Iggy Azalea is opening up about her hilarious rivalry with Peppa Pig after the animated star of hit children’s show “Peppa Pig” released her first album and invited the cartoon pig to join her for a musical collaboation.
On Monday, the show’s official Twitter account shared the news that Peppa Pig My First Album will be released on Friday, featuring 16 tracks including “Bing Bong Zoo” and “Jumping In Muddy Puddles”.
A brief video teaser offers a taste of the upcoming album, which commemorates the 15th anniversary of the beloved British children’s TV show.
One fan of the show responded to the tweet — none other than Iggy Azalea, whose latest album, In My Defense, was released on July 13.
With Peppa’s album about to drop, Azalea jokingly tweeted, “It’s over for me now.”
The anthropomorphic pig was quick to respond, offering a joking reference to Azalea’s hit “Fancy”.
Azalea responded with an invitation — or is it a threat?
“Collab with me now or you’ll end up a breakfast special peppa,” she wrote.
Naturally, fans weighed in with their thoughts about this dream collaboration — and Azalea’s threat to serve the lovable swine on a plate alongside fried eggs and hash browns.
In a subsequent interview with E! News, Azalea addressed her hilarious “feud” with Peppa.
“She hasn’t said anything to me since,” said Azalea of Peppa. “But I’m beating her on the chart today, surprisingly.”
In fact, Azalea’s latest, In My Defense, has hit #22 on the iTunes U.K. chart, while Peppa’s is only at #55. Meanwhile, on the U.S. album charts, In My Defense landed at #5, while Peppa hasn’t even charted.
“I really was scared though because Peppa Pig is so popular with kids,” Azalea admitted. “When I saw that Peppa Pig was releasing an album, I was like, ‘Well that’s it. I’m out of the race. I’m beat, because I even started.”
