It’s on! Iggy took home the award for best song at the Billboard Music Awards and Nicki’s fans are screaming mad about it. They claim that the Aussie hip hop star was ineligible to win and they’re demanding that she give back her trophy!
It was the night of Iggy Azalea’s, 24, life when she took home the best song award at the 2015 Billboard Music Awards on May 17, but it seems like nothing is ever simple for Nick Young’s, 29, main squeeze. Now controversy has erupted over her big win and Nicki Minaj’s fans are driving the cause to take her award back!
Nicki Minaj Fans Start Petition For Iggy Azalea To Give Back Billboard Award
The “Fancy” singer has been under attack from all over the hip-hop world and this latest blow from Nicki and her fans stings! They are claiming that the Australian rapper shouldn’t even have been eligible to win her award and already have over 13,000 signatures on their petition to take it from her.
“Even after receiving a Billboard Music Award on Sunday for Best Song, Azalea’s facing backlash from Nicki Minaj fans who claim her award is invalid due to a technicality. Their response? Create an online petition in an attempt to remove the accolade,” reports Breatheheavy.com.
“Iggy Azalea’s 2015 Billboard Award for Best Song has been proven invalid. The eligibility time period for nominations is March 10th, 2014 through March 2015. “Fancy” was released on February 17th, 2014, nearly a month before the eligibility starting,” the petition states in part.
It seems like the “Starships” singer is dishing out shade where ever she goes these days. She took a big swing at rapper Tyga, 25, for his relationship with Kylie Jenner, 17, in her music video for her track “Feeling Myself.”
In it, the rapper wears a jersey with the number 17 and the word “pervert” printed on it. Clearly a shot at Tyga’s relationship with the seventeen year old Kylie. Sounds like Nicki isn’t slowing doing her diss train anytime soon.
What do you think HollywoodLifers? Should Iggy have to give back her award? Sound off below!
