Papa John’s Takes Action Against Their Iggy Azalea-Loving Employee

Iggy Azalea

Following her big loss at the Grammy’s on Sunday night, Iggy Azalea got into a war of words with none other than Papa John’s Pizza on Twitter, after a relative of one of their delivery men contacted her to say he was her biggest fan. Following a quick and not-so-witty semi-apology on Twitter (where they used her lyrics,) Papa John’s has now issued a real response, as well as reportedly took action.

“Privacy of our customers and employees is extremely important to us. Papa John’s has taken appropriate disciplinary action with regard to the employee involved. We are reaching out directly to Ms. Azalea and hope to resolve this incident and make it right.”

The company did not reveal what disciplinary steps it had taken in regards to the employee.

Waka Flocka Announces ‘Flockaveli 2′ Release Date + Some MAJOR Features!

Waka Flocka

Waka Flocka has been busy touring and being a reality star on Love & Hip-Hop: Atlanta, but he’s managed to find time to record in between, and is now gearing up for the release of a new studio album. Taking to Twitter yesterday, the Brick Squad rapper revealed that Flockaveli 2 will drop on June 1, and will feature cameos from the likes of Jay Z, Kanye West, Lil Wayne, Drake and 50 Cent. Those are some pretty huge names!

Back in November, Flocka revealed an tracklist of sorts by taking a picture of the project in his iTunes, but at 31 songs, it’s likely that they all will not make the cut – especially considering most labels are restricting standard albums to 10 songs these days. (You get a few more on a deluxe version, but that’s about 3 at best…nowhere near 31!)

Will you be checking for Flockaveli 2 when it drops?

He doesn’t want to call it a rant, so we’ll call Trey Songz’ latest voice of opinion his truth. “I don’t rant,” he goes in after a long evening of watching Sam Smith take home award after award, during the 57th annual Grammys.

Trey Songz, who was not one of the nominees this year, is opening up about why he believes this is so. Popularity, of course. Covering up the, “culture for popularity” as he would tweet it.

Iggy Azalea in court

Not only did Iggy Azalea have a horrific night at the Grammys after she lost in all four categories that she was nominated in, but she also had an incident with Papa John’s Pizza! Prior to the show, the Aussie femcee ordered a cheese pizza from the company to fill her tummy prior to attending the award show. Shortly after she got her pie of cheesy goodness, she started receiving text messages from the brother of her delivery man, claiming he’s her “number one fan” and saying Iggy is his “idol.”

Iggy quickly hopped on Twitter (like she tends to do) and started sounding off on Papa John’s, going in on their entire lives each tweet at a time. The official PJ Twitter account actually answered the “Fancy” artist, begging for her forgiveness. Very entertaining, none-the-less. Check out Iggy Azalea vs. Papa John’s Pizza over in the gallery.
