Despite being a big damn deal in her own right, Stevie Nicks admits in this week’s issue of People magazine that she still gets star struck. Stevie said that when she met David Beckham at her concert last year in November she was awestruck by how handsome he was. At that same concert, Stevie met Emilia Clarke whom she said she has loved since watching her portray the Mother of Dragons in Game of Thrones. It was cute! Below are a few excerpts from the interview:
In this week’s issue of PEOPLE, on newsstands now, the Fleetwood Mac singer and rock icon, 72, recalls being star-struck by former pro soccer star David Beckham while meeting him backstage at her November 2019 concert in San Francisco.
“He just oozed handsomeness. Gorgeousness, you know?” Nicks says. “I just stood there, like, ‘Is this real? Maybe it’s a dream.’ Anyway, he was super nice and really sweet.”
(For the record, Beckham was just as star-struck and posted a photo of him and Nicks to his Instagram after the show with the caption, “What a night in San Fran seeing Fleetwood Mac ❤️Stevie Nicks ❤️.”)
At the same show, Nicks also met and spent time with the Mother of Dragons herself, Emilia Clarke.
“I watched her on Game of Thrones for like 10 years, and I just loved her to death,” she says. “She was kind of like my long-lost daughter that I had found, and she followed me around after the show. She was great, and she wanted to talk, so she was with me the entire time for the meet and greet. I just thought she was the cutest thing.”
Stevie being star struck by David Beckham and Emilia Clarke has got to be the cutest damn story that has come out about her this year. To be fair, I think I’d be star struck not only by Stevie Nicks but the Mother of Dragons too.
I’ve been a fan of Stevie since the 80s but I think I have fallen in love with Stevie this past year. Stevie just seems like the coolest down to earth chick and someone I’d like to have dinner or a social distanced dance party with. I am also enjoying the resurgence of Stevie’s career during lock down and how she has been letting us into her world. I do hope to see her live in concert once we have gotten a handle on this damn pandemic. In the mean time, I think I may go watch her performance with Harry Styles and listen to her song with Miley Cyrus because I need a bit of a pick me up. 2020 has seemed like twenty years and I am exhausted with it.
