Didn’t Iggy Azalea quit social media? What happened to that?
Either way, the rapper is back on Twitter, and she’s already incited a minor riot -- or maybe it’s all just a miscommunicaton -- with Britney Spears fans. After one of her fans tweeted that “Pretty Girls,” the duo’s collaboration, may have “flopped a little bit,” Iggy responded:
"It's difficult to send a song up the charts without additional promo and TV performances etc. Unfortunately, I'm just featured," she tweeted. "I would have enjoyed performing it a lot, I think it got off to a powerful start. But you need content to compete in 2015."
For the record, the song peaked at No. 29 on the Billboard Hot 100.
When people started claiming she was shading Britney, Iggy clapped back:
"My comment is factual, it applies to any song," she tweeted. "I dont have to suck the womans asshole 24/7 to be her friend, do I? Bye girls."
Well, that's a disgusting phrase to choose, but speak your peace, girl. Iggy Iggs went on to clarify that she never blamed Brit for the song’s underperformance, just that she wished they had had a chance to perform it more than just the one time at the Billboard Music Awards.
In fact, Iggy doesn’t think it was a flop at all and “really loves the song”:
(As for the rumors that Britney couldn’t perform the song live outside of that BMAs gig, because of her residency contract with Planet Hollywood in Vegas, Iggy claims that’s only “for full live shows.”)
In the end, Iggy tweeted, “Genuine friends have genuine opinions. Its possible & healthy to have a differing thought without it being bitchy or shade. Im [sic] suspect on anyone who agrees with me ALL of the time; because i know i dont get it right 100% of the time.”
In happier news, Iggy is engagement to basketball player Nick Young:
