Stevie Nicks apologized to Nicki Minaj for her rude words. To The Hollywood Reporter hours after showing support for Mariah Carey in the feud of the two female judges, she said that she was so tired at the time of interview, which caused her temper to arise.
"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 stated on Tuesday, October 9. "It was very out of character for me and I deeply regret what I said," she continued.
Later, she explained why she was in Mariah's side, "I feel very protective toward Mariah Carey who has gone through many difficulties in her life and I spoke without thinking." She then apologized once again, "I think all artists should be respectful toward one another and that includes me. I am truly sorry."
Previously, the "American Idol" ex-coach threatened to choke Nicki after learning the rapper said that she wanted to shoot Mariah, "How dare this little girl!... If I had been Mariah I would have walked over to Nicki and strangled her to death right there." She went on, "I would have killed her in front of all those people and had to go to jail for it."
Nicki once shouted to Mariah on "American Idol" set, "I told them I'm not f***in' putting up with her f***ing highness over there. Figure it the f*** out. Figure it out." Then, she was overheard saying, "If I had a gun I would shoot the b****."
