Iggy Azalea has said she is not going to finish her new album and plans to pursue different creative endeavors.
The Grammy-nominated rapper made an apparent retirement announcement in a message posted on X, formerly Twitter.
“I’ve always been someone who finds my joy in being creative & seeing my ideas come to life. For a long time I used music to deliver my big crazy ideas to the world,” the 33-year-old artist wrote. “I know a lot of people have this idea that I was ‘bullied away from music’ and that’s something I’ve always laughed at because I’d never be bullied out of anything! In fact, I’m too stubborn. I think I’ve even resisted changes within myself at times, purely because I don’t like being viewed as someone who quits.”
Azalea revealed that she now feels more passionately about design and creative direction than she does about song writing.
“That’s why I want to let you know that I’m not going to finish my album,” she said. “It’s been paused for a few months while I was giving direction for a different project & in truth I just haven’t felt the urge to go back to it.”
She apologized to fans who were waiting for new music, which would have been her fourth studio album.
