Nicks penned a doodle-decorated open letter describing her social distancing routine with her goddaughters, assistant and their dogs — painting, drawing and listening to Styles’ Billboard 200 No. 1 album Fine Line for inspiration to write her own songs and poems.
“Way to go H~ it is your Rumours,” the Fleetwood Mac singer wrote, referring to her band’s landmark 1977 LP — one of the best-selling albums of all time.
Styles has claimed the rock legend as one of his idols multiple times. He personally played Fine Line for her before its December release and even brought her out for a one-night-only LA concert on his sophomore album’s release date.
Upon its No. 1 debut, Fine Line had the largest week for a pop album by a male artist in over four years.
