Iggy Azalea seems to have started a feud with Rita Ora following her Twitter comment on “Lady Marmalade” that rubbed off the “X-Factor” judge the wrong way.
It all began when Rita Ora first broached the idea of remaking “Lady Marmalade,” that was popularized by Christina Aguilera, Li’l Kim, Maya and Pink for the movie “Mouli Rouge” in 2001. Of course, it was a remake of the original song by the group Labelle in 1975.
In an interview with The Sun, per NME , Rita Ora said that it’s always been her dream to do a cover of “Lady Marmalade.
“I’m trying to round up the troops,” she said. “I think it would be me, Miley [Cyrus], Charli XCX – she’d be fun – and Iggy [Azalea].”
But Iggy Azalea just sparked a feud with Rita Ora when she dissed the idea of doing “Lady Marmalade.”
“Please leave me out of the whole Lady Marmalade conversation, Nick Young’s fiancee tweeted . “I have nothing to do with ritas ideas & agree it should be left alone. Thanks”
One fan gave an advice, “delete this, you will be in the blogs pretty soon.”
But Iggy Azalea is in a fighting mood as she replied, “Good, i want it to be. blog away.”
Another slammed Iggy Azalea for forgetting her roots. “Remember how you were Rita’s support act and she made you famous? Now you’re publicly dragging her, you deserve nothing,” User Gemma wrote.
Despite creating the feud, E! News reported that Rita Ora’s suggestion to remake “Lady Marmalade” is not so “outlandish.”
“After all, Moulin Rouge fans know that the iconic hit was already remade back in 2001 featuring Pink, Christina Aguilera, Lil’ Kim and Mya,” it said. “But it seems like it’s not so much the remaking of the song that has people feeling some type of way-it’s the people involved.”
To date, Miley Cyrus and Charli XCX have yet to respond to Rita Ora’s suggestion to do a remake of “Lady Marmalade.”
