Iggy Azalea has received a lot of criticism throughout her career. In February, the MC told MTV News that she expects backlash because “success is polarizing.” Last year, even T.I. said he was fed up with the Australian rapper’s critics.
On Thursday (Jun. 11), Iggy addressed her haters once again with this tweet where she said people think it’s “cool” to dislike her.
It’s one of the reasons Iggy’s said she’d stay off social media. But she went back on Twitter to connect with her fans.

Criticism has impacted Iggy’s career. On June 8, the rapper cancelled her Pittsburgh Pride performance after receiving heavy backlash regarding since-deleted tweets.
“I will no longer be performing at Pittsburgh Pride on June 13th,” Iggy said in a statement on Twitter. “This has been a difficult decision as I truly support the event and LGBTQA communities; however, I feel my participation at this point would only serve to further distract from the true purpose of the event.”
Iggy’s sophomore LP is a follow-up to last year’s The New Classic. The album featured hits, including “Black Widow” and “Fancy.”
