Iggy Azalea had a surprisingly mellow response to Eminem's headline-making rape lyric: she's "bored."

The Aussie tweeted on Thursday:

Iggy is responding to an alleged leaked snippet of Em's new song "Vegas," in which he spits, "Put that s**t away Iggy/ You don't wanna blow that rape whistle on me/ Scream!/ I love it/ 'Fore I get lost with the getting off."

Eminem's new album Shady XV hits shelves on Monday and in another snippet to hit the web last week, he freestyled about physically assaulting singer Lana Del Rey. "B***h I’ll punch Lana Del Rey right in the face twice, like Ray Rice in broad daylight in the plain sight of the elevator surveillance / 'Til her head is banging on the railing, then celebrate with the Ravens," he rapped on the track.

Rapping about violence against women – particularly rape – is nothing new for the Detroit native, particularly when using his Slim Shady alter ego. In his 2009 song "Stay Wide Awake," Eminem rhymed, "See whore, you’re the kind of girl that I'd assault/ And rape then figure why not try to make your p***y wider?/ F**k you with an umbrella, then open it up with that s**t inside ya." He has also referenced rape in the songs "Celebrity," "Who Knew," and rapped about a volatile hatred for his wife in the track "Kim."

Azalea is busy preparing for her performance at the American Music Awards on Sunday, where she's up for six awards. Also on Twitter, Azalea slammed TMZ's report that TV executives were concerned about her "Booty" performance with J.Lo.

"We haven't been asked to make any changes and there are no plans to expose anyone's nipples or vaginas… but.. okay TMZ if you say sooooo," she wrote. "With that being said, we aren't performing in turtleneck sweaters either."

The AMAs air Sunday, Nov. 23, on ABC, while Iggy's new album repack Reclassified will be released in the states on Nov. 24 -- the same day as Eminem's new album.
