Iggy Azalea Doesn't Think Lorde Was 'Appropriate' Choice for Nirvana Reunion
Lorde-fronted Nirvana has been recently criticized by Iggy AzaelaConsequence of Sound reports.

While Dave Grohl later explained that Lorde represented the "Nirvana aesthetic", the "Fancy" emcee told Billboard that Lorde wasn't the "appropriate" choice of singers for the momentous occasion.

"Nothing against her, but I think when you're doing a tribute to someone that's dead, generally it should be the person's peer," Azalea said. "Lorde is not Kurt Cobain's peer. No matter if she killed the performance or not, I just don't think it's appropriate."

Earlier this month, Azaela made history when "Fancy" and "Problem," her collaboration with Ariana Grande, reached No. 1 and 2, respectively, on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

"It doesn't mean anything," she said. "I'd rather be The Rolling Stones."

Do you think Dave Grohl & Co. should've invited anyone else instead of Lorde?
