Iggy Azalea has dismissed Rita Ora's recent suggestion that she wants to form an all-girl supergroup to cover 'Lady Marmalade'.
X Factor judge Ora recently told The Sun that she's an admirer of the 2001 cover rendition of the song, which was recorded Christina Aguilera, Pink, Lil Kim and Mýa. She stated that she would love to re-record the track with Azalea, Miley Cyrus and Charli XCX.
However, Australian rapper Azalea has now taken to Twitter to distance herself from the comments after the public reacted negatively to the idea.
She wrote: "Please leave me out of the whole Lady Marmalade conversation. I have nothing to do with ritas ideas & agree it should be left alone. Thanks".

'Lady Marmalade' was first released by girl group Labelle in 1975.
Ora initially said: "It's always been my goal to create another 'Lady Marmalade' I'm trying to round up the troops - I think it would be me, Miley [Cyrus], Charli XCX - she'd be fun - and Iggy [Azalea]."
Meanwhile, Iggy Azalea recently revealed the title of her next album: 'Digital Distortion'. The LP will be the follow up to 2014 debut 'The New Classic'.
