“I’m single, I don’t have children, and I’ve never been married except for three months a long time ago. And that doesn’t matter; It wasn’t a marriage of reality. I live a single woman’s life and yes, I spend a lot of time by myself. I have a few very close friends, most of them I’ve known forever, and I kind of like it. Would I be willing to have a boyfriend? It would be fun if I could find a boyfriend who understood my life and didn’t get his feelings hurt because I’m always a phone call away from having to leave in two hours for New York or a phone call away from having to do interviews all day long. It’s not very much fun to be Mr. Stevie Nicks. In the last 10 years I’ve just said I’m going to follow my muse. If I want to go somewhere I don’t have to worry about anyone being mad at me. I don’t have to make up excuses on the phone about why I’m not coming home. If it were to happen to me I’d be thrilled. But when I’m 90 years old and sitting in a gloriously beautiful beach house somewhere on this planet with five or six Chinese Crested Yorkies, surrounded by all my goddaughters who will at that point be middle-aged, I’ll be just as happy.”
– Stevie Nicks talks about being single, following her muse, and retiring to a beach house full of Yorkies in the New York Times. Oh, and how to deal with unresolved anger: let time pass and do something that makes you happy. Um, I’ll have one of what she’s having, please. [New York Times]
Despite the remaining members of Fleetwood Mac courting her to get back on the snow goose, since leaving the band in the ’90s, “songbird” Christine McVie has repeatedly refused, insisting that she “go her own way.” Keep reading »
Stevie Nicks should really guest star on every TV show as herself. Last night on “American Horror Story: Coven,” the “white witch” showed up to serenade her old friend, coven Supreme, Fiona, and die-hard fanwitch, Misty, with a version of “Rhiannon.” If that weren’t enough, Stevie also showed Misty how to do her signature move, the shawl twirl, and gifted the young witch with her signature item, which no doubt is filled with all sorts of white magic. Sadly, Madison convinced Misty that “players only love you when they’re playin’” and that Stevie probably had tons of other superfans who she played private concerts for (ME! ME! PLEASE!). But Madison was playin’ her. She knocked Misty out cold and stole the shawl — nice hustle, girl! — and Stevie was left to play once again for Fiona. Best use of a TV plot involving Stevie Nicks and her music. You can relive the white witch’s version of “Has Anyone Ever Written Anything For You” after the jump. Keep reading »
I would like to speak to the person who approved this photo of Stevie Nicks and her Chinese Crested Yorkshire Terrier mix, Sulamith Wülfing, for the cover of QWeekend. It’s just seems indecent to show so much dog crotch on the cover of a newspaper. And that vagina-esque feather boa certainly isn’t helping. [Gawker]
In a recent interview with Scotland’s The Herald, my all-around life idol, Stevie Nicks, revealed many heretofore unknown tidbits about herself that, of course, made me worship her even more. Spoiler alert: She might have kind of, sort of dated Prince for a minute AND she has written a bunch of “Game of Thrones”-themed poetry, although she has yet to share it with the public. Coming soon, Knowing Nothing, Knowing Everything, a poem inspired by Jon Snow by Stevie Nicks. We can only hope. After the jump, the best of what she had to say, for you other rabid Stevie fangirls and boys out there. Keep reading »
“Most women would not be happy being me. People say, ‘But you’re alone.’ But I don’t feel alone. I feel very un-alone. I feel very sparkly and excited about everything. I know women who are going, like, ‘I don’t want to grow old alone.’ And I’m like, ‘See, that doesn’t scare me.’ Because I’ll never be alone. I’ll always be surrounded by people. I’m like the crystal ball and these are all the rings of Saturn around me. … My generation fought very hard for feminism, and we fought very hard to not be labeled as you had to have a husband or you had to be in a relationship, or you were somehow not a cool chick. And now I’m seeing that start to come around again, where people say to you, ‘Well, what do you mean you don’t have a boyfriend? You don’t want to have one? You don’t want to be married?’ And you’re like, ‘Well, no, I don’t, actually. I’m fine.’ And they find a lot of reasons why you’re not fine. But it just seems to be coming back. Being able to take care of myself is something that my mom really instilled in me. I can remember her always saying, ‘If nothing else, I will teach you to be independent.’”
– Some of Stevie Nicks‘ life choices might not be ones we’d make for ourselves. That permanent hole in her nose she got from snorting so much cocaine? No thanks! But when it comes to being happy with being single and independent and surrounding herself with friends so she doesn’t need a man, Stevie’s a veritable guru. Being able to take care of yourself and be independent is one of those life skills they don’t teach in school, but totally should. [NYmag.com] [Photo: New York magazine]
I love the idea bringing some of Stevie Nicks’ witchy, bohemian style into your wardrobe (in fact, Julie did a Stevie Nicks Style Inspiration post a while back that was spot on), but Demi Lovato’s Stevie-inspired outfit is way too literal for everyday wear. On the bright side, if you were looking for ideas for your Stevie Nicks Halloween costume, well, here you go! [Photo: Fame/Flynet]
“In Your Dreams,” the Stevie Nicks documentary of my dreams, will be premiering at the Mill Valley Film Festival on October 12. The cameras followed the Gold Dust Woman during the making of her most recent solo record, also called In Your Dreams. Obviously, I would watch Stevie Nicks talk about a piece of poop for two hours, but this really doc really does look amazing. Keep reading »
How much do I love Stevie Nicks? This is a woman who literally shot cocaine up her butt and also sings like an angel. We loved her as part of Fleetwood Mac and we loved her solo. And we especially loved it when she was on “Oprah” not too long ago. Oprah, plagued by all the debaucherous things Stevie had done in the past, couldn’t even deal with asking her anything real, so she was all, “STEVIE! How do you KEEP! Your SKIN! Looking so FRESH!” In Oprah voice, you know.
We are so stoked that Fleetwood Mac is getting the band back together, especially since we were like, five years old the last time they released an album. Plus, Stevie has to die for style, though we’d hardly recommend you copy her look line for line. Come on, do you really want to look like a consumptive rat catcher lady dressed by a flock of whitedoves?
Instead, we suggest you update your Stevie-worshiping look with one of these fine frocks. Keep reading »
