US Weekly: Iggy Azalea first blamed Britney Spears for the failure of their track â€œPretty Girls,â€ and then proceeded to explain herself with a seriously nasty tweet. It all went down during a Twitter Q&A on Sunday, June 28.
After one fan noted that their 2015 collab â€œflopped a little bit,â€ Azalea responded: â€œ@rhuancesarr its difficult to send a song up the charts without additional promo and tv performances etc. unfortunately im just featuredâ€¦â€
Her response, of course, sent Spearsâ€™ fans into a frenzy and after the Internet picked up her shade, Azalea took it to another level. â€œ@ThePopZone my comment is factual, it applies to any song. I dont have to suck the womans asshole 24/7 to be her friend, do i? bye girls,â€ she wrote in response to the outletâ€™s story about her seemingly shading the pop star.
For the record, â€œPretty Girlsâ€ peaked at No. 29 on the Billboard Hot 100.
On Monday, Azalea explained that she didnâ€™t mean any ill will towards Brit. â€œ@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,â€ she tweeted at a fan. â€œGenuine friends have genuine opinions,â€ she added. â€œIts possible & healthy to have a differing thought without it being bitchy or shade.â€
