Iggy Azalea Is A ’50s Pin-Up For ‘Complex’ Magazine, Talks Wild Child Antics & That Accent

13fca5b53fddc1116b2ba010f4f6c4b4 Iggy Azalea Is A ’50s Pin Up For ‘Complex’ Magazine, Talks Wild Child Antics & That Accent

Iggy Azalea channels iconic ’50s pin-up girl Bettie Page for Complex magazine. And she has the bangs, body and fiery attitude to pull it off perfectly. The Aussie femcee goes nude on the cover (well, her privates are covered by some strategically placed flowers) but the rest of the colorful shoot is wonderfully kitsch and cute. It’s a strong contrast to the hard-hitting cover story.

In the interview, Iggy opens up about the criticism she receives for rapping in an American accent. “If you’re mad about it and you’re a black person then start a rap career and give it a go too,” she suggests. “Why is it such a big deal? This is the entertainment industry. It’s not politics. You should be more concerned about the message, not the voices saying it.”

However, the barbs do get to her. “Of course I’ve asked myself, ‘Does that make me fake?’ I don’t think the voice makes me fake — it makes me an artist,” she tells the magazine. “Voice is my medium. I should have creative rein to do whatever the fuck I want with it.” As for the rest of the interview, she doesn’t paint a pretty picture of hometown Mullumbimby or her wild child antics.

“When I was 13 I got a fake ID,” she admits. “I’d go out, get hammered off my face in nightclubs because I thought that made me an adult, meet older guys who thought I was older, and go fuck them.” Props to her for keeping it real.
