Iggy Azalea has been compared to Kreayshawn (we get it, both are white female rappers) but she actually might have more in common with Lana Del Rey. Both up-and-comers have unusual voices, long hair, full lips and model-esque figures; both are being courted by the fashion industry. Lana has a campaign out with H&M, while Iggy has been shot for British brand House of Holland and will be walking in a New York Fashion Week show.
Iggy’s model ambitions are on full display in a behind-the-scenes video from Hearty magazine in which she poses in denim cut-offs, a black leather vest, and a pair of sold-out Proenza Schouler Gustav booties. During the shoot, the Australian-born musician shares some interesting tips for feeling confident in your look. We’ve transcribed each, and translated it from Iggy-speak to English.
TIP NO. 1
“My dad always says, wear the tallest heels you can and stand really close to short men. If they have a small dick it will shrivel up. And if they don’t then don’t worry about it.” Translated: Be aggressive with your look and always go on the offensive.
TIP NO. 2
“Whatever it is that you are, just own it and don’t feel like you have to owe anything to anybody else or have big tits or a big ass. But if you do, that’s cool too. Even with me being so pale. You know how many free tans I get offered? I’m fucking not interested, okay?” Translated: Stop worrying about what other people think.
TIP NO. 3
“It’s about knowing yourself and being fucking cool with it and rocking that shit.” Translated: Be confident in who you are.
