Don’t expect Britney Spears and Iggy Azalea to become besties anytime soon! While they collaborated on ‘Pretty Girls’ earlier this year, Iggy lashed out at the Queen of Pop after the song didn’t do as well as she had hoped. But Britney couldn’t care less about Iggy.
Iggy Azalea, 25, is known for speaking her mind, but the singer may have gone too far when she went after one of the biggest artists in the music industry, Britney Spears, 33. It all started when Iggy took to her Twitter on June 28, saying she did all she could to help get their collaboration “Pretty Girls” out there. She even hinted that Britney didn’t do enough promo to get the song the attention it needed. HollywoodLife.com has learned EXCLUSIVELY what Britney thinks of Iggy’s harsh comments.
“Britney is paying no attention to the diss. She can’t respond every time that she is thrown any type of shade,” an insider told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “She is not upset. She will not respond and she will not take it to Iggy’s level. She is going by the credo: if you have nothing nice to say, say nothing at all.”
The initial tweet that Iggy posted said, “It’s difficult to send a song up the charts without additional promo and tv performances etc. unfortunately I’m just featured…” One thing is for certain, Brit has been in the business a lot longer than Iggy and if she wanted to get the song up the charts she could have.
While Iggy has broken her silence on this issue publicly, we’ve learned the two haven’t spoken to each other about the song since performing it at the 2015 Billboard Music Awards. “They have not spoken at all over this issue. They haven’t seen each other since the Billboard performance,” a source told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “Iggy doesn’t like how everything turned out, she really thought this was going to be a huge hit. She is just upset that it didn’t get the notarioty she thought it deserved. She is a bit bitter with how the process took her down this road, she had other dreams for the track.”
