Cop a gander at Iggy Azalea!
The ‘Fancy’ rapstress may have recently expressed disappointment in the commercial response to her comeback album, ‘In My Defense’ (click here to read), but that’s certainly not slowed her promo grind in its support.
Case in point: the Rap diva’s blazing the cover of ‘Cosmpolitan’s September 2019 issue. Taking to Brooklyn to shoot the Eric Ray Davidson-snapped set of photos, the pics that accompany the feature see Azalea striking sultry poses poolside while the interview story details that of a growing artist who has learned from the mistakes of the past.
With age 30 just a year away, look inside to read how Iggy’s embracing the future of her career, personal life, and more.
AZALEA ON GROWING UP:
“There’s a part of me that doesn’t necessarily dispute everything I’ve said,” Iggy says. “But I definitely feel like, Who the fuck is that person? It’s that time in your life when you think, I’m a real grown-up and I know everything, and you can’t tell me shit. The older I get, the less I fucking know about anything.”
AZALEA ON BEING AN INDEPENDENT ARTIST:
“I guess I’m sort of my own boss—well, I am my own boss,” she says. “I should say that with authority: I am my own boss.”
“You get as many shots as you are able to persevere for in life, no matter what you do,” she says. “You get as many chances as you’re willing to sit there and fucking really fight for tooth and nail. And I’m not going to stop fighting for a second chance until somebody fucking gives me one, and then I’m not going to fuck it up.”
AZALEA ON CULTURAL APPROPRIATION:
“You could ask one person of the same race, ‘Does this affect you?’ and they will say yes,” she explains. “But another person will say no. They could be from the same place, same everything, but have different perspectives about it.”
“I’m still going to make the same type of music and still be ridiculous and larger than life,” she says. “So I can’t be that fucking sorry about it.”
AZALEA ON WHITE PRIVILEGE:
…I wanted to talk so much about my experiences of things I didn’t have, and I think it felt like I wasn’t acknowledging that there is white privilege and there is institutionalized racism,” she says. “It seemed to a lot of people like I was living in this bubble or unaware of all these things that people have to experience.”
