Stevie Nicks Has A Very Interesting Reason For Not Wanting To Date Older Men

Sorry guys, but if you're crushing on Stevie Nicks you're out of luck.

In an interview with Rolling Stone, the 66-year-old singer/songwriter opened up about her love life ... or lack thereof.

"What if I fall in love with somebody and they die?" she said, adding that guys her age "want to go out with somebody that's 25."

"That has been going on since the Bible, and I haven't even read the Bible, but I know that. So what am I gonna do, compete with that? I'm not a competitor. So I don't even wanna be in that situation ... I've narrowed it down to nobody."

Nicks may have backed off from the dating scene, but she's certainly been busy. She released a new album, “24 Karat Gold: Songs From The Vault," this past October, which is made up of unrecorded songs she wrote between 1969 and 1995. When she's not working on her music, Nicks serves as a mentor to younger women like Vanessa Carlton, Sheryl Crow, Tavi Gevinson and the Haim sisters.

“I’m looking for the great people, the legends,” she told The Huffington Post. “These, I think, are legendary women. I want to do what I can do to help them stay on track.”
