With two number 1 hits and tons of other stuff in the works, one thing Iggy Azalea is not worried about is haters. In a recent interview with The Guardian, Iggy spoke on the matter saying that her music is authentic and no one can tell her different.
“I have never had any musicians tell me that I wasn’t authentic for being white and Australian,” Iggy said in the interview. “No one. Even I had a warped perception of how I would be received in this business. What I’ve come to realize is that it’s the people who write about music–or who are outside it in some way–who have a problem with what I am doing. The only true insiders are the musicians themselves.”
Perhaps Iggy’s response stems from Nicki Minaj’s acceptance speech at the BET Awards in which many believe Nicki was insulting Iggy. “This is my fifth year winning this award. I don’t take it for granted,” said Nicki when accepting the award for Best Female Hip-Hop Artist at the BET Awards. “When you hear Nicki Minaj spit, Nicki Minaj wrote it. No, no shade… no shade,” she continued, silencing rumors of her not writing her own rhymes.”
