She was flattered by his apparent advances…
Speaking to Mojo, Fleetwood Mac's Stevie Nicks claims that Prince wanted to have a romance with her. Below are some highlights.
Nicks on Prince asking her to work on "Purple Rain" because he wanted her: "I've still got it [the demo cassette] - with the whole instrumental track and a little bit of Prince singing, 'Can't get over that feeling', or something. I told him, 'Prince, I've listened to this a hundred times but I wouldn't know where to start. It's a movie, it's epic…The olive branch of him giving me that cassette was huge, but I think he would have liked a romance with me, too."
Nicks on being "flattered" by Prince's advances and a time when he drover her back to his home after a concert: "We get into his purple Camaro and bomb out onto the freeway at 100mph. I'm terrified, but kind of excited, too…I get on the plane and the rest of the band are like [drum fingers, rolls eyes]. I'm like, 'What? Nothing happened.'"
