You shouldn’t do business with friends, or make friends with your business partners, that’s the message we are getting from the current Britney Spears/Iggy Azalea feud.
The two stars recently released an underperforming single called “Pretty Girls,” with Iggy Azalea quickly assigning blame to anyone but herself at the moment.
The small social-media feud began earlier this week when a fan on Twitter asked Iggy why “Pretty Girls” failed to be the chart-smasher that it could have been. It’s a great question and one that might not have a simple solution.
the song was, after-all, a collaboration with two of music’s leading ladies but “Pretty Girls” quickly fell of the top of charts after it was released.
Iggy replied to the fan, “its difficult to send a song up the charts without addition promo and tv performances etc. unforfunately im just featured…” Things got a little more heated when Spears’ fans saw-red with the comment and fired back at Iggy for the loaded remark.
That’s when Iggy replied, “My comment is factual, it applies to any song. I dont have to suck the womans a****** 24/7 to be her friend, do i? bye girls.”
It should be said that Iggy later tried to clarify her statement, Tweeting out, “Genuine friends have genuine opinions. Its possible & healthy to have a differing thought without it being bitchy or shade.”
That’s when Spears decided to take things into her own hands Tweeting with a loaded remark of her own. “Can’t wait to get back to Vegas. So thankful I have shows for the rest of the year to look forward to… #YouWantAPieceOfMe” Spear’s Tweeted to her followers.
The underlining burn refers to the fact that Azalea had cancelled her world tour this year. At the time of the announcement Iggy claimed that the decision to cancel her tour came from “a different creative change of heart.”
While the Australian rapper may have simply needed a break from touring, or if there were creative differences that caused her to cancel the tour remains to be known but many people in the industry think the decision came from a lack of ticket sales.
On the other side of touring world stands Britney Spears, who recently took up a two-year residency at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas for an estimated $30 million.
No one wins in Twitter feuds except for the onlookers but both stars could bath in tubs of cash for the next year and they still wouldn’t have an income problem, so we think they will be fine.
