The most irresistibly Iggy Azalea quotes that will be huge advantage for your personal development
First things first, I'm da realest.

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.

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. And if I have a very long career and can be gyrating in a leotard at 35, that would be great.
I really like 'Roar' and 'Dark Horse.
' 'Dark Horse' I really like, and I feel I would sing that in the bathroom; I would buy that album, and I think Katy Perry's amazing!

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.
Music is art to me, and you don't censor art. You don't go into a museum and censor things.
My management team are all women. Most of the people at labels I liaise with are all women. It's pretty much all women all the time.

I felt like everyone was shitting on me, like, "She didn't get that deal with Interscope. She got dropped! She won't get another project!" making it so much worse then any of it really was.

Pledge allegiance to the struggle.
I think its funny when people say a female rapper is too sexually charged, maybe the way I do it is a little more in your face but that's because I have to be aggressive and masculine to make it in the industry. If I talk about sex blatantly, when the mainstream media says it metaphorically every day, it's not okay? It's hypocritical.
