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 »
I was scared to hear Lykke Li’s cover of Fleetwood Mac’s “Silver Springs” on the soon-to-be-released album Just Tell Me That You Want Me — A Tribute to Fleetwood Mac as it is my favorite song of all time. I know I like to exaggerate, but I am not exaggerating this time. It is seriously my favorite song. Hence, my expectations were ridiculously high. Honest reaction: I don’t hate it. OK … fine … I like it. It’s good. But Stevie Nicks is still my woman music goddess of life and all others will pale in comparison. You can listen Lykke Li’s version of the song here. After the jump, you can hear some other tracks on the album, which drops on August 14, from Best Coast and The New Pornographers. [Gorilla Vs Bear] Keep reading »
Last night, Christina Applegate and Maya Rudolph’s awesome show “Up All Night” welcomed special guest Stevie Nicks. We had to wait all episode for her to sing, but when she did, it was well worth it: Here she is sharing a “dream” duet with Christina’s character Reagan.
“She’s never going to [play me]. That’s never going to happen unless she cleans up her life and becomes the great actress I feel she can be. Everybody thinks I hate her, and it’s not that at all.”
—Stevie Nicks gives her two cents on Lindsay Lohan saying that she wants to play her in a Fleetwood Mac biopic. Wow, Stevie doesn’t mince words. And a few years ago, she told The New York Times, “Over my dead body. She needs to stop doing drugs and get a grip. Then maybe we’ll talk.” [Huffington Post] Keep reading »
Whoa. It is a seriously good week for new music. Euro pop-rockers Architecture in Helsinki release their newest, which includes the song "Contact High," my favorite video of 2011 thus far. Watch now, please. For you folk fans out there, Fleet Foxes have a new one, too. But for my pick of the week, I gotta go with our favorite black magic woman, Stevie Nicks, who is releasing her first solo album in 10 years. The cover of In Your Dreams says it all-it shows Stevie in a witchy black velvet dress holding the reigns of white horse. Translation: expect classic Stevie-style songs of tortured love sung with her signature raspy vocals and passion like none other.
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. I’m all for the reprisal of Kelly Canter, but playing a country music star does not give her the right to try to play Stevie Nicks. My outrage-o-meter is blinking wildly. Maybe I’m just overreacting because Stevie is my spirit animal. What do you think of Gwyneth’s version of “Landslide”? [NY Mag] Keep reading »
