NEW YORK — The rumors are true: Stevie Nicks is getting a Barbie doll made in her likeness.
The longtime Fleetwood Mac and solo singer-songwriter told fans in attendance at her concert at Madison Square Garden in New York City on Sunday night that Mattel will create an official Stevie Nicks Barbie, Rolling Stone reported.
After her performance of “Bella Donna,” Nicks, 75, revealed that the toymaker was creating a version of the iconic doll in her image.
“I have something very exciting to share with you a few hours before the rest of the world,” Nicks told the audience, adding that Mattel approached her about the doll about a year ago. “I was very overwhelmed. Will she be like me? Will she have my spirit? Will she have my heart?”
Mattel confirmed the doll on its website shortly at 12:01 a.m. EDT on Monday. The cost is $55 and customers can order up to 10 dolls in the presale. Mattel added that the doll will be shipped on or before Nov. 10. It cannot stand on its own, so the doll will be shipped with its own stand, Mattel said.
The Barbie will be dressed in the outfit Nicks wore for the cover of Fleetwood Mac’s “Rumours” album in 1977.
Nicks told the audience she had been carrying the Nicks Barbie on the road for the past three months, Rolling Stone reported.
“When I look at her I see my 27-year-old self,” Nicks said. “I am her and she is me.”
Nicks handed a fan named Sara the Barbie she carried to the stage, and then launched into a few lines of the song of the same name that she sang with Fleetwood Mac, according to Rolling Stone.
Earlier, Mattel teased information about the Barbie/Stevie Nicks doll, playing off her 1985 solo hit, “I Can’t Wait,” as a digital clock on its website ticked to double zeros.
