Iggy Azalea: Half the Internet Is Doing Devil's Work

Rapper joins Kendrick Lamar's "last days" virtual chat.

Published January 12, 2015

K Dot needn't even drop a "Control" verse to get the Internet to stop like Beyoncé.

Well, no one's actually like Beyoncé, but after Billboard magazine posted Kendrick Lamar's comments about the last days (we're in them, he said), Iggy Azalea (let her do her thing, he said) and Ferguson, Azealia Banks jumped on Twitter to call him out about the latter and, well, no one's like Azealia Banks either.

"Should've never happened,” Lamar said, about the killing of Missouri teen Michael Brown by a police officer. Adding, “When we don’t have respect for ourselves, how do we expect them to respect us? It starts from within. Don't start with just a rally, don't start from looting — it starts from within."

That's the "stupidest" thing Banks ever heard a Black man say, she tweeted. "Speak for your f**king self.”

Lupe Fiasco and Kid Cudi offered their two cents, among many Twitter users. The topic of discussion has been ongoing trend on Black Twitter for months.

Somehow, however, it all came back to Iggy. "Someone I know makes a positive judgment about me and as a result a million people who know neither of us are outraged. Irony Is real," she tweeted, a response to Lamar's "encouragement," reports HipHopDX.

She then goes full-on Alanis Morissette. "God is the only being I've never personally met whose opinion I'd consider strongly and he shows me daily he approves by blessing me ... There's no need for you to try to do his job for him! ... half of the Internet out here doing the devils work free of charge and don't even realize."

Have you ever stepped in front of a side-eye that wasn't meant for you? The glare is real. By the end of the night, Iggy settled for a discussion about the fashion gods. "Body con is merciless," she wrote about the figure-hugging fabric.
