Watch Iggy Azalea’s “Fancy” Performance At ESPYs 2014
No, I never have. But I've always been interested in movie scores and movie soundtracks, and I think a good soundtrack can make the movie and a bad score can ruin it. I saw Pharrell doing "Happy"—I wouldn't compare myself to that, because he's a genius and I don't think I could ever do a whole movie—but it did make me think, "Hmm, that's cool that he's making original music for film, and I would like to make original music and sing songs for films." So I got in touch with some people over at Sony Pictures and different people like that about making it happen. It's different.
Is it easier to write for films?
It's really fun, I've been enjoying it. And I think it's also less pressure. Less worrying about what people would think if I was saying this. Like, I wrote a song about baseball. [Laughs] I did, and it was cool. I googled all the different home runs, and I googled baseball things, what they mean. It's just fun; you write about stuff you wouldn't usually write about. I like that. It's fun, it's carefree. I don't have to worry about it too much, I can have fun with it. I enjoyed that a lot, and I'm definitely trying to do more things like that.
I'm sensing a theme here, with the music videos based on movies, starting to work on movie soundtracks...
Yeah, I'm really getting into it. [Laughs] I love visuals, so I can't help myself.
The 2014 ESPY Awards are here. So far, Drake seems to be doing a good job at his hosting duties. Before the ceremony kicked off at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles, Iggy Azalea took the stage to perform her hit single "Fancy." Sticking to the Clueless theme, Iggy held it down with her backup dancers. Watch it above.
