Stevie Nicks Has a Lot Of Time For Beyonce Because She's "Not Skanky"

Beyoncé Knowles Carter is never going to be an artist lacking in fans, and even the artists who may have influenced the 'Grown Woman' singer are full of praise for her, namely, Stevie Nicks. The Fleetwood Mac singer was speaking with The Telegraph recently about the latest Fleetwood reunion, when she gave Bey a glowing review for her level head and the way she handles fame and presents herself to her many adoring fans.

"Beyoncé's great. She's got her alter ego [Sasha Fierce], but Beyoncé the girl, the woman, is very sweet and nice and polite," Nicks told the paper. She went on to add that the singer has remained herself since she burst on to the music scene in 1998 with Destiny's Child, and that after she met the star in 2001 on the set of the Destiny's Child music video for 'Bootylicious,' Stevie was overwhelmed by how down to Earth the singer was. She continued, "She's a good role model. She's not skanky. I'm glad we have her."

In her discussion with the paper, Nicks didn't just sing the praises of Beyoncé, as she also discussed drugs, addiction, botox and bury the hatchet with her old bandmates ahead of their reunion.

The singer left a big impression on Nicks when they met in 2001

“Botox makes everybody look like Satan’s children. You’d have to tie me down to get me to do it again," the rock legend said about the ever-popular procedure. She was equally as disparaging about casual drug use and the addiction that it often leads to, speaking candidly about her relationship with the Glee cast and how she offered herself out for advice and someone to talk to following the death of Cory Monteith.

“I said, 'Forgive me if I’m stepping into your personal space. I lost my godson to an overdose last year – he died at a fraternity party – so I do understand how shocking that is,’" she said. "When what happened to Cory happened, I just was sick for days. Honestly, just sick. It’s just so prevalent. It’s everywhere. It’s worse than when we were young.”

Fleetwood Mac will be heading out on tour with a completed, 'classic' line-up of Lindsey Buckingham, Mick Fleetwood, John McVie and Nicks, with the retired Christine McVie even stating that she'll make a cameo appearance during their London residency at the O2 Arena. Full tour details are available on their official website.
