Published: Thursday 26th Jun 2014 by David

With five weeks spent atop the ‘Billboard Hot 100′, Iggy Azalea‘s ‘Fancy’ seems to have found a new friend in the ‘BET Awards‘, who have asked the Pop lyricist to perform at this year’s event!

Details on her set below…

Set to push sales of her debut album ‘The New Classic’ to higher ground, her performance at the award show will come as ‘Fancy’s follow-up ‘Black Widow‘ impacts US radio, and after her ‘Universal’ sister Nicki Minaj was added to the show’s line up.

On the 20-something’s performance, BET teases:

Coming from the land down under to pursue her dreams of being a superstar, Iggy Azalea made the long trek and has thus far made her mark on the rap game. We’re excited that she’ll grace the BET Awards ’14 stage this year. Aren’t you excited, too?

We are!

For, putting ‘Classic‘s unfortunate sales aside, it’s fantastic to see the show acknowledging the rapper’s impact on Pop music with the #1 single, and- by celebrating her success- shine a light on just how much Nicki Minaj‘s unrivalled run has reignited interest in lady lyricists!

    • RadioactiveRita June 26, 2014

      Rita shouldn’t really be associating with racist trash like Iggy anyway, so nah.

      • Molly June 26, 2014

        But isn’t she sucking Justin biebers d***? the self shade is real.

      • RadioactiveRita June 26, 2014

        Let me worry about Rita’s mouth while you worry about Iggy’s feelings when she has to explain why she said Aboriginal people don’t like to live in houses.

      • Molly June 26, 2014

        I don’t hate on her…

      • K June 26, 2014

        exactly, they run to Nicki post talking all types of trash, and when someone steps to there fav they want to fling up the white flag.

  13. Lana Del West Coat June 26, 2014

    She’s gonna show up with her black boyfriend but that won’t mean s*** once those tweets start spreading again.

  14. Minaj21 June 26, 2014

    Good for her but Nicki gotta release that album already.

    • Molly June 26, 2014

      when is it getting released sis?

      • Minaj21 June 26, 2014

        Seriously I have no f****** clue. But she gotta release it soon.

      • Molly June 26, 2014

        Hmmmmmmmm……. she should release another single first.

      • truth (The PinkShit will.surely FLOP!! Just like PissAndFLOPtion honey) June 26, 2014

  16. VisionofMimi June 26, 2014

    TGJ knew what they were doing when they called her a “20 something.” Show us your birth certificate Iggy.

    • Skyfall June 26, 2014

      DEAAATHH!!

  17. Proud-Arianator June 26, 2014

    Imagine how messy this site will get if iggy wins that award

    • Molly June 26, 2014

      She’s gonna win baby…. can’t wait for the meltdowns.

  18. FantasiaSlayrino June 26, 2014

    Three cheers for racism!

    • chile June 26, 2014

      Exactly. If they book her then they better book new black artists too like SEVYN STREETER and TINASHE.

      She went #1 b.c of white culture…. not black people. Where is Sevyn or TInashe BET ?????

  19. Skyfall June 26, 2014

    Most def Iggy is gonna win that award, even if she didn’t I would call BS. I mean Nicki hasn’t done anything to crazy this year or last year so I would understand if Iggy won but at the end if the day her album remains to struggle.

    • Minaj21 June 26, 2014

      I don’t think that she is gonna win. I mean nicki has over 72% votes and iggy has 22%

      • Skyfall June 26, 2014

        Oh the BET awards do votes, I thought they picked the winners.

      • Molly June 26, 2014

        But Iggy deserves it Nicki doesn’t she’s won 4 years in a row anyways.

      • Proud-Arianator June 26, 2014

        Where does it show the vote percentage? Just checked the site and I found nothing

      • truth (The PinkShit will.surely FLOP!! Just like PissAndFLOPtion honey) June 26, 2014

        Iggy b careful!!! Icki gon steal fron you….TOO!!!!

    • Minaj21 June 26, 2014

      So what? Nicki still deserve it.

      • Molly June 26, 2014

    • Minaj21 June 26, 2014

  20. BarBBey June 26, 2014

    I WANT Iggy to beat Nicki this year because she deserves to win the award but she better understand the blogs are gonna chew her alive when her old tweets resurface.

    • Molly June 26, 2014

      Yes boo

  21. KimmyBlancoBitch June 26, 2014

    Iggy dear, you better be prepared for the negative press you’ll get if you win. You dissed every other race under the sun and now you want to be accepted by black people? What? You’re not scared they’ll steal your car and eat your chicken anymore?

  22. Minaj21 June 26, 2014

    @Molly stop Leing. Weren’t u and the other gaga fan shading Nicki on twitter? I saw your tweets boo.

    • Molly June 26, 2014

      Mess…. I sure did but her fans tried it first just because we laughed at pills n potions dropping 20 spots in a week.

      • Minaj21 June 26, 2014

        @Molly u are acting twisted as f***. And I saw ur tweet that said “has pills n potions certified gold yet?” Well I have a question for u has the new classic sold 205k copies in the US yet after 12 weeks?

      • Skyfall June 26, 2014

        It hasn’t sold that ww

      • truth (The PinkShit will.surely FLOP!! Just like PissAndFLOPtion honey) June 26, 2014

  23. BeyBeyKing June 26, 2014

    20 something? You know something we don’t Grape Juice?

  24. Ariana’sGrand June 26, 2014

    Lool is all I can say. Sis will win the award but will be roasted for weeks afterwards because of the irony of it all.
    How much you wanna bet she’ll arrive with her man just so people won’t think she’s racist anymore.

    • Mimi carey June 26, 2014

      Ariana is a flop 🙁

      • truth (The PinkShit will.surely FLOP!! Just like PissAndFLOPtion honey) June 26, 2014

        @mimi

  26. Jason June 26, 2014

    Good luck to, Iggy! Inevitable that many people will be bitter and spew racial derogatory comments on social media.

  27. Minaj21 June 26, 2014

    Anyways congrats on her and her single but I am sick and tired of her fans calling her queen. She can be queen when she gets two platinum albums. And when she gets 12 certified singles. And gets 10 top 10 hits.

    • truth (The PinkShit will.surely FLOP!! Just like PissAndFLOPtion honey) June 26, 2014

      Come on biitch and say something negative about Iggy so i can drag u. Shyt everything i c u sayn i agree with. U boring biitch

  28. Realest June 26, 2014

    Why do y’all continue to bring up the same TIRED, regurgitated statements about the “slavery” comments.? BET (the pilar of black music on television) is clearly not bothered by it so why is ignorant a** “black twitter”? Get over it!!! As if blacks were the only slaves in history- WRONG!!!! Let her do her and that’s that.!

    • Katy B 4 RitaO June 26, 2014

      You just did her more harm than good.
      Has any other race in world history gone though what black people have? And how rude of you to assume only black people would be offended by racism. Racism should be hated by everyone and did you forget that the silly cow also dissed Native Americans and Asians too?

    • Skyfall June 26, 2014

      BET is not bothered because all they care about is money and ratings. Besides allowing someone to make ignorant statements and get away with it only hurts the artist as no one will want to use her and she could lose good endorsements because she brings shame upon their brand.

  29. HausMuthaAdele June 26, 2014

    Iggy sure looked old as f*** in those old pictures of her, they tried to say she was 18 but mutha isn’t convinced.

  30. musiclover June 26, 2014

    yall better book rihanna to at least present cause i wanna see her outfit and yall better book beyonce to perform as well….#PopTrinity

    anyone else not impressed with the line up this year

  31. AubreyOSlay June 26, 2014

    I always pay careful attention to everything TGJ writes 2bh. They deadass spill so much tea if you can read between the lines

  32. MommaDee’sWig June 26, 2014

    Black people have been made to think they have to accept it anytime someone mistreats them but Indians and Asians have not which is why they’re the ones who are gonna come for her racist ass after the show.

    • truth (The PinkShit will.surely FLOP!! Just like PissAndFLOPtion honey) June 26, 2014

      girl shut up…(continues to file nails)

  33. Molly June 26, 2014

    I see Minaj21 is trying to show out for TGJ girls but didn’t have sh!t to say to me on Twitter that’s a kiii.

    • Proud-Arianator June 26, 2014

      I’m still waiting for her to tell me where she got those vote percentages

      • nicko June 26, 2014

        Its on a radio poll for the BET awards. But iggy idnt going to win, given the fact that she has no impact on HIP HOP. N that Nicki is one of the main subjects in hip hop right now.

  34. nicko June 26, 2014

    Shes not gonna win. The award is based on the artist’s impact on Hip Hop. Nickis freestyle prompted fierce debate in the hip hop community. I cant even count how many ChiRaq remixes there are, and she just got her 50th bb hot 100 entry plus 26th top 40 hit. Iggy has no impact or influence on hip hop, none. U think shes gonna win ? Keep dreaming.

    • truth (The PinkShit will.surely FLOP!! Just like PissAndFLOPtion honey) June 26, 2014

      Nicky is a flop…and im glad yo b the one who told u. 😀

      • truth (The PinkShit will.surely FLOP!! Just like PissAndFLOPtion honey) June 26, 2014

        ‘to’

  35. coolness June 26, 2014

    Welp, this gon’ be good, lmao! Black Twitter will do the most when she shows up and all hell will break loose if she wins, lol. In more positive news, CB is set to make a surprise performance!!! 🙂

  36. nicko June 26, 2014

    Nicki is gonna win imo. I dont see how anybody else could win. But once TPP drops she gon get Grammys, VMAs, AMAs n everything.

    • truth (The PinkShit will.surely FLOP!! Just like PissAndFLOPtion honey) June 26, 2014

      She will slay icki performance…thats the real kii!!! 😀

  37. Yours Truly June 26, 2014

    I hope she wins the award for a change. Iggy keep winning

    • nicko June 26, 2014

      Her album is flopping. Keep what ?

      • truth (The PinkShit will.surely FLOP!! Just like PissAndFLOPtion honey) June 26, 2014

        Icki career is flopping oh joy!!! 😀

  38. Barbz R’ Us June 26, 2014

    I’m not even mad at her for trynna get her coin but she is trying SOOO hard to be accepted by urban radio. Especially here in NY. They RARELY play “Fancy” and usually only play T.I.’s verse in “Mediocre”.

    • truth (The PinkShit will.surely FLOP!! Just like PissAndFLOPtion honey) June 26, 2014

      They play it all the on urban stations but ive NEVER heard PissAndFLOPtion…if u were black you’d know that and also that yo fish pusssy smelln fav is a flop

  39. Austin dumas June 26, 2014

    basic b****

    • truth (The PinkShit will.surely FLOP!! Just like PissAndFLOPtion honey) June 26, 2014

      Jealous ho

  40. Navy Nick June 26, 2014

    what do u mean trying to be accepted? SHE IS WINNING HONEY! SHE IS TALENTED AND A BEAST WITH IT!!! DO NOT HATE — come slay this stage IGGY!!!! I LOVE HER ENTIRE CD!!

  41. Chileplz June 26, 2014

    Nicki fans be the first to comment on an iggy post!! Let her live!! Iggy dhould win best female hip hop,noticed I said should…because bet is all political and ish they may give nicki which would be bs!!! Iggy deserves it, she works and has proven her ass off!

  42. Rosie June 26, 2014

    Death at the Bratz claiming that Urban never plays Fancy while the latter is currently charting higher on both Urban and Rhythmic. When I went to America the other week me and a friend were listing to a hip hop station for a day, Fancy played every hour while Pills N Plastic only played once. She will win, not only because EBT is thirsty for attention but because no one really cares about Icki anymore other than her delusional fanbase and a few welfare queens.
    Iggy stays winning. Haters will remain pressed. Can’t wait for the meltdowns from Black Twitter.

  43. Ashton June 27, 2014

    Lol its bull**** if Nicki doesn’t win the award because it is labeled the “BEST Female Hip-Hop Artist.” Not the most successful. If it were successful, then Iggy would take the cake. But clearly, no…and I screamed when I read “pop lyricist” in the first paragraph.

  44. Ellie June 27, 2014

    Uggy stans are delusional kii

  45. Musika June 27, 2014

    Iggy’s nominated but won’t win. Its BET after all. I think Nicki will win but I don’t mind if it was Eve this time around!
