Watch Harry Styles take over 'The Tonight Show'


Careful what your guests wish for, Jimmy Fallon.

During Harry Styles' appearance on The Tonight Show Wednesday, the talk show host presented his guest with a jade bottle he said was given to him by Stevie Nicks. According to the legend told by Fallon, if you make a wish and blow into the bottle it will come true.

After the Dunkirk actor hesitantly did as he was instructed, the comedian clutched his chest and fell to the ground. The Sign of the Times singer wasted no time taking Fallon's place behind the host desk and hyping the crowd up for the evening's show.

Looks like practicing on The Late Late Show made perfect.

The 150 Greatest Albums Made By Women

70. Stevie Nicks
Bella Donna
(Modern, 1981)

On September 3, 1981, Stevie Nicks graced the cover of Rolling Stone magazine, flanked only by the same pet cockatoo that accompanied her on the cover of her newly-released solo debut, Bella Donna. In the sub-header, Rolling Stone dubbed Nicks the "Reigning Queen of Rock & Roll" — a title cemented two days later when Bella Donna hit No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart. It was a seminal turning point in Nicks' career, transforming her from one of three songwriters in Fleetwood Mac into a bona fide icon. Here was the ethereal gypsy woman pulling back the shroud and emerging stronger than ever. Her voice unfurled, backed by a propulsive guitar riff on "Edge of Seventeen," one of the album's four Top 40 singles and arguably her most recognizable song. (Destiny's Child even sampled the riff in their 2001 hit, "Bootylicious," with Nicks making a cameo appearance in the music video.) With "Stop Draggin' My Heart Around" (featuring Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers) and "Leather and Lace" (featuring the Eagles' Don Henley) peaking at No. 3 and No. 6 respectively, Nicks not only proved that she could hold court with some of the biggest male names in rock, but that she was a pioneer in her own right. Throughout the years, Nicks' voice has been a gateway to a world of depth, and her words a vehicle for nostalgia. As she sings midway through Bella Donna, "the feelings remain" long after these songs end. But when it comes to Stevie Nicks, the glitter never fades. —Desiré Moses (WNRN)

And behind Spice Girls, Madonna and Destiny's Child nonetheless. Also putting Beyonce's Lemonade at 6th higher than Patti Smith and Janis Joplin feels like a joke but all's subjective.

I guess it's based on the impact they have had on women? Not really sure tbh.
