“I REALLY WISH record labels would all agree to make it mandatory to hire at least ONE psychologist per label,” she wrote. “Almost EVERY artist in recent times has expressed struggling with the level of hate & pressure. Sports teams do it for their athletes, why not music labels?”

“Also yes it may seem like ‘but there’s so many labels!’ There’s actually only about 4 guys running the entire music business so it would be pretty easy to hold them accountable and make them implement a change across their businesses,” she added.

She listed Chief Executive Officer of Universal Music Group Lucian Grainge and CEO of Sony Music Entertainment Rob Stringer as examples of important figures in the music industry who could make a difference.

“Between these two guys that’s literally like 85% coverage across the labels,” Iggy said. “See what I’m saying? It’s not hard to actually do this.”

“Between these two guys that’s literally like 85% coverage across the labels. See what I’m saying? It’s not hard to actually do this. Why won’t they do it? But have like 20 deep teams of A&Rs that literally no one even wants in the studio,” she added.

Iggy opened up about entering a mental health retreat back in 2019.

Last week, the rapper announced that she would not longer be posting photos of her 15-month-old son Onyx due to hate comments.
