Iggy Azalea complains about being “stereotyped”

iggy azalea

Have you ever seen such a spectacular display of ignorance in your life? Iggy Azalea – cultural appropriator and racist of the ages – has actually complained in a new interview about being “stereotyped” by people calling her out for putting on a fake Southern accent and basically being a caricature of whatever she thinks black people are supposed to be like in her warped ass Australian mind. I mean, guys, HOW COULD YOU?

LOL uhhhh… in what way is Iggy Azalea “complex”, “multidimensional” OR “interesting”? She’s giving advice she doesn’t follow herself. Second of all, she honestly is so dumb, she doesn’t understand the irony of her own rant. It’s totally okay for her to stereotype black people and culture and pretend to be part of it, but when actual black artists like Eve and Jill Scott (at whom this rant seems to have been directed) comment on how she should, you know, be HERSELF instead of pretending to put on an accent and take on characteristics she sees as appropriate for rap culture, then SHE is being stereotyped? The ignorance astounds.

Macklemore agrees: Iggy Azalea needs a reality check

macklemore

Macklemore may be a bit misguided (his anti-Semitic stunt has yet to be forgotten), but when it comes to race, he knows the deal. Iggy Azalea is a hot topic at the moment given her blatant disregard for all things non-white, especially considering her appropriation of black culture. What does Macklemore have to say about it? Well… he kinda sees where all the criticism is coming from, actually.

As he explained during an interview with Hot 97:

“You need to know your place in the culture. Are you contributing or are you taking? Are you using it for your own advantage or are you contributing?  You cannot disregard where this culture came from, and our place in it as white people. This is not my culture to begin with…I do believe that I need to know my place.”

“I can cuss on a record…yet parents are still like, ‘You’re the only rap I let my kids listen to. Why can I wear a hoodie and not be labeled a thug?…Why am I on Ellen’s couch?…The privilege that exists in the music industry is just a greater symptom of the privilege that exists in America. There’s no difference.”

I never thought I’d say this, but uh… Macklemore just got deep on us. It’s perhaps slightly heartening to know that the guy realizes the privileges he’s afforded as a white rapper, though I suppose it doesn’t count for much unless he does something about it.

And yeah, Iggy Azalea is definitely taking a lot from the rap community, but sure sure as shit isn’t giving anything to it.

The whole interview is (somewhat) worth watching, if you’re interested:

Iggy Azalea has been diagnosed with TMJ

iggy azalea

Perhaps it can only be described as poetic justice to hear that Iggy Azalea, she who flaps her gums far too often about shit she knows nothing about (and magically seems to be rendered deaf and dumb when it actually matters), has been diagnosed with TMJ. If you don’t know what TMJ is, it stands for temporomandibular joint dysfunction, a jaw disorder that can cause pretty significant discomfort, headaches, lockjaw, etc.

This diagnosis comes at a pretty obnoxious time, considering Iggy plans on hitting the studio to start working on her new album this month.

Unfortunately, this doesn’t mean we’ll be getting a break from her for any amount of time. She told fans she’s going to try acupuncture and take her own practitioner on tour with her this year.

Obviously I don’t wish pain and suffering on anyone, regardless of what a shitty human being they are, but there’s nothing wrong with a bit of schaudenfreude, now is there?

Newsflash: Iggy Azalea is still the worst

iggy azeala

I am not a fan of Iggy Azalea and never have been. I find her awkward, contrived, not even marginally talented and incredibly – and defiantly – ignorant of the culture which she appropriates and makes a hefty sum from on a daily basis. And before you get started on the bullshit, miss me with the “white people can rap too, what about Eminem?”-esque comments, because Eminem doesn’t put on a fake Southern accent when rapping but then speaks like the suburban, upper-middle class Australian that she is during interviews. Eminem doesn’t belittle the plight of the back community by saying shit – and I quote – “ANYWAY, now for something that actually concerns me… I’m going on tour!” (for real)… I could go on and on. Oh yeah, don’t forget the song where she refers to herself as a “runaway slave master” and cracks a whip. Like… what?

While Iggy’s biggest nemesis is Azealia Banks (who unfortunately should quit while she’s ahead sometimes so that she can get the credit she deserves for saying cogent and important things as she has during this “feud”), another major hip hop figure stepped forward in the form of Q-Tip, who very graciously tried to explain Azealia’s underlying issue to Iggy in a really kind and patient way. Far more patient than she deserves, in fact. Iggy? Well, she’s not got time for that bullshit. Why bother when her ignorance has been so heftily rewarded already?

Before you read Iggy’s utter trash below, please take a few moments to read Q-Tip’s message to her, so you can see just how dismissive and patronizing this hot ass mess of a woman actually is. Frankly, I’m almost speechless.

Right, now here we go:


Wow. It’s incredible what a high opinion Iggy Azalea has of herself and how little of a clue she has about… well, anything. The fact that she dismisses Q-Tip (who, if anything, should be the one dismissing HER dumb ass) and reduces what he as an ACTUAL hip hop artist and more importantly, as a black man, has to say as “hip-hop squares” is fucking rude as hell. The fact that she thinks she “blends musical genres” and has the nerve to reference “pop rap” like it’s a thing… girl, no. Please no.

Perhaps most importantly, she makes it clearer than ever that she REALLY doesn’t give a shit about everyone she’s offending and cannot cope with criticism other than to write the critics off as “haters”. I mean, she literally said it’s a “slow news week”. Uhhhhhhhh… I don’t think I need to point out everything that’s been going on this week, last week, the past few months… I cannot stand this shitty excuse for a human being.

Let ‘em know, Azealia:

Azealia Banks drags Iggy Azalea through the mud on race issues

iggy azalea azealia banks

Iggy Azalea, noted pseudo-southern (by way of Australia) rapper (because she was a failed popstar) and Azealia Banks, noted crazy yet talented artist, have never been friends. Azealia has always taken issue with Iggy’s appropriation of black culture – and presumably her lack of any recognizable talent – and Iggy has always sorta cowered in the corner when Azealia comes for her and starts preaching peace and unity because she clearly realises there’s no fighting that level of insanity.

Anyhoo, Azealia has gone in on Iggy yet again, this time for Iggy’s lack of outrage over the recent wave of messed up shit happening to black people. The lack of prosecution against Darren Wilson in Ferguson, the failure to indict NYPD officer Daniel Pantaleo for choke-holding 43-year-old Eric Garner TO DEATH despite the fact that, among other things, chokeholding is illegal, etc. The list goes on and on. Azealia’s point is that it’s super cool for Iggy to take on all the “cool” parts of black culture but when shit gets real, she stays quiet. Uh oh…

This is going to get long, so throwing the rest (including Iggy’s kumbaya response) behind a cut…

Jennifer Lopez featuring Iggy Azalea – ‘Booty’ (Make it stop!)

jennifer lopez iggy azalea booty

Here it is, ladies and gents – the video you certainly weren’t waiting for and probably had no idea existed. It’s Jennifer Lopez‘s new video for her song ‘Booty’, featuring Iggy Azalea. Everything about this is horrendous: the fact that a 44-year-old mother of two small children still feels the need to compete with 2o-something pop stars by singing about her ass, the fact that she felt the need to use Iggy Azalea (which… don’t get me started there), the fact that the song would be shit no matter who sung it… you get my drift.

Also, before anyone gets all up in arms, I’m not saying 44-year-old women/mothers can’t be sexy, get their ass out, whatever they want. I’m saying this is clearly a DIRECT result of her need to compete with the younger girls (who are hot messes in their own right), which I think is sad. She’s earned her fame and her name and doesn’t need to resort to this shit. Because it is shit.

But here, please judge for yourself:

I love me some J.Lo, but she needs to get a grip with this shit. We get it: you’ve got a nice ass, it’s been a major part of your career, you enjoy it and men and women looking at it do, too. But… girl, no. Seriously, full props for having an INCREDIBLE body for any age, but sit down.

Also, please get Iggy’s NON-ass out of here stat. She looks SO awkward and out of her element… most likely because she is.

Iggy Azalea’s sex tape is real, but she might have been underage when it was made

hefe wine iggy azalea

So, Iggy Azalea insisted that the sex tape Vivid has hold of and wants to put out is totally fake, but the man in the tape with “her” says she’s full of shit: the tape is real, Iggy knew about and she was totally at the age of legal consent. Apparently there were some concerns that she was underage when the tape was shot, but that doesn’t look to be the case.

From TMZ:

Houston rapper Hefe Wine is confirming he’s the one in the video being shopped to Vivid Entertainment honcho Steven Hirsch. TMZ broke the story … Iggy’s camp says she never consented to the video being shot and she might have been under 18 at the time.

But Hefe says he didn’t even meet Iggy until her 18th birthday. He adds, Iggy is “100% fully aware” of the fact they shot the sex tape.

He denies sending the sex clip to Vivid, saying his computer was stolen a couple months ago — but also makes it clear he’s interested in cutting a deal for the video to be released. He shouldn’t hold his breath — Iggy would have to sign off too, and that seems very unlikely right now.

The rapper claims he’s still tight with Iggy — and to prove it … he says he’s about to put out a new single featuring her.

Oh, dear. To be honest, I kinda figured the tape was real, but that’s neither here nor there. Why is it that people think they can capitalize on what was a PRIVATE moment between two people who made this as something personal in their relationship? Sure, I don’t understand what on earth would ever make you want to make a sex tape, but no shade here – do what you do. But to then try to humiliate and exploit a girl who is NOT a porn star and in fact was just getting it on with a dude she was presumably seeing at the time just seems really, really scummy.
