Did Iggy Azalea Have a Britney Spears-Esque Pop Star Past?
By Kevin Rutherford
Who knows what to think anymore.
Iggy Azalea was touted in 2011 as one of the next big things in rap, having started her craft at the age of 14. Not bad for a white female from Australia who moved to the U.S. in 2006.
But things weren’t always as good for Azalea as they are now, with 2014’s song of the summer in “Fancy” and another single, “Black Widow,” slowly climbing the charts. She went unsigned at first, but had brief management from Interscope Records. Eventually, she was signed by T.I.’s Grand Hustle and, eventually, Island in the U.S.
But what happened before that, even before songs like “Pu$$y” and “My World” made the rounds?
If a just-uploaded video is to be believed, some sort of Britney Spears-esque pop career.
