(Getty)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.
