Iggy Azalea Addresses Rumored Nicki Minaj Rift

"If I had won the BET award," Iggy Azalea says on Instagram, "that would've been great but it wasn't my year and I don't mind - so you shouldn't either."

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.

Iggy Azalea’s Instagram post and Nicki Minaj’s tweet are as follows:

    I don't understand want the Fuck is wrong with the Hip Hop community. This culture sucks as soon as somebody has success ppl have to hate or start shit. I see this happen in no other music Genre's but fucking Hip Hop and they ppl wonder why we never get the proper respect From the masses in our culture. I also wanna know why there only has to be ONE female rapper at the top of her game as soon as another one comes out the Media and losers Online line try to pit them against each other. Who the fucks cares she was dancing to her Iggy's song HIP HOP GROW UP ALREADY Jesus!!!!

    Fancy is the most disgusting thing I have ever heard. Shame on the black girl in that video for being a part of the whitewashing of her peoples culture. The 2nd verse of that song just stuns me with blatant cakewalk racism.

      I'm a 22 year old black male and I never said those songs weren't disgusting. You're trying to pin me with a logical fallacy. At least those songs have been around since before I was born, but this devil woman is a new evil, so it merits more immediate attention.

      i know you're probably some racist old guy but how is that song so disgusting but all this mainstream hip-hop talking about selling drugs, tricking hoes and bitches and getting high not disgusting?

    If anybody was paying attention this is actually revolving around the Ransom topic. There was a little rumor going around(that was just a misheard sentence really) that Ransom was writing for her before she got put on by Weezy. There was a TMZ video about it

      That shit was squashed a while back

      that was completely taken out of context by TMZ and everyone else.... Ransom just said he made songs with Nicki, as in collaborated, not ghost wrote before YMCMB and Lil Wayne.

    I don't even understand how what Nicki says about herself has to do with another artist but it would be cool to listen to them battle.


    "What I want the world to know about Nicki Minaj is when you hear Nicki Minaj spit, Nicki Minaj wrote it, LOL like this trick has some kinda real lyrics or bars!

  • shh

    "THE MISEDUCATION OF L-HILL" was the last great "real" HIP HOP album by a female to truly great.....NIKKI & IGGY are no different than a LIL KIM OR BRITNEY or esp. MADONNA!....#L BOOGIE 1998...

      You only listen to the radio? Don't sleep on Jean Grae. "Jeanius" was a classic in its own right. Rapsody is a great addition to the industry. You should check out her tracks. Nitty Scott is gonna be blowing up soon with some fantastic songs.

      Truest comment on this site. Women aren't funny either. Don't believe me? Watch any female comedian for an hour and you will want to shoot yourself. They are only good for being in the kitchen and swallowing loads.

    This shit is so transparently contrived by the media and people who love drama.

    They both just need to get their booty eaten because that's all they want. We need to just man up and eat a woman's ass when she's upset because 9 times out of 10 that's all she wants, but she's just afraid to ask. Besides, if the ass looks great then it must be ate
