Working Wednesday. It’s a working day today, so why not get things started with Iggy Azalea putting up a fight against some online bullies? Speaking of bullies, is 50 Cent finally siding with his former rap rival Jay Z? They’re not rivals but they’re also no longer lovers, Drake and Rihanna appeared to distance themselves at a recent event. All this coming up in SOHH Whatcha Think.

1. She’s A Fighter
Iggy Azalea has never been one to walk away from a fight and she really put up a good one this week when the beef made its way onto the Internet. RumorFix is up on it:
Iggy Azalea won’t put up with online bullying.
The singer took to Twitter Monday night to post a series of tweets slamming who she called “internet kids” for bullying artists on social media, including one which read, “Don’t be cruel to one another. And learn to understand how much work it takes to achieve anything in life.”
The tweets were sparked when Nicki Minaj fans started putting down the Aussie after she scored number one hit on the US Billboard hot 10 last week.
Way to put them in their place, Iggy! (RumorFix)
Is Iggy Azalea running for mayor? For a rap star on the rise, she really went PG and offered some life lessons on the issue of online bullying topic. Could the mainstream “Fancy” fame be having an effect on her? #SOHHWhatchaThink?
2. Split Decision
It’s already an old story but there’s nothing like hearing 50 Cent’s take on Jay Z and Solange’s elevator incident. Contact Music has the info:
50 Cent thinks Jay Z did the ”right thing” during his confrontation with Solange Knowles.
The rapper was impressed his fellow hip-hop star managed to keep his cool and not lash out during the now-infamous showdown with his wife Beyoncé’s younger sister in an elevator after the Met Gala in New York City last month.
The ‘Candy Shop’ hitmaker told E! News: ”He did the right thing. They’ll make fun of it because it’s an opportunity to make fun. At the end of the day, the nightmare would’ve been him responding in any other way.” (Contact Music)
Could you disagree? If Jay had put a finger on Solange, wouldn’t this all be a crazy situation? #SOHHWhatchaThink?
3. Lovers & Friends
Will we see Rihanna and Drake dating again? Well, it doesn’t seem like it right now. Rihanna and Drake were recently at the same spot and didn’t bother to make themselves a rumored item. Page Six has the inside:
Rihanna and ex Drake kept a cool distance at VIP Room early Monday.
The couple, who had a tumultuous dating history and broke up, again, last month, acknowledged each other with a smile after Drake arrived with Lil Wayne and jumped in the DJ booth at a party following their appearance at the Hot 97 Summer Jam at MetLife Stadium.
“Rihanna was at the table in front of the DJ booth,” says a spy. “They smiled at each other, but that was it. He kept to himself and played some new songs. Rihanna danced with her friends.”
Nicki Minaj, who sang at the concert earlier and brought Drake and Lil Wayne onstage, was also there along with Trey Songz, Tyson Beckford and Wiz Khalifa. (Page Six)
Is it too early to say Drake and Rihanna are hating on each other or at least not interested in bumping into one another? #SOHHWhatchaThink?
