Halsey has hit out at Iggy Azalea, describing the rapper as a “f—ing moron.”

The 22-year-old, who is set to play Glastonbury‘s Other Stage, made the comments during an interview with The Guardian, claiming that she would never work with the Australian artist.

Her fiery comments came as she defended Migos rapper Quavo against accusations of homophobia that surfaced earlier this year.

She said: “I think he’s misunderstood. Just because I choose to be a socially conscious artist, and I’m pretty good at that, that doesn’t mean every artist is going to be equipped to be politically correct. I don’t think he’s inherently homophobic, I think he’s in a tough place of trying to explain what he means.”

She added: “I agree his apology was bulls—, but I can’t police everyone.”

She also clarified her comments on Twitter after the article was published.

She wrote: “Honestly? I didn’t know that Quavo had made homophobic comments when I collaborated him. We’ve never spoken a word to each other.”

In a series of follow up tweets, she added: “I have no intention of pursuing a friendship there, unless he wants to make a legitimate apology. I work tirelessly to represent & support marginalized communities I love & am a part of. I’m sorry if my actions have ever seemed otherwise.”
