Although Iggy Azalea quit Twitter, the Aussie rapper apparently didn’t learn anything from her critics. She gave an interview to Power 106 where she talks about losing Best Rap Album at the Grammys and compares herself to Eminem simply because they are both white.
Azalea said that she wouldn’t have accepted the Grammy award because people already hate her enough and added that the entire situation is ironic because Eminem is a superstar.
“I found it to be kind of ironic. It was because I’m white, therefore I’m appropriating culture. But then Eminem won it — who’s white and won it many times — and they didn’t seem to say anything about that. I did not want to win that award. My speech would have been like, ‘F*** this! I don’t want it! Take it! Get away from me!’. I’m glad I didn’t win because people already hate me enough. I do not need to be hated any more. Are you ever going to leave me alone? I lost. You should be happy. Sh*t. Bye.”
The 24-year-old rapper also discussed her racist tweets and even claimed they were photoshopped.
“Having to deal with people photoshopping things that I say, and then other people really thinking that they’re true. Like ‘n-word this’ or ‘I hate every race’. Tweet about me hating Asian people, black people – I hate everyone, apparently. That annoyed me. Nobody wants to be called a racist … Nobody wants to feel like they’re Hitler. That was weak. That was lame.”
