Iggy Azalea just can’t catch a break.

Macklemore recently released a song titled “White Privilege,” a track in which the rapper opens up about cultural appropriation, Black Lives Matter and racism.

In the song, the rapper suggests artists like Miley Cyrus, Elvis and Iggy Azalea have “exploited and stolen the music, the moment/ The magic, the passion, the fashion, you toy with/ The culture was never yours to make better.”

So when asked by a Twitter user how Iggy felt about the Macklemore “diss,” the Australia native responded:

“He shouldn’t have spent the last 3 yrs having friendly convos and taking pictures together at events etc if those were his feelings.”

But what Talib Kweli can’t understand is why Nick Young’s fiancée is taking the lyric as a diss. In a series of tweets, the rapper goes in on the “Fancy” rapper and basically denounces his support for the 25-year-old.

“The fact thinks Macklemore song was a diss to her, instead of actually listening, is proof of her privilege. F*ck Iggy Azalea,” he wrote. “True story. I actually rooted for Iggy when she first came out. But she’s disrespected hip hop culture one too many times.”

In a statement about the song, Macklemore explained, “This song is the outcome of an ongoing dialogue with musicians, activists, and teachers within our community in Seattle and beyond. Their work and engagement was essential to the creative process.”

Will also snapped some fun flicks with his son Jaden before greeting fans and speaking with reporters including HipHollywood.

He told HipHollywood that he was super excited to reunite with his Suicide Squad director David Ayer for the film, and would “work with him whenever he wants to.

“I love his madness how he creates,” gushes Smith. “How he thinks about scenes, the way he works with actors, it’s some of the best psychological work of any director I’ve ever worked with.”

In the film Smith plays an LAPD cop in a mythical world of orcs, elves and fairies … and Ayer told us, he couldn’t think of anyone better for the role.

“We had such a good time on Suicide Squad together and this role is kind of perfect for him, it’s an edgy movie, buts it’s funny. He’s got the best sense of humor of anybody I know.”

BRIGHT debuts on Netflix December 22. Peep the newest trailer below.
