The last time Iggy Azalea and Rita Ora collaborated, the world was forced to watch the stars (and their body doubles) do their best "Kill Bill" impressions in Azalea's "Black Widow" music video. The song's opening lyric -- “I’m going to love you / until you hate me” -- has now taken on a whole new meaning.
Ora, the former Jay Z protégé and sometimes sister to Christian Grey, recently invoked the most sacred of pop diva anthems "Lady Marmalade" in hopes of remaking the song with today's stars (no shade to Christina Aguilera). "Lady Marmalade" first debuted on pop airwaves in 1974, but was covered by Pink, Christina Aguilera, Mya, and Lil' Kim in the best performance you've ever seen at the 2001 MTV Movie Awards.
“It’s always been my goal to create another 'Lady Marmalade,'” Ora told The Sun, per NME. “I’m trying to round up the troops. I think it would be me, Miley [Cyrus], Charli XCX -- she’d be fun -- and Iggy [Azalea].”
Azalea, the world's No. 1 punching bag, might have learned something in her year of intense public scrutiny and agreed that some things are better left alone.
Charli XCX took to Twitter to voice her support for the project, but then later deleted her tweet.
No word yet on how Miley Cyrus feels.
