Iggy Azalea: 'Lorde was the wrong choice for Cobain Hall of Fame tribute'

6/18/2014

Rapper Iggy Azalea has taken aim at Nirvana stars Dave Grohl and Krist Novoselic's decision to hit the stage with Lorde at their Rock & Roll Hall of Fame induction concert, insisting the Kurt Cobain tribute was inappropriate. The Fancy hitmaker has no problems with Joan Jett and Kim Gordon appearing with the surviving Nirvana bandmates, but she has taken issue with Lorde and St. Vincent, who also performed at the New York gala in April (14). The outspoken rapper tells Billboard magazine, "Nothing against her (Lorde), but I think when you're doing a tribute to someone that's dead, generally it should be the person's peer. Lorde is not Kurt Cobain's peer. No matter if she killed the performance or not, I just don't think it's appropriate." Meanwhile, in a new Rolling Stone interview, Grohl admits he regrets not spending more time with Lorde at the Hall of Fame ceremony. He says, "I barely got to say two words to her. She flew from God knows where, and we rehearsed the song (All Apologies) once. Then we walked onstage and did it."
