Charli XCX has called Eminem 'disgusting' with regards to a track in which the rapper threatened Azalea with rape.

The song, called 'Vegas', featured on Eminem's recent Shady Records compilation 'SHADYXV' and included the line: "So what's it gon' be? Put that shit away, Iggy. You don't wanna blow that rape whistle on me. Scream! I love it. Before I get lost gettin' off."

Speaking to Australian magazine Famous, via Spin, Charli stepped to the defence of her 'Fancy' collaborator. "It was disgusting, and totally Eminem. He has a history of provocative lyrics, so it's hardly surprising, but still intensely shocking," said the British pop singer. "Iggy's a classy lady and she rose above it."

Azalea previously said she was bored of the "old men threatening young women as entertainment trend" and that she was "more interested in the young women getting $ tend."

Responding to Eminem's lyrics last month, she wrote on Twitter "It’s especially akward [sic] because my 14 year old brother is the biggest Eminem fan and now the artist he admired says he wants to rape me. nice!" she wrote. "Women in music have the bigger balls anyhow we endure much more harassment and critic."
