Iggy Azalea, the Australian model with a Southern rapper accent, is going to let Jill Scott and Eve tell her how to behave. Asked during a radio interview on Shade 45’s Sway in the Morning to comment on Iggy’s misappropriation of Black culture, Eve suggested the blonde beauty’s style isn’t authentic.
“She’s from a different place and I’ve said this before, it would be dope to hear her with her swag,” Eve said. “Who are you, what are you, what is that?” Both ladies also suggested that Iggy was rapping with a “Blaccent.”
On Wednesday, Azalea took to Twitter to respond to the diss:
“There’s a difference between being yourself and being your stereotype. When people I’ve never met say I should act more like ‘myself,’ I feel like they’re really saying, ‘act more like how I stereotype you to be so I can feel comfortable.'”
“I’m myself, as strange as I may be, daily. I think it’s really important we all feel free to explore or feel passionate about whatever you wish and I hope all my young fans take what I’m saying and remember it if you ever find yourself in similar shoes. Be as complex and multidimensional and interesting as you possibly can.”
Jill didn’t take long to respond, tweeting late Wednesday night:
“People perceive what they want. If I said I like Florida Oranges more than Cali’s, I’d be hating. Chill please. Like what you like and otherwise.”
Jill and Eve join Nicki Minaj, Snoop Dogg and Azealia Banks as people who do not appear to think very highly of Miss Azalea.
