Iggy Azalea was not having it when the New York Post decided to include her on a list of recording artists Nicki Minaj has allegedly feuded with.

The publication listed Azalea and four other female artists that have previously had issues with the Pinkprint rapper. But the Australian rapper reminded the Post that she was not one of them.

“Why am I on this?” Azalea asked on Twitter. “We’ve never said anything bad about one another. Y’all weird.”

The Post‘s article claimed Azalea had insulted Minaj after the latter’s 2010 BET Awards performance, and that the Young Money superstar cryptically responded to Azalea while accepting a BET Award four years later.

Azalea also responded to a viral clip that surfaced of her choosing Cardi B over Nicki Minaj in a quick interview with Power 106, with the person who shared the tweet implying Azalea has long been on the Nicki Minaj “hate train.”

“I can like whatever music i want lmaoooooooooo. A song is a song,” she wrote on Twitter. “I’m not part of y’all weirdo lol wars.”

The “Fancy” rapper penned her tweets moments before Minaj was set to be honored as MTV’s Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award recipient at the 2022 VMA’s. While accepting the award on Sunday, Minaj shouted out a plethora of pop icons that have influenced her creative vision. The “Anaconda” rapper gave flowers to Lil Wayne, Lauryn Hill, Foxy Brown, Slick Rick and Doug E. Fresh, as well as other artists who’ve supported her, such as Beyoncé, Kanye West, Drake, Eminem, Rihanna and Britney Spears.

Elsewhere in the evening, Minaj performed a jam-packed medley of a few of her biggest hits, including “Moment 4 Life” and “Beez In The Trap,” before closing out with her latest Billboard chart-topper “Super Freaky Girl,” which Azalea had commended as a “well-written” single earlier in August.

“Super Freaky Girl is a really well-written song,” she wrote on Twitter. “Like, it’s constructed to be a hit and it’s BIG sounding.”

The “Black Widow” rapper has been clapping back at all sorts of Twitter trolls this summer. In July, she responded to people who were critical of her twerking skills while she performed at the 2022 Long Beach Pride festival in California.

“It’s a good thing I genuinely feel happy about myself & my body cause y’all stay in every comment section talking the most shit about me & it’s very mean spirited & ugly,” she wrote. “Ps. your man 100% wants to fuck me.”
