As a solo artist, she has garnered eight Grammy Award nominations and, with Fleetwood Mac, a further five.

  • Cordelia Foxx: I have no one, and my powers are gone.
  • Myrtle Snow: Your salad dressing is absolutely magic. Maybe you could bottle it. Cordelia's Conjured Coriander Condiment. Or if you'd like a little getaway maybe a job as a hostess on a cruise ship. You've got a lovely personality and you're always well groomed.



  • Misty Day: Who are you?
  • Stevie Nicks: You must be Misty. I'm Stevie Nicks. (Misty faints) Is she all right?
  • Fiona Goode: You owe me five bucks. I told you she was gonna do that.


  • Nan: You stole this baby to kill it.
  • Marie Laveau: You don't know what you talking about. Now give it here.
  • Nan: Eat my shit. I'm the next Supreme. I just killed the woman next door with my powers just now, and I will kill you.
