Fleetwood Mac is famous for drug-addled affairs between band members. But at the Hamptons Film Festival premiere of “In Your Dreams,” a documentary about the making of her 2011 album of the same name, Stevie Nicks told Confidenti@l she has no plans to write a juicy tell-all.

“I’m never going to write that kind of book,” Nicks (above) said. “If I do anything, it will be just vignettes of the magical moments of my life.”

Go your own way, Stevie!

See how one quote can take on a life of it's own? Huge amount of on-line press with Stevie's remarks towards Nicki Minaj (some of it below).

But I have to admit, some of the headlines from today are pretty hilarious!  It's debatable whether the saying "All Press is Good Press" applies... 

Stevie has since released a statement through her publicist Liz Rosenberg retracted what she said 

“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. 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.” 
- Stevie Nicks

AMERICAN Idol execs can thank their lucky stars they didn't hire Stevie Nicks as a judge: explaining an on-air strangling to the censors would have been difficult.

Nicks, who was coach for the contestants last season, weighed into the on-air feud between Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey, telling The Daily that she would have sent Minaj to the place where the rooms are permanently on fire if she had been in Carey's shoes.

Stevie Nicks Says She Wants to Literally Murder Nicki Minaj

Following news of the weirdly boring/probably fake feud between Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey, itinerant fortune teller Stevie Nicks decided she should probably jump in. NATURALLY. And her words for Minaj were not pretty.

"I would have killed her in front of all those people and had to go to jail for it," the former Fleetwood Mac star promised.

Stevie added that normally she would have just gone with a bat-bogey hex or a jelly-legs jinx, but unfortunately she had her wand confiscated by the Wizengamot for violating the International Statute of Secrecy. So, manual strangulation it was. Then she ran out of polyjuice potion and turned back into Professor Trelawney. The end.

Stevie Nicks Calmly Discusses Murdering Nicki Minaj


If you think that Stevie Nicks is a bizarre person to weigh in on the Mariah Carey/Nicki Minaj American Idol feud, she'll see your bizarreness and raise you a murderous impulse. Pop music's most cherished witch figure seems to be the last person in the world who doesn't think Mariah and Nicki's public squabbling is a publicity stunt to court interest for the dying brand that is Idol, and that's a great thing because Nicks is saying ridiculous stuff as a result.

Pop Crush
How dare this little girl...If I had been Mariah I would have walked over to Nicki and strangled her to death right there.

If you didn't get that, here's clarification:

I would have killed her in front of all those people and had to go to jail for it.

So there you have it: If Nicki Minaj said, "Off with your head!" to Stevie Nicks, Stevie Nicks would have offed Nicki Minaj (and, depending on how tight her grip, her actual head), one-upping the nascent diva and creating a reality TV moment to top all the reality TV moment countdowns through infinity. Mariah, meanwhile, just sighed and then tattled to Barbara Walters. We're being robbed of must-see TV.

Stevie, however, says she wouldn't take such a judging gig, though, explaining, "If you stick me in the middle of a burning fire, I don't think I'd like it very much." But clearly, we'd be thinking the rooms are all on fire every time that Stevie walked in the room.

IS SHE CRAZY?! Stevie Nicks Wants To Murder Nicki Minaj? (DETAILS)

As far as the whole debacle involving Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey getting into a verbal altercation on American Idol, are you team Nicki or team Mariah? Well, it's clear who the legendary Stevie Nicks is riding with.

While most people have dismissed Nicki and Mariah's so-called beef as a publicity stunt perpetuated by the singing competition, Nicks, not-so-much.

The iconic Fleetwood Mac singer goes off on the YMCMB Barbie in a manner that would literally have you CHOKE, saying:

“How dare this little girl! … If I had been Mariah I would have walked over to Nicki and strangled her to death right there.”

If that weren't enough, she adds:

“I would have killed her in front of all those people and had to go to jail for it.”

We know Nicki Minaj is from Southside, Jamaica Queens, but we're thinking Phoenix, Arizona ain't nothing to play with either!

Stevie Nicks Hates Nicki Minaj

WOW. Here's what Stevie Nicks had to say about the Mariah Carey/Nicki Minaj feud while promoting her new documentary in the Hamptons. Fake or not, this feud is getting good.

Pun Contest! Stevie Nicks, Nicki Minaj, Mariah Carey! Go!
Vanity Fair

Fleetwood Mac frontwoman, national hero, and severely underrated Saturday Night Live muse Stevie Nicks has (finally?) weighed in on the Nicki Minaj/Mariah Carey feud that’s threatening the very sanctity of American Idol—the Olympic Games of late-empire America. For an article titled “Fleetwood Smack,” Nicks 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.” The most upsetting part of this whole thing is the criminal “Fleetwood Smack.”

There are so many better puns! You, us, America’s Next Top Pun, now!

- “Dreams”? More like nightmares!
- She’s angling to make her a black-eye magic woman!
- Go your own way. . . to the emergency room, Nicki Minaj.
- Is Stevie showing Nicki some mercy? No! It’s a Mirage.
- “Don’t stop” is what Mariah Carey is going to be cheering as she watches Stevie Nicks strangle Nicki Minaj to death.
- Nicki Minaj better hope the triage nurses believe in miracles.
- Stevie makes shoving fun.
- There are Rumours that Nicki Minaj’s face is going to scar.
- You know what’s a Mystery to Me? Why Nicki never learned to sufficiently feign respect for Mariah Carey.
- Stevie Nicks wants to introduce Nicki Minaj to her fists: Sara and Rhiannon.

Stevie Nicks Blasts Nicki Minaj A New A-Hole Over Mariah Carey Fued!

The Gothomist

Stevie Nicks Doesn’t Like How Nicki Minaj Talks To Mariah, Says She’d Have Killed Her Right There
The inquisitr

Singer, songwriter, and all-around music legend Stevie Nicks has emerged from pop culture obscurity to sound off on the American Idol feud between Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj.

Dear Nicki Minaj, Stevie Nicks Has Got Your Number

Here's the #1 reason for why Steve Nicks should've been an American Idol judge this season. Stevie Nicks was once a mentor on that shit show, so The Daily (via Gawker) asked her what she thinks about the bitch brawl between Mimi and Nicki Minaj. Mimi might be scared that Nicki is going to bust a hot pink bullet into her cowardly lion weave, but Stevie Nicks isn't scared of Nicki at all. Stevie would be making dresses out of dyed black sheets in prison if Nicki came at her like that.

"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.

You really don't mess with a crazy witch whose last "fuck" was eaten away by cocaine a long time ago.   If American Idol is still using mentors, they should get Stevie, Dionne Warwick and Aretha Franklin to do it. Then they should gather those three in a room, throw Nicki Minaj in there, lock the door and tell the children to cover their ears, because it's not going to be pretty.

It's a damn shame that Stevie Nicks never had any children, because she'd make an amazing abuelita.

Stevie Nicks on 'American Idol' Judge Nicki Minaj: 'I Would Have Strangled Her'
The Hollywood Reporter

Stevie Nicks has a message for American Idol judge Nicki Minaj: Stand back!

Iconic performer Stevie Nicks has managed to avoid making a play for reality television, perhaps because she knows she'd end up in prison. In a recent interview, Nicks insisted that if she were in Mariah Carey's candy-colored stilettos, Carey's American Idol co-star Nicki Minaj would be dead. Fighting fire with fire: Stevie does it like it's nothing.

"How dare this little girl... If I had been Mariah I would have walked over to Nicki and strangled her to death right there," Stevie is quoted as saying. Oh, and just in case you thought maybe the writer missed some context, Nicks added, "I would have killed her in front of all those people and had to go to jail for it."

Thankfully for divas like Minaj, Nicks knows well enough to stay away from semi-scripted drama. "If you stick me in the middle of a burning fire, I don't think I'd like it very much."

Nicki Minaj has yet to respond to Stevie's rash statements, but given her history of Twitter tantrums, it wouldn't be surprising if she throws a couple of expletives Stevie's way in the next couple of hours.

Stevie Nicks on Nicki Minaj: Little Girl in Need of Choking!
The Hollywood Gossip

It may be a feud concocted for ratings, but Stevie Nicks is taking the rivalry between Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj VERY seriously.

Asked about this supposed American Idol spat, the Fleetwood Mac singer made it quite clear on whose side she falls.

“How dare this little girl!" Nicks said of Minaj. "If I had been Mariah I would have walked over to Nicki and strangled her to death right there.”

Ironically, of course, Carey has alleged that Minaj actually threatened her life during a taping in Charlotte last week.

“I would have killed her in front of all those people and had to go to jail for it,” added the fiery 64-year old artist.

Damn. How does she really feel, we wonder?!?

Whose side are you on in this feud?

Stevie Nicks has some harsh words for ‘Idol’ diva Nicki Minaj
The Daily

Last season on “American Idol,” Stevie Nicks was a coach for the contestants. But she says she’s glad she’s not involved this year, now that smack-talking Nicki Minaj is there. Weighing on the rapper’s recent outburst against Carey, Nicks said, “How dare this little girl! … If I had been Mariah I would have walked over to Nicki and strangled her to death right there.”

Sitting poolside in East Hampton New York promoting her new documentary, “In Your Dreams,” the still stunning 64-year-old is on a rock and a roll. “I would have killed her in front of all those people and had to go to jail for it,” the former Fleetwood Mac star promised.

Nicks also revealed if she and Lindsey Buckingham were starting out today they would “absolutely” go on “American Idol,” “The X Factor” or “The Voice.” “That’s how you get seen these days,” she explained. But, Nicks says, “I would have had to drag [Lindsey] kicking and screaming. He probably would have given them the finger.”

And would she ever judge a show like that? Nicks insists, no way. “If you stick me in the middle of a burning fire,” she says, “I don’t think I’d like it very much.”

I'm a 26 year old gay guy and I **loathe** Nicki Minaj. I think she's very talented and beautiful, but she has an awful personality. She walked out of several interviews before her first album was even released...pompous and arrogant.

I have to agree. I loathe Nicki Minaj as well. She is a lip synching foul mouthed ghetto rat.

What happend between Nicki and Mariah - just did a YouTube search and couldn't find it.

Love it when Stevie does her occasional celebrity smackdown - she always selects her target wisely (Madonna, Lindsay Lohan, Nicki)....

I love Stevie, always have, always will, but I hate it when she makes these outrageous and over the top declarations. I mean, to say "I'd strangle her if she talked to me like that" is one thing, it sounds like a off the cuff, funny comment. But when you reiterate that you would kill or strangle someone to death, makes Stevie sound kinda crazy and kind of like Nicki.

Agree with the above post. Another cringe-worthy Stevie comment. Not cool.

Maybe she's feeling that people like the whacky crazy stevie better than the serious boring say the same shit stevie. Maybe could be publicity for the dvd, who knows?

THE SITUATION: If anyone falls, it will be Stevie in those lovely 1977 open-toed platform shoes she stole from Lindsey.

THE PROBLEM? They are seriously hurting Stevie's feet, so could we PLEASE GET A WALKER OVER HERE NOW?!!

Anonymous said...

This was funniest thing I've read about Stevie ever! I was in tears laughing at how funny she is!! Let's face it. When you've lived through the crazy fights, drugs, breakups, and wars that being in one of the greatest rock bands in the world has bestowed upon you, a little side murdering of a twenty something pop/r&b star is just so much a right of passage!!!
God I love Stevie Nicks!!!
Long may she raighn!!!

When Stevie returns the lovely platforms she stole from Lindsey and painted in nail-polish red... Let us pray the "War of the Worlds" spares Stevie's life.

Would somebody please hold Stevie up for this photo before her post-hip-replacement surgery knees collapse and send her right back into the hospital again?

Anonymous said...

Maybe displaced anger? Fans will like the documentary, but reviews are trickling in- Hollywood Reporter basically dismissed the film, and made some valid points, and so far New York critics haven't even bothered to review the documentary. That's pretty insulting, there were many media people there, I saw more than 2 dozen who wore 'press badges' and not one has written about the actual film.
I liked the documentary, but heard 3 people afterwards who'd attended most of the Hampton's films shown, saying that this film had ''no cohesive thread'' and that it was''mysteriously lucky'' that the film had been selected to be screened there. Ouch.
"I" liked the documentary- but would like to see a good review, soon! So would SN. Then she won't want to strangle anyone.

when did she have hip replacement surgery???? I think she would be the first to announce this bit of news!!! Look how fantastic my new hip is !

Does this prove once-and-for-all that Stevie is NOT the Illuminati darling we thought she was?

Or does this turn Illumimedia release into stone?

Gosh, if that's her hip replacement, then GIVE ME NEW ONE TOO!

This is the trashiest thread I've ever seen on this website. Pure nonsense full of reprinted misquoted gossip rag articles. Please don't continue down this path of trash. It's not mandatory that this blog reprint every article published. Have some class, please.

God, thank you to the last comment poster. My thoughts and feelings exactly.

I'm a 19 year old guy and I agree, this is trashy... However, GO STEVIE!!

I really HATE Nikki Minaj and everything she stands for (destroying music and creating trashy, cheap annoying noise). Go Stevie!! You just got a whole lot more awesome!

It's such a shame after seeing her on Sunday, and the beautiful documentary, it will all be erased by one comment. Why on earth would she say such a thing to the press? It will spin out of control, and Minaj is batshit crazy, so god only knows what's she going to say and do about it. What a mess.

fleetwoodmacnews.com: I agree there's no reason for you to repost every single thing that's been in print. In what way does doing so serve your purpose here? These comments are unkind, and that's a slippery slope. Would you print such comments about Chris (and her "suntan" or any of the other members?) Why not filter?
