One Direction’s Harry Styles Told This Star He Loved Her at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame
One Directions’ Harry Styles isn’t in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, however, he inducted a major star into it. During his speech, he said he “loved” this star. Here’s a look at a trailblazer who means so much to him.
One Direction’s Harry Styles was at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame during a historic moment for women
The Hall of Fame garnered a lot of criticism over the years in regards to how it treats women. Many fans feel there aren’t enough female artists in the Hall of Fame. A handful of prominent male artists have been inducted as both solo artists and as members of a group. However, it took until 2019 for one female artist to be inducted into the Hall of Fame a second time.
Stevie Nicks found success both as a member of Fleetwood Mac and as a solo artist. In 1998, Fleetwood Mac was inducted into the Hall of Fame. In 2019, Styles inducted Nicks into the Hall of Fame as a solo artist. During his speech, Styles discussed what everyone was celebrating at the induction. “With Stevie, you’re not celebrating music from long ago through the mists of time,” he opined. “She was standing on stage headlining a place doing her best work just three nights ago.”
What Harry Styles thinks of Stevie Nicks as an artist and as a person
Styles mentioned what Nicks is like as a person. “If you’re lucky enough to know her, she’s always there for you,” he said. “She knows what you need, advice, a little wisdom, a blouse, a shawl — she’s got you covered. Her songs make you ache, feel on top of the world, make you want to dance, and usually all three at the same time. She’s responsible for more running mascara — including my own — than all the bad dates in history combined. That is true Stevie.”
Afterward, Styles got personal. “Stephanie Nicks, I love you,” he added. “We all do. And that is true, Stevie. Ladies and gentlemen, It has been an honor to be here with you all tonight, please join me in welcoming to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, Stevie Nicks.”
Have other women gotten into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame twice?
During her acceptance speech, Nicks said she was happy to be the first female in the Hall of Fame twice. According to the McAlester News-Capital, other women have followed suit. For example, in 2021, Tina Turner and Carole King entered the Hall of Fame as solo artists. Previously, Turner got into the Hall of Fame as part of the singing duo Ike & Tina Turner while King got in as part of a duo with her songwriting partner, Gerry Goffin. Nicks made history with her induction — and Styles was a big part of that historic moment.
