Stevie Nicks has issued a statement expressing regret for a comments she made to the publication The Daily regarding the alleged feud between American Idol judges Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj.
Stevie told The Daily that if she had been in Mariah's position, "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."
Now, in a statement provided to ABC News Radio, Stevie says, "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."
She adds, "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."
