Iggy Azalea Turned Down The Chance To Work On Ariana Grande’s Debut LP ‘Yours Truly’
Iggy Azalea turned down the chance to work on Ariana Grande‘s debut LP Yours Truly because she mistook the pint-sized diva for a child. “She reached out to me for her first album,” the “Fancy” hitmaker revealed in an interview with Grammy.com. “And I didn’t do it even though I thought she was amazing because I thought she was much younger than what she is.”
“When I realized she was so close to my age, I was like — wait you’re an adult!” the Australian rap queen continues. “I felt that my music was kind of so risque and I knew she had a Disney show… I didn’t feel it was appropriate but then I actually met her and I found out that she’s a grown-up and I was like ‘oh ok!'” The duo subsequently worked together on summer smash “Problem”, so all’s well that end’s well.
