Stevie Nicks Would've Strangled Nicki Minaj for American Idol Remarks

The Fleetwood Mac star said she might have killed her.

Published October 10, 2012

American Idol season 11 mentor Stevie Nicks has a few choice words for Nicki Minaj. After getting wind of Minaj's spat with Mariah Carey, Nicks laid out how she would have handled the Pink Friday star...and it certainly wouldn't have been pretty. 


"How dare this little girl!... If I had been Mariah I would have walked over to Nicki and strangled her to death right there," said the Fleetwood Mac band member. "I would have killed her in front of all those people and had to go to jail for it."


The rock & roll maven is currently promoting her new documentary, In Your Dreams, but still follows the reality show. While she has no aspirations of being a judge, Nicks was a favorite mentor of many Idol contestants last season and is enjoying her comeback career. After a ten-year music hiatus, she released a new album in 2011, which was highly-praised. Minaj has yet to respond to Nicks' comment. is your #1 source for Black celebrity news, photos, exclusive videos and all the latest in the world of hip hop and R&B music.
