"No One Is Throwing Shade": Iggy Azalea Denies Rumours Of Beef With Britney Spears
1 July 2015, 09:30
Iggy called out the fact they didn’t do enough promo for ‘Pretty Girls’… which didn't go down well with Ms Spears’ fans, but Ms Azalea says they're still friends.
What’s happening between Iggy Azalea and Britney Spears then?! Rumours of a feud abounded after Iggy spoke out about the lack of promo for their joint single ‘Pretty Girls’, but the female rapper has denied there's any bad blood and says they are good friends.
Iggy made the comments in a Twitter Q&A with fans as she explained why she thought ‘Pretty Girls’ hadn’t been as successful as expected:
@rhuancesarr its difficult to send a song up the charts without additional promo and tv performances etc. unfortunately im just featured...— IGGY AZALEA (@IGGYAZALEA) June 28, 2015
@rhuancesarr i would have enjoyed performing it alot, i think it got off to a powerful start. but you need content to compete in 2015.— IGGY AZALEA (@IGGYAZALEA) June 28, 2015
This didn’t go down too well with Britney’s fans who accused Iggy of blaming it on Miss Spears – but Iggy stuck up for herself, saying she was just giving an opinion.
Iggy tweeted one fan, "My comment is factual, it applies to any song. I dont have to suck the womans a*****e 24/7 to be her friend, do i? bye girls." #FIESTY.
Thankfully, it looks like the creative differences haven’t affected the girls friendships as Iggy says she values it when people give her an honest opinion rather than trying to butter her up with what they think she wants to hear.
Genuine friends have genuine opinions. Its possible & healthy to have a differing thought without it being bitchy or shade.— IGGY AZALEA (@IGGYAZALEA) June 29, 2015
Im suspect on anyone who agrees with me ALL of the time; because i know i dont get it right 100% of the time.— IGGY AZALEA (@IGGYAZALEA) June 29, 2015
@fearless1432 i honestly do because it shazamed etc well and had good indicators. At the end of the day im happy if shes happy, and she is.— IGGY AZALEA (@IGGYAZALEA) June 29, 2015
@itsGsusBitch im not attacking anyone. all i said was: i wish we had promoted more but thats out of my control. shes a good friend.— IGGY AZALEA (@IGGYAZALEA) June 29, 2015
@britspears23 im sure you would have enjoyed some extra performances etc. of the song. am i the bad guy for wishing we had done more?— IGGY AZALEA (@IGGYAZALEA) June 29, 2015
Britney was rumoured to have sniped back by tweeting about her upcoming shows while Iggy has recently cancelled her tour:
Can’t wait to get back to Vegas. So thankful I have shows for the rest of the year to look forward to... #YouWantAPieceOfMe— Britney Spears (@britneyspears) June 29, 2015
Iggy, however, denied that there is any bad blood between the pair following the comments:
Iam honestly not surprised but still really saddened that the media is trying to create a "beef" between @britneyspears and myself.— IGGY AZALEA (@IGGYAZALEA) June 30, 2015
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?— IGGY AZALEA (@IGGYAZALEA) June 30, 2015
i feel like the media wants women in music to get out and mud wrestle each other. As a woman i take great offense.— IGGY AZALEA (@IGGYAZALEA) June 30, 2015
Women in the media should be able to have a grown up and subjective opinion without it being anything more than that. its disappointing.— IGGY AZALEA (@IGGYAZALEA) June 30, 2015
No one is throwing "shade" or "shots" on either side of the table. The girl is my friend and i support her 100%.— IGGY AZALEA (@IGGYAZALEA) June 30, 2015
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.— IGGY AZALEA (@IGGYAZALEA) June 30, 2015
Whether they’re feuding or not, one thing is for certain – ‘Pretty Girl’ is the anthem that will have dancefloors full of people singing along all summer. We loved it!
