Iggy Azalea Says Her 2015 Was “Crappy”

Rapper Iggy Azalea wishes she had the power to erase 2015 from the annals of time.

The 25-year-old Australian became engaged in a host of controversial Twitter feuds with African-American hip-hop stars, like Azealia Banks, Snoop Dogg and Q-Tip, last year (15), and the conflicts haunt her to this day.

“If I could, I would Men in Black memory-erase 2015, I totally would – that would be amazing!” she tells Elle Canada of her desire to possess the same powers as the secret agents in Will Smith’s sci-fi movie.

Many members of the African-American community lashed out at Iggy, accusing her of appropriating black culture, ignoring hip-hop history and failing to speak out about significant social causes, such as the Black Lives Matter movement.

But the Fancy hitmaker insists her public Twitter feuds with rap rival Azealia have nothing to do with her political stance on cultural issues affecting black people.

“Oh, God, there are so many things,” she explains of why 2015 was such a crap year for her. “I think the Azealia Banks thing is what really started it all. We don’t like each other on a personal level, and that has gone on for many years – before the Black Lives Matter incident happened.

“So when I dismissed her, people started to think that I dismissed the whole movement, but I wasn’t trying to dismiss Black Lives Matter – I was trying to dismiss her because it’s our personal s**t. I don’t think the subject matter of her tweet was invalid; I just think it was emotionally charged and driven by something else, and the whole thing got so misconstrued. I just wish I had acknowledged the issue head-on because it made people think I don’t care about what’s going on socially and what’s happening in America, and I do care.

“Even though I still hate Azealia Banks, I wish I had said it in a way that didn’t make people think I was oblivious to the movement.”

Iggy also regrets calling out a pizza delivery driver online after he allegedly made her cell phone number public.

“And I wish I hadn’t gotten into a fight with Papa John’s!” she adds.
