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.
