T.I. is jumping to Iggy Azalea's defense!!
In response to Banks' racially charged rant, the rapper tweeted:
Why would you be nervous about making your blockbuster acting debut?
"I'll answer this, because it's probably uncomfortable for them to say no, but I was the one that was intimidated.
You know, we have a mutual respect for each other's industry.I was walking into this as an amateur — a complete amateur.
I didn't know anything and I had a good team to learn from.
I watched them, and especially Taylor, ’cause we did a lot of scenes together and he would always offer me advice.
But the biggest intimidation was working with Liam Neeson.
As with most of us, RiRi was in awe of the actor and was "scared as sh**" Neeson stepped on set.
With his recent string of movies, wouldn't you be too?!
We have faith that Rihanna did a FABulous job and we can't wait to see Battleship this summer!
