Dear Fellow Barbz,

Today i've got some great news and bad news but i'll let you read on before hand.

“Super Bass” rapper Minaj was accused of starting a war with Azalea — whose “Fancy” has become the hit of summer — at the BET Awards last month by criticizing her younger rival for using a ghostwriter.

Minaj, 31, denied the dig was aimed at the 24-year-old star from Down Under. But Azalea’s man tells [email protected] he’s not so sure he believes her.

“Iggy is doing big things and that is what is scaring people,” Lakers star Nick Young said on Tuesday at the Body at ESPYs party celebrating ESPN Magazine’s sixth annual Body Issue. “She is going to brush it off. She won’t let it get to her. She is number one — what can you do? She’s at the top right now, so of course they are going to come at you.”

It looks like Iggy hasn't let it go, Minaj has no reason to lie to Azalea but she has chosen to believe not.In her acceptance speech for Best Female Hip Hop Artist at the June 29 ceremony, Trinidadian star Minaj said: “What I want the world to know about Nicki Minaj is when you hear Nicki Minaj spit, Nicki Minaj wrote it.”

The remark was widely assumed to be a dig at Azalea, but the former “X Factor” judge dismissed that idea, tweeting that “The media puts words in my mouth all the time and this is no different,” adding that she had “congratulated Iggy on the success of Fancy, publicly.”

Whether Minaj meant it as a slight or not, the fallout from the episode was very real. At
the time, Azalea said she was “unbothered by anything that ‘happened’ at the BET awards.” But Young says that’s not quite the whole story.

The relationship has meant some stress for Young — when the two are going out for a night on the town.

“It takes four or five hours for her to get ready,” he told us. “I get on the computer and watch TV. For women, it takes them forever. They got to do a lot — hair, make up, earrings, and they go through four or five outfits.”

Well, you don’t get to be that fancy without putting a little work in.

What do you think about this?

    I think this whole thing is improbable and the media is concocting this story about both my favorites, Nicki and Iggy. I don't want them to fight.
