Stevie Nicks Apologizes For Saying She Would've Strangled Nicki Minaj

Stevie Nicks is apologizing for saying she would've strangled Nicki Minaj (photosNicki Minaj photos) "to death", if she were Mariah Carey (photosMariah Carey photos), after her blowup.

"How dare this little girl," Nicks said in an interview. "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 64-year-old singer said in a departure from her usual style.

But now Nicks, who happened to appear on 'Idol' last season, says she's sorry and made the comment because she "feels protective" of Mariah Carey.

"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," she tells the NY Daily News.

"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."
