Iggy Azalea—she’s got 99 problems and now her latest magazine cover is one of ’em.
It seems like she just can’t catch a break—a couple of days ago, Iggy was going dig-for-dig on Twitter with Snoop Dogg after he mocked her makeup-free face. The two squashed their quarrel with the help of T.I., but yesterday, she took to the social media site once again, and this time, her beef was with Maxim Australia and her label.
The Australian artist covers the men’s magazine and is the leading lady of their “Hot 100” list, but it turns out that the image they used is an old one, one she says they used without her consent.
In a series of since-deleted tweets, Iggy expressed her frustration:
“Im going to publicly say something to the australian division of my record label right now because my message seems to be ignored privately.
Stop giving permission on my behalf for magazines to purchase images of me that have already been printed in major publications for covers.
Australian label, I love you guys but you allowed my image to be sold to cosmo Aus when I told you I would prefer for that not to happen.
And now this morning I see you’ve allowed maxim australia to buy an image from a 2011 complex mag shoot and put it on the cover.”
The publication responded, saying:
@IGGYAZALEA we couldn’t agree more! We begged both your US management and Aussie label for a cover shoot & interview but were denied.
