Iggy Azalea’s ride from “da rillest rappuh in da game” to da rillest Dancing with the Stars contestant got a boost yesterday when she announced that she’s no longer going to headline Pittsburgh Pride on Saturday. As soon as Iggy was announced as the headliner, several LGBT groups came out against the decision, because she’s not exactly known as being a champion of the LGBT community and they pulled out some of the offensive tweets she’s shat up in the past. At first, Delta Foundation, the organization that runs Pittsburgh Pride, defended their decision to give the Pig Latin rapping chanteuse the headlining spot. But after several groups dropped out of Pride and Pittsburgh City Council President Bruce Kraus spat on the decision, the city has screamed: I-G-G-BYE! Iggy tweeted this announcement/apology, which she totally didn’t write because there’s not one “dat” in there.
First Iggy’s entire arena tour and now Pittsburgh Pride. At this rate, the only gig she’ll be lucky to book is the opening spot for Lil’ Kim at the Plastic Surgeons of Fort Myers Beach Convention in a conference room at a Best Western. (“Shut up, asshole, we don’t want her either.” – The Plastic Surgeons of Fort Myers Beach Association) Since we all love a big comeback, I wouldn’t be surprised if Iggy busted out a big comeback next year. But as someone who’s been waiting for Stacey Q’s big comeback for centuries, I’ll be pissed if Iggy has a big comeback before a true artist like Stacey Q does.
And Delta Foundation announced this afternoon (no, they didn’t) that they are replacing Iggy with Chris Brown!
Here’s Iggy taking her new face and engagement ring for a little stroll in L.A. the other day.
