Perez Hilton won’t let anyone pick on Iggy Azalea.
If you’ve got something nasty to say to the Australian rapper, then you’d better take it up with Hilton first. Instead of letting Azalea fight her own battles on social media, the notorious celebrity gossip blogger waded into a fray with singer K. Michelle. The encounter was certainly interesting, though it’s essentially just another petty Twitter fight between two marginally familiar faces.
Here’s what happened: K. Michelle took a moment out of her busy schedule to toss some random shade in Iggy’s general direction. It didn’t take long for the tweet to catch the world’s attention, prompting Perez Hilton to issue a comment of his own.
Instead of forcing you to decrypt what these virtual combatants are saying in their 140-character attacks, we’ve translated everything for your reading pleasure. It’s worth noting that Azalea hasn’t responded to the troublemaker’s original post as of this writing.
“How can you be from another country and rap like you’re from Memphis, Tennessee? But you don’t hear me though,” K. Michelle wrote, a post that included the hashtag #offended. Instead of just leaving the comment to wither and die on the Twitter vine, Perez Hilton decided to lash out at the singer for her snarky remark.
“I think you chose the wrong hashtag and meant to say ‘jealous’ instead,” Perez Hilton wrote. Not surprisingly, the songstress wasn’t too thrilled about receiving a barb from the blogger. This ultimately resulted in several nasty retorts, all of which are gathered in the block quote below.
“Stay in your place Cinderella! You’re one of the old girls, no one has been checking for you since Lady Gaga disowned you. I said what I said! Stop worrying about my opinion on music. Let your little light shine and use your platform and help BRING OUR GIRLS BACK.”
Perez’s response to this tirade was simple: Stop worry about Azalea and concentrate on recording a hit song. K. Michelle claimed she was more than happy with her own little space in the music industry, a statement that earned another response from Hilton. Seemingly irritated by the entire exchange, the singer decided to unleash another mean-spirited rant.
Check it out:
“Please use your bought followers and do everybody some good. Stop licking a** to be a cool kid. Your job is to be a nosey queen and mine is to make great music. So the next time you pop up in my mentions come better. Now I’m going to go heal some hearts, you should do the same. P.S I like you better with the pink hair and your four chins.”
There you have it, folks — Perez Hilton’s epic Twitter battle with K. Michelle. Are you surprised that the celebrity blogger stuck up for Iggy Azalea?
