Why everyone needs to LEAVE IGGY AZALEA ALONE!

Just want to say this stuff usually isn't the kind of thing I comment on but today I felt the need...
Why all the hate?
What makes Iggy Azalea any different and or worse than say - Kanye West or Snoop? 
He just might...
It would be one thing if Iggy was lambasting rap and 'black culture' BUT SHE ISN'T!
She grew up liking something and followed her dream of wanted to be like those she admired. Just like every other person in sports, music or acting. She went after something she wanted and got it.

I think she grabbed one of Vince's 'brass rings'
In relation to Iggy's awareness of 'race issues' what does she have to express or comment on?. She can stand on the side of the #blacklivesmatter argument but why are people insisting that she must shout this out to the world with a blow-horn when so many others in the 'media spotlight' have remain mum on the issue?

People may be right with the notion that Iggy's awareness and/or understanding of 'race issues' is a bit off BUT everyone seems to FORGET she's NOT AMERICAN! She's from AUSTRALIA!!


'I come from a land down under' a lyric that most people holding the pitchforks won't understand.

90% of Australia's population is of European descent mainly split between English and Irish. Those of 'African/African American' population may well be less than 0.001%. My Australian friend has said he'd only seen one Afro. American person growing up, and even today he rarely sees them.

Twilight doesn't get as much hate. But it should
Iggy raps. Nothing is said about the countless other artists who accents aren't heard when they preform - take Adele, Amy Winehouse, Estelle, and Lady Leshurr for example. Hints of their accents can be heard but the same with Iggy when they preform it is mostly hidden. Even with countless actors many don't use their natural accent.

The backlash seems to be mostly motivated by Azealia Banks who comes off as being nothing but jealous of Iggy's success. Everyone into top 40 music around the world now knows who Iggy Azalea is with her string of hits led by the song 'Fancy'.
Fancy Smanchy
I'd and many, may others had never even heard of Azealia Banks before the press started going crazy tripping over themselves to write about a silly feud push mostly by Azealia.
For one thing instead of putting all her energy into trying to slam and put down Iggy, Azealia Banks and her PR people should you know focus on her music? Because I've never heard this chick on the radio! That has nothing to say on her talent, but where's her mainstream acclaim and public knowledge in relation to her music?
Still haven't heard her on the radio...
Banks and her PR also need to attempt to prepare her image because she comes across as a childish, jealous, whiny child who's crying and trying to snatch someone else's doll because her's is missing an arm.

Let's all allow this dumb crap to die off and actually focus on the talent of both women instead of pushing for both of them to slam each other for the hell of it.

Chicago TARDIS 2014


Surprisingly an update! lol

Haven't been around here much, had a BIG loss awhile back but surprisingly wasn't hit by it that hard.

Anyways, I missed the 2nd LI Who this year because a VERY LATE train and nonrefundable train tickets. As a worker and help I was very pissed and I know surely I won't be asked to help out next year which pisses me off! >.<
So... Chicago TARDIS was very laid back this year. Very. In bed by 1am all nights and sleeping by 2am! Crazy right?! IDK maybe it was just something in the air this year? lol Only did a bit of cosplay and two panels but for the first time I help one of my best buds who works for Alien Entertainment work in the dealers room! :)
