Lea Michele has done well to bounce back after losing her Glee co-star and serious boyfriend, Cory Monteith, to a heroin overdose late last year. Luckily, she had support from her fellow actors and one rather unexpected source: Fleetwood Mac frontwoman Stevie Nicks!
As Lea revealed in a new interview with V Magazine, Lea revealed that Stevie never left her side and is like her own personal fairy godmother.
“There were people who were like, ‘I am not f—ing leaving your side, and that, for me, was Stevie,” adding, “She’s like a fairy. She’s given me so many gifts along the way, and when I say gifts, I mean tools and advice and support. She told me from the beginning that music is going to be [my] therapy, and at the time, I was like, ‘What the f–k are you talking about, Stevie Nicks? I don’t want to listen to music. I can’t do anything.’ But once you get out a little bit of the tunnel, when you slowly start to feel like you can be yourself a little bit, it does help. It’s so cool I have her number,” Lea explained.
We’re certainly glad Lea found some strength to pick herself up and keep going. Cory would have wanted it that way, and she’s got a lot of big things ahead, including a new solo album and some big roles!
