Australian rapper Iggy Azalea has moved to silence "lame" rumors of a feud with fellow hip-hop star Nicki Minaj by urging fans to "let it go".

The Starships hitmaker sparked gossip about a rift between the pair when she delivered a cryptic message in her acceptance speech at the BET Awards on Sunday.

Minaj, who won the Best Female Hip-Hop Artist prize ahead of Azalea, told the audience, "(What) I want the world to know about Nicki Minaj is, that when you hear Nicki Minaj spit, Nicki Minaj wrote it," and fans speculated she was referring to her rap rival.

Azalea has now responded to the online furor, urging fans to give up the "pettiness".

In a message posted on her Instagram.com page, she writes, "I have to say the general explosion of pettiness online in the last few days is hard to ignore & honestly... lame. If I had won the BET award that would've been great but it wasn't my year & I don't mind - so you shouldn't either. Generally speaking, I'm unbothered (sic) by anything that 'happened' at the BET awards and just feel worn out by everyone trying to make me have wars with people all the time... I hate to see everyone exhausting themselves on my behalf over things that I'm still not 100 per cent sure even exist & don't matter. Just let it go."

Minaj previously accused "the media" of misreporting her speech.
