After a string of cancellations, one being a drop out of performing at Pittsburgh Pride in light of some past racially insensitive and homophobic sounding tweets, rapper Iggy Azalea will be replaced by none other than gay poster boy Nick Jonas!
“When I heard about the difficult position Pittsburgh Pride was in just days before their event, I knew I had to find a way to help,” said Jonas in a statement. “I’m excited to do what I can to support the LGBT community in Pittsburgh, and I look forward to seeing you this Saturday as we celebrate together.”
Iggy bowed out earlier this week saying:
“This has been a difficult decision as I truly support the event and LGBTQIA communities,” Azalea wrote in the statement, “however I feel my participation at this point would only serve to further distract from the true purpose of the event.”
