Iggy Azalea has clapped back at Las Vegas Raiders beat writer Tashan Reed after he posted on Twitter that the singer's halftime performance made him depressed.

Reed posted that the combination of the stadium trying to make BBQ while the singer was performing wasn't the best combination. Well, the singer herself responded and gave Reed an almighty tongue-lashing:

"If you think you're depressed now I'll spare you the tears you'd cry knowing what my paycheck was to come and jiggle a lil a**."
If you think you’re depressed now I’ll spare you the tears you’d cry knowing what my paycheck was to come and jiggle a lil ass.…

The halftime show was seen as a hit by the singer herself, as well as those who attended. Allegiant Stadium was rocking out to the singer's halftime show as she played all her hits.

I had an amazing day in Vegas today! 🙇‍♀️My first time seeing a football game live & they won! Thanks @Raiders and their fans, Everyone around the stage really hyped me up & I appreciated it like you’ll never know because I was very, very nervous! 💗😘

Iggy Azalea's performance helps Raiders down Texans?

While the singer's halftime show likely had no standing in the game, the Raiders came out in the second half and made a statement. They defeated the Houston Texans 38-20 behind a huge 21-point fourth quarter.

Las Vegas outscored the Texans 28-10 in the second half as they moved to 2-4 on the season.


The Raiders were best served by their star players. Derek Carr (21/27 for 241 yards, 1 TD), running back Josh Jacobs (20 carries, 143 yards, 3 TDs) and star receiver Davante Adams (8 rec, 95 yards) all showed out.

It has been a frustrating start to life in Vegas for Josh McDaniels as his Raiders have lost four games this season, three by a single score. While being close, they just can't get themselves over the line.

While not out of playoff contention by any means, their margin for error is not extremely big for the remainder of the year. With the Kansas City Chiefs at 5-2 and leading the AFC West, the Raiders have to win all their games and hope that the Chiefs don't.

This isn't exactly what a team wants; rather preferring their destiny to be in their own hands. But given their poor start, that's where they find themselves. With the New Orleans Saints, Jacksonville Jaguars and Indianapolis Colts in their next three games, Las Vegas will need to beat all three to keep pressure on the Chiefs.

Sunday was a step in the right direction. A big win over the Texans and with Iggy Azalea performing at halftime, it was a good day, even if one reporter didn't think so.
