Iggy Azalea’s “Black Widow” single is doing just fine on the Billboard Charts so the Aussie rapper declined to promote it with a MTV VMA publicity stunt.
According to Britain’s The Sun, “Black Widow” co-star Rita Ora suggested to Iggy that they reenact the headline-grabbing kiss between Madonna, Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera during the 2003 MTV VMA’S. “”I said to Iggy we should just make out on stage, kiss during our performance,” Ora said. “She told me that would be crazy because it’s already been done. Britney Spears and Madonna kissing was my favorite VMA performance ever.”
Which, she was absolutely right. Nobody likes a copycat. Rita also admitted that she was simply happy to perform the Billboard smash in the first place, after Iggy could have been seriously injured after she fell during rehearsals.
“Bless her. I was just happy she was OK because, God forbid, we couldn’t perform after all that. Can you imagine?,” the British pop star pondered.
On second thought, a kiss between the two may have been welcomed with open eyes. Take a look at what they were wearing on the red carpet during Sunday’s awards in the picture gallery below.
