Iggy Azalea: Lorde's Nirvana Tribute Is Not 'Appropriate'

The Australia-born star says that the tribute performance at last April's Rock Hall of Fame induction ceremony should feature Kurt Cobain's peers instead of Lorde.

AceShowbiz - %cIggy Azalea% is not a fan of %cLorde%'s tribute to %cNirvana% and the late %cKurt Cobain% at the Rock Hall of Fame induction ceremony earlier this year. The Australian raptress, who graces the cover of Billboard's latest issue, says in an interview with the magazine that the performance was "inappropriate."

"Nothing against her, but I think when you're doing a tribute to someone that's dead, generally it should be the person's peer," Azalea says of Lorde's involvement in the tribute, which took place 20 years after Nirvana's frontman Cobain died.

"Lorde is not Kurt Cobain's peer. No matter if she killed the performance or not, I just don't think it's appropriate," she adds. Lorde has yet commented on the news. Azalea has no words for %cKim Gordon%, %cSt. Vincent% or %cJoan Jett% who also performed alongside Nirvana's %cDave Grohl% and %cKrist Novoselic% during the April induction ceremony.

The 23-year-old star is currently enjoying the success of her %cCharli XCX%-assisted single, "Fancy". The track is now spending its second week at No. 1 on Billboard 100. She also claims the No. 2 spot on the same chart with her collaboration with %cAriana Grande%, "Problem".
