Iggy Azalea is opening up about her decision to publicly speak out in support of Britney Spears amid her ongoing conservatorship battle.

If you forgot, Iggy and Britney collaborated back in 2015 on the single “Pretty Girls.”

After Britney spoke out in court about conversatorship battle with her dad Jamie Spears, Iggy came under fire for not immediately speaking out in support of Britney.

Iggy then released a message of support for Britney, saying that the conservatorship should be “illegal,” while also sharing details about working with Jamie.

“It’s not about her dad. It’s about Britney,” Iggy said in an interview with ET. “I don’t feel an allegiance to Britney Spears’ father. I grew up watching her and I idolized her and I still do, and she’s a really kind, lovely person. Beyond the fact that we collaborated together, she put her faith in me to produce that music video for her and develop the cover art and all these other things.”

Iggy continued, “She’s the only artist that ever really gave me the opportunity. I get a lot of compliments from artists saying, ‘Oh, I love your stuff so much,’ but none of them ever tried to hire me and let me have reign on that kind of thing. She did, and she’s a superstar.”

“I love her so much, and I just want what everybody wants of her — just for her to be happy,” Iggy added. “Hearing her speak out and share her unhappiness, I just felt that me having firsthand perspective about what was going on and stuff, I wanted to just say my peace, that I support her and I think she deserves that.”

If you missed it, Iggy Azalea recently announced she’s taking a break from music. Here’s why.
