Iggy Azalea asks 'what's the point' amid scathing criticism for carrying on dancing

Iggy Azalea said she feels 'worn down' and like she 'can do nothing right' in an emotional Instagram post on Thursday. 

The Australian singer, 28, told her followers she was 'exhausted' after she faced a barrage of criticism for continuing to sing after her backup dancer collapsed on stage in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, earlier that night.

The musician was performing her song Black Widow, when the dancer collapsed to the floor and suffered a seizure. 

After being slammed by fans for not briefly halting the show to seek medical assistance, she posted a message that read, at length: 'Sometimes I really feel exhausted by the world.'

'It feels like anything I do becomes an opportunity for people to tell me why I'm s**t, why my music sucks, my clothes are ugly, why I don't matter or why I'm a horrible person.'

'I'm worn down. The last four years are just me existing in a world where I can do nothing right and it's hard not to feel like "what's the point" and keep motivated.'

She concluded with a call for her fans, and haters, to be 'kinder' to her and one another. 

'Everyone is just trying to make it through their day. Could we be a little kinder to each other?'

'Seeing how much people enjoy being awful to one another is depressing,' the rapper wrote. 

Earlier on in the day, Iggy took to Instagram to update her fans on the scary incident, saying she just wanted 'to let everyone asking know my dancer is OKAY' in the wake of her seizure. 

'She is backstage feeling much better,' the Fancy songstress wrote adding that the seizure was caused by 'the lights and heat' cascading down on the stage.
