Iggy Azalea And Nick Young's Cute PDA
Iggy Azalea and Nick Young made the most of a kiss cam at a college basketball game. See the PDA.

Iggy Azalea has received more than her fair share of online abuse since breaking big with 2014 chart-topper “Fancy,” which could explain why she posted a link to an article called “I’ve Come To Hate So Much Of The Internet” on Twitter last night (January 20). She followed that up with a string of tweets this morning, pointing out the disconnect between print magazines and their online counterparts. “I’ll be at the supermarket and see a face smiling at me endorsed by the same name that tried to convince me why its cool to hate that person and it seems like it’s all so conflicted,” the Aussie femcee wrote.

“The online version of a mag is always worse and by worse I mostly mean negative as fuck and purposely filled with misleading ‘buzz’ lines that often have little to do with the story,” Iggy continued. “Also it’s wierd [sic] to see publications that are known (in their physical version) to be specifically geared towards something ie. Forbes, Time having online versions of their brand that don’t seem to be focused on catering to their original demo. ie: people with brains.”

But she wasn’t done yet. “Media plays a big role in shaping society and it’s a problem when we consume information online and it’s undertone is very negative,” the “Black Widow” diva elaborated futher. “Anyway, this isn’t me saying all media is bad. Im just saying: Give ppl more credit. dont trade your brand identity for clicks.” Iggy makes several valid points but her truth tea party isn’t likely to win her any friends at the publications she just clocked.
