Fleetwood Mac singer and solo artist Stevie Nicks graces the cover of Rolling Stone this month for the first time since 1981. Inside, she dishes on music, drugs and dating. She says she still smokes weed now and then. "When I'm writing, I will allow myself to smoke a little bit of pot," she says. "It's my one little thing that I can do. I use it as a tool, and I'm very careful, you know?" She says it didn't work out dating a younger guy, yet it she's not interested in dating older guys. Of guys her age, she tells the magazine, "They wanna 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," she adds, laughing.
