Iggy Azalea quotes about music
Music is art to me, and you don’t censor art. You don’t go into a museum and censor things.
I started rapping since, like, 14. But I’ve been obsessed with rap from when I was 11. I heard ‘Baby Don’t Cry,’ I’ll never forget.
I think that music is still art, even if it’s commercialised.
I think most music provides the same messages – whether it be ‘I’m unhappy’ or ‘I love a girl.’ I just liked the package of rap music.
I was a kid watching music videos, which were so cool and made me want to learn how to dance. I wish I could’ve gone to dance classes and learn, like, hip-hop dancing.
I always felt really alone because no one wanted to talk about the things that I enjoyed, and that was really rap music and hip-hop as a culture. You know, having the shoes, using the words, buying the magazines, seeing the videos. And I had nobody to share it with, so I feel like I lived a lot online.
I think music talks to you on an emotional level, regardless of where you’re from. I guess I related to the tempo of rap, the aggressiveness.
Iggy Azalea quotes to motivate you
I do absolutely nothing, actually, believe it or not. People will probably hate me for saying that, but I guess I’m one of those lucky horrible people who, no matter what I eat, I don’t gain a pound. My whole family is just like that. They’re all skinny and tall, and I guess, so am I.
I think stupid people are surprised that I’m Australian. It’s a small-minded; we live in a global community, but I suppose some people still are small-minded.
There are many females in my life I couldn’t function on a daily basis without who I’ve purposely put there that work with me.
It’s different, it’s weird to say, ‘She’s a white rapper or she can’t do this because she’s this color – this color does this thing. These are the boxes we have, this is what it is, don’t try to change it.’ And it’s crazy to me because I’m just not from that world, so I can’t really rock with it all the way.
I think some people think I’m, like, anti-label, and I’m not. I just wanted to sign a deal when the time was right. I’m anti being shot out of a rocket when you’re not ready and the songs and image aren’t there.
Luxury lives in the finer details. It’s a cloth napkin at a dinner table. It’s a mint on your pillow before bed.
I’m irrational about all things creative, and I’m always late!
I’ve never heard a man in a suit tell me what to wear; that’s not their forte. You hire your stylist; whatever someone’s image is as an artist is what they’ve chosen to portray.
People think I’m more wild than I am… I like going to theme parks, play sports or just hanging out with my friends.
They say I’m insane because I need to have so much creative control. They say I’m unmanageable, but I’m not. I just know what I like. I’m obsessed with it. If you can’t control it, that’s like having somebody else paint your pictures. How could you do that? I never could.
I didn’t have cable television growing up; there were only six channels you could watch then. The only really good channel was channel 10, and they would play ‘The Nanny Called Fran’ every night for years. I’ve seen every episode 100 times. I would get my Grandma to make me leopard skin dresses on her sewing machine.
I always say: ‘Share your happiness with the world, give other people that happiness and let it come back,’ but some things make me question it. I don’t know if I want some people to know that I am happy. I think a lot of people want to take it away from you, and that’s really scary.
For me, visuals are as important as the music. I just love escapism and giving people something to escape to. To me, that’s what art is.
I think you can say anybody uses anything as a gimmick. Is Adele’s not having gimmicks her gimmick? It’s hard to say, isn’t it? Really, I think that everybody has something that people like or that’s great about them.
People criticize you for trying new things. I think, ‘I’m new! I’m 22!’ I don’t know exactly what my sound is or what I want my album to sound like, so I’m not releasing it yet. While I’m experimenting, I’ll let you in on the journey, and you can hear it for free.
I always thought that there was something in hip-hop culture that was the misfit of all the musical styles, where they didn’t really belong. They’re kind of like, ‘No, we’re a real culture! We’re not going anywhere, you can’t get rid of us!’ I really liked that there was a rebelliousness about it. I connected with that.
Anyone’s happier when they’re not being verbally abused all day long.
I found it to be kind of ironic, because I’m white, therefore I’m appropriating culture, but then Eminem won it – who’s white and won it many times – and they didn’t seem to say anything about that. I suspect it was just because they dislike me.
Women in music have the bigger balls anyhow we endure much more harassment and critic.
Once you go great, you never go good..You never go back, even if you could.
No one can break me down. I know my worth and its a beautiful thing.
Iggy Azalea quotes for Instagram captions
Shake it, break it, make it bounce
First things first, I’m the realest
You should want a bad bitch like this / Drop it low and pick it up just like this
And a little trouble only makes for a good time
