Iggy Azalea

It will take all of maybe two seconds for Iggy Azalea to put you in your place.

The Aussie rapper is known to speak her mind when she feels it's necessary, and it turns out that last night was one of those times when it was necessary.

Iggy began posting a series of tweets slamming who she called "internet kids" for bullying artists on social media. The outlash was sparked after numerous Nicki Minaj fans began to put down Azalea, who scored her first ever U.S. No.1 hit on the Billboard Hot 100 last week with "Fancy."

So this is what she had to say about all of that:

Comparisons between artists and fan wars happen on the daily, but even Minaj gave Iggy props on her success last week when she called in to Power 105.1's Breakfast Club—and she gave herself a shout-out, too.

"I think that congratulations is in order. Her single is doing really, really well and I think that's a good thing. One thing I'm not is a hater," Nicki said.

"If somebody is doing something and they did it well, and their song is charting well, then congratulations. I just want female rappers to understand that I've kicked in a lot of doors for them and I just would appreciate if they would acknowledge that."

She added, "If somebody has a song that's doing well, then I think that's a great thing. I think that's a great thing for women and we're gonna keep it moving."
