Grand Hustle rapper Iggy Azalea is no stranger to social networking and the power of popular photo-enhancing tool Instagram as she posted a steamy backside photo over the weekend and quickly deleted it.
Despite her swift deletion, Iggy’s photo continues to circulate online entering into the work week.
Up-and-coming rapper Iggy Azalea cannot get away from her Instagram addiction! The young Australian emcee performed at the iconic Roxy Theatre in Los Angeles last night and posted pictures throughout the night. Azalea debuted her new song, “Me, Myself, My Money” and performed her hit song “Pu$$y” and other fan favorites. Most of the photos were of her performing and of her “Azaleans,” but she also took a picture of her behind for the world to see. After the show, Azalea tweeted, “the camera captures everything BUT the moment.” It might have been a play on words, but she later deleted the picture of her backside.nWhatever the reason, we love Azalea’s Instagram prowess.

Outside of backside shots, Iggy recently dished out her love for the late Tupac Shakur.
“We would go to their house because their parents were the coolest parents [who] let you do whatever you wanted,” Iggy said about hanging out with some older local boys. “They played a Tupac song, ‘Baby Don’t Cry’ from the Outlawz. I just love that song. I don’t know what it was. It made me go home and type it in and nothing could ever make me do that before. And then that was when I knew I liked rap. I knew I loved rap music, I knew I loved to sing along to the words. It takes a while before you have the guts to put yourself in their shoes and think this is something I could actually do.” (Sucker Free)
Back in February, the hip-hop rookie performed a Pac-inspired record.
Australian upstart Iggy Azalea returned to Hollywood for her first live performance in town since she announced plans for her major-label debut, The New Classic, due later this year. Sporting a black Tupac-emblazoned tank top (or was it a bodysuit?) and her signature flying ponytail, Iggy launched into her late-night set at Hollywood’s Dim Mak Studios with “Hello”, the first track off her buzzy Ignorant Art mixtape. Through a raucous 45-minute set, she managed to throw “Superior P***y” t-shirts — and cash — into the crowd, invited fans on-stage for a dance-off, and unveiled a new song, “Picture Me Rollin'”. Catch video of her busting out the new Tupac-inspired jam. (Idolator)
A few months ago, she talked about restructuring her Interscope Records deal to join Grand Hustle.
“I didn’t know I was gonna sign to Grand Hustle,” Azalea told MTV News, explaining how she managed to stick with both imprints. “There’s no way I thought that would happen. Not because I didn’t like them, just because my deal was all sewn up, and I restructured the whole thing.” The 21-year-old Australian rapper revealed that Interscope chairman Jimmy Iovine was “cool with it,” helping her tailor a new deal that pleased all parties involved. “[Jimmy] likes Tip, and they’re good friends, so it worked out,” she explained. “But it made everybody so confused, because everyone was like, ‘I thought she was signed to Interscope; Grand Hustle is with Atlantic.'” (MTV)
