Iggy Azalea Says May Stay Off Social Media “Forever” Weeks After Quitting

Iggy Azalea has been completely off social media for a few weeks now, after various arguments on Twitter with people like Eminem, Azealia Banks and Nicki Minaj. Now, the BBC is reporting Azalea may avoid social media completely. That’s because, during the time she’s been off it, she’s realized how much more she’s enjoying her life now her team is currently posting social media updates for her.

You can’t really blame Iggy, anyway. After all, not only did she get into some pretty vicious arguments on Twitter, particularly with Azealia Banks, the black rapper known for her Twitter feuds and who accused Azalea of “appropriating black culture” by virtue of being a rap artist (because according to Banks only black artists should be rappers), Iggy was also attacked by fans of the artists she was feuding with as well.

So, it will be interesting to see if Iggy Azalea is as good as her word and stays off Twitter and its ilk permanently. Or if she gets sucked back in like so many do.

Personally, if I was Iggy, I’d steer clear of social media as, particularly for celebrities, the wrong social media post can quickly disintegrate into one almighty mess. Really. Who needs the hassle.
