The Australian rapper was supposed to appear at shows in Sydney on Oct. 31, Nov. 1 and Nov. 2, but she will be replaced by Kiwi singer Stan Walker. Azalea will still perform at the final Sydney tour stop at Allphones Arena on November 3. The tour begins on October 16 in Melbourne.
Azalea made the announcement via Twitter:

The 23-year-old has said in the past that Miley Cyrus copied her twerking dance moves. "I've been doing that onstage for two-and-a-half years," Azalea said. "She probably [expletive] watched my videos online and decided to try it."
