Days after Lizzo broke down on social media after reading negative comments about herself, Iggy Azalea took to social media yesterday (August 16th) to reveal that she thinks record labels should prioritize their artists' mental health by hiring psychologists.
She tweeted, “I REALLY WISH record labels would all agree to make it mandatory to hire at least ONE psychologist per label. Almost EVERY artist in recent times has expressed struggling with the level of hate & pressure. Sports teams do it for their athletes, why not music labels?”
She said it would be “pretty easy” for the labels to implement the change and called out Universal Music Group CEO Lucian Grainge and Sony Music Group CEO Rob Stringer. Iggy was once signed to Universal's Island Def Jam. She said, “Between these two guys that’s literally like 85% coverage across the labels. See what I’m saying?”
