Iggy Azalea set tongues wagging when she randomly admitted to hitting the studio with Britney Spears in November. She didn’t give any further details but social media soon started buzzing with fake track titles (“Bliss” being the most common). The femcee finally shed more light on the tantalizing collaboration yesterday (December 10), when she responded to a fan on Twitter. “To answer ur question: bliss isn’t real or the name of our song. also our song isn’t about booty or sonically similar.”

Obviously in a chatty mood, the multiple-Grammy nominee also confirmed that the next single from Reclassified is Jennifer Hudson-assisted bop “Trouble,” which is a blow for those of us hoping to hear “Heavy Crown” on the radio. The reason? Radio formats and audience testing. “[‘Heavy Crown’ is] not formatted for pop or rhythmic radio and i would lose two formats of airplay,” Iggy explained. “People need to realize they ‘test’ the songs w ppl and give them scores. thats how it works, they pick based on what scores.”

And if that isn’t enough I-G-G-Y news for one day, the “Beg For It” hitmaker also followed Selena Gomez on Instagram this morning — prompting speculation that she’s working on the former teen queen’s Interscope debut. See Iggy’s Twitter spree after the jump.
