Iggy Azalea got surprisingly candid
with Andy Cohen on Wednesday, addressing her reported celeb feuds, her upcoming wedding and the strange circumstances surrounding her lunch with Britney Spears
Here are seven of the most surprising things Azalea opened up about on Watch What Happens Live!
1. On why she admitted to getting plastic surgery:
The 25-year-old rapper, who has openly admitted to having plastic surgery
on her nose and breast augmentation, said that stars need to be honest about getting work done "if you're going to do something that obvious" because "everyone's seen what your nose looks like before."
"Some people are like, 'It’s contouring!' Yeah, contouring with a chisel," Azalea added.
2. On the craziest rumor she's ever heard about herself:
"The craziest rumor that I've ever heard, that really went around, was that I had a sex change when I turned 18 and that I was born with a penis and my name was Corey," Azalea said, laughing. "Why would my name be Corey? It would be Liam, that’s my boy name… My mom always said if I was a boy I'd be named Liam."
3. On being name-checked by Macklemore
In Macklemore's single "White Privilege II," he calls Azalea out by name in lyrics, accusing her of cultural appropriation. He later said in an interview with Billboard magazine that he didn't mean the lyrics as a diss.
"I read his interview and he was like, 'I should have called.' You should have and you still didn't, so what's up with that?" Azalea wondered.
She admitted that she didn't think the lyrics were meant to insult her, but said she would have liked to know about being name-checked before the track was released, because then she "wouldn't have been blindsided."
4. On Nicki Minaj criticizing her for not writing her own songs:
"I have just as many people on my writing credits as she has on hers," Azalea argued. "I know I write mine, and if she writes hers, I believe her too. But you can't look at the credits and be like, 'Oh look at this massive difference!' It's the same number of people on both."
5. On Britney Spears coming to her house for lunch:
While collaborating on the song "Pretty Girls,"
Spears came to Azalea's house so the two could meet over lunch. But, according to the Australian performer, people who worked for Spears had to come to her house first to look around a bit.
"They came and checked my place to make sure I wasn't trying to stash anything weird and, like, give it to her, or something," Azalea recounted.
"Wait, Britney had advance people come scope out the place?" Cohen asked, surprised.
"Yeah, to make sure I wasn't a bad influence. And I'm not. I passed the test!" said Azalea, who added that Spears’ team of people "were very nice."
"I was like, 'I promise, I'm not gonna do anything bad. I just want to have lunch,’" she added. "I mean, I don't do anything weird. I don't have, like, a crack den."
6. On her wedding to Nick Young, and their possible first dance:
“[The wedding] is early next year, but I'm not saying the month because then everybody heckles you about it," Azalea revealed of her upcoming nuptials
to the Los Angeles Lakers star.
The rapper also opened up about plans for her and Young’s first dance as a married couple, explaining that her husband-to-be wants to do something fun, while she want to keep things a little more traditional.
"Nick wants to do something stupid. He wants to, like, breakdance, and I don’t want to do that. I want a serious dance," Azalea shared. "I already have to live with him, every day, being silly. I'm like, 'Can we have one serious moment?'"
She also addressed rumors that they are looking to have R. Kelly perform at the ceremony.
"Nick thinks it would be great. So we'll see," Azalea said, sounding hesitant. "I like R. Kelly too [but] we haven't really pursued it."
7. On sexy sports superstitions:
Finally, Azalea got down and dirty when asked whether or not she and Young fool around on game day.
"It used to be [no], but now he thinks it gives him special powers," Azalea said, punctuating the statement with a wink and a smile.
