2016: The year of the celebrity breakup.


Australia rapper calls off her engagement to basketballer Nick Young.

Iggy Azalea hasn’t had the greatest year and a half. After suffering a career backlash due to her controversial image, which many considered racially insensitive, Iggy hasn’t been able to recreate the chart success she saw in 2013 and 2014.

She released a single called Team earlier this year, but didn’t make much chart movement, with the song peaking at #42 on the Billboard 100.

In between career woes, Azalea was said to be having issues with her fiance Nick Young. Together since 2013, the couple hit rocky waters when a video leaked showing Young stating he had previously cheated on Iggy.

She famously said during a radio appearance that she had threatened to cut Nick’s ***** off if he strayed again, stating ” I already said one more video, just one more thing and you will lose a quarter of your meat.” Yikes.

She then told The Bert Show in April that she was “figuring it out”, and now it seems the 26-year-old has come to a conclusion:

Iggy and Nick’s split is yet another recent music breakup, including Taylor Swift/Calvin Harris and Demi Lovato/Wilmer Valderrama.

Will 2017 be the year of the breakup anthems?
