Stevie Nicks Accepts Offer After Barbie Movie’s Success

Following her performance at Madison Square Garden, Stevie Nicks announced a collaboration with Mattel to her audience last night. She revealed that the company, making more than $1 billion with the ‘Barbie’ movie, has been working on a doll in her likeness for the last three months.

Then, talking about the doll dressed in her ‘Rumours’ outfit, she said:

“I was very overwhelmed. Will she be like me? Will she have my spirit? Will she have my heart? When I look at her, I see my 27-year-old self. I am her, and she is me.”

With that, the Fleetwood Mac vocalist gifted the Barbie to an audience member named Sara and sang a part of her song of the same name. After the night ended, USA Today published an interview where Nicks talked about the doll’s creation online.

In that chat, the singer mentioned sending her original ‘Rumours’ outfit to Mattel to make sure the doll’s clothes matched the inspiration from that time period. She also commented on the new Barbie’s design details by saying:

“When Mattel first sent her to me, I told them her eyebrows are a little too arched and my eye makeup, if you go back to the ’70s, it was very Twiggy with lots of eyelashes and that doe-eyed look. So I said you need to raise that dark eyeshadow above the fold in her eye, and that will fix it. And I said we need to see a little bit of teeth.”

Sharing her reaction to the final result, she added:

“And then when I got her on June 22, I opened her up and I went, ‘She’s just perfect.’ This little Barbie is so precious, and they helped her have my soul. If nobody else in the world got her but me, I’d almost be OK with that.”
