On Feb. 8, the morning of the GRAMMY Awards, Iggy was busy blowing up Papa John’s
Twitter account, claiming that one of their delivery drivers had violated her privacy by giving out her personal phone number to his friends and family.
On Tuesday, the "Fancy" singer sat down with Ryan Seacrest and shared the backstory behind her Twitter rant.
After talking about how much she had loved her local Papa John’s, she explained that the trouble started when they hired a new delivery boy.
"[He] was a bit younger, he’s maybe 18," Iggy said. "And he came to my house to deliver the pizza, and he was like, ‘Whose Ferrari is that?! Oh my god!?’ I was like, ‘Well, it’s mine. Here’s your tip. Thanks for the pizza. Bye!"
According to Iggy, that was when he realized who she was, and he freaked, screaming with excitement. Iggy, who was home alone, really wanted nothing more than to just eat her food in peace.
"I just want these cheese sticks," Iggy added. "That’s all I’m here for."
The next day, she started to get missed calls from unknown numbers. Then, she started to get a ton of text messages, one of which read, "Is this Iggy Azalea? My brother delivered a pizza to you two days ago, and he gave me your number."
Responding to the slew of bizarre and unsolicited messages, Iggy called up the Papa John’s to report what had happened. Instead of firing the delivery boy, the manager supposedly "talked to his mother" and assured Iggy it wouldn’t be a problem again.
Needless to say, that wasn’t really sufficient for the harassed star, which is when she decided to bring the situation to light on Twitter.
Eventually, Papa John’s apologized, and buried the hatchet.
"Papa John’s was really cool about it, eventually, and the senior vice president called me up and was like, ‘Do you want free pizza?’" Iggy said. "I’m totally cool paying for the pizza, I just want to know that [they’re] taking this serious. Because it effects other people too, potentially not famous people, and I want to make sure that’s not happening in the neighborhood I live in."
