The Fleetwood Mac singer gets immortalized as a pop culture icon
Legendary rocker Stevie Nicks has been immortalized with her very own Barbie. Mattel has revealed Nicks’ very own version of their pop culture phenomenon, dressing the Barbie in Stevie’s iconic garb from the 1977 Fleetwood Mac Rumours album cover – complete with her moon necklace, knee-high black boots, and tamborine. Nicks made the announcement during her show at Madison Square Garden last night [October 1].
“I have something very exciting to share with you a few hours before the rest of the world,” Stevie told the capacity crowd in New York. “I was very overwhelmed. Would she look like me? Would she have my spirit? Would she have my heart?”

“My Stevie Barbie has been with me now for several months,” Nicks said in a statement on Monday [October 2]. When Mattel came to me asking if I would like to have a Barbie made in the “Rumours” cover style, I was very overwhelmed. Of course, I questioned, ‘Would she look like me? Would she have my spirit? Would she have my heart…’ When I look at her, I see my 27-year-old self. All the memories of walking out on a big stage in that black outfit and those gorgeous boots come rushing back, and then I see myself now in her face. What we have been through since 1975 – the battles we have fought, the lessons we have learned – together. I am her and she is me. She absolutely has my heart. Thank you Mattel for working with me to make Stevie Barbie so pretty and so soulful and so real; she means the world to me!”
Mattel says, “Soulful stage presence. Spellbinding style. With a career that’s touched generations of music lovers, Stevie Nicks is the latest legend to be celebrated as part of the Barbie Music Series, bringing her inspiring story and chart-topping career to artists and audiences of all ages.”
