Iggy Azalea talks tour cancellation

Iggy Azalea decided to call off her The Great Escape Tour because she “needs a break”.

The concert series was meant to commence this fall, but last week it was revealed the shows were called off.

And the 24-year-old Work hitmaker has opened up to Seventeen magazine about why she chose to cancel the tour.

“I've had a different creative change of heart,” she told the publication. “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.”

Iggy went on the explain she is also simply exhausted after working non-stop for several years in a row.

The Australian songstress would like some time to psychologically process her extraordinary success.

“On top of that, mentally, to be honest with you, I just feel I deserve a break. I've been going non-stop for the past two years, nearly every single day,” the Fancy star detailed, before assuring fans she is not suffering from a nervous collapse of any sort. “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.

“It's very emotionally draining to be on all the time and going all the time, planning all the time. It's a lot, and it's tough. I need a break from everything to just enjoy what I worked so hard for, and I don't really feel like I've had a chance to do that. I need a break to figure out what I want my sound to progress to, and I need a break to figure out how I want my visuals to progress.”
