Erykah Badu hosted the BET Soul Train Music Awards last night — and opted to throw some shade at a certain singer from Aussie Land.
The 44-year-old artist took a hard shot at Iggy Azalea during her opening monologue. After asserting that she wasn’t going to let any rappers get involved with the night’s proceedings, Badu feigned a phone call from the “Fancy” singer, telling her she was welcome to attend the Soul Train Awards because her music is “definitely not rap.”
While the live audience and fans at home may have guffawed over the slight, the Twitterverse went wild with responses both loving and hating on the crack.

One critic called out Badu for hating on another female star. “Life would be wonderful if women celebrated each other instead of emulating garbage like [Erykah Badu] You have my support @IGGYAZALEA.”
Badu retweeted the post with two words: “Kill joy.” Welp.
Kill joy. https://t.co/V72i1zi0Xy
