Iggy Azalea 'Glad' To Lose Out To Eminem For Best Rap Album Grammy Award: 'People Hate Me Enough Already'

The announcement that Iggy’s debut album ‘The New Classic’ had received a nomination for Best Rap Album at this year’s Grammys was a particularly controversial one, particularly in light of the fact that several black artists had been snubbed in the same category.

In a radio interview with Power 106, the ‘Fancy’ rapper admitted she was “glad” to have lost out in the category to Eminem, claiming: “I did not want to win that award. My speech would have been like, 'F**k this. I don't want it, take it. Get it away from me'.

"People already hate me enough. I do not need to be hated any more."

However, she proved there were no hard feelings towards him when she addressed him on her Instagram page, writing: “I couldn't be happier to have lost to someone as talented and deserving as you.”

She wrote: "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."
