Iggy Azalea Felt Like She Had a “Psychotic Breakdown” Last Year


The 25-year-old candidly says that she thinks she had a “psychotic breakdown” because of how much pressure she was under. She says it got to her:

“I had to have a psychotic breakdown last year, I felt tired and stressed out.”

She adds that she needed a mental break from the spotlight because she had been living non-stop for two whole years and was at her breaking point. She explained that it ended up draining her of everything:

“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… (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.”

Iggy explains that she felt the media were beginning to take control of her image and it made her feel like she was spinning out of control:

 

“Last year, I felt like I was definitely not in control of the media’s narrative of me. It made me feel very out of control of my own life or my ability to have my own perception of who I was. You don’t want someone else writing your narrative and making you the villain. Then I just realised that, you know what, you can’t control it and I think I accepted that and moved on to living my life.”
