Stevie Nicks claims Botox is “an ugly thing” she will never have again.
The Fleetwood Mac singer insists she will never turn to the wrinkle-defying injection again after a bad experience. Stevie remembers how the product changed the features of her face in a dramatic way.
“I did it in 2003, ten days before Fleetwood Mac filmed Live in Boston. My eyebrows fell like this,” she recalled to the British edition of Elle magazine while pulling a face. “I would never do it again. It’s an ugly thing that changes your beautiful eyes. I looked like the sister of Satan.”
Stevie has changed her lifestyle dramatically since finding fame with the band in the 1970s. She especially avoids sitting out in the sun, which was a pastime of her late father.
“I got my dad’s beautiful skin. But it’s also tough skin. He lived in Arizona and he was out in the sun all day. I stopped lying out in the sun when I was 30. Probably because we were doing drugs all night long and I was sleeping all day,” she admits.
The 65-year-old musician relies on her beauty routine to keep her youthful looks. One product she can’t live without is a moisturiser by luxury beauty brand Crème de la Mer.
“I use Crème de la Mer at night. I can afford it. Plus, I never go to bed with make-up on and I do a little massage thing two or three times a day,” she added.
Stevie Nicks will be joined by Fleetwood Mac members Christine McVie and Mick Fleetwood for the premiere of her new documentary In Your Dreams.
Taking place at the Curzon Mayfair, London on Monday 16th September, Nicks will also be joined by Dave Stewart who collaborated with her on the documentary. The film opens just ahead of Fleetwood Mac’s 2013 World Tour which kicks off in Dublin on 20th September.The premiere will be introduced by journalist Craig MacLean who will host a Q&A with Nicks before the screening.The synopsis for In Your Dreams is:
Co-produced and co-directed by Dave Stewart, “In Your Dreams shows the up close and personal musical journey that the two artists embarked on in Nicks’ Los Angeles home as they wrote and recorded an album during what Nicks called “the greatest year of my life”. Nicks felt compelled to share the joyful experience with her fans on what she termed “the day the circus came to town”. The record was co-written by Nicks and Stewart and produced by Stewart and Glen Ballard.
A multi Grammy Award winning artist and Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee, Nicks allowed cameras inside her magical old mansion high atop the hills of LA with a wild cast of musicians and friends. The inner life of the legendary Nicks has by her design long been kept at a distance from the public. We learn in “Dreams” that her world features costume parties, elaborate dinner feasts, tap dancing, fantasy creations and revealing song writing and recording sessions all of which are captured on film. There are cameos by Edgar Allan Poe, Mick Fleetwood, Reese Witherspoon, a massive white stallion in the backyard, owls and naturally a few vampires who appear in several “home movie” style music videos.
In addition to the story of the Nicks / Stewart creative partnership, “In Your Dreams” has plenty of other cinematic payoffs including rare never before seen personal scrapbook stills from Nicks’ childhood and family life and a wealth of candid backstage and performance shots taken over the last 35 years. The documentary was produced by Dave Stewart’s production company, Weapons of Mass Entertainment.
