(News) Iggy Azalea Paper Interview Highlights

Rapper/model Iggy Azalea recently sat down with Paper for an interview to discuss topics such as twerking, dating, her name, A$AP Rocky, and some other good stuff. She seems to get pretty feisty and defensive when asked about twerking! Here’s the highlights of it:

On twerking: “I’ve been doing that onstage for two-and-a-half years. [Miley] probably f**king watched my videos online and decided to try it.”

On her relationship with Grand Hustle: “T.I.’s family. I’ll always be loyal to him.”

On performing in Australia: “It’ll be weird when my parents are there. Not because of the dancing or the sexuality, but because they created me. There will be fans screaming for me, but my parents know the real side of me. The side that’s not cool.”

On how she got her stage name: “When I was a kid, Iggy was my dog. But he’d always get in fights and come home covered in blood. One time, he got bitten by a snake. I thought for sure he was going to die, but he’d always make it. Iggy was the runt of the litter, but he always survived. I really loved that dog. He was a tough, cool, determined fighter. He had all the characteristics I admire in people. When he got put down, I got a nameplate necklace with his name. People started calling me that, too.”

On moving to the U.S.: “I loved it here. It was like the movies, but real. I wanted to live in America ever since I visited. I bought a blue wig on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and I wore it everywhere. I thought people would think it was my real hair. Now that I look back on it, I’m like, that hair does not look real, girl.”

On dating: “Guys don’t approach me. I have to approach them. It’s so annoying. I think I must have a bitchy face, because guys don’t want to talk to me. It’s true, I have a mean face.”

On her evolution: “If I wrote these songs at the beginning of my career, they’d be about ass cheeks. All the songs. Now only one song’s about ass cheeks — out of sixteen. That’s growth right there.”

On A$AP Rocky: “We’re still friends, but I don’t have the need to talk to him anymore.”
