Default Stevie on CBS Sunday Morning

Nice little interview at Stevie's home this morning. She looked a little tired to me and her hair looked a bit darker in the interview. Might have just been the light. She talked about the pandemic taking away time and they briefly touched on her new single. They did say the 24K movie would be streaming soon. I saw on Ivory Keys it will be on PBS next month.

The most interesting thing was being asked about great loves and that Lindsey must be one of them. At first she said yes and then said no, he was my musical love. I so totally think she's lying. And talking about Lindsey like he was still in her life. Like she never had him fired. I wish she had been pushed to answer for his firing, but I'm sure it was off limits.

To me she came across as a bit narcisstic. Choosing her career and beautiful home and dogs over love and family. Kind of sad.

Why is she narcissistic because she chose to have a successful career and be a great singer and song writer over having a family and love? Getting married and making babies isn't the only thing that determines someone's worth or whether they are successful.

I appreciate her decision... it is her life... her choice. She came off a little self serving though by bragging that she can have whatever she wants.. when she wants and that she lives in a big house. Has all this stuff and beautiful things... Seems a tad self serving since we are in the midst of a worldwide pandemic and people are losing their jobs.

Very sad, indeed. I do not recognize this woman. Ever since Lindsey's firing, I've been unable to enjoy anything about Stevie, which feels so strange because I've loved her and this band my whole life. I don't think she understands how she is coming across right now, and as many here have said, there is no one around, (her mom, dad, TP) to explain it to her. Also, I don't believe for a minute that she's happy with NO ONE because she's in a big house and can buy anything she wants. The lady doth protest too much, methinks. Sad Mabel Normand.

Sad indeed. The thing that jumped out to me is how she is still trying too hard to look like she did in the 70's. The hair and outfit looks like she is imagining herself like she is still 27 in 1978. Practically every interview she talks about ageism and how she is being portrayed as a older woman. She is obsessed with her looks and I think she looked bizarre in this interview. She desperately needs to update her look to sometime more current even if it is a new outfit.

All the interesting stories she could tell but we get the same ones. She has already said the Lindsey was her musical love and I don't think that she ever really loved him but was in lust with him and needed him to help her with her music and career. She mentioned she had been in love 3 times. Joe, Mick, but who is the 3rd one?


Narcissistic much??

I have to slightly disagree with all the comments so far. I think Stevie came across better in this interview than several of the print interviews she's done recently. Whether she's a pathetic human for saying she chose her career over marriage & kids is debatable. She didn't say she gave it up for the love of family and meaningful relationships. One can skip marriage and kids but still have family and meaningful relationships. I didn't find anything in this interview to be cringey in the way that saying "I had an abortion to save Fleetwood Mac" was.
Also, I liked the outfit and gloves. To me it looks like an 'age appropriate' Stevie wearing 'age appropriate' Stevie-style clothes. The gloves were better than the ones she's wore to death with the silver spangles, the outfit better than the dreaded sailor dress or shoulderless shirt she's worn to death for several years now. I even liked the darker blond hair color but agree it's time to modify the haircut and bangs.
Overall I think it was as good as we can expect from her at this stage and decent promotion for the new song & 24 Karat film.
Just my 2 cents! Ricoh

She does seem narcissistic but jeez, if its understandable for anyone to be, its her. The career shes had is truly remarkable. She keeps coming back as relevant, again and again. And now, at 72, shes doing it again with the whole Dreams/TikTok thing.

Im not saying I think she *should* be narcissistic, or that Id enjoy hanging out with her long. But I get it.

She is a bit narcissistic but she has gotten a lot attention lately. She used Lindsey. She never loved him. Everything was an act.

I totally agree. You cant survive this long and not be affected by it. The level of hero worship shes likely experienced since 1997 would probably be a mind**** for anyone. Right or wrong, good or bad, the ego feeding that does is probably irreversible by 72.

On a separate note: The pontificating about it being sad that she doesnt have a family is unfair. That is her choice, and hers only.
