Brody Dalle Calls Out “Horrendous” JLo, Iggy Azalea Video

Distillers frontwoman Brody Dalle has taken aim at Jennifer Lopez and Iggy Azalea on Twitter, labelling the recently released video for JLo’s song Booty as “horrendous”, while also taking a swipe at contributing songwriter Chris Brown.

“I think JLo and iggy azalea have lost their heads up each other’s big butts,” tweeted the Australian-born rocker, openly criticising the pair of pop stars. “I’m trying to understand what the point of their horrendous video is but I can’t find one.”

The Hype Williams-directed clip was released last week and features a selection of scenes with both women, dressed in soaking leotards, gyrating against each other. In less than a week it has clocked up over 32 million views and reactions to it have been divided. Likes On YouTube have outnumbered dislikes by less than 2:1, a higher disapproval rating than usual.

“The song is a piece of crap that was written by waaay to many people including a well know woman beater,” she added, likely in reference to co-songwriter Chris Brown. Other people with songwriting credits on the track include, Lopez, Cory Rooney, Pitbull, Benny Medina, Asia Bryant, Danny Omerhodic, Lewis D. Gittus, Tedra Renee Wilson and Diplo. That’s ten people, if you had lost count.

Earlier this year, Dalle released her debut solo album under her own name, Diploid Love. She was last in Australia in March when she performed alongside her husband Josh Homme’s band Queens of the Stone Age and Nine Inch Nails.

UPDATE 25/09/14: Dalle has responded to claims that she has “slut shamed” Iggy Azalea and Jennifer Lopez in a new social media post.
