Fleetwood Mac lead singer Stevie Nicks didn't hold back when asked how she felt about the blow up between American Idol judges Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj.
The 64-year-old who served as a mentor on the show last season told the Daily Mail, “How dare this little girl!… If I had been Mariah I would have walked over to Nicki and strangled her to death right there. I would have killed her in front of all those people and had to go to jail for it.”
Stevie is referring to the fight the two woman had a few weeks ago.
Nicki went head to head with the Mariah during an audition in Charlotte, N.C., shouting out: "If you've got a f--king problem, handle it!"
Later, the hip-hop star allegedly threatened to "knock Mariah out." She went on to say during her rant, "I told them I'm not f**kin' putting up with her f**king highness over there. Figure it the f**k out. Figure it out."
To that point, Mariah Carey retorted, "Oh why, WHYYYYY do I have a three year-old sitting around me?"
Stevie is now apologizing for her comments about Nikki and released a statement to Access Hollywood.
“I want to apologize for my remarks about Nicki Minaj’s behavior toward Mariah Carey which I said during a long and exhausting day of interviews. It was very out of character for me and I deeply regret what I said. I feel very protective toward Mariah Carey who has gone through many difficulties in her life and I spoke without thinking. I think all artists should be respectful toward one another and that includes me. I am truly sorry.”
One person who isn't the least bit fazed is new judge Keith Urban.
"I love it, i gotta say. I love working with passionate people I love artists," he gushed. "Everyone just sort of expressing themselves. It's a very alive and very invigorating work environment. A lot of passion."
