Iggy Azalea Responds To Halsey Diss: ‘I Don’t Know Her’

Published: Wednesday 28th Jun 2017 by Rashad

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.”

    Iggy is right but is she really considered famous at this point though? That threw me off. I feel like she could walk down the street and one of two things will happen.
    1. No one would notice. (Though, she’s too tall to miss)
    2. No one would care.
    Or maybe I’m wrong because I don’t consider a lot of people famous. I think of fame differently… I don’t consider Tinashe famous. I don’t consider Bryson Tiller famous. I don’t consider PND famous. SZA isn’t famous either (yet).

    • TLB June 28, 2017

      I think it comes down to the definition of the word “famous,” which is “known about by many people.” Iggy, Tinashe, Bryson, PND, and SZA are all famous. There are, of course, degrees of fame, which is probably what you’re thinking about.

        Probably. I, as do a lot of tgj commenters, listen and know more about music than the average person. So I cant tell anymore. Because just because i know who someone is, it doesn’t mean they’re famous. A lot of these artists, I’ve introduced to people i know. They hadn’t even heard of them before. SO idk. I always thought, if I have to question whether or not you’re famous, you ain’t famous. But I do recognize that they are to some extent. So. That’s true. It’s a degree.

    Still never understood the backlash Iggy got. I’ve always seen in her interviews acknowledging Hip Hop legends that inspired her a lot.

      It probably has a lot to do with all of those racist comments that she made online …

    I never understood the Iggy hate either. Appropriating? Racist? But Justin Bieber is doing all that and then some, even on video saying the N word and his career is just flourishing. Group think is an epidemic nowadays.

    • Okayyyy June 28, 2017

      Ya’ll didn’t understand the backlash that a mediocre white girl who supposedly runs hip hop with a blaccent that has made racist and homophobic comments, got?

      Bieber does it too you’re right. But I don’t support that little **** either. It’s different first because Justin is a boy. He has the little tween girlies that’ll keep him no matter what. Those little white girls don’t care that he used the n word. I’ve seen other black celebs embrace Justin but in the public, black people are not financing Justin’s career. He doesn’t need any black dollars. And then he’s in pop. Justin doesn’t need black acceptance to succeed. If Iggy was going to be a successful hip hop artist, she would need the black community’s support. Not just from the public but from other rap artists. What serious rapper was going to do a record with her? TI could only do so much. And white people rely on black people to tell them what’s cool and what’s not. Unless she was going to be a popstar who raps and not a serious hip hop/rap artist, Iggy needed black people. Justin did not. He can be racist all day long, he’ll still be successful.

      She’s a female that’s why. It’s still a tough game for female artists to find their own lane in hip hop. JB had an easier recovery after that N-word bust incident.

    Badlands outsold The New Classic.
    She tried it with that 2014 ass “shade.” Sweetie your last single sold 1K first week. You never heard of her but absolutely nobody is checking for you. Worry about that and keep it all the way cute.

    • ronnoc June 28, 2017

      Are you illiterate? Iggy said “I dont know her. I’ve never met her.” Nowhere did she say she’s never heard of her. Yall stay making s*** up

      • Rosie June 29, 2017

        Are YOU illiterate? What do you think “I don’t know her” means? Stop being dense.

      • ronnoc June 29, 2017

        I don’t know you. Is that shade, or does it mean we haven’t met?

      • smhdee June 29, 2017

        “I don’t know her” means I personally don’t know that person. Sure, you’ve heard of a person’s name, but does that really mean you know them? @ronnoc, rosie’s avatar is a photo of Halsey so apparentlly she’s b*** hurt.

    For real tho … who is Halsey? … kinda popped up outta no where

  8. Sam June 29, 2017

    I kinda think that Iggy’s response was kinda patronising, I’m sure Iggy has had an opinion on someone that she has never met as you usually go on what you see and then you perception, thousands of people haven’t actually met Donald Trump and they can’t stand him based on his behaviour and in the context of the conversation or point Hasley said that she felt Iggy was appropriating culture which can be seen in plain site regardless if she acknowledges the greats before her, because there is no template stating that if you are a female rapper you have to present yourself in an exclusive w if she was good enough she could’ve let her skills shine and presented herself differently.
    And as for saying that she’s young whats that got to do with anything! There are young people in this world creating stuff, leading people and being innovative.
