Iggy Azalea Is Taking a Much-Needed Break From Twitter

"Trouble" rapper goes on hiatus over paparazzi pics.

Iggy Azalea has had enough of the Internet trolls, pervy photogs, Papa Johns drivers, and probably Azealia Banks.

Pics of the pop star vacationing in a bikini circulated on the Web this week, prompting her to officially hand over her Twitter account to her management.


"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," she wrote. "I just want to have peace and relaxation time without a perve with long distance lense hiding out taking pictures, everyone deserves peace."

That was only the beginning of her late-night rant. "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 explained. "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. ... 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."

Instead, she said she's taking the presidential route, "My management will tweet/run my accounts from today onwards with updates etc," she noted, "unless any message is signed -IA."

"I think she should focus on what got her here," her ever-supportive Grand Hustle mentor T.I. previously said, after the Aussie-born "Trouble" rapper waged a Web war over a Steve Madden photo shoot.

Apparently, in complete agreement, Iggy ended her social-media run with this observation: "The Internet is the ugliest reflection of mankind there is."

No word as yet on whether on not this applies to her Facebook or Instagram pages. is your #1 source for Black celebrity news, photos, exclusive videos and all the latest in the world of hip hop and R&B music.
