"Botox is becoming the new face of beauty and it's unfortunate because it makes everybody look like Satan's children." Any day with a new Stevie Nicks interview is a good day!
For those of us who love us some Stevie, a new interview is cause for rejoicing, since the poet-goddess tends to be frank, bizarre, occasionally trippy and generally awesome. Just now, she's touring with Fleetwood Mac and promoting a new solo album. Here are a few highlights from WWD's interview.
I just made a tape of dance tracks. Beyonce's "Single Ladies," "Umbrella," by Rihanna, "Come to me, Peace," by Mary J. Blige, "Afraid," by Nelly Furtado, "Touch my Body" from Mariah Carey. Love that....I'd like to do something crazy with Timbaland and Justin Timberlake. I learned to sing listening to R&B groups, Phil Spector stuff.
[After Larry Flynt] she was totally sober, and she was beautiful and so smart. I thought she was going to be a famous Academy Award winning actress. Then she fell apart. But if she called me and said "I need you," I'd go to her. I love her. But you can't tell people what to do. People say "Do you want to talk to Britney Spears." I say "No." Because nobody could talk to me back when I was having problems.
I don't like watching drunk people. Especially women. My mom always said to me "Everybody forgets drunk men, but no one forgets a drunk woman."
I had Botox and I hated it. For four long months, I looked like a different person. It almost brought down the whole production of the last tour. It was so bad, I would look into the mirror and burst into tears. Botox is becoming the new face of beauty and it's unfortunate because it makes everybody look like Satan's children. Everybody has pointed eyebrows. Everybody looks related. All the Desperate Housewives look like sisters. If you're an unattractive girl who's trying to be beautiful with Botox, forget it. If you are a beautiful girl who's trying to be beautiful with Botox, you will look like you're angry all the time. You'd have to tie me down to get me to do it again.
..and did we mention that she refers to Lindsey Buckingham as "a gnarly gnome?"
