Just want to say this stuff usually isn't the kind of thing I comment on but today I felt the need...
OKAY EVERYONE! LET'S GET TO IT!
|Why all the hate?|
What makes Iggy Azalea any different and or worse than say - Kanye West or Snoop?
|He just might...|
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'|
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|
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'.
|Still haven't heard her on the radio...|
|'IT'S MINE B*TCH!'|
