Speaking to Seventeen magazine, Iggy said she decided against proceeding with her Great Escape tour because she’s “had a different creative change of heart.”
Following news of the cancellation last Friday, Iggy explained, “I want to start totally anew, and if I stayed on my tour, that would mean I wouldn’t even be able to start working on that until after Christmas.”
She also just needs a mental time out, which is understandable considering her insane, non-stop schedule over the past two years. “I just feel I deserve a break,” she said.
“It’s very emotionally draining to be on all the time and going all the time, planning all the time. It’s a lot, and it’s tough,” she continued. “I need a break from everything to just enjoy what I worked so hard for, and I don’t really feel like I’ve had a chance to do that.”
“I need a break to figure out what I want my sound to progress to, and I need a break to figure out how I want my visuals to progress.”
Now when she comes back with her new record and tour in 2016, expectation will be bigger than ever. Here’s hoping she can meet it.
