As we reported here, ‘Now or Never’ singer Halsey apparently thought now was a good time to let the world know she wasn’t exactly the biggest fan of Aussie rapstress Iggy Azalea.
Branding the ‘Mo Bounce’ beauty a ‘f*cking moron’ for her ‘complete disregard for Black culture,’ the quote made its rounds on the net and eventually made its way to the desk of rapstress.
Azalea, whose career has been fueled by a number of beefs and/or criticisms from detractor, opted to take a much more civil approach to her response when quizzed about it on Australian radio show Smallzy’s Surgery.
“It’s a bit weird to bring someone up in an interview that you weren’t asked about,” said Azalea.
“To me, because I’m a famous person and I know a lot of the time people have opinions and they’re not always accurate, I really try very hard not to give my personal opinions about people that I don’t know,” Azalea continued. “And I don’t know her, I’ve never met her.”
Azalea continued, stating:
“…she’s young and I hope she learns maybe to be a bit less judgmental when she’s kind of in the same shoes. I’m sure she’s getting judged all the time as well by people who don’t really know her.
So I think maybe it’d be good for her to try to be a little more empathetic to other people that are in the same situation.”
