Oh man. Did you know? Stevie Nicks is sticking up for Kristen Stewart’s former philandering ways months after all this business has gone down. Just in time! From Us Weekly:
Twi-hard Nicks, who has struck up a friendship with the duo over the last few years (she even wrote a Twilight-inspired tune for In Your Dreams), said she thinks people need to give Stewart — who cheated on Pattinson in July with her married Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders — a break.
“I was her age once, and exactly what happened to her happened to me two or three times, and whoever it was that I was with forgave me all two or three times,”,” the rock icon, 64, explained.
“The fact is that when you’re young and you’ve been in a relationship for a long time and something comes along that is a little bit overwhelming and magical, and you’re kind of in another situation with someone else . . . Things happen.”
Added Nicks of the criticism that’s been lobbed Stewart’s way, “I really always want to say to people, ‘People who live in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones.’ It’s not anything the rest of us haven’t done.”
If Pattinson is willing to forgive her, everyone should let them be together in peace, according to Nicks. Says the star, “If what they have is that special they can overcome it, then good for [them].”
So OK. That’s all well and good, but the whole “it’s not anything the rest of us haven’t done”? I know that Stevie survived the sixties … and the seventies … and the cocaine-crusted eighties, but assuming that everyone’s gone out and cheated on their significant other in some fashion? Well. It’s a little presumptuous, that’s all I’m saying.
