Iggy Azalea: Tour Canceled Due to Low Ticket Sales?

What a difference a year makes.

Last summer, you couldn't set foot in public without hearing about how "fancy" Iggy Azalea is. In 2015, however, the Aussie femcee is about as popular as Crocodile Dundee and other short-lived trends from Down Under.

Talk of Iggy's tour being canceled due to lack of interest began to circulate back in March, and this week, the news was confirmed:

Iggy-Ig's troubled Great Escape Tour has officially been put out of its misery, and full refunds will be issued to the (shockingly few) fans who purchased tickets.

It's Iggy Azalea!

It's the latest in a long line of setbacks for the divisive rapper, who's endured a year full of feuds, rapidly declining popularity, and being publicly referred to as "Satan in the form of mayonnaise."

Just last week, thousands signed a petition to revoke Iggy's Billboard Music Award as a result of their belief that the 24-year-old Sydney native is undeserving of such an honor.

Iggy enjoyed a modest popularity boost last week thanks to her Britney Spears collaboration "Pretty Girls," but it looks like the renewed fan interest came too late to save the tour that was scheduled to kick off September 18 in San Diego.

Azalea apologized to fans on social media, tweeting, "I'm so sad and sorry to let my fans down... we'll be back out on the road when the next album is done."

No official reason was given for the cancelation, but as industry insiders have been reporting disappointing sales for months, it's widely believed that a simple lack of interest doomed the 21-city jaunt from the start.
