Iggy Azalea Runs Far Away From Rita Ora’s ‘Lady Marmalade’ Remake

“I have nothing to do with [Rita’s] ideas and agree it should be left alone.”

Say what you want about Iggy Azalea, but you have to agree with her on this one: no one wants Rita Ora’s 2015 version of “Lady Marmalade.”

The idea came to life when the British singer told The Sun she had her sights set on remaking the 1975 hit song from Labelle. Mya, Pink, Lil Kim and Christina Aguilera breathed new life into the song with their 2001 cover, which apparently inspired Ora.

“It’s always been my goal to create another ‘Lady Marmalade,” she told The Sun. “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].”


Ora should have consulted with her “troops” before going on record with her desire to cover the song. Not only was she ripped on social media for the suggestion, but Iggy herself said she wanted no parts of the remake.

“Please leave me out of the whole Lady Marmalade conversation. I have nothing to do with ritas ideas & agree it should be left alone. Thanks,” she tweeted Monday.

Ora has yet to respond.

How about we just stick with the classics?
