Stevie Nicks is a living music legend and the queen of many things. And now, thanks to her upcoming exhibition at Morrison Hotel Gallery, she can definitively call herself the OG queen of selfies. In search of the perfect cover art for her upcoming album 24 Karat Gold - Songs From the Vault, she came up with a trove of '70s-era selfies -- otherwise known as polaroids -- taken at home and on tour in hotel rooms around the world.
"Some people don't sleep at night -- I am one of those people," the singer explained. "These pictures were taken long after everyone had gone to bed -- I would begin after midnight and go until 4 or 5 in the morning. I stopped at sunrise -- like a vampire... I never really thought anyone would ever see these pictures, they went into shoeboxes, where they remained. I did everything - I was the stylist, the makeup artist, the furniture mover, the lighting director. It was my joy -- I was the model..."
24 Karat Gold will be on view at the Morrison Hotel Gallery starting October 10th. But you can preview the intimate, never-before-seen portraits, below.
