PVOTD: “Beat Down” by Steve Aoki & Angger Dimas Feat. Iggy Azalea

“There’s a party on your face, and I’m about to dance on it.  Bout to dance on it.  Bout to dance on it.”

This is two years old, but it’s new to me.  I love it so much.  It’s hard to pick favorites with Iggy, but this is a contender.

PVOTD: “Grown Woman” by Beyoncé

The other day, my mom emailed me an article about how Iggy Azalea’s career is over and how she’s racist and homophobic, blah, blah, blah.  My mom was concerned, because I love Iggy (I wrote a blog about it). The article made me laugh a little bit, then I thought of this Beyoncé video.  The song is pretty self explanatory.  The video is INCREDIBLE and one of my favorites of all time.  It features Baby Beyoncé, Beauty Queen Yoncé, and even Amazon Yoncé.  I could, and do, watch it all day.

Point is, everyone is a critic.  Iggy is a racist, Miley is a whore, Meghan Trainor is ruining America.  Haters gonna hate.  Meanwhile, these bitches be like…

Everywhere I go they say, “It’s IGGY Season.”

I’m starting to like this trend of pop stars reissuing their debut albums (i.e. Katy Perry’s Teenage Dream: The Complete Confection).  Because really, it’s them saying: “I’m famous now, let me put this together the way I wanted to in the first place, with better producing and guest stars.”  It’s the best of the best of what she’s done so far, plus five new songs that are each too legit to quit.

Well done, Ms. Azalea.  Bow down to a Goddess.

Have You Seen This Yet?

If you haven’t seen the video for “Booty” by Jennifer Lopez featuring Iggy Azalea, I highly recommend it.  It’s quite possibly one of the most ridiculous videos I’ve ever seen.  So much booty.  Nevertheless, I love it and will watch it at least ten more times this week.

How Do I Love Iggy Azalea? Let Me Count The Ways.

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.
