Rita Ora recently told The Sun that she is “rounding up the troops” to create a remake of the song “Lady Marmalade,” which was recorded by Christina Aguilera, Mya, Pink, and Lil’ Kim in 2001 for the Moulin Rouge! soundtrack.

Written by Bob Crewe and Kenny Nolan, it was also a popular hit when it was first released in 1974 by the American girl group Labelle.

“It’s always been my goal to create another Lady Marmalade. I’m trying to round up the troops,” Ora told The Sun. “I think it would be me, Miley Cyrus, Charli XCX—she’d be fun—and Iggy.”

However? It looks like Iggy Azalea wants nothing to do with the project. The Australian rapper, who claims to have some Aboriginal (Indigenous Australian) ancestry, shut Rita down in front of her almost-six million Twitter followers.

Rita has yet to make a comment about Iggy’s very-public dissent and seems to be keeping herself busy with promotions. The 24-year-old was spotted at London’s new hotspot Sexy Fish for a performance.

Iggy specifically said that she wants to stay out of the “Lady Marmalade conversation,” and that she had nothing to do with Rita’s idea.

Ouch. It’s a good thing Rita still has a lot of good stuff on her plate.
