Fleetwood Mac singer Stevie Nicks drew fire for her harsh words about Nicki Minaj in October, and now she might get some heat from classic literature lovers for her glowing praise of Twilight.
The 64-year-old was among the attendees at Monday’s night star-studded premiere for The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2, where she admitted that the end of the franchise is “bittersweet… I wish it could go on forever. I think that [Stephenie Meyer] is probably… God knows how long it took her to write this. And it’s been five years!”
But the fangirl didn’t stop her gushing there. For Nicks, Twilight is right up there with two classic novels by the Brontë sisters. “It’s a huge love story,” Nicks said. “It’s like Wuthering Heights, it’s that kind of story. It’s like Jane Eyre… It’s a totally timeless kind of story that we can relate to.”
Imagine if Michael Fassbender had played Edward instead of Mr. Rochester… Now there’s a reason to get excited for a Twilight remake. What do you think, readers? Does The Twilight Saga compare to Wuthering Heights and Jane Eyre?
