Australian rapper Iggy Azalea recently relayed that she had been the victim of sexual assault at shows, particularly by fans in her audience whilst crowd-surfing.
Sitting down with Hot 97 a few days ago, Iggy went a little more into detail about her experiences in that realm.
“It’s funny because we were talking about on my tour, I’m only doing 2,000 cities but I have to have barriers even if it’s only 200 people because people try to finger me,” she said when asked about the sexual assault.
Azalea would later say that she also is often harassed on social media and believes that that is also not OK.
“I will get lurk tweets a week before my show, ‘I’m about to go to the Iggy Azalea show and I’m going to finger her,'” she said. “And I’m like please don’t because that’s a violation, I don’t actually like that stuff. Like I’ve got a song called ‘Pussy’ and they’ll be like, ‘ I know what she wants, she wants these two fingers.’
Iggy also said she wears multiple layers of clothes on her bottom half so that there’s “no way she can be intruded.” Later in the interview she talked about her sexual preferences with boyfriend Nick Young and the difference between perception and reality in her music.
Iggy Azalea recently released her newest LP, The New Classic and is expected to sell between 50,000 and 55,000 units in its first week of availability, according to HITS Daily Double. HipHopDX rated it a 2.5 out of 5.
