When fans heard Iggy Azalea‘s Rita Ora collaboration “Black Widow,” they started pegging the two pop stars as best friends. By then, Azalea had opened for Ora during her 2013 tour. After The New Classic break-up anthem surfaced, though, they would be quizzed on their favorite Spice Girls and shoe-purchasing habits. Azalea posed for Instagram with Ora in her underwear, only to actually set the record straight on their relationship on air.
“I think people would like her to be my bestie, but she’s my friend,” she said to Ryan Seacrest. “You know, we have a working relationship.”
When Ora joined Azalea at London’s Wireless Festival to perform “Black Widow” for the first time, though, she behaved as a bestie would. Specifically, they met at the middle for Ora to dip and “bite” at Azalea’s hips like a puppy with a chew toy. “You jealous? You should be!” Ora said on Instagram, with the hashtags #sorryicouldnthelpmyself and #sorryNick!!, as in NBA boyfriend Nick Young. So much for Azalea’s statement.
