Rapper quits social media calling it, "negative and draining"

The 24-year-old pop star has announced, Thursday, February 19, that she will be taking a break from the communication platform.

Iggy Azalea (real name Amethyst Amelia Kelly) is kissing social media goodbye after series of negative comments came out about her on Twitter.

The 24-year-old pop star has announced, Thursday, February 19, that she will be taking a break from the communication platform because she finds it "negative and draining."

We suspect that Iggy has had enough of the online squabbles and spats from fans and even her fellow music colleagues in the last few months including Snoop Dogg, Eve, Jill Scott, Eminem, Nicki Minaj and Azealia Banks.

The 'Fancy' hit-maker told her fans on Twitter: "I want you to know I am taking some time away from social media. I need to be happy and it is too negative and draining."

The Australian rapper also wrote: "My management will tweet/run my accounts from today onwards etc except any message is signed … IA...Love You All. Peace out!"

The star was slammed by haters about her cellulite which was apparent in photos of her wearing a bikini that had emerged online few weeks back.

Another of her tweets read: "To become nasty because of the way I feel I am treated would be a disservice to my fans and I promise I will try to keep smiling."

She explained: "I feel the hatred and pettiness I see online at all times is making me become an angry person and I cannot be that."

The rapper just returned from a Valentine's Day trip in Hawaii with her boyfriend, Nick Young. But for some one who has to survive in the world of Hip Hop, do you think quitting social media is the best?
