Australian-born rapper Iggy Azalea is at the top of the Billboard charts thanks to her single, “Fancy.” While several celebs, including blogger Perez Hilton, congratulated the singer on her success, Love and Hip Hop alum K. Michelle was clearly unimpressed. And when Kay took to Twitter to air her grievances, Perez stuck up for Iggy. And so a feud was born.
It all started on Tuesday, May 27, when the “Can’t Raise a Man” singer tweeted, “How can you be from another country and rap like you’re from Memphis TN? But u don’t hear me though #offended.” That’s when Perez hopped online to tell Kay, “I think you chose the wrong hashtag and meant to say #jealous instead! x.” Not one to stand down, K. Michelle fired back at Perez saying, “stay in ur place Cinderella!!!!”
But guys, it didn’t end there. K. Michelle continued to stick it to Perez, by telling him, “You're 1 of the OLD girls, no one has been checking 4u since Lady Gaga disowned u. I said what I said!” adding, “stop worryin about MY opinion on music. Let ur little light shine and use ur platform & help BRING OUR GIRLS BACK.”
Perez came back for Kay, saying, “@kmichelle I'm happy to stay in my own little corner. And you get back to me when you have a #2 song on the @Billboard Hot 100. #YouNotFancy.” This obviously struck a chord in Kay, because the singer retaliated by saying “I know my lane and that's not even a desire of mine. My music is 2good” and “and there will NEVER be a need 2get back at YOU. You lost ur mind with ur body fat!”
Needless to say, the conversation didn’t get any better after that. After the two argued some more over Kay’s Billboard status, Perez flat out said K. Michelle is “jealous” of Iggy’s musical success. Growing tired of their ranting back and forth, K.Michelle left the conversation saying, “Now I'm going 2go heal sum hearts, u should do the same. P.S I like you better with the pink hair and ur 4 chins,” adding, “Logs off. I have spoken.”
Perez, however, wasn’t going to let K. Michelle have the last word, and tweeted to the singer, “Heal on! I'm gonna go research your songs now. I don't know a single one. Maybe I'll like your music most people don't know! xoxo.”
It looks like K.Michelle’s found another Twitter opponent who matches her penchant for witty comebacks. To prove it, Perez dubbed their spat a “Tweef” (aka Twitter Beef), and even took the time to poke at K. Michelle the following morning to let her know Iggy’s single went from No. 2 to No. 1. K. Michelle managed to show some restraint, even after Perez was encouraged to join forces with Kay’s arch nemesis, Tamar Braxton. Get ready, guys. We see a Twitter World War a-brewing.
