In a new interview with “Variety” to promote her new single “Show Them the Way,” iconic rocker Steve Nicks says she’s considered leaving earth on a space ship in order to escape the racism of Trump’s America.
Nicks explained “racism in the last four years is so much worse than it was. I’m 72 years old. I lived through the ‘60s. I’ve seen all this. I fought for Roe vs. Wade; that was my generation’s fight.”
She continued “and I don’t want to live in a country that is so divisive. I go, like, well, if this starts over and there’s another four years of this, then I’m going — but we’re not welcome anywhere. So where can I go? And I’m thinking: Oh, space. Maybe I can talk Elon Musk into giving us a jet and letting me pick 50 people, and we’re like the arc, and someone can take us and let us live on another planet until the next four years are over.”
The rocker then claimed to be nonpartisan.
“I hope people understand that it’s nonpartisan — that it’s not for Republicans, it’s not for Democrats,” she specified.
“It’s meant to be a moment of peace for everyone, and… you know the silly thing where people say ‘Can’t everybody just get along?’ It’s like, can we just figure a way out of this horrific thing that we have walked into? That’s why I released this now.”
Nicks new single pays homage to Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, an icon for Democrats.
