is learning the hard way that nothing on the Internet ever really dies.
A number of the Aussie rapper's very old tweets have resurfaced lately, including one posted three years ago in which she insinuated that Nicki Minaj lip-syncs: "LMAO at Nikki saying she did the BET Awards live. Errrr. If you say so girl."
The tweet made the rounds yet again as fans RTed and passed it off as new, and eventually Nicki responded in a now-deleted tweet: "Laughing at sh*t u can’t even do…study dat formula…cornball….LMFAO."
This was, apparently, more than Iggy cared to deal with. On Tuesday, she wrote:
Listen. I see a trend on twitter in the last week that involves ppl retweeting artists old tweets. im talking OLD, done and dusted ass ones. and while i know most artists are gonna go the silent route and ignore that its happening I'm going to talk to you even though i know the ppl who get hype off the whole thing are immature anyhow. but hear goes: YES. i have an opinion. and NO, even when im a fan of someone it doesnt mean i like EVERY THING THAT THEY do. there was once a time when i could crack jokes, talk about tv shows or whos record i hate and whos i loved etc. on twitter. i cant do that now. in part because you guys would make life a nightmare and in part because it would just be unprofessional. but remember there was a time when my twitter was just for my friends and family to see. just like yours probably is now. anyhow - to me, i feel like what you guys are doing is really unfair. thats my opinion. right now in 2013.
Iggy may be over the drama, but she's still having a bad week. On Friday, she tweeted, "
So. just got to london and im feeling sick as a dog. took some sleeping pills on the plane and they were a terrible idea. i think @samiknight got the sleeping pills mixed up with the vomit pills."
This isn't the first time Iggy has been accused of hating on Minaj. Last month, she unleashed a furious rant after a journalist quoted her as saying Minaj's most recent album was "not dynamic."
