Iggy Azalea Slams Raiders Reporters For Allegedly Criticizing Halftime Performance
Australian rapper, singer, songwriter, model and television personality Iggy Azalea clapped back at a reporter who was less than impressed with her recent performance during halftime of the Las Vegas Raiders’ recent home game.
Fans attending this Sunday’s Las Vegas Raiders game versus Houston at Allegiant Stadium are reminded to note that kickoff is at 1:05 p.m.
A special pregame performance in recognition of “Crucial Catch: Intercept Cancer,” the league-wide initiative to fight cancer through early detection and risk reduction, is set for Sunday that will feature Emmy award-winning, multi-platinum selling recording artist and author Rachel Platten. Rachel broke through with her uplifting pop hit, “Fight Song.” The multi-platinum selling single topped countless music charts around the globe and has become an anthem for those battling cancer worldwide.

The National Anthem will be performed by JoJo, the award-winning singer-songwriter and actress who, at just 31 years old, is already a veteran of the industry. At age 13, JoJo burst onto the music scene with her self-titled debut album “JoJo,” a certified Platinum record featuring the single “Leave (Get Out),” which made her the youngest-ever solo artist to have a debut No. 1 single in the U.S. She followed that with a string of additional hits, including the Top 3 single “Too Little, Too Late.” Her 2020 album, “good to know,” debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard R&B chart, and her song “Say So” with PJ Morton won the Grammy for Best R&B Song, per Raiders.
On Sunday (Oct. 23), the Las Vegas Raiders took on the Houston Texans at Allegiant Stadium in Sin City. Iggy Azalea served as halftime show entertainment, giving the crowd a performance of her 2019 song “Sally Walker.” Reporter, Tashan Reed, who covers the Raiders for The Athletic, expressed his disappointment in Iggy’s showing on Twitter.
“The combination of Allegiant Stadium trying to make BBQ and Iggy Azalea performing at halftime is gonna make me depressed,” Reed posted.
Iggy Azalea caught wind of the post several hours later and responded to the critique.
“If you think you’re depressed now I’ll spare you the tears you’d cry knowing what my paycheck was to come and jiggle a lil ass,” the Aussie rhymer replied to Reed’s post.
Iggy later apologized to Reed for her comment via a dog meme. Apparently, Iggy’s fans had something to say to Reed. On Monday morning (Oct. 24), he shared video of himself on Twitter walking into the gym while an Iggy Azalea song played over the speakers.
“The @IGGYAZALEA stans took over my timeline & gym’s playlist that’s crazy,” Reed captioned the clip.
In a follow-up tweet, he noted his song of the day was “Magnolia,” the hit single from Iggy’s ex, Playboi Carti.
Iggy Azalea, who is currently rumored to be dating Tory Lanez, is no stranger to reacting to unfavorable comments. Over the summer, she shot back at people who had disparaging comments about her body following a show, according XXL Mag.
“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 replied to the mean comments.
Following a recent performance in Las Vegas at Allegiant Stadium, Iggy found herself clapping back at a Raiders reporter. The Raiders played against the Houston Texans and won 38-20.
