Stevie Nicks has been forced to apologize for some comments she made regarding Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj’s feud last week.
Minaj lashed out at Carey during auditions in North Carolina, and in the video, first released by TMZ you can hear Minaj say to Carey, “I told them (producers), I’m not f—in’ putting up with her f—in’ highness over there.”
Nicks, a former mentor on ‘Idol’ told TheDaily.com that she would not have tolerated that tone from Minaj, saying;
“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 (sic).”
The comments about killing Nicki Minaj came under fire from many, forcing Nicks to issue an apology for her choice of words.
She said in writing to the New York Daily News;
“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 artist should be respectful toward one another and that includes me. I am truly sorry.”
