THIS IS ONE OF THE MOST SPECIAL, MEANINGFUL THINGS IN THE WORLD. My album went platinum, Havana is now 7 times platinum, and Never Be The Same has gone two times platinum!!!!!!!!! Numbers and awards don’t  drive me, but it is really special that this many people wanted to listen to my music- I used to get up at 7 am when I was 16 and write songs to other people’s instrumentals in my garage band. I carried them around for years thinking no one would hear original songs from me for 10 years LOL, but then came time to write my first album in a real studio-  it was one of the most special, intoxicating, consuming experiences of my life - I poured every part of myself into it and it really feels like every song is my baby.  When any of you say something about real friends or in the dark, or any of the deep cuts,and tell me what they mean to you or that you relate- it means more to me than anything else. Because to someone’s song means you like the song (and that is also insanely special) but listening to an album means you are willing to take the time to travel into their world, into their mind, and into their vulnerability. I’m lucky that songs like Havana and Never Be The Same are ones that are so personal to me that they also feel like secrets or fun parts of me that you guys sing along to, but you willing to take the time to listen to the whole album- means more to me than you know. @Frankdukes thanks for being the most talented, driven, passionate producer ever and doing this with me and being a big brother to me, thank you to all of our incredible collaborators!!!!! And to you guys, thank you for giving me your time, for listening, for caring- I can’t wait to show you the next chapter soon- it’s already the most special thing I’ve ever worked on and I am already peeing myself (!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

    Bhad Bhabie Throws A Drink At Iggy Azalea During Cardi B’s FashionNova Party; Both Share Their Side After The Altercation - Blogged By:  @carmen.roxanna (video  @tmz_tv) (swipe)⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Danielle Bregoli a.k.a  #BhadBhabie apparently has beef with Iggy Azalea, and she decided to let it be known during Cardi B’s  #FashionNova party. In an attempt to show how “bhad” she is, Bregoli threw a cup of what she says was water, at  #IggyAzalea. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In a video obtained by #TMZ, Bhad Bhabie is standing quite a distance away from Iggy, who was standing still and totally oblivious to the action. Bregoli then throws a drink as security holds her back. The drink doesn’t hit Iggy directly, but it did hit a couple of nearby patrons, one of which tried to fight someone in Bregoli’s entourage for the drink hitting her as well. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Even after the drink was thrown, Iggy remained calm and stood there trying to make sense of what happened as Bhad Bhabie was escorted out of the venue. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Shortly after the altercation, both ladies took to social media to air it all out. Iggy made an IG video saying that she was there to get a bag and that was that.  Bhad Bhabie responded on IG as well, saying, “Bye broke bich, Bye h*e.” Then followed up with, “Glad u left wit a bag cuz u certainly ain’t making no money from music anymore.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Iggy then tweeted, “Imagine me scrambling around on the floor in a dirty nightclub trying to hit a teenage girl. Girl. NO. I’m grown and will simply have you REMOVED and continue enjoying myself. ?  #YouNotSpecial Anything else from her mouth is ignored - it’s too preschool for me.” Followed by another tweet that read, “Anyway I’ll let y’all know about the 2.7 million dollar distribution deal I came back to LA to sign later this week. I have big girl things to do - Gotta go!” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ According to TMZ, Bregoli says Iggy  was “talking sh*t” about her on Instagram and “b*tch if you’re finna say something then b*tch something gonna happen to you.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
