Favorite Quotes from Iggy Azalea

“I always say: ‘Share your happiness with the world, give other people that happiness and let it come back,’ but some things make me question it. I don’t know if I want some people to know that I am happy. Think a lot of people want to take it away from you, and that’s really scary.” – Iggy Azalea 

“It’s different, it’s weird to say, ‘She’s a white rapper or she can’t do this because she’s this color – this color does this thing. These are the boxes we have, this is what it is, don’t try to change it.’ And it’s crazy to me because I’m just not from that world, so I can’t really rock with it all the way.” – Iggy Azalea

“I realize that artists can become fatigued from touring the world over. But if it’s your first major tour, you’ve got to buckle down and do it, said Sami Jarroush, a music blogger for Consequence of Sound. Short of suffering from an actual medical emergency, saying you’re going to stop performing so you can take a vacation isn’t exactly going to make you look good in the eyes of however many fans you have left.” – Iggy Azalea 

“At the very worst, if I have a short-lived career, at least I could say I sparked a change – that I inspired some leniency in what people accept in hip-hop. And if I have a very long career and can be gyrating in a leotard at 35, that would be great.” – Iggy Azalea 

“My family came to Australia on the First Fleet. My family’s been in that country for a long time, over 100 years. If your family’s lived in Australia for a long time, everyone has a little bit of [Aborigine blood]. I know my family does because we have an eye condition that only Aboriginal people have.” – Iggy Azalea

    I think Iggy Azalea is a shining star that has not for one second stopped burning. She is the epitome of professionalism in everything that she does. The way that she treats people including her fans is top notch. She deserves every ounce of success because she clawed her way there and never stopped.
    This industry can be tough and she has taken it by the horns and conquered it. She still has a lot to give us. I for one cannot wait to hear what else she has to bring us. I was shocked to hear how little her net worth is. Im sure her label get much more of her than she gets of herself. Shame.
