Iggy Azalea is currently in Brazil where she was performing earlier today. Unfortunately, things ended earlier than expected after one of Iggy Azalea’s backup dancers collapsed on stage.
TMZ reports that one of Iggy Azalea’s backup dancers collapsed earlier today while performing on stage with the Australian rapper. The rapper was performing on stage at Maracanã Stadium in Rio de Janeiro. Iggy walked over to the dancer and ordered a medic to come on stage immediately before jumping into her verse on “Black Widow.” The song abruptly cuts short while she’s performing and the audience seems incredibly silent throughout the incident. An ambulance was driven on stage to make sure the backup dancer received proper care. Iggy jumped back into her set right after.
Iggy took to social media to address her backup dancers collapse. “Hey guys, just want to let everyone asking know my dancer is OKAY! The lights a& heat caused her to have a seizure. She is backstage feeling much better,” she wrote on her Instagram Story.
Iggy continued to explain why she didn’t cut the music. She said that she thought the dancer’s leg was twisted and didn’t understand the severity of the injury until the music stopped. She also asked her fans to not turn her backup dancer into a meme, despite how easy it is.
