T.I. is jumping to Iggy Azalea's defense!!
In response to Banks' racially charged rant, the rapper tweeted:
Lucy Hale is a little bit country! More than a little bit, actually.
"I’m going to do a country/pop album, and I couldn’t be more excited. I grew up in Tennessee, so that’s always been my heart and soul."
So when do we finally get to hear this beautiful fusion? Lucy says:
"We started to record it last month… The album will be out this summer. A single will be out in the spring."
Next summer?? In the meantime, tide yourself over with a clip of Lucy giving a winning performance on 2003's American Juniors after the jump!
Ch-ch-check out the video (below) of the future starlet (starletlet?) belting out Make It Easy On Yourself next to a baby-faced Ryan Seacrest!
