Stevie Nicks Would Have Strangled Nicki Minaj if She Were Mariah Carey

It’s a good thing for Nicki Minaj that she’s not sharing the American Idol judges’ table with Fleetwood Mac’s Stevie Nicks!

You may recall Stevie’s stint as a guest mentor on Season 11. The Idols enthusiastically namechecked the legendary singer afterwards as the best of the mentors. She did her homework, spent time with the kids and gave them really good advice.

Weighing in on Nicki Minaj’s recent meltdown directed at Mariah Carey Stevie said, “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.”

The remarks were made poolside in East Hampton New York while promoting her new documentary, In Your Dreams.

While Stevie says she would audition for shows like American Idol, The Voice and X Factor if she and bandmate, Lindsey Buckingham, were starting out today, at this point she’d never be a judge. “If you stick me in the middle of a burning fire,” she says, “I don’t think I’d like it very much.”
