Bye Girl – Iggy Azalea’s Arena Tour Is Officially Canceled

What’s that? Yes, Iggs cancelled her big North American arena tour called “The Iggy Azalea Great Escape Tour” which was postponed in March until this fall, but now it’s being nixed altogether for reasons no one is entirely too sure except that maybe she’s donezo?
The 24 year old Australian rapper tweeted this as a…

#Problematic: Amy Schumer’s Feminism, Iggy And Britney’s “Pretty Girls” & Miley’s Happy Hippies

Congratulations, y’all (just imagine Connie Britton saying that). We’ve made it to lucky week 13. I bet our cycles our synced up by now! Let’s all go get a tattoo of a dead bat or something, and shoot fireball. Let’s pretend we’re in college again. Let’s get drunk and apply to nursing school. If you…

The announcement is appropriately hashtagged #WeCantMakeThisShitUp, but I mean, can’t they? They could most certainly make this shit up.

“SNL” & Kate McKinnon Flawlessly Spoof Iggy Azalea

Australian accents are among the hardest, I think, English-speaking accents to mimic, but you know what’s even more difficult? Mimicking Iggy Azalea’s Australian-meets-Southern-rapper accent — but current “SNL” queen Kate McKinnon nailed it on Saturday’s episode, in which she and Sasheer Zamata spoofed Iggy and Azealia Banks’ feud. SO hip-hop, mate.

#Problematic: Taylor Swift Has “Style,” Beyonce Has Pores & Iggy Azalea Bails On Twitter

Good morrow, readers. This week I have to be honest that I am an unreliable narrator. I think since it’s February, winter weather has been a thing for a while, but it just finally reared its head in my part of the country, where I was told I would be safe. Humans were snowed in,…

If Assholes Won’t Stop Caring About Cellulite, Women Will Just Have To Do It For Them

Iggy Azalea is quitting Twitter, and normally I wouldn’t care, but this tweet really got me:
Just got back from a great vacation, came online and saw apparently it’s shocking and unheard of to be a woman and have cellulite. Lol.

The Police Aren’t “Under Siege,” They’re Under Criticism

The shooting of two NYPD officers this weekend was tragic, but to blame it on Black Lives Matter protestors has no basis. The police aren’t “under siege,” they’re under criticism. [Slate]

An Open Letter To Iggy Azalea Regarding Her Appropriation Of Black Culture While Ignoring The Issues Faced By The Black Community

Dear Iggy Azalea,

I was a Black child of the ’90s who grew up on hip-hop and R&B. Some of my favorite adolescent memories were set to the soundtrack of the likes of Toni Braxton, Tupac, Sade, Lauryn Hill and Nas. I may have only been seven-years-old when DJ Kool announced, “Let Me…

Snoop Dogg Is Dissing Iggy Azalea On Instagram And Neither One Of Them Is Worth Defending

Snoop Dogg (Lion?) has been taking to Instagram this week to rip on Iggy Azalea’s looks, call her a bitch and a cunt, and try to feed into the rumors about a fight between Azalea and Nicki Minaj. Snoop’s been repeatedly comparing her looks to Marlon Wayans’ character in “White Chicks” and put up a…

In Case You Were Wondering, This Is What A Bluegrass Cover Of Iggy Azalea Sounds Like

I never thought I’d hear a bluegrass rendition of any Iggy Azalea song, let alone “Black Widow,” which is the total opposite of what I picture when I think of the genre. That said, I’m kind of loving this. [Tastefully Offensive]…

Presidential lip dubs: they just never get old. Here’s President Obama dubbing one of the songs of summer — “Fancy” by Iggy Azalea. But wait: does this mean the president actually said “bitch” in a speech? [Flavorwire]…

T.I. & Iggy Azalea’s “No Mediocre” Collaboration Is A Bunch Of Sexist Crap

Hip-hop is probably my favorite genre of music, but goddamn, sometimes the lyrics can go and ruin a perfectly great song. Such is the case with T.I.’s collaboration with Iggy Azalea, “No Mediocre,” which musically is cool and catchy and would be super fun to dance to — if not for the lyrics being painfully…

Finally, The Iggy Azalea/Reba McEntire “Fancy” Mashup We’ve Been Waiting For

Iggy Azalea made waves when she released her single, “Fancy,” along with a “Clueless”-themed music video, but for many of us, there was and always will be only one song named “Fancy,” and that’s the Reba McEntire country classic. Thanks to music mashup genius Chambaland, we never have to choose between the two again. Liste…

I’m, Like, Totally Buggin’ Over Iggy Azelea’s Homage To “Clueless”

Australian rapper/sing Iggy Azalea is apparently having a bit of a love affair with American pop culture from the ’90s. In addition to her tribute to the incredible glamour of the movie “Showgirls,” Iggy and her pal Charli XCX have now put out this homage to Amy Heckerling’s “Clueless.” It is, as Cher would say,…
