<p>In the 90s, <a href="https://ift.tt/BhGntXz McVie</a> took a break from <a href="https://ift.tt/JZtpAEu Mac</a>, during which time she said she was “by no means a nun.” Here’s what McVie said about her hiatus from the <a href="https://ift.tt/PshSjgC rock</a> musicians collaborated in their new dynamic and why Buckingham told McVie to “just write about sex.”</p> <figure class="wp-block-image size-full"><img loading="lazy" width="1200" height="799" src="https://ift.tt/JUpbqwf" alt="Christine McVie, who compared herself to a nun, performs on stage with Fleetwood Mac." class="wp-image-3103663" srcset="https://ift.tt/JUpbqwf 1200w, https://ift.tt/KkaZLCf 150w, https://ift.tt/Uc2t5Mh 640w, https://ift.tt/KH9J2Gj 768w, https://ift.tt/DAKf7kn 1024w, https://ift.tt/sSqBJ8p 90w" sizes="(max-width: 1200px) 100vw, 1200px" /><figcaption>Christine McVie | Lester Cohen/Getty Images</figcaption></figure> <h2 id="h-christine-mcvie-said-she-was-by-no-means-a-nun-during-her-15-year-hiatus-from-fleetwood-mac"><strong>Christine McVie said she was ‘by no means a nun’ during her 15-year hiatus from Fleetwood Mac</strong></h2> <p>In 1998, Christine McVie <a href="https://ift.tt/nVFyDwo Fleetwood Mac</a> shortly after the band was inducted into the <a href="https://ift.tt/zf6tBwO & Roll Hall of Fame</a>. The keyboardist has shared in many interviews that <a href="https://ift.tt/dl4qkRB flying phobia and panic attacks</a> were the main reasons why she decided to leave the group. </p> <p>But after about 15 years (and some help from Fleetwood Mac drummer <a href="https://ift.tt/i4ESnbd Fleetwood</a> and a therapist), the “Everywhere” singer was able to overcome her fears and rejoin the band. </p> <p>After recommitting to the band, McVie worked extensively with guitarist Lindsey Buckingham on new music. The keyboardist told <a href="https://ift.tt/Fu63BIL" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener">Elle</a> that when she got stuck on a lyric, Buckingham advised her to “just write about sex.”</p> <p>When asked if her time in the country inspired any of those sexual songs, McVie joked, “You mean the nunnery?” before adding, “I was by no means a nun.” </p> <p>She was then asked if there was a lot of action in the countryside. “Well, not much action,” McVie shared. “But some.”</p> <figure class="wp-block-embed is-type-rich is-provider-twitter wp-block-embed-twitter"><div class="wp-block-embed__wrapper"> <blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-width="550" data-dnt="true"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Fleetwood Mac's Christine McVie says cocaine and champagne made her perform better: <a href="https://ift.tt/KGgBR1p> <a href="https://t.co/GQkMf5wdWT">pic.twitter.com/GQkMf5wdWT</a></p>— Consequence (@consequence) <a href="https://twitter.com/consequence/status/1535018261405908992?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">June 9, 2022</a></blockquote><script async src="https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script> </div></figure> <h2 id="h-stevie-nicks-once-called-herself-and-christine-mcvie-rock-and-roll-nuns"><strong>Stevie Nicks once called herself and Christine McVie ‘rock and roll nuns’</strong></h2> <p>Christine McVie wasn’t the first person to compare herself to a nun. Her Fleetwood Mac bandmate, Stevie Nicks, once called the only two female members of the group “rock and roll nuns.”</p> <p>McVie and Nicks were describing being on the road together. “We shared rooms, did each other’s makeup and lived on Dunkin’ Donuts,” McVie told <a href="https://ift.tt/FDBes8O" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener">The Guardian</a>. </p> <p>“We really were quite tame people back then,” Nicks insisted. “The band had two couples in it, plus Mick was married with two little girls – so we had to behave. We’d play a gig, get on an airplane right after the show and leave to the next place. And we were watched like hawks. We had security outside each of our rooms so Chris and I were almost like traveling rock’n’roll nuns.”</p> <p>“I wouldn’t say ‘nuns,’” McVie laughed. “But it was like the army. It was regimented. The rock’n’roll lifestyle did have its perks but it wasn’t all limos and parties in the early days.”</p> <figure class="wp-block-embed is-type-rich is-provider-twitter wp-block-embed-twitter"><div class="wp-block-embed__wrapper"> <blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-width="550" data-dnt="true"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">‘We made a pact that we would never accept being treated as second-class citizens in the music business.

That’s who I was,” the “Songbird” singer said. “Stevie used to call me Mother Earth because I was always pretty grounded.”</p> <p><strong>RELATED: </strong><a href="https://ift.tt/DJQPynM McVie Revealed How Mick Fleetwood Helped Her Conquer Her Fear of Flying</strong></a></p>
