Iggy Azalea went on a Twitter tirade on Tuesday night, blaming the media for creating “beef” between she and singer, Britney Spears.
On Tuesday, dozens of media outlets reported that Iggy and Britney were shading each other on social media. It all apparently started on Sunday when Azalea blamed Spears for why their song “Pretty Girls” wasn’t a hit.
“Its difficult to send a song up the charts without additional promo and tv performances etc. unfortunately im just featured,” she tweeted during in Q&A.
And in what appeared to be in response to the newly engaged star’s comments, Britney tweeted:
“Can’t wait to get back to Vegas,” Spears tweeted. “So thankful I have shows for the rest of the year to look forward to… #YouWantAPieceOfMe.” Spears presumably poking fun at Iggy canceling her tour due to low ticket sales.
Instantly, reports hit the Web of a feud, but according to Iggy, they are still friends.
“Iam honestly not surprised but still really saddened that the media is trying to create a “beef” between @britneyspears and myself,” she wrote in a series of tweets. “We remain friends and i haven’t said anything negative at all about her. Does wishing we had promoted a single more make me the bad guy?”
She continued, “I feel like the media wants women in music to get out and mud wrestle each other. As a woman i take great offense. Women in the media should be able to have a grown up and subjective opinion without it being anything more than that. its disappointing.”
Nick Young’s fiancée added, “No one is throwing “shade” or “shots” on either side of the table. The girl is my friend and i support her 100%. I feel like the press just wants to see girls be overtly sexual to one another, and have no real opinion other than ‘i love it!’ Im over it. Women in music are not the same as a teen drama. Stop making us all out to be, we are business women & artists. Not mean girls.”
