I'm relieved at not bagging Grammy award: Iggy Azalea

Los Angeles: Australian rapper Iggy Azalea is happy that she did not win a single Grammy despite four nominations because she feels people would have hated her more had she won any award.

The 'Fancy' hitmaker has often been accused of cultural appropriation. "I did not want to win that award. My speech would have been like, 'F**k this. I don't want it, take it. Get it away from me,'. People already hate me enough. I do not need to be hated any more," she said in a new interview on Power 106's 'The Cruz Show'.

Azalea, 24, also questioned why people were fine with fellow white MC Eminem winning the Best Rap Album award at the ceremony held in early February.

"I found it to be kind of ironic. It was because I'm white, therefore I'm appropriating culture, but then Eminem won it - who's white and won it many times - and they didn't seem to say anything about that. I suspect it was just because they dislike me," she said.
