Iggy Azalea

Iggy Azalea wants her fans to know exactly why she made the "tough decision" to postpone her tour.

During an interview with AMP Radio's Michelle & Booker, the "Fancy" rapper opened up about why her fans will have to wait a bit longer to see her onstage.

"It is my first arena tour, so it's a big undertaking and I'm doing a lot of the creative direction, which I do for everything...So it's tough when it's your first time working on an arena situation," she shared on the morning show.

"When you're building a stage and things like that, you do it about six months in advance.  My tour would have been April; we have not started building—that is not six months, that is very tight. So to get this stage done in time, I would be making a lot of sacrifices and cuts and changes and compromises would have had to be made to get this thing done in time."

The Aussie native continued, "I don't want to have an average tour with a normal stage and this kind of thing. I want people to come and really feel they got their money's worth...and they want to come back and tell their friends about it. So that's the risk that I took and I hope people can still come."

Azalea also dished on letting her management team take over all of her social media platforms, saying, "For me at the moment, I'm recording my album, I'm doing this tour.  I want to make sure I'm in a good head space to where I'm not thinking about other people's opinions or what's going on in this in this other cyber-like world.  

"I really want to be focused on what I'm doing and I felt like that was getting to a point where it was taking away my focus or taking away my positive energy—sucking it into this negative space that I don't want to be in."
