Iggy Azalea says she almost had a ‘psychotic breakdown’ last year

Aussie rapper also releases video for new single 'Team'

Iggy Azalea has opened up about her troubles she faced during 2015, saying that she came close to a “psychotic breakdown”.

Speaking to London-based Schön! magazine, the Australian rapper said she felt like she “had to have a psychotic breakdown last year,” adding: “I felt tired and stressed out.”

“Last year, I felt like I was definitely not in control of the media’s narrative of me,” she continued. “It made me feel very out of control of my own life or my ability to have my own perception of who I was.”


“You don’t want someone else writing your narrative and making you the villain. Then I just realised that, you know what, you can’t control it and I think I accepted that and moved on to living my life.”

Azalea also explained the title of her upcoming album, “Digital Distortion’: “Anything online is a double-edged sword… You can distort your own perception of self. You’re showing the highlight reel of your life.”

Iggy Azalea released the video for her new single ‘Team’ earlier today. Watch it beneath.
