According to Billboard.com, Rita recently told The Sun she is interested in getting together a few pop stars for a remake of Labelle's 1975 "Lady Marmalade," a la Lil' Kim, Christina Aguilera, Pink, and Maya's 2001 remake.
"I'm trying to round up the troops," Rita said. "I think it would be me, Miley Cyrus, Charli XCX—she'd be fun—and Iggy." While that might have seemed like a good idea to some, the Twitterverse completely roasted her for saying it.
And tweeters weren't the only ones. Iggy wasn't here for it either, with the rapper tweeting after the buzz hit the web, "Please leave me out of the whole Lady Marmalade conversation. I have nothing to do with ritas ideas & agree it should be left alone. Thanks." Gulp.

So far, Miley and Charli haven't commented on Rita's dream collaboration, and Rita hasn't said anything more after Iggy's comments. For now, it looks like the duo will just be sticking to more performances of "Black Widow" (which isn't a bad thing).
