Is an Iggy Azalea/Lorde Beef Brewing?

Shots fired (maybe): Iggy Azalea had some choice words for Lorde (our resident Queen of Hearts/The World) because of course she did.

"Nothing against her," Azalea said to Billboard in regards to Lorde, and her Rock 'n Roll Hall of Fame performance. "But I think when you're doing a tribute to someone that's dead, generally it should be the person's peer."

In case you missed it, Lorde perfomed "No Apologies" at Nirvana's induction. Why? Because why not? As Joy Behar would say, so what? Who cares?

"Lorde is not Kurt Cobain's peer," she continued. "No matter if she killed the performance or not, I just don't think it's appropriate."

Okay, and I mean, fair. But as Refinery 29 pointed out, it's a weird thing to go public about not being happy with — especially when Lorde recently defended Iggy Azalea after her album was critically panned. 

But on the flipside, I mean, is an opinion really "starting a beef"? It's not like Iggy said, "Wow and her performance was the worst and I hate Lorde" — she simply mentioned that she thinks a musician's contemporaries should be the ones to pay homage. And even though that opinion isn't right, it's not exactly throwing shade. (At least compared to some of the shades thrown of yore.)

What do you guys think? Is this just Iggy Azalea making headlines for the hell of it? Or has Billboard taken her comments out of context to make them seem like a bigger deal? Discuss.
