Iggy Azalea shocked fans when she postponed her 'Great Escape Tour,' which was slated to begin in April. The good news is that despite some of the rumors, the tour is not canceled, it's just pushed back a little bit. Of course, fans that were counting down the days until the tour want an explanation as to why they now have to wait a lot longer. And not only does Iggy have an explanation - she has a really, really good one.

In an interview with 97.1 AMP Radio, Iggy was asked why the tour was bumped back. "It is bumped back because I am a...psychopath," she jokes. "It's my first arena tour, so it's a big undertaking and I'm doing a lot of the creative direction, which I do for everything all my videos and everything...So it's tough when it's your first time working on an arena situation."

She explains that they're doing a custom stage and a custom build, which takes about six months and since they haven't started yet, she admits that they would have had to make compromises to get it going by April, which she was not willing to do.

Iggy asked herself: Did she want to honor the original dates and have an "average" tour or did she want to postpone it to make it an out-of-this-world tour? She chose the latter and she hopes that her fans will understand that.

"It was just important for me...I just don't want have that tour that is forgettable," she says. "People are paying a lot to go see - like $80-100 for a ticket - and it's a big commitment, you want to go and you want to get what you paid for and I want to give you what you paid for."

She continues, "If I feel like there is a possibility that that's going to have to be compromised, I'd rather refund your ticket if you can't make it to the new date and you keep your money because I want to honor that I'm giving you the absolute best show."
