Did Prince Try To ‘Romance’ Stevie Nicks?
Did Prince try to put the moves of Stevie Nicks? According to the Fleetwood Mac singer, she believes Prince was trying to romance her after the two struck a friendship when he asked her to work on “Purple Rain” with him.
According to ContactMusic, Prince asked Stevie to write with him on the 1984 track, and though she felt the song was too big for her, they started up a friendship.
“I’ve still got it [the cassette] – with the whole instrumental track and a little bit of Prince singing, ‘Can’t get over that feeling’, or something,” she explained. “I told him, ‘Prince, I’ve listened to this a hundred times but I wouldn’t know where to start. It’s a movie, it’s epic.”
Though she ultimately turned down the gig, Stevie said that she believes Prince was looking for a little more than just a writing partner.
“The olive branch of him giving me that cassette was huge, but I think he would have liked a romance with me, too,” she added.
She goes on to explain that she was “very flattered” when Prince picked her up after a Fleetwood Mac show and drove her back to his house.
”We get into his purple Camaro and bomb out onto the freeway at 100mph. I’m terrified, but kind of excited, too,” she noted, insisting that nothing went on between them.
