Iggy Azalea

After stepping away from Twitter in February, Iggy Azalea has continued to receive criticism from all ends. An ESPN anchor recently said she’s killing hip-hop and our comments section blew up when she said it was ironic that Eminem can win Grammys but she can’t.

Now, the Aussie rapper has decided to take a break from Instagram.

Iggy posted a photo on IG this past week, saying she’s “taking a break from social media,” but still loves her fans, which she refers to as “Azaleans.”


In a statement, she explained why she’s taking a break from social media.

“I don’t care about being relevant,” said Iggy. “I just want to live my life and deserve for whatever I do in the privacy of my own property not to be on a blog. That’s just human decency and if it’s hard for you to understand then you have a warped sense of reality. I’m not here for yall, don’t want or need you to talk about me and would be wildly happy if being irrelevant meant being able to check the mail in the morning without seeing a photographer hiding out in a car across the street. Peace!”

Iggy is currently working on the follow up to her breakout debut, The New Classic.
