Stevie Nicks has a new interview with Rolling Stone and, Christ, where do we even begin? The Fleetwood Mac songstress touches on everything from her Game Of Thrones poetry to the time she ripped off Tom Petty to her, and we quote, “shawl vault.” We’ll let her elaborate:
I have my shawl vault—they’re all in temperature-controlled storage. I have these huge red cases Fleetwood Mac bought, all the way back in 1975—my clothes are saved in these cases. All my vintage stuff is protected for all my little goddaughters and nieces. I’m trying to give my shawls away—but there’s thousands of them. If I ever write my life story, maybe that should be the name of my book: There’s Enough Shawls to Go Around.
So, if you’re looking for some shawls...
But that’s just the tip of the kaleidoscopic iceberg that is this interview. In it, she says, at the age of 70, that she sees no end in sight for her career. “As long as I take care of myself, I am still going to be doing this when I’m 80,” she says. “There’s so many things I want to do. I want to do another record. I want to make a mini-series. If the coven reforms, I want to go back to American Horror Story. I tell myself, ‘Do it now, because you’re spry, you’re in good shape, you can still do the splits, you can still dance onstage and wear a short skirt and high six-inch heels.’”
She also swoons over the myriad artists that have drawn inspiration from her work over the years, saying she sees them as her children. “He’s Mick [Fleetwood]’s and my love child,” she says of former One Directioner Harry Styles, who recently covered “The Chain.” She also calls out “Natalie Maines, LeAnn Rimes, Hillary Scott from Lady Antebellum,” saying, “I feel like I have a lot of daughters.” Though Vanessa Carlton, she says, is “like my younger, younger, younger sister.”
She also still aches for the late Prince, who played piano and guitar on her song “Stand Back.” She adds, “When I’m nervous, I’ll talk to Prince. In my solo act, when I do ‘Moonlight,’ I wear this white wolfy coat—I put this coat on and I try to transform into a Dire Wolf from Game of Thrones. And before I go on, I always say, ‘Walk with me, Prince.’”
All of this comes ahead of the latest leg of Fleetwood Mac’s ongoing Lindsey Buckingham-less tour. She’s also getting inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame in March, which is great and all, but now all we’re gonna be able to do is obsess over whatever shawl she’s wearing.
