Amethyst Kelly Azalea A.K.A Iggy Azalea broke through the Hip-Hop hit music scene with her platinum winning 2014 song Fancy ft Charli XCX.
Iggy was born in June 1990 and grew up in countryside of Australia.
Before even turning 16, she moved to America to pursue her love for rap music. She is known famously for her collabs with T.I. (her
producer) Ariana Grande, Charli XCX and Rita Ora.
She’s probably the most hated rapper for 3 reasons.
She’s Australian, white and a woman.
She’s received hate from Snoop, Drake and others in the music scene.
In my opinion, they’re all jealous that she’s the new face of hip-hop and rap music and they’re not.
Despite all her haters, her style of music has opened up many fashion collabs with brands like Forever 21, which also featured her boyfriend NBA player Nick Young.
After this campaign the gorgeous blonde captured the attention of Steve Madden, a high end shoe designer. She happily accepted, and within a bit of time, she had a line of shoes with him.
But… anger sparked in Iggy when something happened that she wasn’t expecting.
This. Photos Iggy hadn’t approved for said collab. She took to Twitter to say this.
After blowing off steam for some time, she cleared things up on Instagram saying she loves Steve and the whole collab; she was just angry that photos were taken without her consent, and that everything in a collaboration should be approved by everyone before being shown to the public. I mean, she is the star of the collab. It’s her name on the shoes before it’s Steve Madden’s. Thankfully, there are some photos she was in, that were mutually approved. (None of which have crotch shots or pool toys)
I’m a huge Azalean (fan of Iggy)! I’m so happy that Iggy, despite everything, rose to the top and continues to create such her unique style of music. A day will never come when I don’t buy her album on iTunes, because she offers something nobody has ever offered, and something nobody will ever be able to offer again. She has such a one of a kind voice when she raps, that it’s hard not to want to listen to more.
To be 100% honest, I’d love to see design her own clothing line, because her outfits on stage are always on point! I’m sure she has a stylist but Iggy seems like the kind of gal that wouldn’t wear something she didn’t wanna. I feel like she has some say in what she wears, and even when she’s just shopping, she looks stunning.
I wish Iggy all the success in her future endeavours and hopefully a future clothing line!
