'I had a psychotic breakdown': Iggy Azalea reveals real reason behind her cancelled 2015 tour as she poses topless and in racy nude lingerie for sultry shoot
She left fans devastated last year when she cancelled her much-anticipated US tour.
Now Iggy Azalea has revealed the real reason why she abandoned the shows, during an interview with Schön! Magazine, for which she also poses for a racy photo shoot.
The 25-year-old Australian star tells the publication she suffered a 'psychotic breakdown'.

'Last time, the tour that I ended up cancelling, because I had to have a psychotic break-down last year, now we're going to do North America and the rest of Europe, which I didn't feel like I was in the place to do that last time,' the Fancy star says.
In May 2015, ticket holders were informed of the tour's cancellation via email citing 'production delays', with Iggy taking to Twitter confirming the news and apologising for 'letting her fans down'.
But the following month, Iggy began to reveal the real reason behind the tour's abandonment, telling Seventeen magazine that she needed a 'mental break' from her 'non-stop' schedule.
'It can kind of wear on you, too, when you’ve been doing the same material for a really long time,' she said.
'I feel like I’m at the end of an era now. To go on a tour in late September  and to stay in that mindset of what I’d envisioned for that tour, I feel like that would stifle me.'
But she reassures fans in her interview with Schön! that she's in a much better headspace now and is ready to tackle a new touring schedule.
'I felt tired and stressed out [then]. Now, I feel like my energy's been renewed,' she says.

In her accompanying interview, the outspoken star also tells Schön! Magazine that she's got a busy year ahead, juggling the release of her long awaited for second album and her nuptials with NBA star beau Nick Young, 30.
Iggy and Nick have been dating since November 2013 and became engaged in June 2015, and the singer has revealed wedding plans are well underway.
'I know where I'm getting married, and the date. I have my wedding dress being made. I've booked my honeymoon. I guess the plans underway, but I haven't made any major decisions, like I haven't picked the food or like done the table settings or flowers or any of that stuff yet,' she explains.
The star has admitted though that her touring and promo commitments for her second album could disrupt her plans, pointing out:
'I've just got to figure out when the hell to put it on, I've got to have a wedding and go on a f**king honey moon and... Put on an arena tour, all across the whole world.

'I just need to figure out when the f**k I'm going to do it. Because after getting married, I'll probably be like "I'm married, now I'm going on tour forever, bye honey.'''
Iggy's making her big comeback this year with the release of her second album Digital Distortion.
She admits fans might be surprised by her new sound, with the star giving a teaser of her comeback with the release of its track Azillion in January, while the lead single Team goes on sale on March 18.
'If you happen to have a song that organically works for the radio, great. That was my approach for Digital Distortion and it really freaked everybody out at my label, because I was like "I'm not going to try to make you a pop song I'm just warning you now. I might make an album that your nine-year-old daughter absolutely f**king hates."'

'"If that's how it ends up, at the end of the six month period, or however long it takes me, I'm sorry but you're going to have to figure out a way to market the album that does not include the radio." I think their brains imploded. I would vote the Internet over the radio.'
While she credits the Internet with being the future in terms of fuelling music sales, Iggy adds that she's cautious about what she shares of her life on social media, pointing out the message behind her album title - that 'anything online is a double-edged sword.'
She explains that she's often told by marketing experts to 'take more pictures with celebrity friends' in order to bump up her Twitter and Instagram follower counts, but Iggy insists her only real showbiz pal is her neighbour in Los Angeles - Demi Lovato.
Not long now! Iggy and Nick have been dating since November 2013 and became engaged in June 2015, and the singer has revealed wedding plans are underway
'I don't know I don't really hang out with anyone. The only person I really hang out with is Demi Lovato - she's my only real life friend but anybody who supports me is a friend as well if I see them but I don't have any of these people's phone numbers, we don't go have lunch or anything like that. Demi's my closest friend, someone I hang out with in the privacy of my own home.'
'Who wants to fake hang out with people to take pictures for Instagram, so you can get more likes? It's just so fake. If that's what you want to do, and that's a business move for you, then that's your choice. My position is - there's plenty of people in the industry that I like or that I think I great. I'm not someone who calls up someone to go for lunch twice just to take an Instagram picture. That's just not what I do.'
'Demi I hang out with all the time because she lives like two blocks away, that seems organic to me. If anybody else moves in down the street, we will hang out. Other than, I don't really care to.'
Keeping things real: Iggy adds that she's cautious about what she shares on social media, and won't make 'fake friends' in order to up her follower count, choosing instead to post pics of her real pals like Demi Lovato
