Iggy Azalea Responds to Eve, Jill Scott

There's a difference between being yourself and being your stereotype.

Published January 28, 2015

Iggy Azalea has once again found herself on the defense.

Azalea tweeted earlier today about being stereotyped (Jan. 28), likely in response to  Eve and Jill Scott's comments about her during a Shade 45 interview last week.

"There's a difference between being yourself and being your stereotype,” she wrote. “When people I've never met say I should act more like ‘myself,’ I feel like they're really saying ‘act more like how I sterotype [sic] you to be, so I can feel comfortable.’ I'm myself as strange as I may be, daily. I think it's really important we all feel free to explore or feel passionate about whatever u wish."

It seems that the "Beg for It" rapper has been on the receiving end of a lot of criticism from hip hop lately, although it doesn’t seem to be breaking her spirit. 

She ended today’s reaction by urging her “young fans” to be as “complex and multidimensional and interesting” as possible.
