Stevie Nicks: ‘What’s going on in our country now is a real American Horror Story’

Fleetwood Mac singer/songwriter, Stevie Nicks, 72, has been vocal about keeping safe during the coronavirus pandemic. The virus has taken over 164,000 lives in the US and despite how aggressive and contagious it is, many people are still not taking it seriously.

Stevie Nicks is rightfully worried, and she is making sure everyone knows it. She recently posted a plea on Facebook that everyone wear a mask and practice social distancing. She compares the pandemic to American Horror Story, stating that this situation is the real AHS. Below are some quotes from her post.

On July 29th, 2020 when I posted my journal entry about wearing masks, there were 141,430 deaths from COVID 19 in the United States.
Today, August 10th, 2020 there are 163,465 deaths from COVID 19 in the United States.

22,035 people have died in 13 days

A lot of people still aren’t taking the wearing of a simple mask seriously~ or, just trying to be aware of how close you are to others. The masks and the distancing have now become a political statement. It is not political. It is a silent killer hiding in the shadows. It is stalking you. It doesn’t care who you are…It’s just looking for a victim.

This is like the season of American Horror Story I was in. It had turned into an apocalypse above ground. A serious “shelter in place.” And unless you were a famous witch or a wealthy warlock or just a very rich person you did not get into one of the underground bunkers~ But if you did get in, you arrived in a beautifully tattered black Victorian carriage drawn by two noble, monstrous but dying ~ black horses. It was just a great story, but I felt the gravity of it even then… You did not want to leave that safe house because only death awaited you above ground. When those characters ventured out for just a moment~ They wore their hazmat suits and black gas masks~ no questions asked. I found it terrifying. It was the end of the world ~

What’s going on in our country now, is a real “American Horror Story.” Nobody is leading us. Nobody has a plan. Unless people change their attitude from – “Oh this is such a bummer to stay in and wear a mask and follow the rules, and not party” ~ We will never get ahead of this virus.

[From Facebook]

There are several countries whose lax policies have allowed the virus to spread while crashing their economies. America is one of them. What’s worse is how some sectors of the population have turned wearing a damn mask into a political statement exposing how extremely self-centered and idiotic they are.

Stevie is one of many celebrities asking followers to protect not only themselves but those they love. We also can’t meet any new people until we can get our numbers down. I love how she not only provides facts and statistics, but connects how wearing a mask and social distancing will allow concerts and other activities to come back sooner. She even talks about being more vulnerable to the virus because of her age.

I am still sheltering in place, six months later and it isn’t f-king easy. Sometimes it is downright depressing. I do it to protect myself, my mother, family and friends as well as those I may come in contact with. My mom and I still only go out for necessary shopping and occasionally to browse. We always wear a mask and keep our distance from others. I still can’t understand how this has become about “constitutional rights and freedoms” when people are dropping like flies, including those who called the pandemic a hoax. Whatever, I’m tired, just wear a damn mask.

    Love Stevie 💙

    I saw a clip on Fox News where the reporter claimed that people are generally wearing masks now but they’re afraid that Dr. Birx is going to make everyone wear goggles next? The hyperbole!

    • Valerie says:

      And you know what comes after that, right? Hijabs and burkas! smh. I hate Fox. Their newscasters couldn’t even spell hyperbole if you asked them, but they sure do employ it at every opportunity.

    Stevie is the QUEEN!!!

    In the full entry, she mentions how if she gets put on a ventilator, she will probably never sing again. And that’s terrifying to me as a Stevie devotee. WEAR A MASK TO SAVE STEVIE NICKS.

    But honestly – yeah, the US is not taking this seriously, and its frustrating because some states are doing really well (my state’s numbers have ticked up slightly, but our hospitalizations are still pretty low and we are testing like crazy) and other states don’t seem to give a F. And I know people who go to those states just because they want a vacation!

    I’ve only seen my parents twice in the past 6 months. I haven’t been to a grocery store since the pandemic started. I have kept my kids home from daycare and camps. I’m tired. I want things to get back to some semblance of normal – but that wont happen until people take this more seriously and realize it wont go away just because they’re tired.

      It’s really serious but people are not taking it seriously. I’ve been sick with other non-covid matters all coming to a head during quarantine, and ventured out after a week just for an hour to buy groceries at the closest local store. People were flagrantly not wearing masks, carrying on loud, long conversations with anyone and everyone in sight, as if being loud and drawing attention somehow daring anyone to tell them to put on a mask. Then the other customers and employees were wearing masks but either pulling them down around their chins or not covering their noses. It was horrific. And I live in an area where there’s been looting so all of the windows are boarded up, very little ventilation. I honestly felt like I was walking into a death trap and just couldn’t believe how so few are taking this seriously. I just kept spraying myself with rubbing alcohol and all around me and on my gloves, everywhere, hoping to kill whatever was in the air. Our building manager sent an email talking about being nice to people who don’t wear masks. Like, okay, yes, be nice to those who are willfully pointing a revolver at your head and daring you to die. Okay. I’m so frustrated and scared. I do not want to die from this.

    Right? Stop draggin’ my heart around.

    Amen, Stevie! Masks and social distancing will get us through until we kick out Trump and implement testing, contact tracing, therapeutics and vaccines in 2021. Frontline workers desperately need to be first in line for these. We’re still keeping ourselves in lockdown as well, with a pantry stocked with canned goods in case we see supply chains disruped again like they were in March. We already decided to cancel our in-person Thanksgiving and Christmas get-togethers this year.

  6. JennyJenny says:

    YES!!!! I adore this woman and she’s absolutely correct.

  7. Faye G says:

    I needed to hear this, been feeling restless and tempted to go out and say to heck with it all! But if a legend like Stevie says to social distance… I will keep doing that, sigh. Don’t know how I’ll get through this winter.

  8. Valerie says:

    I love Stevie. I’ve been so touched by her recent entries, and her AHS connection is perfect. She learned long ago at Betty Ford that the forces of nature don’t care who you are or how much money you have in your bank account. If you’re sick, you’re sick. Your $$ might mean that you get preferential and exceptional treatment, but it doesn’t guarantee your survival. I hope she continues to stay safe <3

    Stevie has been, and always will be, my queen. I saw Fleetwood Mac in concert two years ago pre-Covid. I took my daughter. I don’t think the kid understood why I cried when I heard “Gold Dust Woman,” but she tried to like the show for me. Stevie has been active on FB lately, and I say good for her. To think of never hearing her voice again…that makes me sad. Mask Up for Stevie!
