Truth rating: 10

Stevie Nicks is apologizing for saying she would have “strangled” Nicki Minaj to death if she were Mariah Carey.

As Gossip Cop previously reported, Nicks weighed in on the ongoing feud between the “American Idol” judges, saying she “would have killed [Minaj] in front of all those people and had to go to jail for it.”

Now Nicks is emphatically taking back her words, admitting she “spoke without thinking.”

“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,” the singer says in a statement.

She continues, “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. I am truly sorry,” Nicks concludes.
