I’d had a big breakup, and my career wasn’t going well

Iggy Azalea opened up to Mark Wright at the iHeartRadio Music Award show about her steady battle with depression. According to her, depression kept her indoors for two years.

She said,

“I think you gotta take it day by day. Just find an excuse to get out of the house.’ On if she found herself staying indoors, she said; ‘Oh yeah. I stayed in the house for a good two years.’ ‘It was a really heavy period in my life where I’d had a lot of changes that had happened overnight.

I’d had a big breakup, and my career wasn’t going well. And I sort of found myself in this space where everything that I was used to, just my day-to-day routine, had abruptly stopped.

‘And I just didn’t know how to get my life back together, or what my life looked like with all of these changes, and how to get a routine going again, and just how to get my happiness back and feeling normal. So that was the space that I was in when I wrote this song.”
