“I sing and dance all during my getting-ready for the show. I drive people absolutely crazy because I’m always playing music. I can’t just walk on that stage cold.“ – Stevie Nicks, Rock and Roll ballerina ✨

“I don’t put the boots on until right before I walk up to the stage. But when my little foot goes into that boot, it is like Cinderella. All of a sudden I become me. I become six inches taller. I walk like an African queen. Halloween is my favorite day, but I never have to wonder: What am I gonna be for Halloween this year? A witch, of course. Wearing my Stevie Nicks clothes.” 

Stevie Nicks, Rolling Stone – February 28, 2019.

People say to me there’s never a look on your face like there is the look that is on your face when you’re on that stage, ‘cause that’s where I belong and I’m not near as good at home or at a party on an airplane or anywhere else.

❝I’ve always liked long, flowing clothes,…I used to rummage around in my grandmother’s trunks trying to find them. I love the feeling of chiffon and lace..❞

“My mother was always totally supportive of me and whatever I wanted to do, even as a young girl, but she was also very strict with me, and she was hard on me in a lot of ways because she wanted me to be independent and that’s because she was very poor when she was young, so she really rose up above the fray to be independent at sixteen. She wanted me to not ever have to depend on anyone and she wanted me to be fearless.”
