“This is the way the world ends: Not with a bang but a whimper.” Many thanks to T.S. Eliot for stating it so perfectly. And if only Iggy Azalea could flow like that master, she wouldn’t have to worry about popularity in order to keep making music. This girl did a number on herself in 2015, but if you look back, she was destined to be consumed by her own aimless ambition from day one. Here’s an education for young, aspiring artists — please pay close attention. Eight ways Iggy Azalea ruined her own career.
8. Using Feuds For Fame
Iggy Azalea set herself up for failure by building a foundation on a feud. After Iggy came to the United States from Australia, she settled in Miami, looking to make a name for herself in the music industry. She was able to play some small-to-large clubs in the American South and had enough in her pockets at the time to leave some resonant sounds in audience ears. But then she took to Twitter, and started beefing with well-known names in the industry, most notably, Nicki Minaj. This such hubris suggests one thing: idiocy. To a certain extent, there’s no such thing as bad publicity, there is only publicity; however, it’s all in moderation. When you’re driving the press with negativity, you can only use it as shtick for so long before it will eventually consume you. People will get tired of your act quickly… unless you’re on a reality show.
