John Mulaney rejected by Stevie Nicks
 
John Mulaney explained how Stevie Nicks, via her manager, handed him the most incredible rejection of his career during an interview with Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show Monday.
Mulaney explained that he’d wanted Nicks to sing a parody song in his new Netflix children’s special, John Mulaney & The Sack Lunch Bunch, and after being unable to track her down for a month, finally got on the phone with the musician’s manager. But the manager politely declined, noting Nicks only had a short reprieve in between tour dates. Mulaney replied that he totally understood, but then Nicks’ manager continued.
“She said, also, ‘Stevie listened to the song and she doesn’t think it’s funny,'” Mulaney recalled. And I said, Oh, OK, the first answer was good enough. And she said, Stevie’s confused, because this is not one of her songs.

Nicks’ manager mentioned the musician’s appearance on American Horror Story: Coven, where she sang one of her own songs, “Seven Wonders. ” Mulaney said he was aware, noting, again, that he’d wanted Nicks to sing a parody song, to which the manager once again replied, “But she doesn’t find it funny.

The conversation finally ended with Mulaney thanking Nicks’ manager for giving him the greatest pass of his career, adding that he wrote the part for Nicks because he wanted to hang out with her. The manager then turned the tables and offered Mulaney an opportunity to come by and hang out any time. When Fallon asked if he was going to take her up on the offer, Mulaney deadpanned, “I don’t know, she didn’t like my song!”

Remembering the singing fish, Stevie has no idea whatís funny and what is not funny. But he might have had more luck parodying one of HER songs than just asking her to sing some random song he wrote. Why would she want to do that? Most comedians want to sing your own song with you. It can be both funny and a compliment to the song. I donít blame her for declining.

He is funny as hell. He hosted SNL last year and it was one of the best in years.

I haven't been on here in ages but randomly decided to pop on and then I see this and just felt the need to say that John Mulaney is one of the funniest comedians I have seen in a long time and this is just more proof that Stevie's judgment should not be trusted lol.

I agree that he's funny, but without hearing the parody song, it's hard to say if she made the right choice or not.

He missed a chance when he said "ghost in the wind" about her, instead of, you know something about cats in the dark or ghosts through the fog, etc...

Also, it sounds like he could have been talking to Karen LOL

Then again, she has duets with Jessie Camp, Robin Zander, Dave Coz, and Ringo Starr on her discography! Iíd rather she work with Mulaney than, say, Weird Al.

I watched this and thought it was hilarious. I'm not sure though what Stevie expected, a parody of one of her songs? She and Karen weren't quite getting it I don't think.
