AceShowbiz - Erykah Badu showed no love for Iggy Azalea while she hosted the 2015 Soul Train Awards. The iconic R&B superstar threw major shade at the Aussie native's rapping skills in front of the crowd during a monologue that kicked off the event, which was taped earlier this month and aired on Sunday night, November 29.
Fresh off releasing her phone-centric mixtape "But You Caint Use My Phone", Badu emerged on the stage pretending to be having a conversation with Azalea through a flip phone she's holding. "Who is this? Iggy Azalea? Yeah, hey... no, no, no, you can come [to Soul Train Awards], 'cause what you doin' is definitely not rap," she said before the camera showed the expressions on some audience members' faces. Some laughed and one attendee could be seen inaudibly swearing, "Holy s**t."
Viewers then immediately took to Twitter to respond to Badu's joke. A lot of them agreed that the singer was a bit harsh on Azalea, but it didn't mean they didn't enjoy the moment. One user shared a picture of Beyonce Knowles looking surprised and covering her mouth. "Erykah to Iggy: sure u can come to the #SoulTrainAwards cuz what you're doing is definitely NOT rap. Ouch. But true," read the caption.
Another user used a GIF of Azalea's rumored nemesis Nicki Minaj from her speech at last year's BET Awards. He wrote alongside the clip, "Erykah threw All shade towards Iggy. Nicki is somewhere like #SoulTrainAwards."
