Perez Hilton defends Iggy Azalea from K. Michelle criticism

Iggy Azalea is one of the hottest rappers in the game right now and that opens her up for a lot of criticism. Insert K. Michelle who is known for sharing her opinions no matter how obnoxious or unwanted they may be. The former "Love & Hip Hop Atlanta" star blasted the Aussie rap star for sounding "too American." That's when gossip blogger Perez Hilton inserted himself in the conversation and defended Iggy against K. Michelle's unwarranted critique according to a Wednedsay report from Bossip.

Iggy Azalea has been blowing up the charts with her single "Fancy." Iggy's hit peaked at number two on the Billboard Music Charts and has been making the list for the past eleven weeks. The song is absolutely everywhere including a Billboard Music Awards performance, another performance during the finals of "Dancing With The Stars" and a viral video from a radio DJ and his daughter featuring the song.

Everybody wants to be fancy right now and apparently K. Michelle doesn't approve. She made some comments on Twitter about Iggy Azalea's origin and says she sounds like a rapper from Memphis. The tweet that set everything off said, "How can you be from another country and rap like you're from Memphis TN? But u don't hear me though #offended" What we want to know though is who is offended? That's a pretty offensive tweet and she probably wouldn't appreciate someone talking about how her music offends them. What gives her the right to even be offended?

In any case, Perez Hilton popped in and gave K. Michelle a dose of her own medicine. He quickly pointed out that she obviously meant to use the hashtag #jealous instead of #offended. To which she told Perez, also via Twitter, "Stay in your place Cinderella." That's when Perez shot back, "@kmichelle I'm happy to stay in my own little corner. And you get back to me when you have a #2 song on the @Billboard Hot 100. #YouNotFancy" That should have been enough to shut K. Michelle up but of course she had more to say. Basically that she was never going to get back to Perez Hilton. Apparently the truth hurts but Perez is right, Azalea is a hit maker and she is hot right now. K. Michelle is a washed up reality TV star who wishes she could have that kind of fame.
