Stevie Nicks on Nicki Minaj: ‘I Would Have Strangled Her to Death’

Stevie Nicks‘ stage persona might involve a lot of frilly things like candles, dry ice and horses, but that doesn’t mean she isn’t willing to get down to some stone cold violence when provoked.

Nicks demonstrated her propensity for vengeance during a recent interview with the Daily, when she was asked to weigh in on the recent kerfuffle involving ‘American Idol‘ judges Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj, who erupted in a screaming match on the set when Minaj allegedly threatened to shoot Carey.

“How dare this little girl,” observed Nicks. “If I had been Mariah, I would have walked over to Nicki and strangled her to death right there.” And just to drive the point home further, she added, “I would have killed her in front of all those people and had to go to jail for it.”

Nicks later added that she didn’t think she was cut out for the whole singing competition judging gig, saying, “If you stick me in the middle of a burning fire, I don’t think I’d like it very much.” But if you ask us, a little of her no-nonsense ‘tude would go a long way toward cutting out the shenanigans on reality TV. Can we get Stevie to do triple duty on ‘Idol,’ ‘X Factor‘ and ‘The Voice‘?
