Iggy Azalea: I Deserve A Break

Iggy Azalea has claimed the reason she cancelled her Great Escape arena tour was because she needed a mental break. In a statement given to Seventeen Magazine, the Australian rapper said she also needed to focus on a new creative direction. “I’ve had a different creative change of heart,” said Azalea of her decision to cancel the tour dates for the second time. “I want to start totally anew, and if I stayed on my tour, that would mean I wouldn’t even be able to start working on that until after Christmas.” She added: “On top of that, mentally, to be honest with you, I just feel I deserve a break. I’ve been going non-stop for the past two years, nearly every single day. I’m not in a bad place. I think sometimes when you say you need a mental break, people are like, ‘A mental break? Be sure you don’t have a breakdown because you’re sad.’” Azalea had originally been due to play the series of North American arena dates in April, but in March she postponed them until September. The tour will now be replaced by live shows next year, promoting a new album, although no firm details of either are confirmed.
