Iggy Azalea Performs On NBC's 'Today'

Miley, where you at?

Not only does Macklemore’s polarizing new single “White Privilege II” have Black people giving him the side-eye, but some White folks are shading the Seattle rapper as well.

In the wee hours of the morning, Macklemore released a conscious song in which he acknowledged the existence of White privilege, cultural appropriation, and the #BlackLivesMatter movement. Somewhere within the nine minutes of White guilt, Macklemore called out Miley Cyrus and Iggy Azalea for co-opting blackness.

“You’ve exploited and stolen the music, the moment/ The magic, the passion, the fashion you toy with/ The culture was never yours to make better/ You’re Miley, you’re Elvis, you’re Iggy Azalea,” he rapped.

A fan brought the song to Iggy’s attention, and after listening to it, she tweeted:

Welp, Macklemore can count out a photo-op with Iggy at the Grammys this year, that’s for sure.
