We all need to look after our mental health and pop stars need a breather from time to time as well.

In a candid interview with Billboard, Azalea describes how a trip to a mental retreat helped her deal with anger issues and reckon with the importance of her mental health.

"I’ve never really sat down and had an honest conversation with professional people," Iggy said. "It was good to say something to somebody who could give me the tools and information on how to make my life manageable when I’m feeling those things. So it was really useful — I’m glad that I went."

"I really wish there was more of an infrastructure within the music industry to make sure that the artists have people they can go to," Azalea said.
"Like physical therapists in sports. The teams have people looking out for [players], that make sure they’re okay in every element, and the music business doesn’t have that — they just throw you out there. You get used to it and you’re still successful, but it’s a lot to deal with."
