Underrated Pop Duets

October 3rd, 2008 10:11am EDT
Paul McCartney/Stevie Wonder
Sometimes one just ain't enough.

That's a line, okay an amended line, from the rarest of rock treats - the duet. Everyone loves when two pop icons team up for a single. It's just like those rare occasions when two solo wrestlers join forces for a super tag-team.

Just like its brethren in the WWE the results for pop duets are often much less than the sum of their parts. Still, each duet holds a special spot, or two, in the minds of music fans.

So it's easy to say that all duets are overrated isn't it? Well, that would be the case if it weren't for the fact that so many gr...

Sheryl Crow has denied she ever had plans to join Fleetwood Mac in the recording studio or on tour, insisting the reports were just "rumors."

The band's iconic singer Stevie Nicks was said to be desperate for another woman to join them onstage, as she is the only remaining female member since Christine McVie left in the late 1990s.

But Crow insists she has no plans to join the group ...

Bret Michaels is, if nothing else, a true survivor. He has survived a life long battle as an insulin dependent diabetic, a well publicized near fatal car crash in 1994 and the countless musical trends and fads of the last two decades.

But there's little chance he'll even slow down let alone quit anytime soon. In fact, after more than 20 years in the business this award winning, multi platinum superstar's career continu...
