Halsey Wants You To Know Iggy Azalea Copied Her, Not The Other Way Around

Halsey denies her “Alone” music video looks like Iggy Azalea’s “Savior” clip.

Halsey denies her “Alone” music video looks like Iggy Azalea’s “Savior” clip.

The pop star has publicly dragged the Australian rapper several times now, and it’s not a good look. Last year, Halsey called Iggy a “f–king moron” for having a “complete disregard for black culture” and said she “watched [Iggy’s] career dissolve and it fascinated me.” Read more about that here.

Iggy responded by pulling a Mariah Carey, saying she didn’t know her.

There’s clearly tension between the two ladies, and things took a turn for the worse today (April 2) when Halsey took offense to someone saying her upcoming music video for “Alone” looks like Iggy’s “Savior” clip.

In a now-deleted Tweet, Halsey said “I’ve been using the R&J visuals since April of 2017. NAHHHHH,” she wrote. R&J stands for Romeo & Juliet.

“My record concept and all my videos have referenced Baz Luhrmann’s Romeo and Juliet, neon crosses and church motifs included, since April 2017 ??‍♀️ and I did so with permission from Baz himself.” Halsey is referring to Baz Luhrmann, the director of the 1996 film William Shakespeare’s Romeo + Juliet and Mouline Rouge!.

Halsey also Tweeted then deleted: “How can u rip off someone who ripped u off?”

It’s unclear why Halsey turns up at any mention of Iggy, but making a mention like this will only inspire Twitter trolls to stir things up more. See y’all at the inevitable Iggy response post later today.
