Iggy Azalea addressed her rumored rift with Nicki Minaj with an Instagram post yesterday (July 2).
Nicki Minaj’s acceptance speech and her dancing to Iggy Azalea’s “Fancy” at the BET Awards Sunday (June 29) were deemed as disses toward Iggy Azalea, things Iggy Azalea says have been difficult for her to avoid hearing about.
“I have to say the general explosion of pettiness online in the last few days is hard to ignore and honestly…lame,” Iggy Azalea wrote on Instagram. “If I had won the BET award, that would’ve been great but it wasn’t my year and I don’t mind – so you shouldn’t either. Generally speaking, I’m unbothered by anything that ‘happened’ at the BET Awards and just feel worn out by everyone trying to make me have wars with people all the time. Anyone who wishes me well is welcome in my life, and those who don’t can’t get any more of my time. I hate to see everyone exhausting themselves on my behalf over things that I’m still not 100 percent sure even exist and don’t matter. Just let it go.”
“This is my mind state about everything & the only time I’m ever going to refer to this again so go nuts guys, Enjoy it,” Iggy Azalea also writes on Instagram. “Ps. If you squint exxxtra hard you can see tiny elves having illuminati meetings between the lines in my notes app too.”
Yesterday, Nicki Minaj said on Twitter that others are taking her speech, which included her saying, “What I want the world to know about Nicki Minaj is when you hear Nicki Minaj spit, Nicki Minaj wrote it,” as a slight toward Azalea, who has been rumored to use a ghostwriter.
“The media puts words in my mouth all the time and this is no different. I will always take a stance on women writing b/c I believe in us!” Nicki Minaj wrote on Twitter.
