Iggy Azalea Covers Cosmopolitan Australia, Addresses BET Awards Shade


Iggy Azalea is keeping it “Fancy” on her latest magazine cover!

The blonde bombshell received some love from her Australian roots as she covered Cosmopolitan Australia for their upcoming August 2014 issue dressed in a futuristic one-piece that features cut-outs on the chest and sides.

Besides looking gorgeous on the cover of Cosmopolitan, the Australia-native also has another accomplishment worth bragging about.  Her hit single “Fancy” became the longest leading No.1 single by a female rapper. The summer smash has held the No. 1 spot for six weeks in a row, surpassing Lil Kim’s previous record of five weeks with “Lady Marmalade.” Iggy took to Twitter to express her excitement about the career milestone.

“Pretty good way to start July! Lots of motivation to continue to work hard,” she wrote. “I’m putting all my energy into black widow now & hoping you’ll love the video for it as much as you all enjoyed fancy. eek! I’m nervous but excited.”

Meanwhile, the Aussie rapper had to address some less than positive media. Social media has been buzzing about Nicki Minaj’s alleged shade towards Iggy since the BET Awards, which Minaj  denies and tried to clean up later.

Taking to Instagram yesterday (July 2), Iggy finally broke her silence on the matter and clarified that it is “the only time I’m ever going to refer to this again.”

Here’s what she had to say:

I have to say the general explosion of pettiness online in the last few days is hard to ignore and honestly…lame.

If I had won the BET award that would’ve been great but it wasn’t my year and I don’t mind – so you shouldn’t either.

Generally speaking I’m unbothered by anything that “happened” at the BET awards and just feel worn out by everyone trying to make me have wars with people all the time.

Anyone who wishes me well is welcome in my life and those who don’t can’t get any more of my time. I hate to see everyone exhausting themselves on my behalf over things that I’m still not 100% sure even exist and don’t matter. just let it go.

Well there you have it! Iggy has spoken and it was done so tastefully.
