In an interview with gay glossy Out, singer-songwriter Stevie Nicks said she appreciates her gay fans but added that she views all her fans the same.

“I can’t say that I’m so glad that gay people like my music, because I have never looked at gay people as different from any other people,” the 66-year-old Nicks said. “We are all one consciousness.”

“The fact that anybody loves my music makes me feel very good, because this is what I do. I didn’t get married; I don’t have kids. I have lots of godchildren, but it is just me and my dogs. And then I have my straight friends and I have my gay friends.”

Nicks was also asked how she would handle coming out.

“The idea of carrying that secret around would have killed me,” she said. “So I wouldn’t have [been in the closet]. If I were gay, the second that I knew, I would have said, ‘OK, everybody, this is how it is, and either you still like me or I don’t care.’ I think that if you are gay, you just have to say ‘It’s great!’ And hopefully you will find a great relationship. And hopefully all the straight people will find a relationship. And hopefully all the people like me who don’t care about having a relationship will continue to not care and just have a great dog. I’m not putting relationships down – I’ve had amazing relationships. But that is how I look at life.”

Nicks' new album, 24 Karat Gold, arrives next month.
