Amethyst Amelia Kelly, better known by her stage name Iggy Azalea, is an Australian female rapper who was born in Sydney and raised in Mullumbimby. Growing up, Iggy wanted to pursue a career in hip hop music, and dropped out of high school to clean hotel rooms with her mother Tanya. She saved the hard earned cash to travel to the United States at the age of 16 in 2006. She reportedly told her parents that was going on a holiday with a friend, but ultimately decided to stay in the U.S. She earned her GED and lived in the country on a visa waiver for six years before receiving an O visa.
Iggy came a long way after moving to the U.S. with very little money. She dropped her first studio album, The New Classic, in April 2014. Just five months before her debut, she began a relationship with then-Los Angeles Lakers shooting guard Nick Young. The couple was featured in the March 2014 issue of GQ Magazine. They bought a home from Selena Gomez in Tarzana, California, and became engaged on June 1, 2015. However, Iggy didn't get a happy ending after a Snapchat video was leaked of Nick talking about cheating on his fiancée in 2016.
Iggy didn't seem to be that distraught over the breakup. She's still a blonde beauty with an incredible booty. Based on some of her pictures, she certainly showed him what he's missing. Here are 15 of those pictures that would drive him crazy.
15 Calvin Klein Selfie
Iggy certainly isn't a stranger to the fancy things in life. After all, she released the hit song "Fancy" featuring British singer Charli XCX in 2014.
Even when Iggy is just lounging around the house, she likes to wear designer brands like Calvin Klein. Many celebrities have taken selfies in Calvin Klein, but Iggy's selfie was a breath of fresh air. First of all, she's not relaxing in a very clean, decorated room. Second, she doesn't even look like she's trying to look relaxed. She's naturally relaxed. There aren't a whole lot of women, especially younger women, who pose for pictures like models without the expensive photographers.
Iggy came up with the appropriate caption for the Calvin Klein selfie on Instagram. She wrote the hashtag, "#MyCalvins." Of course, that's her Calvin Klein bra, and it's a perfect fit for her body type: slim and slender with a little bit of chunkiness.
14 Little Black Dress
No list would be complete with a mention of the little black dress. That being said, Iggy gave us more than we can handle when she arrived in a low-key outfit to the MTV EMAs back in 2013. She flaunted her curves (and leg) in a black dress on the red carpet. She completed the ensemble with classic waves, nude makeup, and a gold necklace. She looked like a fashion icon that young women could look up to.
She sure was rocking it that night and taking one look at Iggy here would drive a lot of men crazy. The outfit must have gotten Nick Young's attention too, but it clearly wasn't enough for him to stay faithful to her. And for what, some cheap fling?
13 Tiny Shorts
Remember when Iggy entertained a large group of college students at the Victoria's Secret PINK Nation Crazy for Campus Bash at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, in 2014? Not only did Iggy impress with her rap flows, she also made everyone look twice with this alluring outfit—a black crop top, a patterned short jacket, a pair of tiny gold-studded shorts, and a pair of black leather boots. She finished off the distinctive look with a simple hairstyle of loose curls.
And Iggy was joined on-stage by Victoria's Secret models Elsa Hosk and Rachel Hilbert. As one would expect, the rapper posed for pictures with the gorgeous ladies before her performance. Oh, and let's not forget that she showed UNLV students a glimpse of her ample behind. You never know, she could be walking the runway for a Victoria's Secret Fashion Show one day. She's an example of absolute perfection.
12 Emerald Green
Iggy is no stranger to eccentric colors. In this photo, she rocked an emerald green outfit consisting of a sports bra and skin-tight jeans to show off her derrière while performing on stage. She completed the ensemble with a fishnet long-sleeve top and a gold chain-like belt.
This photo was taken after one of Iggy's Instagram pictures sparked an outrage on social media. She was spotted with a bejeweled elephant. Many fans bashed the rapper, saying the elephant belonged in the wild, and not in jewelry. Aside from the heavy backlash, she also sparked a dating rumor that she was in a relationship with rapper French Montana, who allegedly hired the bejeweled elephant as a 26th birthday party present. However, the rumor was never confirmed, so it's safe to say that the pair never fell for each other.
So just carry on and do what you do best, rapping, Iggy.
11 A Blazer... Just A Blazer
Talk about a portrait. Iggy was photographed in a blazer without a bra at the 2016 GQ Men of the Year Awards. She also wore a really long turquoise and gold necklace, which was a good pick for the unconventional ensemble.
After several setbacks, Iggy confirmed a release date for sophomore album, Digital Distortion, which was June 30, 2016. If you're a fan of hers, you should check out her twerk-friendly music videos for "Mo Bounce" and "Switch" if you haven't already. You won't be disappointed seeing her flaunt her assets.
Iggy seemed to have fun writing and recording her latest songs. Right now, there aren't a lot of female rappers that have experienced the same level of success as her. Sure, she reportedly wrote some racist tweets in the past, but nobody's perfect. She's still relevant in today's society and it'll likely stay that way for a while.
10 In Control
Iggy is in control when it comes to her music. Some fans have claimed the first single "Switch" on her second album, Digital Distortion, was about a victimized sexualization due to its dsexual lyrics: Red light, yellow light, green light, switch / This is ’bout that time you recognize that I’m that b***h. However, she explained that it was about a woman being in control of what she wants to do and when she wants to go and when she wants to stop.
Iggy told PEOPLE, “I wanted to make a song that could be fun to dance to, but the lyrics when you really listen to them are very powerful." And she did flip the switch. Not only in the song, but also in one of the related photos. She's wearing a bikini top made of silver chains and a warm tan. She surely brought the tropical vibes when we wanted it the most.
9 Ponytail with Bangs
Sometimes, the most sweetest hairstyle a girl can sport is a charming ponytail with bangs. They can work well for a work day or just for a hangout with friends.
This photo shows a good portrayal of Iggy. She isn't dressed in a revealing outfit, but she still has her game face on. While she looks sweet and innocent, you likely wouldn't want to mess with her. Minus her lengthy bangs, her blonde tresses are pulled back in a sleek ponytail, and she's wearing a sturdy-looking jacket. Also, she let her natural skin shine through by doing a minimal makeup routine of winged eyeliner and bright lips.
Iggy looks like she has it all together. She's beautiful, determined, hard-working, sarcastic, and opinionated. The only thing missing is an engagement ring on her finger. We hope to see her find happiness in the relationship department after the messy breakup with Nick Young.
8 Floral Print Halter
Here's another one of Iggy's looks we're sure you'll love to see!
Iggy showed up in a floral print halter top and a white baseball cap at a pre-release event for the debut of her electro-hop solo single "Team" in 2016. Its hook goes like this: Baby I got me / Baby I got me / And that's all I need / Yeah that's all I need / Baby I got me / Only friend I need / Playing on my team / Is someone like...
The hook of the song might be about her former fiancé, Nick Young, but its overall meaning is quite empowering for women everywhere. Iggy is a force to be reckoned with in the music industry. It's much easier to side with Team Iggy. After the release of her second album Digital Distortion, she treated the crowd at Jewel to a live performance with an expanded set list. Keep up the good work!
7 Best Face Forward
Iggy put her best face forward when she hit up the 2016 iHeart Radio Music Awards at the Forum in Inglewood, California. She wore a New World Order crop top and a pair of blue high-waisted trousers. She paired the look with a pair of red Stuart Weitzman sandals. The political term "New World Order" might offend you, but her stunning looks likely won't.
If you look a little bit more closely, Iggy was still wearing her 10 carat yellow diamond engagement ring from Nick Young in this shot. Despite the cheating rumors, she didn't throw in the towel right away. However, she later called off the wedding after failing to rebuild trust with her fiancé, who was rumored to have fathered a second son with his baby mama ex-girlfriend Keonna Green.
With sizzling looks and a successful hip hop career, Iggy truly deserves a better man this time around.
Even though Nick Young is out of the picture, Iggy Azalea's holiday ads for Forever 21 were very lovely and for good reasons.
In one photo, Iggy struck a pose for the camera while wearing a black and emerald green sequined mini dress, which drew attention to the old-school trend from the early 2000s. Sequins make a huge statement, but they need to be worn the right way. She knew how to rock the sequins without looking overly made-up. Also, she made the right choice by tying her fabulous blonde hair into a sleek ponytail. That way, it won't test the eyes of the potential customers that pass by the young women's clothing store at the mall. After all, their goal is for young ladies to pay attention to her shiny dress. Moreover, guys can check out her hourglass figure, which was perfectly flaunted by the avant-garde type of dress.
6 White Tee
Sometimes, a plain white t-shirt is all a girl needs to look great. You throw that in with getting out of a pool and you have one steamy picture here.
A simple white tee doesn't cost much money either. It's an affordable, comfortable staple to any girl's wardrobe. Iggy brought a casual look to the dressier skirt or pair of pants that she was wearing at the time of the photo-shoot. She reportedly got a nose job and breast augmentation since she became famous, but she's not the only female who underwent plastic surgery as an attempt to alter her body.
With or without plastic surgery, Iggy has always looked like the girl next door who's going to seduce one of the guys in the neighborhood. She's not afraid to be herself and share what's on her mind.
5 Long Straight Locks
Straight hair is one of the most popular go-to hairstyles for girls with long hair. So there's no surprise that Iggy is sporting a long, straight hairstyle at an event. She was every bit as smokin' hot like her hip hop tracks.
Sure, beauty is in the eyes of the beholder, but I think most of us can agree that Iggy looks good in this picture. She kept her outfit simple by wearing a white lace dress, neutral makeup and red nails. This isn't only the perfect hairstyle for Iggy, but also the majority of young ladies out there. It's an ideal look for a high school dance like homecoming, winter ball or senior prom. It doesn't take a lot of time to create, and it's a timeless look that will never go out of style as it's not a colorful, wild look that likely isn't allowed in the classroom or workplace.
4 Loads of Curls
Now, let's take a look at a picture of Iggy setting herself apart from the crowd. Iggy wasn't thrilled that her fans heard her "Pretty Girls" duet with pop princess Britney Spears, but she still turned heads at an appearance for the much anticipated song, which was one of the hottest tracks of the summer of 2015. She wore her voluminous hair in loads of curls. Again, she kept the viewers' focuses on her hair by wearing a modest black top with a tasteful gold chain.
Iggy eventually got over the early leak of the song, and joined the Britney lovers. She tweeted, "To be honest im just over here acting like a total fan girl for britneys vocals on this song. cant. stop. listening. so classically britney." The positive tweets rolled in, but the disappointment was no longer there. Aside from her gorgeous hair, she recorded a really catchy song, so she should be proud of herself nonetheless.
3 Lady in Red
Iggy sure turned heads as she graced the red carpet of the 2014 Billboard Music Awards at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. She wore a Zuhair Murad crimson gown that featured a halter neckline and a sheer lace bodice. She looked every bit the lady in red.
According to Us Weekly, Iggy was one of the best-dressed stars at the awards show. She went on to perform with pop singer Ariana Grande and brought the house down with an electrifying performance of their well-known collaboration "Problem." She wore a plaid cheerleader-like uniform with the word "Rebel" written in large, red letters. In addition, the bright red lipstick made her look even more passionate about her looks and talents.
Red is one of the best colors for Iggy, who defies stereotypes among women in general. Whether you like red or not, you can't deny it looks good on the female rapper.
2 Elle Canada
After a rocky 2015, Iggy reflected on her good and bad things in that year in a cover story for Elle Canada. Aside from her feuds with Azealia Banks and Papa John's, she responded to the criticism from the hip-hop community about her alleged lack of understanding cultural appropriation. She defended herself in a classy way, saying, "So many people think that I don't care about rap music and the community, but I absolutely care about it, to the core of my being...Why do you think I need a history lesson? Because surely if I did know anything about hip hop, I wouldn’t mix pop and rap together? Or I wouldn’t rap in an American accent if I truly understood? I just have a different perspective about rap music."
But here's another important thing: Iggy showed off her eye-popping bust in a navy blue blouse and a thick black belt in the magazine cover. She's a blonde bombshell who remains a fashion icon.
