This week, rumors have been floating around that Iggy Azalea recorded a sex tape with her ex-boyfriend, Houston rapper Hefe Wine. She says no. Hefe Wine says yes. So does Steven Hirsch, the CEO of porn company Vivid Entertainment, which allegedly has the footage, and so does Iggy’s legal camp, although they say it was shot without her consent and she might have been underage at the time.
Whether or not Iggy Azalea did record a sex tape, however, two things are clear: 1) If she did, she clearly doesn’t want it out there, which is reason enough to stop talking about it right now, and 2) her response to the rumors, an epic rant on Twitter referencing Celebgate and lambasting the media for invading female celebrities’ privacy, is spot-on:

Anyone who releases or attempts to make profit off someone else's intimate moments against their will is a sex offender.— IGGY AZALEA (@IGGYAZALEA) September 11, 2014
& it honestly makes me sick to see the media encourage any other attitude towards those sorts of people, we should want to protect our women— IGGY AZALEA (@IGGYAZALEA) September 11, 2014

Well-played, Iggy. Well-played. Now that that’s settled, let’s move on to more important news stories, like that kid who might go to jail for skull-banging Jesus.
