With the new single "Savior" featuring Quavo, the 27-year-old performer is attempting to make a musical comeback. Iggy recently spoke with The Cruz Show about her new music.
The interview also included a conversation about the backlash directed at Kim Kardashian after the reality TV star credited white actress Bo Derek for her Fulani braids. Like Azalea, Kim K has regularly been accused of appropriating black culture.
"I can understand why some people feel hurt about it because braids are an African-American hairstyle. And I also understand that her inspiration was Bo Derek," said Iggy. "But I can understand why people feel like give props to where it originates from too."
She continued, "That's something that I definitely made mistakes on in the past too, so I understand her making a mistake. It's okay to be inspired by Bo Derek and that movie, but also I can understand why people feel like there should be an acknowledgment of also where they originated from and where Bo Derek took her inspiration from."https://www.google.com/sorry/index?continue=https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LxoGNkLpgZk&q=EgQs6lVwGJmOg_kFIhkA8aeDS_7XRL1n0aUPf8WAKTCliQ0OUvleMgFy
