Now that Iggy Azalea has buried the hatchet with Snoop Dogg, she can turn her attention to another battle: complaining to her record label that they allowed an unapproved photo of her to be used on the cover of a magazine in her home country of Australia.
Iggy jumped on Twitter to take her complaints public, claiming that her private messages to the Australian division of her label were being ignored. “I’m going to publicly say something to the Australian division of my record label right now because my message seems to be ignored privately,” she wrote. “Stop giving permission on my behalf for magazines to purchase images of me that have already been printed in major publications for covers.”
At issue, according to E!, is Maxim Australia, which has put Iggy on its cover…but the photo is one that previously appeared on the cover of another magazine several years ago.
“Australian label, i love you guys but you allowed my image to be sold to Cosmo Aus[tralia] when i told you i would prefer for that not to happen. And now this morning i see you’ve allowed maxim australia to buy an image from a 2011 complex mag shoot and put it on the cover,” she continued.
The “Fancy” rapper wrote, “I think it’s awesome anyone would want me on the cover of a magazine, but there’s a right way to make that happen and the australian label clearly aren’t respecting my wishes. a magazine cover deserves an accompanying photoshoot not a reused image.”
“Maxim australia, thanks for the love and I’m sorry no one asked me,” she added. “i would have love to have given an interview & done a shoot with u guys.”
The magazine itself then got into the act, supporting Iggy in her assertions. “We couldn’t agree more! We begged both your US management and Aussie label for a cover shoot & interview but were denied,” they tweeted. “Furthermore, we’d LOVE to do a shoot with you. Just say when, where and how high and we’ll jump!”
