AceShowbiz - Iggy Azalea clapped back at trolls online who accused the rapper of "not working hard enough" after she appeared to announce a career hiatus.
The 29-year-old rapper admitted she was confused as to why people thought she was "taking a hiatus" when she is simply "working on a new project" like she's "supposed to be" - after she posted last week, ends February 23, that "time away is needed."
"Why do people think I'm taking a hiatus when I'm just working on a new project like I'm supposed to be? Y'all weird," the "Fancy" hitmaker penned.
As users rejoiced over the star's post, writing, "WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN?" and explaining the speculation of a career break rose "because you always posted on social during your other projects," Iggy insisted she's hard at work on new creative endeavors.
Telling fans that she would rather only share updates on "finished" projects as opposed to "101 ideas," she added, "True, I have in the past but that's why I'm not (posting a lot) now."
"It's better to show one finished idea than speak about 101 ideas aloud and have people disappointed you didn't follow through on all 101 of."
Last week, Iggy told fans she "hasn't forgotten" them as she announced time away from the spotlight, later teasing, "When I'm back, you'll know. And I will be back."
The confusion comes after the star's sophomore album, "In My Defense", only debuted at No. 50 on the Billboard 200 when it was released back in July (19) - five years after her debut release topped the same chart.
Its follow-up, the "Wicked Lips" EP, was plagued by a series of delays, and failed to chart upon release in December.
