Is Iggy Azalea the Sarah Palin of Rap?

Brendan O'Connor · 01/20/16 01:07AM

Haha, just kidding. But who would have thought that the phrase “Iggy Azalea Sarah Palin mash-up Vine” would bring so much joy in 2016?

Gabrielle Bluestone · 02/08/15 08:20PM

Iggy Azalea, a 2015 Grammy nominee and the winner of my own personal award for bad taste in pizza, made two mistakes this week: ordering Papa John's and using her personal cell phone number for the delivery.

Allie Jones · 11/20/14 08:26AM

The butts of two almost-the-same-age performers, Jennifer Lopez and Iggy Azalea, are haunting the dreams of the ABC executives responsible for the live broadcast of the American Music Awards this Sunday. Not in a sexy way, in a scary way!

J. Lo Made Iggy Azalea Wear a Dirty Swimsuit

Caity Weaver · 09/19/14 01:10PM

As the Summer of Butts fades into golden autumn, a Bronx-born single mother has released her own "viral" butt YouTube in the hopes of capitalizing on a trend sweeping the nation like a butt abruptly dropped very low and skimmed lightly over a dance floor (or regular floor).

Iggy Azalea's "Fancy" Is the Official Song of the Summer

Rich Juzwiak · 09/03/14 02:09PM

Welp, it was easy to see this one coming: Iggy Azalea and Charli XCX's "Fancy" is the official song of the summer of 2014, according to Billboard, which derives its rankings from a combination of airplay and sales data (white privilege and black magic are, apparently, not part of the criteria or so they say). "Fancy" spent every week atop Billboard's Songs of the Summer chart (which runs from Memorial Day to Labor Day) and has sold about 3.5 million units in the U.S. It spent seven weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 (the pop chart) and provoked a lot of thoughtful discourse (some of it angry), much like last year's official song of the summer, "Blurred Lines" by Robin Thicke, T.I., and Pharrell Williams. Though they're associated with feel-good times and lazy days, our songs of the summer tend to make us think hard (or at least act like we're doing so on Twitter).

Rich Juzwiak · 07/23/14 02:30PM

Is platinum-certified, platinum-haired Australian rapper Iggy Azalea a racist, or a harmless drag queen? Is she a racist drag queen? Are all drag queens racists? Are all racists drag queens? Who knows! Well, one man does, certainly: Roots drummer/author/curator Ahmir "Questlove" Thompson. Questlove is just about the wisest music expert pop culture currently has, and in an interview with TIME, he weighs in on the woman who has set so many social-justice-inclined fingers aflutter this summer.

Weird Al Remodels Iggy Azalea's Biggest Hit in "Handy"

Jay Hathaway · 07/17/14 12:16PM

Although he doesn't legally need permission for his parodies, Weird Al is famously gracious about seeking the original artist's blessing before releasing a song, even with an album release deadline approaching. After getting no response from Iggy Azalea's people, Al flew to her show in Colorado last month to beg her for permission, TMZ reported.

Nicki Minaj Clarifies Her Iggy Azalea Shade

Rich Juzwiak · 07/02/14 12:10PM

Nicki Minaj has taken to Twitter to explain her side of her Best Female Hip Hop Artist acceptance speech from Sunday's BET Awards...or something. In case you need reminding, she seemed to be referring to her fellow nominee Iggy Azalea, when she said, "What I want the world to know about Nicki Minaj is when you hear Nicki Minaj spit, Nicki Minaj wrote it." And then, just in case that didn't sound shady enough (Iggy is said to rely on ghostwriters), Minaj said, "No shade," repeatedly while posing and grinning.
