Iggy Azalea Says Miley Cyrus Copied Her Twerking In Paper: “She Watched My Videos Online!”
Iggy Azalea has a bone, well, actually more like a twerk, to pick with Miley Cyrus. The 23-year-old rap phenom accuses the 20-year-old “Can’t Be Tamed” singer of stealing her signature move in the November 2013 issue of PAPER.
“I’ve been doing that onstage for two-and-a-half years,” Azalea says of Miley’s booty-popping dance of choice. “She probably fucking watched my videos online and decided to try it. People just wanna see my butt. We’d been doing that dance-off at the shows, but no one put it online. At the Bowery [Ballroom in New York City], they did.”
When Iggy isn’t shaking her assets on stage, the Australian native flaunts her natural beauty as a model for Wilhelmina and in mid-2012 she became the face of Levi’s Jeans.”I was happy to get that job,” she says, “but it pisses me off that my iTunes biography says I’m a ‘model-turned-rapper.’ I was never a model before. Why do people have it in their stupid fucking fantasies that I was a model? I would’ve loved to have been a supermodel, but I can’t fucking fit the sizes. I’m a six, not a zero.”
Despite her aversion to the title “model,” Iggy does have a love of fashion. “I used to go to high-end stores in L.A. when I was broke,” she says of her days cleaning housing as a teenager. “I’d pretend I was a rich white lady, and I’d try things on, and they’d bring me champagne. Now Pucci has a mannequin made exactly to my size, just for me, so they can make me dresses. It blows my mind that somewhere in Pucci-land, there’s a mannequin of me.”
She may have won over the designers at Pucci, but Iggy insists she has trouble nabbing the attention of the opposite sex. “Guys don’t approach me,” she says. “I have to approach them. It’s so annoying. I think I must have a bitchy face, because guys don’t want to talk to me. It’s true, I have a mean face.”
