Top Ten Diva-licious Actresses In Musical Biopics
Have you ever imagined who would play you in a biopic of your life? For [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Stevie Nicks[/lastfm] of [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Fleetwood Mac[/lastfm], she knows exactly who she doesn’t want playing her–[lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Lindsay Lohan[/lastfm].
