“I also want to let my fans know iam taking some time away from social media. I need to be happy and it is too negative and draining,” Iggy Azalea tweeted.
Late yesterday (February 19), Iggy Azalea announced via her Twitter account that she was taking a break from social media, citing the Internet’s “petty” tendencies as the primary reasons for doing so.
Via a string of tweets, the Grand Hustle recording artist spoke about how the Internet’s “negative” ways have goaded her into becoming an angry individual, and that she could not allow it to have such an impact. In an attempt to counter this, she announced that she would be taking herself off social media.
“Just got back from a great vacation, came online and saw apparently it’s shocking and unheard of to be a woman and have cellulite. Lol,” Azalea wrote. “I just want to have peace and relaxation time without a perve with long distance lense hiding out taking pictures, everyone deserves peace.
“I feel the hatred and pettiness i see online at all times is at making me become an angry person and I cannot be that,” she added. “To become nasty because of the way I feel iam treated would be a disservice to my fans and I promise i will try to keep smiling.”
Azalea then revealed that she was taking a break from social media and that her management team were being installed to run her accounts from now on.
“But I also want to let my fans know iam taking some time away from social media. I need to be happy and it is too negative and draining,” Azalea says. “My management will tweet/run my accounts from today onwards with updates etc unless any message is signed -IA. Love you all. Peace out!”
She then added that, “The Internet is the ugliest reflection of man kind there is.”
