Rita Ora Receives Shade From Best Pal Iggy Azalea, Collab Request Shot Down: 'Leave It Alone'

Rita Ora Receives Shade From Best Pal Iggy Azalea, Collab Request Shot Down: ‘Leave It Alone’

Not every thought needs to be tweeted.


Apparently, Iggy Azalea doesn’t see it that way because she just dissed her good friend Rita Ora via Twitter. It wasn’t a full-on diss. Meaning, she didn’t say anything disrespectful or overtly negative, but she did shoot down one of the singer’s ideas.

In an interview with The Sun, Ora said that she wanted to re-create “Lady Marmalade,” the cut performed by Christina Aguilera, Mya, Pink and Lil’ Kim back in 2001. The song was originally sung by the group Labelle, fronted by singer Patti Labelle in 1975.

“I’m trying to round up the troops,” said Rita during the interview. A piece of that sit-down was published by Billboard magazine. “I think it would be me, Miley [Cyrus], Charli XCX, she’d be fun and Iggy.”

Evidently, Ms. Azalea wasn’t fond of the idea and snuffed it out while it was still in its infancy stage. “That was an iconic moment in pop history and should be left alone,” she wrote.

Afterwards, Iggy sent another tweet and seemed extremely annoyed.

“Please leave me out of the whole ‘Lady Marmalade’ conversation,” wrote the Aussie rapper. “I have nothing to do with Rita’s ideas, and I agree it should be left alone.”

By the looks of it, people were blasting the “Fancy” rhymer as soon as Ora’s request hit the Internet.

From here, the question is how will Rita take Iggy’s comments? Will she be offended or let her friend’s words role off her back?

Right now it’s hard to guess but either way Ms. Azalea has to be conscious that these type of tweets may cause friction, especially when it sounds like Ora was just talking hypothetically about the “Lady Marmalade” remake.

What do you think? Was Iggy throwing shade or was she just expressing herself? Please let us know by answering our poll question below.
