Stevie Nicks says Botox made her look like ‘Satan’s angry daughter’

TextAlex Peters

She also says you can thank abortion for Fleetwood Mac

Stevie Nicks is an icon and a legend. A musician, a poet, a suspected witch, a gold dust woman. And, for a brief period, apparently a doppelganger for a close relative of Satan.

In a new interview with the Guardian, the Fleetwood Mac frontwoman shared her thoughts about her past (and, in our opinion, to this day) as a renowned beauty and what it’s like to age as a woman in the public eye. 

“Of course I thought that I was very pretty,” says Nicks who once wrote a song called  “Prettiest Girl in the World” but it never came out. “It started with the line: ‘She was the prettiest girl in the world / But that was a long time ago.’ And that’s something that I have said to a lot of my younger friends: no matter how beautiful you are, you’re going to get older and you’re not going to look like you did when you were 25. So roll with the punches.”

Nicks says that she has tried Botox only once in the past and stopped because it destroyed her face for four months. “Let me tell you, Botox only makes you look like you’re in a satanic cult,” she says. “I would look in the mirror and try and lift my eyebrow and go: ‘Oh, there you are, Satan’s angry daughter.’ Never again. I watch a lot of news and I see all the lady newscasters looking like Satan’s angry daughters, too.”

During the interview, Nicks also shares her views on women’s rights which have been on her mind since her hero Ruth Bader Ginsburg passed away last month. “Abortion rights, that was really my generation’s fight. If President Trump wins this election and puts the judge he wants in, she (Amy Coney Barrett) will absolutely outlaw it and push women back into back-alley abortions.”

Nicks opens up about her own abortion in 1979 when she was dating the Eagles singer Don Henley and says it is because of that decision that Fleetwood Mac were able to become the success that they were. “If I had not had that abortion, I’m pretty sure there would have been no Fleetwood Mac. There’s just no way that I could have had a child then, working as hard as we worked constantly. And there were a lot of drugs,” she says. 

“I knew that the music we were going to bring to the world was going to heal so many people’s hearts and make people so happy. And I thought: you know what? That’s really important. There’s not another band in the world that has two lead women singers, two lead women writers. That was my world’s mission.”
