Iggy Azalea, the Australian rapper who rose to fame with her hit single “Fancy” in 2014, has revealed that she is leaving the music industry to focus on other creative endeavors.

The 33-year-old star shared the news with her fans on Wednesday (January 3) on X, the social media platform formerly known as Twitter. She said that she had a bigger business venture that she wanted to invest in, and that she felt more passionate about design and creative direction than songwriting.

She also said that she had been feeling unhappy and unfulfilled with her music career for a long time, and that she wanted to do something that made her feel alive and excited. She thanked her fans for their support and love, and assured them that she would still be active on social media and share her new projects with them.

She also hinted that she might return to music in the future, but only if she felt inspired and motivated. She said that she did not want to force herself to make music that she did not enjoy, and that she wanted to be true to herself and her vision.

She concluded her message by saying that she was proud of her achievements and grateful for her opportunities, and that she hoped her fans would understand and respect her decision. She said that she was looking forward to starting a new chapter in her life and exploring her creativity.
