Iggy Azalea is an Australian rapper, singer, songwriter, model, and music video director. Her songs include “Pussy,” “Two Times,” “Work,” “Fancy,” “Black Widow,” and, in a featured role, “Problem.” She has created her own label, Bad Dreams, through a distribution deal with Empire. Her official YouTube channel has garnered 3.4 billion views. She is the first non-American female rapper to top the Billboard Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart, and the second act to reach number 1 and number 2 simultaneously on the Hot 100 with their chart debut appearances.

Iggy is the daughter of Tanya and Brendan Kelly, who is a painter and comic artist. Her surname is generally Irish. She moved to the U.S. at sixteen to pursue her music career. Iggy has a son with her former partner, American rapper, singer, and songwriter Playboi Carti.

Iggy has stated, “My family came to Australia on the First Fleet. My family’s been in that country for a long time, over 100 years. If your family’s lived in Australia for a long time, everyone has a little bit of (Aboriginal blood). I know my family does because we have an eye condition that only Aboriginal people have.”

Referring to a DNA test and possibly speaking facetiously, Iggy has stated:

They also told me my ancestry is a mix of Scandinavian, Asian and awesomeadian

    Huh, No Aboriginal Australian ancestry after all? She has an eye disease common with the population. Does she have an ancestor like 200 years ago to made her 1 or less percent? This is ridiculous, Iggy Azalea is comparable to Gwen Stefani…or Rachel Dolezal, the NAACP Spokane WA chapter president discovered to not be a Black (Nez Perce/Coeur D’Alene Indian/Lebanese-Jew/African American) person, she’s only 100% White (English, German, Irish, Scottish and Czech-Slovak) said her family exposed the US’ worst case of RL trolling as well cultural appropriation.

    Both of her parents are white. She is trying to claim Australian Aboriginal because she wants to be black.

    This is her white father. He is a pure white man:

    This is her white mother. She looks like Miley Cyrus’s sister. She is a pure white woman::

    Nothing special. Just a basic self-hating white woman who had plastic surgery to look black.
