Iggy Azalea is celebrating the completion of her contract with Island Records, a division of Universal Music Group.
Many artists would die for a major label contract. Iggy Azalea was apparently dying to get out of hers for a long time.

Now, that moment has arrived. The rapper tweeted on Saturday to let fans know she’s officially out of her deal. Iggy says she’s now free to release whatever kind of music she’d like, whenever she’d like.

The move comes amidst significant changes at Island, most notably the departure of president/CEO David Massey to Sony Music. Whether the two departures are linked is difficult to say.

Despite her newly found creative freedom, Azalea says she doesn’t have any plans to release new music this year.
“I am nowhere near ready direction wise etc. with the stuff I’ve been working on, and I don’t wanna jump the gun and have some messy era aesthetically. I’m aiming to be ready to share new music early next year!”

The Australian rapper has claimed in a series of now-deleted tweets that she’d love to breakaway from her record label and take full ownership of her career.

Iggy – who is currently attached to Island Records – wrote on the micro-blogging platform: “I love Island, but don’t want a label. There are conversations happening at the moment. I want to be my own boss. I feel I would be better off if I could make my own timeline etc choices and I have the funds to do it. (sic)”

The 28-year-old star admitted she didn’t know whether her ambition would come to fruition and also insisted she doesn’t have any major qualms with her label.

She wrote: “It’s just a conversation I don’t know if I will be able to actually make it happen or not. I would still be happy with Island they are good people too… just feel it would be better for me as a business to have the control when I’m confident I can run it well alone. (sic)”

However, Iggy subsequently hinted at performing a U-turn on her plan.

She tweeted: “Just be prepared for lots of thinking aloud and ignore everything I say cause I change my mind every 48hours. (sic)”

Iggy is well-known for giving her followers a behind-the-scenes insight into her life through social media.

But the blonde beauty recently admitted that some aspects of being so candid can be “unfortunate”.

She said: “Twitter is unfortunate, social media is unfortunate because it freezes that in time for us. In some ways, that’s good. You can look back and self-reflect and say, ‘Geez, I’ve come a long way, that’s good.’ The silver lining is that you can look at that and be like, ‘Never again.’

“But I don’t really sit around thinking, ‘If only I could delete that one thing.’ You know, you’ve gotta move forward and have personal growth. I don’t really think much about that.” AZALEA: I WANT TO BECOME MY OWN BOSS

Iggy Azalea’s first North American tour in four years has been canceled. Shortly after tour-opener CupcakKe dropped out of Azalea’s upcoming Bad Girls Tour, the rapper shared that the whole thing was being called off.

Azalea told her fans on Twitter that the decision was made for her, after Live Nation shared news of the cancellation with Variety. She said that she hopes to be able to make the dates up at some unspecified future date.

“Believe me – I was really excited for this tour… and I’m genuinely disappointed it cant happen this year,” she wrote. The choice was out of my hands and not my call to make. I hope I will get to see you all in person one day.”

Azalea said that she was going to use the unexpected downtime to keep working on new music.

“All I can do is keep pushing, keep recording and keep a smile on my face,” she said.

CupcakKe shared details of what went wrong on her end, backing up Iggy’s story that the problems with the tour didn’t come from the New Classic rapper.

“Listen y’all, I went from getting paid 330k on this tour to 30k that’s what I mean by ‘change plans,'” she wrote on Twitter. “THIS WAS NOT IGGY THAT CHANGED PLANS! It was the ones that put it together! Iggy knows I love her. I just need that bag IN FULL…

Iggy Azalea says her search for a new “glam team” is giving her anxiety.

The 28-year-old rap star – who was born in Sydney, Australia – has recently made the switch from Los Angeles to Atlanta, and the move has meant she now needs to find herself a new hair and make-up team.

Iggy wrote on Twitter: “Having to find a new glam team now that I live in Atlanta is giving me anxiety.

Iam such a creature of habit… [crying emoji] (sic)”

The rap star – who has more than seven million followers on the micro-blogging platform – also recently took to Twitter to discuss one of her past relationships.

Iggy revealed she’d “finally” moved on from one of her ex-boyfriends, although she refused to name the person.

The ‘Fancy’ hitmaker – who has dated the likes of A$AP Rocky, basketball player Nick Young, and NFL star DeAndre Hopkins – wrote: “Isnt the day you think about someone again and finally dont miss them anymore or give a single f**k about them (but in the kindest way possible) just the best feeling ever. Its really is. wow.

“Its honestly such a nice feeling. (sic)”

Prior to that, Iggy admitted to experiencing “crazy anxiety” when people started speculating she was dating Jimmy Butler.

The rapper set tongues wagging when she was spotted looking cosy with the basketball player, but she subsequently rubbished the suggestion and revealed she feels an overwhelming sense of paranoia when her fans start commenting on her love life.

Taking to her Instagram Stories, the Australian star fumed: “Can we please stop saying every man who is single you see me standing next to is someone I’m on a date with? S**t is corny and super annoying! The whole thing gives me crazy anxiety & makes me feel like I can’t have normal in passing conversations with people because everything ends up being some “story” for the internet. (sic)”
