Ariel Winter is befuddled by Iggy Azalea’s comments on Eminem’s new diss-track, “Killshot,” directed toward Machine Gun Kelly, which used Iggy’s name briefly. As fans of the rapper know, Eminem’s new song came out on YouTube, amassing 50 million views in just two days, but Iggy wasn’t happy about the rapper referring to her as a “ho.”
She took to Twitter to explain her feelings on the song, accusing Eminem of merely name-dropping other artists as a way of “padding out lazy bars.”
In the song, the legendary MC claimed Machine Gun Kelly would never be on his level, not even on the level of Taylor Swift or that “Iggy ho.”
Is she seriously calling out Eminem for having “lazy” bars…….awkward because…I mean… pic.twitter.com/Yi5XjJIrmR

Iggy wrote previously that, “diss songs shouldn’t be filled with celebrity name drops to pad out lazy bars.” Azalea was criticized for her comments on Mathers’ recent song, considering Eminem is known for his double entendres, word-play, and technical ability – a far cry from what most would consider as “lazy,” regardless of its catchiness as a song.
Just a few hours after Iggy let the world know what she felt about “Killshot,” Ariel suggested Iggy was a bit out of her reach, and should maybe sit this one out.
Winter conceded that she enjoyed Iggy’s music too, but according to Ariel, calling Eminem’s verses “lazy” is a bit extreme and unfounded. The Modern Family star added that Iggy’s tracks aren’t “anywhere near Eminem’s caliber” in terms of lyricism or technical ability.
I still enjoy some of her music I just can’t understand how she would think that she had any ground to stand on saying what she said about an absolute rap legend.

This all started after Eminem made waves with his brand new record, Kamikaze, where he took aim at many artists in the rap game right now, as well as his critics who thrashed his previous album, Revival.
After Kamikaze‘s release, Machine Gun Kelly came out with his own diss-track called, “Rap Devil,” a word-play on Eminem’s song from 2013, “Rap God.” In MGK’s song, he said Eminem was angry, old, and irrelevant, and described his beard as “weird.”
