Some people need to tone it down on the perv-o-meter because they're ruining it for everyone else.
It's not unusual to see an artist crowd surf and then immediately wonder, "Wow, are people trying to touch them inappropriately? What if they don't mean to but that's what ends up happening?" Well, if the artist in question is Iggy Azalea, then you know for a fact they're doing more than that (and on purpose!).
The New Classic rapper stopped by New York City radio station Hot 97 to promote the release of her new album yesterday, and shared why she no longer crowd surfs during her shows anymore—and it's disturbing.
The 23-year-old Aussie revealed that she stopped doing the act because fans would try to put their fingers where they are not welcomed.
"I will get lurk tweets for like a week before my show, like 'I'm about to go to the Iggy Azalea show and I'm going to finger her,' and I'll see it and be like, please don't!," she said. "That's a violation. I don't actually like that stuff."
She continued, "Like, they think I'm real slutty, like 'Oh, she got a song called 'P---y,' I know what she wants. She wants these two fingers.' Why would I want a stranger to ever finger me? Buying my album for $12 doesn't mean you get to finger me when I come to your city."
What may be even more shocking? It's moreso the ladies than the fellas that try to do it. "The crazy thing is girls will try to do it the most," Iggy said. "Girls will try to do it more than guys because girls think it's cool, like, 'What? We both got vaginas. It's fine!' Doesn't make it OK."
Even though Azalea has vetoed the crowd-surfing idea, she still takes proper precautions by wearing two pairs of underwear and skin-colored tights underneath her pants as a "protective barrier."
