Azalea is on a break from social media, but she's still getting her share of the internet.

From Azealia Banks to Papa John's, Iggy Azalea has been involved in a lot of internet beef lately. So she stopped by The Cruz Show on Power 106 Los Angeles to explain why she's staying out of the social media scrum these days.

"I'm in the middle of recording a second album," Iggy said, explaining that trolling Internet trash talkers were killing her vibe. "I had to get out of that cycle of negativity."
