Fleetwood Mac singer gets own ‘perfect’ Barbie doll

Fleetwood Mac singer Stevie Nicks has been immortalised in plastic – with her very own Barbie doll.

Modelled on the outfit the Fleetwood Mac singer, 75, wore on the cover of the band’s 1977 album Rumours, Nicks said the doll brings back “all the memories of walking out on a big stage in that black outfit and those gorgeous boots”.

Complete with short blonde hair, full fringe and smoky eye shadow, the Barbie also carries the singer’s iconic tambourine draped in ribbons. It is an instrument she regularly played during her time in Fleetwood Mac and still uses in her ongoing solo career.

The singer said her first fear when first approached by manufacturers Mattel was that the doll would not look like her or “have her spirit”.

These concerns have now been reassured.

“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,” she wrote on X (formerly Twitter).

As part of the process, Nicks sent the original Rumours outfit, complete with the Italian-made boots, to Mattel.

“When Mattel first sent her to me, I told them her eyebrows are a little too arched and my eye makeup… I said you need to raise that dark eyeshadow above the fold in her eye and that will fix it,” she told USA Today.

“Then when I got her on June 22, I opened her up and I went, ‘she’s just perfect’.

“If nobody else in the world got her but me, I’d almost be OK with that.”

The doll is set for release on 10 November, but stocks have already sold out during pre-sale since it started on Monday, according to comments left by disappointed Nicks fans on the Mattel website.

Some eager fans even reported the doll being put up on auction website, eBay, for $100 (£82) nearly double the $55 (£45) retail price.

Nicks joins the likes of tennis star Naomi Osaka, Elvis, Elton John and most recently the star’s of the 2023 Barbie film, Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling, to have their likeness replicated in a figurine.
