Leighton Meester Dares To Cover Fleetwood Mac’s “Dreams” And It’s Actually Really Good

I am always weary when anyone covers a Stevie Nicks song -- especially when it's a celebrity who is not known for being a singer. Naturally, I was ready to hate Leighton Meester and Dana Williams' version of Fleetwood Mac's "Dreams," but remarkably, I didn't. Williams, whose EP The Lonely One is now available on

How Dare Gwyneth Paltrow Do Stevie Nicks!

Did Gwyneth Paltrow just go there? I can't believe my ears. This is her version of Fleetwood Mac's "Landslide" that will appear on her upcoming "Glee" episode.
