But I'd feel a lot better if you just maybe 
didn't have your hand so close to my neck . . . 

Well this fake Nicki Minaj-Mariah Carey feud just gets better and better. Now, dinosaur diva Stevie Nicks is weighing in. (Kids, she's an amazing singer from a band called Fleetwood Mac that was big in your mom's day. Rihanna may have stolen her name from one of their songs, if that helps put it in context for you...)
I don't know about you, but the first thing I thought when I heard about this feud was, "I wonder what Stevie Nicks thinks about all of this? If, that is, she's still alive."

And it turns out that was a pretty good question, because what Stevie Nicks thinks is this: "If I had been Mariah, I would have walked over to Nicki and strangled her to death right there." She told reporters in no uncertain terms that if Minaj had verbally attacked her like she attacked Carey, "I would have killed her in front of all those people and had to go to jail for it."

Whoa! That's some seriously gangster smack talk! She's not talking girlie slaps, she's not talking finger-wagging, she's not even talking hair pulling. She's talking prison justice. She's talking stone cold "death by strangulation."

I tell you, this makes me want to listen to my old Fleetwood Mac records all over again, to see if maybe I missed something. 
Anyway, Stevie may have already received her first death threat from Nicki's crew, because she's now apologizing for her statement (boo, hiss, stick to your guns, girl!). She notes she was exhausted after a long day of interviews and that it was "very out of character" for her.
"I feel very protective toward Mariah Carey, who has gone through many difficulties in her life, and I spoke without thinking," Stevie said.

Yeah, well, whatever. But the fact is that she let the cat out of the bag and if Mariah's people were smart, they'd be making a deal with Stevie RIGHT NOW before the American Idol people hire her to fire up their ratings. Because security doesn't get much better than a crazy broad who's willing to strangle someone to death on live TV!
