Nicks, a cocaine addict in the 80s, has spent a fair bit of time in rehab and she feels that Lohan - who has been arrested several times for erratic behaviour - needs to get things under control, reported Sun Online.
"Do I feel like the godmother to Britney Spears, Lindsay Lohan, etc? Yes. But like Amy Winehouse, they're not listening. Lindsay, listen to me, you are still capable of being a great actress, but only if you really want to do it and spend a year in a hospital.
"I do think they should have learnt from my generation of rock stars, but nobody ever does. I should have learnt myself from Jimi Hendrix and Janis Joplin, but I didn't. I don't think anyone can tell a drug addict to stop," she said.
