Iggy Azalea Apologizes For Lorde Diss: She's an Awesome Chick!

by at .  Updated at . Comments

A southern hemisphere pop star feud seemed to be in the making last week when Iggy Azalea threw shade at Lorde while commenting on a recent performance:

Referring to the Lorde joining Nirvana to sing "All Apologies" at this year's Rock & Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony, Iggy remarked:

"I think when you're doing a tribute to someone who's dead, generally it should be that person's peer. Lorde is not Kurt Cobain's peer. Whether she killed the performance or not, I just don't think it's appropriate."

It's hard to see how that could be interpreted as anything other than an insult, but Iggy claims she was simply misunderstood:

"I consider Lorde my very talented friend," said Iggy said in a lengthy Twitter rant. "My opinion on the makings of a touching musical tribute wasn't meant as some back door way to take a dig at her or the performance that she gave."

"Sorry if it came across that way," Iggy continued. "I feel genuinely bad about it because I think Lorde is an awesome chick."

We're not sure what to think here. Iggy says some dumb things and seems intent on starting as many feuds as possible, but on the other hand, Iggy Azalea bikini pics have made the Internet a better place.

I was truly disappointed in Iggy because Lorde came to her defense just recently when she was being "dissed" all over the place. And it wasn't a light defense, Lorde went all in for Iggy and she knew it. I just couldn't make sense of her disrespect. At least she game a sub-par apology. FYI
The "Royals" singer recently took to her Tumblr page to share a message with Complex magazine, presumably in response to Complex's negative review of Iggy Azalea's new album after they recently featured the rapper on their cover with the positive headline "Iggy Azalea in Bloom." "bugs me how publications like complex will profile interesting artists in order to sell copies/get clicks and then s--t on their records?" Lorde wrote. "it happens to me all the time—pitchfork and that ilk being like 'can we interview you? after totally taking the piss out of me in a review. have a stance on an artist and stick to it. don't act like you respect them then throw them under the bus."
