Last night on “The Tonight Show,” host Jimmy Fallon continued to just slay at putting his celeb guests to work. This time, Fallon and guest Stevie Nicks recreated Nicks’ 1981 hit “Stop Draggin’ My Heart Around,” with Fallon embodying the role of Stevie’s original duet partner, Tom Petty.

I was totally in my element watching last night’s Academy of Country Music Awards, basking in the hotness that is Luke Bryan and contemplating my love-hate relationship with Taylor Swift, when Stevie Nicks showed up and totally changed the game. She took the stage with Lady Antebellum for a medley of Lady A’s tune “Golden,” and— wait for it— Fleetwood Mac’s “Rhiannon.” In that moment, dreams came true. I didn’t even mind that Hillary Scott was a bit pitchy at times, because it was THAT magical. It was like watching the Power Rangers get together for the first time. Check it out for yourself and thank us later.
“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 »
