'I Would Have Strangled Nicki Minaj' Over American Idol Feud, Says Stevie Nicks

9 October 2012

Stevie Nicks has waded in on the American Idol drama between Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey, making it clear that she sides with the big-voiced singer over the divisive rapper.

The Fleetwood Mac star even went as far to say that, if she were Carey, she would have "strangled [Minaj] to death".

She told The Daily: "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."

Blimey! Remind us never to get on Stevie's bad side.

Filming has allegedly continued without incident after a video emerged showing a profanity-filled showdown between the two new female judges.

Minaj was seen ranting at Carey while she remained relatively composed.

The new season of Idol kicks off January. It's not clear how much of their bickering will be shown.
