Billboard, Iggy Azalea


Let's start this by saying everyone's entitled to their own opinion, and it's no surprise that Iggy Azalea has a few she'd like to share.

The "Fancy" rapper got jeweled-up and struck a fierce pose for Billboard magazine's latest issue, and during her interview with the mag, she seemed to throw a little shade at fellow musician Lorde and even—wait for it—The Beatles!

So what did she say?! Well, let's start off with the whole Lorde debacle. The 17-year-old collaborated with the surviving members of Nirvana at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony on April 10 in Brooklyn, and Iggy didn't feel like that was "appropriate."

"Nothing against her, but I think when you're doing a tribute to someone that's dead, generally it should be the person's peer," Azalea told the mag. "Lorde is not Kurt Cobain's peer. No matter if she killed the performance or not, I just don't think it's appropriate."

Lorde, who has come to Iggy's defense over "spineless critics" in the past, has not responded to the comment.

As for The Beatles, the Aussie star is the first act since the iconic 1960s band to have her debut Hot 100 hits ("Fancy" and "Problem") reach No. 1 and 2 on the chart simultaneously. Her response to the achievement?

"It doesn't mean anything," Iggy said. "I'd rather be The Rolling Stones."

And there you have it.

In sexier news, the blond bombshell posted some bikini pics on her Instagram while chillin' out, maxin' and relaxin' all cool with her NBA beau Nick Young. The two were on a boat (try to refrain from singing the song, please) and soaking up the sun while the rapper flaunted her famous curves.

Iggy strut a green caged bikini that showed off her tiny waist and long legs. In a different photo, Azalea got cheeky by flaunting her booty in the tiny two-piece.
