Los Angeles - Iggy Azalea has quit social media again.

The Black Widow hitmaker, who recently admitted she thinks people "hate" her, has given her management team control of her Instagram account because she decided it was time to take "a break".

A notice on the 24-year-old star's profile was posted on Friday.

The Australian beauty announced she was quitting Twitter last month after critics blasted her bikini body.

She tweeted at the time: "Just got back from a great vacation, came online and saw apparently it's shocking and unheard of to be a woman and have cellulite. Lol.

"I feel the hatred and pettiness i see online at all times is at making me become an angry person and I cannot be that.

"To become nasty because of the way I feel iam treated would be a disservice to my fans and I promise i will try to keep smiling.

"But I also want to let my fans know iam taking some time away from social media. I need to be happy and it is too negative and draining (sic)."

However, the Fancy hitmaker still occasionally updates her fans via the site.
