(RNN) - After 15 years, singer and keyboardist Christine McVie says she'd love to rejoin Fleetwood Mac.

McVie, who left in 1998 after 28 years of touring, joined the band for two dates in September.

She told The Guardian she wouldn't mind if it become a permanent reunion.

"I miss them all. If they were to ask me I would probably be very delighted ... but it hasn't happened so we'll have to wait and see," she said.

"I think I was just music'd out," she said of her retirement. "I suffered from some kind of delusion that I wanted to be an English country girl ... and it took me 15 years to realize that it's not really what I wanted at all."

Fleetwood Mac is on temporary hiatus while founding member John McVie receives treatment for cancer.

Christine McVie, his ex-wife, says doctors caught the cancer early and his prognosis is good.

Full version of Beyonce ballad surfaces online

Much to her fans' happiness, the full version of Beyonce's new ballad God Made You Beautiful - said to be written about her daughter Blue Ivy - has surfaced online.

About a month ago, Queen Bey teased fans with a snippet of the song on the trailer for the DVD release of her HBO documentary Life is But a Dream, which is now available for purchase. The ballad was given for free to those fans who pre-ordered the album. We're guessing one of those fans put it up on YouTube.

But regardless of how it got there, we're glad to hear it.

It is unclear if the single will appear on Beyonce's new album, which the singer has been working on for quite some time now. According to Fuse, Beyonce scrapped all of the songs set to go on the LP over the summer.

It looks like we'll just have to set God Made You Beautiful on repeat while we patiently wait for Bey's next move. There's one thing for certain though - the new album will be well worth the wait.

Jamie Lynn Spears drops country debut

Britney Spears may be the queen of pop, but her younger sister, Jamie Lynn, is busting into the country scene.

On Tuesday, Jamie Lynn Spears released her debut country single How Could I Want More. Watch out, Taylor Swift, because the country-tinged song about her relationship with a "good man" is elegant and well-written.

Jamie Lynn Spears is also featured on Chillin' With You, a track on Britney Spears' new album, Britney Jean, set to be released on Dec. 3.

Can't wait to hear Chillin With You? You don't have to! iTunes is currently streaming the entire Britney Jean album a week ahead of its release.

So head on over to iTunes' homepage and see what all the fuss is about.

John Prine diagnosed with cancer; undergoing surgery

Country singer-songwriter John Prine, best known for songs like Angel in Montgomery, Sam Stone and Hello in There, was recently diagnosed with an operable form of lung cancer.

"I've been diagnosed with non-small cell carcinoma of the lung," he wrote on his website. "Doctors here in Nashville have caught it early, and it is operable. They see no reason why I won't fully recover."

The upcoming surgery forced Prine to cancel shows in Wisconsin and Kentucky. However, his upcoming shows in North Carolina will go on as scheduled.

"For me, there's nothing like performing," the note on his website continued. "I look forward to seeing all my friends and fans in 2014. We have some great cities and venues lined up."

Pharrell Williams creates celebrity-filled 24-hour music video

In case you missed it last week, Pharrell Williams created the world's first 24-hour music video for his single from the Despicable Me 2 soundtrack, entitled Happy.

The song is actually quite catchy - until you hear it 360 times, which is the number of times you'd have to listen to it in order to watch the entire video.

Apparently Pharrell considered this because he made the interactive video in the form of a clock that you can flip through to hear whichever hour you want.

Sprinkled throughout the video are quite a few celebrity appearances, including:

The rest of the time there are random people dancing and singing the song in various L.A. locations; and then every hour on the hour Pharrell pops in to dance around, do his thing and generally just act happy.

And finally ...

Tommy Emmanuel has spent his career doing impressive things with the guitar. Rarely voicing a song himself, he chooses to let his instrument do the singing.

And in his recent stripped down version of Tall Fiddler, posted on YouTube, he and his lone Maton guitar do the work of two or three instruments, throwing down some impressive acoustic bluegrass and mimicking an actual fiddle ... all without breaking a sweat.

If this doesn't impress you ... we got nothin'.
