Iggy's social media future in limbo

Iggy Azalea thinks paparazzi is disgusting.

Iggy Azalea is enjoying not using social media so much she doubts she will return.

The Australian rapper ditched Twitter in February after becoming disillusioned with the online world. Having been embroiled in Twitter spats with Snoop Dogg and Azealia Banks, Iggy grew tired of the constant negativity. When she saw mean comments about bikini photos of her by paparazzi it was the final straw.

“[It’s] so nice not to be on social media so I’m kind of going to continue that until, maybe forever,” she said in an interview with the AP news agency.

“I think it’s disgusting. I don’t think it’s nice to stick your camera through somebody’s fence and hedge and take a picture of them in their yard and think that’s OK at all.”

Iggy’s social media profiles are now handled by members of her team, which gives her more time to work on her career.

She was due to begin a tour next month but it’s had to be pushed back because she couldn’t book the venues she wanted. Although that’s not ideal, the 24-year-old wanted to make sure her vision was completely realised.

Plus, it means she is now freed up to head into the studio again.

“I didn’t anticipate having any time to completely finish it, but now that I have kind of the time,” she said. “I’d love to have an album at the end of 2015.”

She’s known to have already laid down a track with Britney Spears and the pair clearly had a great time working together. Britney has gushed about how much she loves Iggy, with the hip-hop star returning the praise.

“I love Britney. She’s super-sweet and I just want to hang out with her all the time,” she said.
