Iggy Azalea And Lorde Don’t Hate Each Other — Just The Media

'I still think Lorde is an awesome chick,' Iggy says after her Billboard cover story.

Despite what Iggy Azalea’s recent comments to Billboard may have suggested, the “Fancy” rapper and Lorde are still totally tight — and they both still really don’t like the media.

Days after Iggy called Lorde’s tribute to Nirvana “inappropriate,” she took to Twitter to scold the media for painting her comments as a slam against the “Royals” singer.

“I consider lorde my very talented friend,” she wrote on Monday (June 9). “I find it ironic 2 girls tell the media theyre full of sh– & weeks later supposedly I dislike her.”

In her cover story, Iggy told the magazine that she didn’t think the New Zealand-born singer should have been included in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame tribute — one that united her with Dave Grohl and Krist Novoselic as well as Joan Jett, Kim Gordon and St. Vincent — because “Lorde is not Kurt Cobain’s peer.”

But, as she clarified on Monday, that doesn’t mean she has something against Lorde herself.

“My opinion on the makings of a touching musical tribute wasn’t meant as some back door way to take a dig at her or the performance she gave. sorry if it came across that way, it’s not what I intended & I feel genuinely bad about it because I still think lorde is an awesome chick,” she added. “And I just don’t want to world thinking I don’t support the girls, because I do! Anyway I’m off to paint my kitchen! Lots of love.”
