Hustle Gang’s Iggy Azalea and Roc Nation hottie Rita Ora kept things steaming after hooking up for a joint Made In America performance this holiday weekend in Los Angeles.
The duo teamed up for their set in the City of Angels for Jay’s annual music festival.
Made in America never sounded better, err, looked better, than when Iggy Azaelea and Rita Ora brought their Aussie-Britty hot stage and concert show to Los Angeles over the Labor Day weekend. I can’t comment much as to the music, but as to the two young pop divas prancing around the stage in showy costumes and pretending to kiss and fondle each other, well, you know how I feel about even pretend lesbionics. (Egotastic!)
Last week, Rita and Iggy teamed up to perform their “Black Widow” song at the MTV Video Music Awards.
With partner-in-song Rita Ora joining her on stage, Iggy treated fans at home and in Los Angeles to a fiery performance of her “Fancy” follow-up, “Black Widow” — already making waves in its own right. “You used to be, thirsty for me/ But now you wanna be set free/ This is the web, web that you weave/ So baby now rest in peace,” Rita sings on the song — and the two ladies brought those lyrics to life during their VMA performance.

Iggy has kept busy this summer, notably hooking up with music star Jennifer Lopez for their new “Booty” remix.
Jennifer Lopez and Pitbull’s collaborations usually don’t disappoint and “Booty” was another example of a good musical teaming up by the two friends, however Iggy Azalea just makes a whole lot more sense on “Booty” than Pitbull. I mean, both J.Lo and I-G-G-Y are females – the song is about female empowerment (at least of those proud to have big booties) – and have big butts too, so it’s only right they get to star in “Booty.” (Direct Lyrics)
Hustle Gang leader T.I. recently spoke out on Iggy’s critics.
“That pisses me off,” said T.I. “Simply because they don’t have any real substantial grounds. ‘I don’t like them.’ Why? ‘Just ’cause.’ What you mean just ’cause? Since when do you get the right to judge people? Who died and made you the emperor of Egypt? That kind of sh*t and then the things that they accuse her of, like the racist stuff. That’s not even her. That’s not even in her. Me knowing her, knowing where she comes from–for real, the whole racist thing, that’s American–we forget, she’s not American. So the whole Black, white, color divided thing, it isn’t a part of her DNA like it is here in America.” (Complex)
