ON-THE-GO: MTV EUROPE MUSIC AWARDS 2013
IGGY AZALEA x PAPER Magazine!
Rap chick Iggy covers the latest edition of Paper. Check it out. Pick it up. Do something! Ha!
What’s the biggest fight you’ve had since signing to a major label?
I have to fight about visuals all the time because they don’t understand why I would be sexual in some contexts but not in others. They’ll say, “But you twerked in ‘Work’ and had your ass out, so why won’t you show your butt in this magazine?” I went topless in my new video for “Change Your Life.” I painted my nipples red and I know that will fuck them up. I don’t consider it exploiting myself because everything I do is conceptual. It’s not just tits out for tits out. I consider it art. I’m only ever in a state of undress if it’s for my own project. I would never do it for your magazine because it doesn’t empower me to be naked in your magazine.

I’m really trying to get into Miss Iggy. I’m not someone who forces anything. However, I am someone who’s a strong supporter of women doing their thing in this crazy business of music. I’ve only listened to a couple of records and watched a couple videos so we’ll see. My followers definitely love her and that’s dope. I came across an interview so I thought I’d share. Iggy recently sat for an exclusive interview with highsnobiety, where she spoke about her entrance into the game, her hustle to maintain, the Eminem comparisons, her recent trip to India and on being a white female rapper in the business. Check out the excerpts below and be sure to read the entire interview at the source Highsnob! xo @rozOonTheGo
You are very much from the YouTube generation and your songs such as “Pussy” and “Two Times” went viral there first. What would you have done if YouTube wasn’t around?
Well, I think I would have got the job done anyway. I probably would have mingled more with people. I’m not a very social person so I would have gone out and networked more than I usually prefer to.
Or maybe sold CDs or mixtapes out the back of your car trunk like Jay-Z did?
I don’t think I would have made a mixtape at all, actually. Because to get a CD in someone’s hands is one thing but then getting them to actually put it into a CD player and listen to it is another. The chance is slim to none. If the Internet isn’t available to you, just as a random bit of advice about what I believe, I don’t think you should spend any money or time printing CDs or mixtapes and passing them around – you need to do open mics and network. It’s better to sing or rap your own mixtape on the street and get known that way.

EXCERPTS FROM A RECENT EVE INTERVIEW:
On what she feels as though she, Lil Kim and Missy Elliot will bring back to the rap game:
It’s kind of a good look for us [Missy & Kim] to all come out at the same time because we do really like each other and support each other. I feel like, I always represented — I feel like I am a regular chick that got a dope job. I got lucky. I represent the around the way chicks. I feel like right now in music, with Nicki out, she’s not representing all females. With me coming out and Nicki coming out, she represents a certain type of chick and with Kim coming out, she represents a certain type of chick that may feel like they don’t have a certain voice that’s speaking for them and that represents them.
On female rappers she is feeling:
I like Azealia Banks. I think her style is dope. If you listen to her lyrics, she knows how to wordplay and I think that’s cute. I’m not really into the Iggy Azalea chick. I can’t really f-ck with her music, but her look is crazy. I just can’t believe it (her music).
On which female emcees she would do a record with:
I would definitely have to get Missy. I would definitely have to do Kim because I never got to do a record with Kim. Azealia Banks, I like her. A lot of people want me to hate on Nicki and say crazy things about her. I ain’t got nothing to say about her. Until somebody names me by name, then I don’t feel like nobody is talking about me. I wouldn’t have a problem putting her on a record just because … ‘why not’. I try to be nice.
All I have to say is, it’s about to get verrrrrry interesting! xxoo @RozOonTheGo
You’ve been criticized for being overly sexual.
To a lot of people, a powerful, sexy woman is vulgar. When I first came out people said, she only raps about her vagina. I’m not a vagina rapper! [Laughs.] I talk about many other things.
With a song called “Pu$$y” it’s hard not to be considered sexual.
The video for that could’ve been way more sexual. I held back because I didn’t think people could handle it. [Laughs.]
In the “My World” video you dressed up as a cheerleader. That was a short skirt you had on…
I didn’t mean for the skirt to be that short. [Laughs.] I got that off eBay. I knew my ass was hanging out of it but whatever. When we were shooting the video the police were like, “We heard you guys were filming a porno.” They thought we were filming Bang Bus. [Laughs.] I told them, “I’m a sexy boxer lady and these are my two cheerleading friends—this is art, guys!”
