In an interview with GQ, the "Fancy" signer said, "You never know how long you'll be in people's good graces, especially in this business… I could be here for three or four years and then be out, like most artists… I might be here for a long time."
Either way, Azalea will go down in music history for setting sales chart records. She's one of the only artists to have singles off a debut album to reach the No. 1 and No. 2 spots at the same time.
"At the very worst, if I have a short-lived career, at least I could say I sparked a change—that I inspired some leniency in what people accept in hip-hop," Azalea added. "And if I have a very long career and can be gyrating in a leotard at 35, that would be great."
For the immediate future, it's clear that her career is still on the rise. She offered a glimpse into the making of her second album, and teased her upcoming concert tour The Great Escape.
"I think it's a little bit surreal. I always think of Xanadu and Fantasia when doing up my tour. And I just want, not to be too wacky, but I just want a great experience and just felt really immersed in the whole thing," Azalea revealed.
She also explained what aspects of the tour she's focused on the most. "Everything. Concept. Tour posters. I want everything to be right—everything, from the tour book to what someone wears. Even the right faces for the dancers, and their attitude. Everything is equally important,” Azalea said.
