Iggy Azalea first postponed her Great Escape tour, and then she officially canceled it, but without an explanation. Now the newly engaged star tells Seventeen magazine why she made the tough decision to call the whole thing off, despite her incredible success so far.
Although there are several reasons why the "Fancy" singer decided to call it quits on her tour, it all came down to a having different ideas. "I've had a different creative change of heart," she says. "I want to start totally anew, and if I stayed on my tour, that would mean I wouldn't even be able to start working on that until after Christmas."
And with no end in sight, Iggy decided that it was time to take a little bit of a rest. "On top of that, mentally, to be honest with you, I just feel I deserve a break," she explains. "I've been going non-stop for the past two years, nearly every single day. I'm not in a bad place. I think sometimes when you say you need a mental break, people are like, 'A mental break? Be sure you don't have a breakdown because you're sad.' No, not necessarily."
