Iggy Azalea has spoken out about Britney Spears, who she collaborated with on the song ‘Pretty Girls’, amid criticism for remaining silent on the #FreeBritney movement.
In response to a tweet calling out her radio silence, the Aussie rapper said she’s trying to offer “helpful and also mindful” support to her colleague privately.
“Britney has said in her own words, she’s embarrassed to even share this with the world,” she wrote. “If she needed me to speak on her behalf, That message has been delivered to her.”
Iggy Azalea, who worked with Britney Spears in 2015, tweeted that she is “100% sure” the person she sent advice to will pass the information on to Spears.
The rapper added that she’s “done what I’m supposed to do” and that she’s “not supposed to be mindlessly telling you all whatever was happening because half of these people are just here for entertainment not to help.”
She added, “I actually care & she can use me if she needs my voice. Leave me alone PLEASE.”
Iggy Azalea went on to mention certain things she witnessed while working with Britney Spears and her team back in 2015 for ‘Pretty Girls’.
After the song’s release, Iggy tweeted about the song’s lacklustre performance, saying, “It’s difficult to send a song up the charts without additional promo and TV performances, etc.”
In 2016, Azalea also claimed that Britney Spears’ team rummaged through her house prior to the collaboration.
“They came and checked my place to make sure I wasn’t trying to stash anything weird and, like, get it to her or something, to make sure I wasn’t a bad influence,” she told Real Housewives king Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live. “And I’m not. I passed the test.”
Azalea referenced her previous comments in a Twitter thread, saying: “I said her team wouldn’t let her do promo and that they went through my house etc and y’all said I was a hater.”
When a fan encouraged her to spill all the tea, she said: “I signed a non disclosure and her father could and probably would sue me.”
Big fucking yikes, aye.
