So um, I know I haven’t been floating around the blogosphere lately, but I just had to get this post out of my system before it’s old news. I mean, technically my girl crush has been on the radar for some time now, what with her new music video being viewed 14.5 million times. I think 10 million of those views were by me. Whoops!
When female rapper Iggy Azalea’s new single “Fancy” was released, Tumblr was all a twitter. I’m sure Twitter was all a twitter too, but like, I only have so much time in the day to read other people’s thought processes.
This Australian blonde bombshell really hooked me with her deep-toned rhymes and slick moves. I almost fainted when I clicked on her music vid and saw that it was inspired by one of my favorite movies of all time, Clueless. I’m cultured, I swear. To be perfectly honest, the music really fits the 90’s vibe that Clueless gives off. Many might disagree, but I’m going to be extreme and say that it’s the work of an artistic genius.
I did some research on Miss Azalea because I refused to believe that was her birth name. I was right. No one would name their daughter Iggy. But apparently some people do name their daughters Amethyst. That’s Iggy’s given name (according to Wiki, of course). She might be the first person in the history of time to have a stage name that’s more normal than her actual name. Little fun fact for ya.
The best thing about her perhaps, is that her appearance doesn’t fit her voice quality. At least in my humble opinion. It’s kind of fun to listen to her music first and then watch the music video afterwards. White female rappers are few and far between so it’s really refreshing to see her and listen to her skill set. Besides Iggy Azalea, the only white female rapper that I know of is myself. I usually perform behind steering wheels and in showers. Look out, Lil’ Lil might be coming to a venue near you!

She looks so cool! I will have to check her out. =) And seeing that she did her video inspired on Clueless then she’s already cool in my book!
Yeah defs check her out. She has a few music videos online but I think her album is coming out soon. Yeah, you can’t go wrong with anything Clueless inspired! 😀
Never heard of her but, yeah, she’s ‘aight.
Pretty fly for a white girl, huh?
And I’m still in the Murda Bizness
I can hold you down, like I’m givin’ lessons in physics
Tight lyrics. Iggy is keeping it real, just like myself. 8)
Definitely one of my favorite lyrics of hers. Haha yeah I feel like you and Iggy would hit it off big time 😉
I like original and unique sounds when it comes to rap too. I’ll have to check her out as this is the first time I’ve hear of her.
Yeah she’s pretty cool. I like “Fancy” and “Change Your Life” the best out of the songs she’s released. But I think her album is coming out soon so that should be interesting.
Oh I see why you like her. She’s completely original and Clueless is one of my all time favorite movies too. I also love Romy and Michelle. I’ll be watching for Lil Lil on youtube!
Ohh I love Romy and Michelle too! That movie is one of the reasons why I can’t wait for my high school reunion! Haha. Look out for Lil’ Lil!
Hahaha! I would love to be a fly on the wall for that! In the meantime we’ll have to think of something wonderful you’ve invented!
Interesting choice, Lily!
Thank ya! She’s a weird one. That’s why I love her.
