Iggy Azalea's meteoric rise to fame has led the Australian rapper to four GRAMMY nominations and a score of hit songs off her debut album The New Classic – all by the time she was 24.

But the striking six-foot-tall singer, known for her raunchy lyrics and risqué on-stage performances, doesn't have any plans to slow down, but admits that she has no idea what is in store for her.

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.

The Great Escape arena concert tour kicks off April 14 in Fresno, Calif.
