Halsey (video below) was asked about artists she collaborated with on her latest album and she talked about people she wouldn’t collaborate with. She brought up Iggy and mentioned how she disregarded black culture.
“Yeah, it’s a bit weird to bring someone up in an interview that you weren’t asked about. It’s kind of like if we were talking right now and I just randomly started talking about Janet Jackson or something,” Iggy said on Australian radio show Smallzy’s Surgery. “To me, because I’m a famous person and I know a lot of the time people have opinions and they’re not always accurate, I really try very hard not to give my personal opinions about people that I don’t know. I don’t know her, I’ve never met her.”
“I thought it was a bit of a strange thing to throw that out there,” Iggy added. “She’s young and I hope she learns maybe to be a bit less judgmental when she’s kind of in the same shoes. I’m sure she’s getting judged all the time as well by people who don’t really know her. Maybe it’d be good for her to try to be a little more empathetic to other people that are in the same situation.”
Iggy also reportedly said, “I think she got asked a question and she felt uncomfortable with, for whatever reason she brought me up and felt like that was a good deflection. I don’t think it worked… I don’t really think I had anything to do with it. It was a weird thing to bring me in to it.”
