Iggy Azalea Explains Her 'Great Escape' Tour Cancellation

In case you’ve missed it, Australian rapper Iggy Azalea put the kibosh on her “Great Escape” tour just so that she could start anew. Interesting….

She shared an apology on Twitter for the tour’s cancellation, but until now hasn’t actually explained what was going on.

The “Fancy” rapper told Seventeen magazine that she’s had a “different creative change of heart” and wants to “start totally anew.” The tour was originally slated to kick off this spring. In March, Azalea’s label, Def Jam, announced that it would be pushed back to September. While the entire tour has now been canceled, Azalea is still performing in a select few cities.

Azalea told Seventeen that going through with the tour would’ve held her back from improving her sound and visuals. “I am a musician and a creative person and I want to be able to perform new stuff and do new things,” she said. “I feel like I’m at the end of an era now.”

But Azalea also said she wants a break for herself. “On top of that, mentally,” she told the magazine, “I just feel I deserve a break. I’ve been going non-stop for the past two years, nearly every single day.” She assured fans that she’s not sad or in a bad place, though.

The “Pretty Girls” rapper also apologized to her fans again, saying that canceling the tour isn’t a sign of her failing or giving up. “It was a tough decision to make, but it was the best thing,” she said.
