Iggy Azalea is a little perplexed as to why folks are still dissing her as a rapper.

Two days after Erykah Badu slammed the beauty at the Soul Train Awards, the Australia native finally took to Twitter to respond to the “On and On” singer.

During Sunday night’s awards show, hosted by Badu, the singer pretended to take a phone call from Iggy asking if she could attend; Erykah responded: “You can come because what you’re doing is definitely not rap.”

But it was that very comment that led to a series of tweets posted by the “Fancy” rapper.

“We are days from 2016, but i came online today and saw its still cool to try and discredit my 2014 accomplishments. LOL, f*cking hell,” she wrote. “Seems exhausting. Anyway – Ive been enjoying the holiday season and i hope you all have too.”

Iggy went on to talk about upcoming music, revealing that she is still sorting some things out.

“Im ready with my music but i am also trying to restructure some things to work smoother and better for me,” she tweeted. “So we are all kind of still just figuring out how things should work and id guess thats going to take a few weeks.”


Exclusive: The Bullet Scars That Will Forever Haunt Sheryl Lee Ralph’s Son, Etienne Maurice



Sheryl Lee Ralph shared a graphic photo on Instagram earlier this week of her son, Etienne Maurice, laying in a hospital bed bandaged up from bullet wounds. The purpose of the image was to be yet another voice calling to end gun violence.

On Wednesday, students across the country walked out of class to protest against gun violence, something that hit home for Ralph four years ago. “This mother wants #gunreform now! #guncontrol now,” she wrote.

It was during a night out in West Philadelphia that Ralph’s then 22-year-old child was robbed at gunpoint and shot three times; twice in the leg and one which grazed his forehead.

So as Ralph joined Wednesday’s national conversation about gun laws, HipHollywood talked exclusively with Etienne who shared exactly what went down the night a gun could have taken his life for good.

“I was shot four years ago, November 9 … I was black out drunk. The next thing I know I remember I woke up in the hospital, doctor said I had two bullet holes in my leg and a grazed bullet hole above my eyebrow.”

Maurice, who was robbed for his iPhone and his wallet, went on to tell us that this is something that he is reminded of constantly. “Having been shot is something that I carry with me every day. I still have numbness at the bottom of my leg from the nerve damage.”

And while he will always remember how he felt knowing his life almost ended, Etienne had a hard time fathoming how his famous mother felt. “We had the conversation about it last week and she said she peed on herself,” he told us.

For Maurice, he’s proud to see young children use their voices to make change. “There’s so many angles where we can talk about gun violence and how it’s effecting different communities,” he said. “Gun reform needs to take place now.”

Since that night, he hasn’t picked up a drink and has been now sober for four years. As for the suspects, a father-son duo, they are behind bars for attempted man slaughter.
