Iggy Azalea Didn’t Want Grammy For Best Rap Album Because People Hate Her Enough
According to Daily Mail reports:
Iggy Azalea hasn’t got the best relationship with Eminem, speaking out against the legendary rapper’s lyrics about her late last year.
But she’s still relieved that he nabbed the Best Rap Album at the Grammy Awards, telling Power 106 ‘I did not want to win that award.’
The 24-year-old explained ‘people already hate me enough. I do not need to be hated any more.’
‘My speech would have been like, “f*** this. I don’t want it, take it. Get it away from me,’ Iggy exclaimed.
Her role in hip hop was put under the magnifying glass late last year after Azealia Banks claimed Iggy was ignorant about black issues.
Popular rapper J. Cole exacerbated discussions with his song Fire Squad, wherein he raps: ‘white people have snatched the sound… watch Iggy win a Grammy as I try to crack a smile.’
‘I found it to be kind of ironic,’ the Fancy hitmaker says in response.
‘It was because I’m white, therefore I’m appropriating culture, but then Eminem won it… they didn’t seem to say anything about that. I suspect it was just because they dislike me.’
These people who act like they’re disliked for no reason just kill us! It’s not as if Iggy hasn’t been walking around talking crazy and spouting ignorance for the last two years. We didn’t imagine that right?
Still at the same time, it’s a shame she’s letting haters steal her joy. Don’t ever dim your light because of other folks negativity!
