Singer takes to Twitter to respond to recent war of words
Badu appeared to insult the rapper while hosting the Soul Train Awards last month (November 29). During her opening monologue, Badu pretended to answer her phone and said: “Who is this? Oh Iggy Azalea, hey! No, no, no, no, you can come ‘cos what you do definitely is not rap.”
Azalea later took to Twitter to brush off the comments. She wrote: “We are days from 2016, but I came online today and saw it’s still cool to try and discredit my 2014 accomplishments. LOL, fucking hell.”
Yesterday Badu posted a video in which she delivered a tongue-in-cheek apology to Azalea “for my daughter” because the Australian rapper is “one of their favourite artists”.
Now, Azalea has taken to Twitter to accept her apology adding: “Hey Erykah. Tell the kids I’m a big fan of mom, even if we don’t agree where to file my music in their iTunes folders. I’m gonna announce a new tour soon. If they do great in class, there is officially an open invitation extended to them and friends with good report cards to come and enjoy a show anytime. I am 100 percent a woman of my word, and I appreciate the apology.”
Meanwhile, Azalea recently updated fans about her next album, stating that she’s “ready” and that it is all “finished… except for getting the features recorded.”
The rapper also said that she is “trying to restructure some things to work smoother and better for me”, which will “take a few weeks”.
