Iggy Azalea stopped by Power 106 LA’s The Cruz Show this week to discuss a number of things, including the recent Grammys.
During her interview, she expresses her thoughts on the Grammys, why she didn’t want to win, and the criticism she received for being nominated for “Best Rap Album.”
On the Grammys: “I never thought I’d be nominated ever. I did not wanna win that award. I did not have a speech ready, my speech woulda been, ‘I don’t want it, take it.’ I’m really happy that I was thought of. I appreciate just that and I’m glad I didn’t win, because people already hate me enough. I do not need to be hated any more.”
On being nominated for Best Rap Album: “I found it kinda ironic, because I’m white, so therefore, I’m appropriating culture. But then, Eminem won it, who’s white and won it many times. They didn’t seem to say anything about that. I suspect that it was just that you disliked me.”
On sex change rumors: “I was born a man named Corey. Apparently, I got a sex change at 19 … and I told MTV that. The penis thing was interesting. I liked that, because I’m like ‘Ooh, I’m famous now. I have a penis.’ That makes me powerful (laughs). I’m like ‘I got a big penis.’ ”
On living with Nick Young: “He’s very dirty (laughs). We have a full-time house keeper.”
