Stevie Nicks has spoken out against pop stars in the past, but she has nothing but love for Beyonce.

“Beyonce’s great," the 65-year-old Fleetwood Mac singer told The Telegraph. "She’s got her alter ego [her stage persona, Sasha Fierce], but Beyonce the girl, the woman, is very sweet and nice and polite. She’s a good role model. She’s not skanky. I’m glad we have her.”

Nicks would know, having appeared in the video for Destiny's Child's 2001 single "Bootylicious" -- a song that sampled Nicks' 1981 hit "Edge of Seventeen."

The "Rhiannon" goddess sings a different tune about Beyonce than she has certain pop stars in the past, namely Britney Spears. After Spears' "obnoxious" 2003 MTV VMA smooch with Madonna, Nicks said the singer needed to "figure a way out of this hole she has dug for herself." Nicks told Extra in 2009 that Spears is not a "real rock star" because she "did not join a band when she was 18 and practice every day for five hours Monday through Friday and then play gigs Friday, Saturday and Sunday."
