Stevie Nicks is a rich, famous, beautiful rock star, but that doesn't mean it's easy for her to get a date. The Fleetwood Mac singer tells New York magazine that opportunities to meet a significant other can get complicated for someone as recognizable as herself.
"Like I'm gonna go to a bar!" she laughs. "And hang out? I mean, where am I gonna meet somebody?"
The 65-year-old artist also reveals that she often commiserates with her friend and fellow rock star Sheryl Crow about their mutual difficulty in finding a guy. Nicks says they actually joke around about the kinds of videos they'd record for a matchmaking service if they decided to go to those lengths. Describing one, Stevie says, "Hi! My name is Stevie Nicks, and I'm looking for somebody that is no more than five years older than me. Please no health problems, no diabetes, no heart disease, no gout, please, no bipolar; if you're on an antidepressant, not good."
She adds that she likes a man who's tall, while noting she doesn't generally go out with younger guys. "I guess I could go as young as 58," she says. "And as old as 68. Not 70. Just 68."
Looking back on her younger days, Stevie declares, "It was a lot easier. Because we were crazy...We moved fast and furiously in those days, and I had lots of boyfriends and lots of amazing relationships and lots and lots of fun." And now? Nicks says, "If that special man walked into my life, I'm the first one to say I would probably pack my bags and go with him. But it's a very elusive thing."
That's not to say that Stevie regrets her single life. "Most women would not be happy being me," she tells the magazine. "People say, 'But you're alone.' But I don't feel alone. I feel very un-alone. I feel very sparkly and excited about everything...Because I'll never be alone. I'll always be surrounded by people."
Adds Nicks, "I'm like the crystal ball and these are all the rings of Saturn around me."
