‘There’s nothing worse than not liking people you work with’: Guy Sebastian takes ANOTHER swipe at his former X Factor co-host Iggy Azalea as pair continue war of words
Guy Sebastian has taken another swipe at his former X Factor co-judge Iggy Azalea while promoting the new series of The Voice.
The singer starred alongside Iggy as a judge on X Factor’s 2016 series, and recently slammed the rapper for not being ‘invested’ in the show.
Now, Guy, 37, has seemingly taken another swipe at the Fancy hit-maker and claimed there is ‘nothing worse’ than ‘not liking the people you work with’.
Ouch: Guy Sebastian has taken another swipe at Iggy Azalea and the time they spent together on The X Factor, telling Channel Nine there is ‘nothing worse than not liking the people you work with’
In an interview with Channel Nine, ahead of his debut as a coach on The Voice, Guy gushed over his fellow celebrity coaches Delta Goodrem, Kelly Rowland and Boy George.
But his praise didn’t come without a thinly-veiled dig at Iggy, as he said: ‘There’s nothing worse than turning up to work and liking the people you work with.
‘I genuinely think this year’s gonna be great because we love each other.’
No love lost here! He made the thinly-veiled dig at the Fancy rapper while praising his fellow coaches on The Voice and insisting they ‘genuinely love each other’
‘The comradery is great,’ Guy said. ‘We’re prepared to go hard. We’re gonna fight.’
He and Iggy often clashed on The X Factor and the tension between the pair onscreen was often picked up by viewers.
Suggesting that there is still no love lost between them, Guy was recently seen slamming Iggy over her appearance on The X Factor three years ago, insisting ‘she wasn’t invested’ in the show.
Guy had been a judge on The X Factor alongside Iggy and Adam Lambert.
Tense: Guy slammed Iggy in a recent interview and claimed ‘she wasn’t invested’ in The X Factor’s 2016 series and criticised her ‘childish’ antics on the show
Speaking to Stellar magazine, he said: ‘Iggy wouldn’t rock up. And when she did, she’d just roll her eyes. I hated it. I really struggled that year.’
The Before I Go singer commented on all the ‘bickering’ between judges and criticised Iggy’s antics on the show for being ‘childish’.
Again comparing his experience on The X Factor to his new coaching role on The Voice, Guy said he is now in a much more ‘positive’ environment.
He added: ‘The other coaches probably don’t have much to compare it to, but for me it’s such a positive, nurturing environment.’
Fueling the fire: Iggy seemed to react to Guy’s comments by sharing a cryptic tweet claiming she ‘doesn’t give a f**k’ about other people’s opinions of her
The comments appeared to reignite his feud with Iggy, as she cryptically claimed she ‘doesn’t give a f**k’ about other people’s opinions in a tweet she posted just hours after Guy’s interview surfaced online.
‘I don’t actually give a f**k about other people’s opinions; I just can’t turn down the chance to tell someone they’re a dumb b***h. It’s in my blood & there is no cure,’ she wrote.
Guy is a new addition to The Voice for its upcoming eighth series which will be an all-stars season.
Performers from the show’s previous seven seasons will be invited back onto The Voice in the hope of relaunching their music careers.
Sour note: Iggy and Guy were often seen clashing as judges on The X Factor – they had been on the panel with Adam Lambert and guest judge Mel B
