The Veronicas look to take down fur-wearing Iggy Azalea in chart battle

Singing siblings The Veronicas have taken aim at fellow Australian Iggy Azalea for wearing a fur coat in a new photo.

The newly-single Fancy star will be doing battle in the charts Down Under with Lisa and Jessica Origliasso, and MTV bosses are having fun with the spat by posting images of the two acts back to back.

And one shot, in which Iggy appears to be wearing a fur coat, has really spiked the rivalry and prompted a response from animal rights activists the Origliasso sisters.

Responding to the MTV 'battle' tweet, which reads, "Can Iggy take on the twins?", they state: "We can take on anyone who thinks skinning an animal and wearing it is 'fashion'."

Azalea can't seem to get out of the way of controversy at the moment - she recently split from fiance Nick Young, revealing, "I broke up with Nick because I found out he had brought other women into our home while I was away and caught them on the security footage."

The scandal came just months after the basketball star was caught on camera boasting about cheating on his girlfriend.

After learning he has been inviting girls back to their Los Angeles pad on the sly, Iggy adds, "This is just like a second shot to the chest. And I feel like I don't even know who the hell it is I've been loving all this time."
