Iggy Azalea Had To Stop Crowdsurfing Because People Tried To Finger Her
Yeah. I don't know—with "Work" I did Priscilla, Queen Of The Desert. I just like it, 'cause I like to pick classic films, or films that have marked culture, and I like to remake them, kind of to go with the whole New Classic thing. I think it's cool to get a new generation interested in things that maybe they kind of missed. Like, I noticed that a lot of people thought that "Fancy" was a remake of Mean Girls. It's generational, that. [Laughs] So I think it's cool with stuff like that, for them to be able to re-discover something that they may have looked over, and I think that that's always fun.
So these are movies that you grew up watching?
Yeah, they're kind of like my personal favorites, just from things that when I was a kid that I loved, or that I watched over and over again, or that I think are cool fashion moments, or that are cool cultural moments that have defined culture. Maybe not hip-hop culture, but I think that they have defined pop culture, in a way. Especially Clueless, with its fashion and the '90s [influence], I think it did.
Iggy Azalea who has become a darling of the high fashion world, still finds herself guarding against ratchetness to the highest level. During her talk to promote her debut album which comes out today on the Hot 97 Morning Show, The Australian MC, revealed that she has to take precautions to stop fans who want to throw their hands somewhere other than the air when she crowd-surfs at shows.
“I had to stop (crowdsurfing)…People try to finger me,” she explained. Azalea went on to talk about how she wears two pairs of underpants and tights under her pants to ward off the intruders.
Rightfully so she draws the line. “Buying my album for $12 doesn’t mean you get to finger me when I come to your city. It’s weird.”—G. Valentino Ball
