The 24-year-old rapper recently confessed that she didn't want to win the prestigious award because she does "not need to be hated anymore."
Winning a Grammy is arguably the biggest prize for anyone in the music industry, but for Iggy Azalea, she is perfectly happy not receiving the prestigious award because she doesn't want to give the fans another reason to hate her.
Azalea was happy she didn't win the Grammy for Best Rap Album
During a new interview with Los Angeles' Power 106 radio station, the Aussi rapper confessed she was relieved that Eminem beat her to win Best Rap Album at last month's 57th Annual Grammy Awards.
"I did not want to win that award," she said about losing in the major category, which she was nominated for her debut studio album 'The New Classic'.
Azalea even admitted she didn't even bother to write an acceptance speech, she said, "I never thought I'd be nominated ever... My speech would've been like, 'F**k this I don't want it! Take it! Get it away from me.'"
"I'm really happy that I was thought of and I appreciate just that," she added. "I'm glad I didn't win because people already hate me enough... I do not need to be hated anymore."
As well as Best Rap Album, the 24-year-old recording artist was also nominated for Record of the Year for 'Fancy,' Best New Artist, and Best Pop Duo/Group Performance for 'Fancy' with Charli XCX. Even though she wasn't victorious in any category, Azalea said the online haters continued after the Grammys.
"Even when I lost, that was the worst too," she explained. "I was like, 'God damn, are you ever going to leave me alone? I lost, you should be happy! S**t, bye! Let me lose in peace.'"
Only weeks after the Grammys took place, Azalea decided to retire from social media for good, and handed over all her social media accounts to her management team.
