How has Stevie Nicks continued her career for so long? Remaining a romantic while others don't is one secret. As she told The Creative Independent:

It’s very sad, once you stop being a romantic, you can no longer be a poet. If you are, you’re a lousy poet and nobody’s going to want to read your poems because they’re just jaded and miserable. If you can’t write something that’s going to inspire people they’re not going to read it. They’re going to look at your work and then they’re going to say, 'This person is done. That career is over.'

She Believes In 'The Art Of Mystery'

Stevie Nicks plays it close to the shawl. She told Paris Jackson of CR13:

It’s always been my way, since I joined Fleetwood Mac in 1975. I really didn’t want people to know that much about me, except the crazy things building up to joining Fleetwood Mac that I was willing to share, but as far as my life or my boyfriends or my love affairs or my friends or any of that, I preferred to be the...forbidden queen. We all built a persona, and that was mine, and I have pretty much followed it to now. It’s still the way I run my life.
