US artist Halsey has taken aim at Australia's Iggy Azalea in a controversial new interview, slamming the rapper as a "fucking moron".

Speaking with The Guardian, the 22-year-old said she would never include Azalea on any of her albums. 

"Absolutely not. She had a complete disregard for black culture," she said.

"Fucking moron. I watched her career dissolve and it fascinated me."

Halsey has faced backlash for the same interview, after she defended Migos rapper Quavo for homophobic comments he made earlier this year

"I think he's misunderstood," the songwriter said of Quavo.

"Just because I choose to be a socially conscious artist, and I'm pretty good at it, that doesn't mean every artist is going to be equipped to be politically correct. I don’t think he’s inherently homophobic, I think he’s in a tough place of trying to explain what he means.

"I agree his apology was bullshit but I can’t police everybody."

Halsey has since taken to Twitter to address the criticism.
