Hustle Gang’s Iggy Azalea recently discussed footage leaking online of renowned parody performer Weird Al Yankovic bombarding her and requesting to spoof the hottie’s “Fancy” anthem. #WeirdIggy
In Iggy’s opinion, she could make some bank if Weird Al pursues putting his own spin on her track.
Yankovic ambushed Iggy backstage at a concert earlier this month — telling her he wants to record one of her songs — the 24-year tells us she was flattered. Iggy says she’ll benefit financially because she’ll get a licensing fee for use of the song. Not true. Since it’s a parody … Al doesn’t have to pay a fee. He may, however, decide to give her a cut, but that is not a licensing fee — that’s called the goodness of his heart. (TMZ)
Over the past few weeks, Iggy’s addictive single has remained a chart-topper.
On a week when Iggy Azalea (Def Jam) and Ariana Grande (Republic) once again held on to the #1-2 slots, two records made major moves: Sam Smith’s “Stay With Me” (Capitol; 167k, +62%, #10-3) and Florida Georgia Line’s “This Is How We Roll” (Republic Nashville; 130k, +130%, #23-7). 1. Iggy Azalea f/Charlie XCX, “Fancy” – 263k 2. Ariana Grande f/Iggy Azalea, “Problem” – 214k 3. Sam Smith, “Stay With Me” – 167k 4. Magic!, “Rude” – 162k 5. Jason Derulo f/Snoop Dogg, “Wiggle” – 146k (HITS Daily Double)
Cameras spotted Iggy last week enjoying her birthday in Mexico.
Iggy Aazlea has been putting in work, but she took a little time off to celebrate her success with her boyfriend Nick Young. The bikini-clad rapper and her Lakers boo enjoyed some R&R in Mexico, where they also celebrated their birthdays (Iggy turns 24 on Saturday, while Nick just turned 29). The hot couple soaked up the sun aboard their private yacht and chilled poolside in their villa while overlooking the ocean. (Rap-Up)
A couple months ago, Iggy spoke on her sexual lyrics and denied having any intimate feelings toward women.
“I know I talk about women a lot, and I think women are beautiful and I like talking about them, but I didn’t want people to misconstrue that and think that I was being a fake lesbian. It wasn’t a, “Don’t think I’m gay,” but more so me being like, “Hey, I’m not a fake lesbian.” Straight’s cool too, you know! It’s almost like gay nowadays is so trendy that people want to be gay and then they don’t. I’m not gay. I love gay people, but I’m straight. I don’t wanna kiss girls. I’m not into girls. I appreciate women, and I like rapping about them, but in case you thought I was a lame person pretending to be gay, um, I’m not.” (PrideSource)
