So Iggy Azalea isn't pleased with the performance of her not-quite Song of the Summer team-up with Britney Spears, "Pretty Girls." In a candid Twitter Q&A post-mortem, Azalea faulted a lack of promotional push — from Spears and the label — for its being basically a flop.
@rhuancesarr its difficult to send a song up the charts without additional promo and tv performances etc. unfortunately im just featured...— IGGY AZALEA (@IGGYAZALEA) June 28, 2015
@britspears23 im sure you would have enjoyed some extra performances etc. of the song. am i the bad guy for wishing we had done more?— IGGY AZALEA (@IGGYAZALEA) June 29, 2015
Azalea and Spears only performed the song live exactly once, at the Billboard Music Awards. Reactions to Azalea's comments suggesting she was throwing shade at Spears prompted the Australian to respond further, employing what could very well be a common Aussie expression but is just plain icky to American ears:
@ThePopZone my comment is factual, it applies to any song. I dont have to suck the womans asshole 24/7 to be her friend, do i? bye girls.— IGGY AZALEA (@IGGYAZALEA) June 29, 2015
Ew. And then Spears herself chimed in — indirectly, at least — with:
Can’t wait to get back to Vegas. So thankful I have shows for the rest of the year to look forward to... #YouWantAPieceOfMe— Britney Spears (@britneyspears) June 29, 2015
So, you know, welcome to the most yawn-inducing feud of 2015. Yay?
