First it was girl group TLC dissing Rihanna — and now we have another singer-to-singer slam! ‘Fancy’ rapper Iggy Azalea has totally dissed ‘Royals’ singer Lorde over her Nirvana tribute performance on April 10. Ouch!
Iggy Azalea — who turns 24 years old today — is throwing major shade at Lorde, 17. The Australian rapper bashed Lorde for her performance with the remaining members of rock group Nirvana (their lead singer, Kurt Cobain, died in April 1994) at the Rock Hall of Fame Induction ceremony on April 10, 2014 at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center.
Iggy Azalea Disses Lorde Over Nirvana Tribute Performance
Lorde performed “All Apologies”with Nirvana — and Iggy thought the collaboration was “inappropriate.”
“Nothing against her, but I think when you’re doing a tribute to someone that’s dead, generally it should be the person’s peer,” Iggy revealed to Billboard magazine. “Lorde is not Kurt Cobain’s peer. No matter if she killed the performance or not, I just don’t think it’s appropriate.”
Wow! That’s some major shade. While Iggy wasn’t dissing Lorde directly, she bashed the whole performance.
Lorde hasn’t responded to Iggy’s comments yet, but we think what Iggy said about Lorde could also be filed as “inappropriate.” We think Lorde rocked her performance with Nirvana — and if the Rock Hall of Fame committee thought the performance was going to be inappropriate, they would’ve asked a different singer to perform!
Iggy Azalea’s ‘DWTS’ Mess Up — And Reaction
Iggy’s had her own performance problems before. When performing her song “Fancy”at the Dancing With The Stars finale on May 20, Iggy was way off beat. “I’m so sorry but there is something wrong with my ears,” Iggy explained to the audience about why she wasn’t singing in tune with the track. The rapper later logged on to Twitter to say “sh*t happens!”
