Iggy Azalea Quits Instagram, Britney Spears Collab Could Be Closer Than We Think
After handing over her Twitter to management on February 18, Iggy Azalea has also said “girl, bye” to Instagram. The Australian femcee deleted her account on Thursday (March 5) but it returned this morning with the following message: “Until further notice Iggy’s Instagram will be run by management. Iggy is taking a break from social media. She loves all her Azaleans!!”
The “Fancy” chart-topper’s social media blackout comes a couple of days after she begged fans not to re-post paparazzi pics in a lengthy Instagram caption. “No one should be made to feel like their own home is a prison because even your garden may be grounds for a photoshoot,” she wrote. “I really just want to urge my fans to be aware of what you are enabling when posting these pictures.”
While fans will, no doubt, miss Iggy’s cute puppy pics and backstage selfies, removing herself from social media seems like a good idea at this point. The constant media scrutiny and trolling was clearly affecting her wellbeing and she doesn’t need the distraction with a headline tour on the horizon and two singles to promote. “Trouble,” the 24-year-old’s collaboration with Jennifer Hudson, is impacting pop radio now and there is mounting chatter that her feature on Britney Spears‘ comeback single is only a matter of weeks away. See her Instagram farewell below.
Iggy says goodbye to Instagram:
Her final post:
This is me standing in front of my home, which has a 6ft high blacked out fence around it. No one should be made to feel like their own home is a prison because even your garden may be grounds for a photoshoot. I really just want to urge my fans to be aware of what you are enabling when posting these pictures. It is illegal to post images of someone in their home or property with a long range camera. I'm asking in the nicest way possible to please think twice about that. You're home is supposed to be your place of peace. I just want mine to be that too same as everyone else.
