    Stevie is the original Goddess! Long live Stevie..she can do no wrong in my book

  • ugh

    As much as I despise Minaj, it was about time somebody brought down delusional Glitter a few notches.
    Idol was better before they brought in these low rent judges.
    Glitter is there for the older crowd and Minaj for the younger demographic, but it’s not going to work.

    I see what Stevie is saying which is what people have been saying: Mariah has been there and done that. She has a place in music history. Minaj who is just a newcomer and who is likely to fade in a few yrs has no right to disrespect her. For some reason, coming from a veteran like Nicks, it makes sense to me now.

  • terse

    I never liked Stevie Nicks’ annoying nasal whiny voice.
    No one cares about her anyway. She’s a washed up old hag.

    Kudos to you Stevie for being the bigger person. Don’t listen to the bullies on this site. They’re the last people to take advice from!

  • try again

    @Mimi: Then that would include…YOU. :D

  • turtle

  • Anil

    They is no harm in saying sorry!!

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

    Nick’s words about Minaj: “How dare this little girl! … If I had been Mariah I would have walked over to Nicki and strangled her to death right there.”

  • dooliloo

    Ah come on you meant it in the 1st place Stevie, how in the hell do you have to apologize??

  • Taylor

    Stevie was correct the first time!!!!

    Someone desperately needs to knock Nicki Minaj away from all cameras and microphones. AM SO SICK OF HER.

  • Entity

    I LOVE Miss Stevie Nicks…but we all know that Mariah started that whole thing. Nicki may be a bit off, but she’s not just going to cuss Mariah out unless she was given a reason. We’ve seen Mariah behave as if she’s delusional MANY times. Feel free to look at YouTube to see all of the evidence of that.

  • Emilie

    Stevie nicks, love her…

  • intric8

    Stevie finally makes it to JustJared, yeh hea!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I love this woman. Best voice ever.

  • claire

    No, you just gave that bitch her confidence back. Now she’s gonna make a new shitty “rap” song about how hard is to be “talented” in this world!

  • Morgan

    Does anyone else find it strange that Niki Minaj is wearing a feminized version of the German Waffen-SS hats from WWII?
