“All stars have big egos, but Stevie’s was unique in my experience. In order to feel ‘vibey’ she wanted those of us around her to feel that way too. Stevie wanted praise and reassurances, especially in response to her songs. But she put considerable energy into making people around her feel important.”
Sara, you’re the poet in my heart…..
I really like this quote, from Danny Goldberg’s book Bumping Into Geniuses, because it seems to touch on one of Stevie’s key personality traits: turning everything and everyone up to 11, all the time.
