“This is gonna be long….so only bother reading if you love me. (If you still bother anyway, you’re a weirdo who has been warned,” she started. “I’ve always been someone who finds my joy in being creative and seeing my ideas come to life.

For a long time, I used music to deliver my big, crazy ideas to the world. I know a lot of people have this idea that I was ‘bullied away from music’ and that’s something I’ve always laughed at because I’d never be bullied out of anything! In fact, I’m too stubborn.”

Iggy continued, suggesting she might switch careers: “I think I’ve even resisted changes within myself at times, purely because I don’t like being viewed as someone who quits,” she added. “In truth, what I’ve known for a long time is that I feel more passionately about design and creative direction than I do about songwriting.

To many of you, that’s no shock to read. It shows in my work. Haha! Jokes aside, I do spend a lot more time on that part of things… because I’m most confident at that.”

She added, “That’s why I want to let you know that I’m not going to finish my album.

It’s been paused for a few months while I was giving direction for a different project, and in truth, I just haven’t felt the urge to go back to it.

I feel really happy and passionate in my day-to-day life when my mind focuses on that and so I want to stick to what’s undeniably best for me.

Can’t wait to start sharing some of the things I’ve been involved in creating and hoping you’ll see my quirk and humor in anything I touch.”

She concluded: “I know for some fans, this probably makes you feel a little deflated – I’m sorry to let you down. But it’s more important that I don’t let myself down. I hope you’ll understand. Talk soon! I Love you.”

What is next on the horizon for Iggy Azalea?

The appropriately named LP, The End of an Era, was Iggy Azalea’s most recent album, which was released over three years ago.

Since then, she has kept performing and releasing tracks, but in January 2023, she opened an OnlyFans account, which she said would showcase her more artistic side.

“SURPRISE! I’m dropping a mixed media project called ‘Hotter Than Hell,”‘ she wrote. “There’s photographs, visual art collabs, videos, merch and all kinds of aesthetically pleasing, hot as hell things happening this year. You can get first-look content + updates on my new OnlyFans account.”

There were rumors in November 2023 that she had earned $50 million on the platform.
