Iggy Azalea Says Her Biggest Critics Are ‘Outside Of Music’

/ July 1, 2014

Despite getting some possible shade thrown her way at the BET Awards by Nicki Minaj, Iggy Azalea claims she has never been deemed as an inauthentic rapper.

In a recent sit down with The Guardian, the Aussie bombshell revealed that she’s never had any artists question her music capability. “I have never had any musicians tell me that I wasn’t authentic for being white and Australian,” Azalea said. The “Fancy” spitter went on further to explain that “people who write about music—or who are outside it in some way” are her biggest critics.

When hailed as the woman “running hip hop” by Forbes, the Barb weighed in during an interview with The Breakfast Club, saying, “Listen, all Forbes needs to worry about is my finances and when I’m going to be selling Myx Fusion for $250 million. That’s all they need to worry about. We rely on hip hop journalism and blogs for that kind of information. So we appreciate that, but no thank you.”
