Iggy Azalea hits Lorde in new Billboard interview, then goes to vacation in Mexico with boyfriend Los Angeles Lakers star Nick Young.
Iggy Azalea who turned 24 on Saturday is featured on the cover of the latest issue of Billboard magazine.
Azalea adopts a very humble tone in the accompanying interview, where she spoke about wanting a long career instead of being a one-hit wonder. The “Problem” hit woman told the mag the following on being the first artist since The Beatles to sit at number 1 and 2 on the Hot 100 chart simultaneously with her first hits.
“It doesn’t mean anything. I’d rather be The Rolling Stones.”
In a surprising move, she also dissed pop music sensation Lorde for covering Nirvana during the group April’s induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. When asked about the inclusion of the “Royals” artist in the ceremony, she said:
“Nothing against her, but I think when you’re doing a tribute to someone that’s dead, generally it should be the person’s peer. Lorde is not Kurt Cobain’s peer. No matter if she killed the performance or not, I just don’t think it’s appropriate.”
The New Zealand teen star probably did not see this one coming since she was defending Iggy online when her album The New Classic was getting blasted by critics.
Sensing that she may have done the wrong move with her comment, Iggy took to Twitter few hours ago to clear things out. She tweeted:
Lol I have a feud with lorde now? I Don't think so she's my southern hemispheric soul sister. Keep reaching world.
