FYI Everyone, Please Leave Iggy Azalea Out of Rita Ora’s ‘Whole Lady Marmalade Conversation’
Furthermore, Azalea wants us all to know that she had nothing to do with Ora’s horrible idea to remake the hit song “Lady Marmalade” in the first place. Azalea aptly took to Twitter to clarify her position on the topic, firing some shots at Ora in the process:
Please leave me out of the whole Lady Marmalade conversation. I have nothing to do with ritas ideas & agree it should be left alone. Thanks

According to NME, Ora recently told The Sun, “It’s always been my goal to create another “Lady Marmalade”… I’m trying to round up the troops. I think it would be me, Miley [Cyrus], Charli XCX — she’d be fun — and Iggy [Azalea].”
Azalea and Ora previously collaborated on “Black Widow” together on Azalea’s The New Classic.
“Lady Marmalade” was first recorded by Labelle in 1975, and has been covered several times thereafter. It was flawlessly rerecorded by power-quartet Christina Aguilera, Lil’ Kim, Mýa, and Pink in 2001 for the Moulin Rouge! soundtrack.
Don’t fix it if it ain’t broke, right?
