    "It was so much fun working with such a strong, badass woman like her."

    For context, Iggy and Britney collaborated on the 2015 song "Pretty Girls." Amid the song not performing as well as expected, Iggy tweeted at the time, “It’s difficult to send a song up the charts without additional promo and TV performances, etc." Long story short, the media played this up as a perceived feud — and Iggy received backlash.

    Then, three months ago, Iggy was accused of staying silent on Britney's conservatorship — when she reminded people that she had previously been vocal about the restrictions Britney's team put on her.

    @ItJstn Right, I said her team wouldn’t let her do promo and that they went through my house etc and y’all said I was a hater 🤷‍♀️

    In 2016, Iggy gave an interview where she explained how Britney's team searched her home before they were allowed to work together.

    Iggy also confirmed that she'd reached out to Britney privately:

    @Brianarrrr @cityboifromNY @spearscutie @ItJstn Iam actually here to support someone in a way that’s helpful and also mindful. Britney has said in her own words, she’s embarrassed to even share this with the world. If she needed me to speak on her behalf, That message has been delivered to her. Other than that - I’m good.

    Yesterday, Britney shared a pic of the two performing their collab "Pretty Girls" at the 2015 Billboard Music Awards, writing, "It was so much fun working with such a strong, badass woman like her."

    "I haven’t met her new baby but if she’s reading this God bless you and thank you for all your kind words."

    "Pssss although the name of the song is Pretty Girls I think the concept is more like revenge of the NERDS," she added.

    Iggy then responded in the comments, writing, "I absolutely adore you more than words (and I still have the Barbies you gave me)."

    "Loving you always you brilliant, too-genius-for this-world-to-understand, kind hearted, gracious & beautifully ethereal being. We are definitely two big ole goofballs in the best way possible."
