I’m literally just going to count the ways.
ONE: Iggy Azalea’s first two singles were number one and number two simultaneously. There has been one other artist to do that. The Fucking Beatles.
TWO: Iggy Azalea is 24 years old. She was born in 1990! She grew up in a town of about 2,000, in a house her dad built himself with mud bricks. At 16, she dropped out of school and cleaned hotel rooms until she earned enough money to go to Miami. She told her parents it was a vacation, then when she got there, told them she was staying to become a rapper. OG.
THREE: She’s an Australian, pale-skinned, FEMALE RAPPER. I absolutely love female rappers. Why? Because the point of being a rapper is to be a BAMF. A female BAMF is the dream.
FOUR: Did I mention she moved to Miami when she was SIXTEEN. She worked her ass off and got noticed. She started hanging out with T.I. They have like five songs together. If you don’t know how great T.I. is, please reference this link HERE.
FIVE: She opened for Beyoncé on the Asian and Australian legs of the Mrs. Carter tour. Beyoncé is powerful and she runs her empire. If an artist is opening for her, it’s because Beyoncé likes them.
SIX: Dat BOOTY. Seriously. Google that one yourselves.
SEVEN: Girl is from rural Australia and she loves American pop culture just as much as I do.
EIGHT: This Line – “Valley Girls givin’ blow jobs for Louboutins. Whatcha call dat? Head over heels?”
NINE: She has passed Lil’ Kim as the female rapper with the longest-leading number one single on the Billboard Hot 100. LIL’ KIM.
TEN: She’s dating SWAGGY P.
