Read Iggy's comments on the decision.
Iggy Azalea is taking a break from social media. The 'Fancy' singer took to Twitter, in what will be her last posts for the foreseeable;e future, to tell fans that she feels she is taking some time away from social media because it is making her become "an angry person."
The move appears to come following a Valentines holiday in Hawaii that Iggy has recently returned from with her basketball star boyfriend Nick Young.
From now on Iggy's management will run her social media accounts and any posts by her will be signed 'IA.'
Just got back from a great vacation, came online and saw apparently it's shocking and unheard of to be a woman and have cellulite. Lol.— IGGY AZALEA (@IGGYAZALEA) February 19, 2015
I just want to have peace and relaxation time without a perve with long distance lense hiding out taking pictures, everyone deserves peace.— IGGY AZALEA (@IGGYAZALEA) February 19, 2015
I feel the hatred and pettiness i see online at all times is at making me become an angry person and I cannot be that.— IGGY AZALEA (@IGGYAZALEA) February 19, 2015
To become nasty because of the way I feel iam treated would be a disservice to my fans and I promise i will try to keep smiling.— IGGY AZALEA (@IGGYAZALEA) February 19, 2015
But I also want to let my fans know iam taking some time away from social media. I need to be happy and it is too negative and draining.— IGGY AZALEA (@IGGYAZALEA) February 19, 2015
My management will tweet/run my accounts from today onwards with updates etc unless any message is signed -IA. Love you all. Peace out!— IGGY AZALEA (@IGGYAZALEA) February 19, 2015
In the past Twitter has seen many of Iggy Azalea's feuds aired publicly. Most recently she got into a spat with Azealia Banks on the social network, but she's also used it to respond to negative comments that Eminem previously made about her.
