Live and let live...and allow Iggy Azalea to eat her cheese sticks in peace!
The 24-year-old Aussie rapper famously feuded with Papa John's Pizza earlier this month after a delivery boy gave out her phone number. Iggy complained to his supervisor, who assured her the alleged privacy violation would be taken care of. Per Iggy's heated Twitter rant, the issue was not immediately resolved, although she ultimately received a formal apology from the corporate level and reassurance from the national chain that "appropriate disciplinary action" was being taken.
On Tuesday, Iggy told KIIS FM's On-Air With Ryan Seacrest the latest on this cheesy battle. "It's all good," she reassured listeners. "It's over! I'm not, like, trying to sue anyone over pizza!"
Truth be told, Iggy didn't want this to become a thing at all. She orders Papa John's pizza "all the time," she said, noting that their delivery guys "are really cool and do a really good job." But when a new fella popped by with the pizza, took an intense interest in her Ferrari and then freaked out upon realizing she was Iggy Azalea, the rapper "was a little concerned," she said, "but I didn't complain."
"I didn't want to be rude to the boy, he was a young guy," she went on. It wasn't until the next day that she started to get multiple calls and text messages from a number she didn't know. "So I started to read the text messages...'Is this Iggy Azalea? My brother delivered a pizza to you two days ago and he gave me your number...' And he gave his cousin my number, too, and she wanted to talk and everyone wanted to talk....it was very sweet, but it's really not cool."
It was only at this point that Iggy called their supervisor and "really nicely" explained the situation. After assuring her the delivery boy would be placed "on permanent leave" and offering up free pizza (which she refused), Iggy thought the issue was in the past.
"I'll pay for the pizza," she said. "I just don't want that guy to give me the pizza ever again!"
According to Iggy, though, the supervisor remedied the situation by getting in touch with the delivery boy's mom and sending her screengrabs of the texts, which "wasn't sufficient to me," she said. "That's kind of a serious thing!"
Cue the angry tweets! At this point, Papa John's Pizza's senior vice president "called me up," said Iggy, "and was like, 'Do you want free pizza?' And I was like, 'Everyone's trying to give me free pizza and I don't want free pizza! This isn't about free pizza! I'm totally cool...' I just wanna know that you're taking this seriously!"
Rest assured, everyone: Papa John's gave this matter the attention it deserved, telling E! News in a statement: "Privacy of our customers and employees is extremely important to us...We are reaching out directly to Ms. Azalea and hope to resolve this incident and make it right."
Ryan asked Iggy if Papa John's had asked her "to do a Super Bowl commercial" now that things are OK again. "Because I feel like that's the end of all things," he said.
"I've been talking to Pizza Hut—heyyy!" she joked. "I'm a VIP member now. so they've sorted me out, so we'll see."
