Iggy Azalea moved on to appropriating a bunch of brand-new cultures for her comeback
How long will her identity crisis continue?
by Ari Bines
Once upon a time, I was young, naive and a fan of Iggy Azalea—but all that shit changed once she dropped "bars" and rapped, "I’m a runaway slave-master" on her early track, D.R.U.G.S. Our relationship had pretty much gone downhill from there.
As it turns out, calling out Azalea on the racist lyrics and "blaccent" she's used to act hard and shit wasn't enough for her to quit copping other cultures for her music sales. After listening to a snippet of her upcoming single "Savior," which is to be released February 2, I'm convinced she's moved on from borrowing Black culture to borrowing from Bollywood.
It really shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone that she's using Bollywood chants and musicality as her so-called 'inspiration' for the track, seeing as her music video for "Bounce" exhibits her dancing around in a sari while actual brown women, who are about the culture, act as Iggy's backup dancers in matching dresswear. In addition, the song had about as much to do with the video as my black ass at a KKK calming circle.
It's also worth mentioning that Quavo from Migos is to be featured on the track as a means of getting the stamp of approval that she's not a cultural appropriator. Cuz like, you're so not racist if you have at least one black friend cosigning you, right?
The song's actually already been leaked (without Quavo), and it's nothing that I haven't heard during my trips to Jamaica in the clubs that play real dancehall and calypso music.
I've been way over Iggy for some time now by her continuously seeking out validation that she's "about that life"—which she's not. Visit a 24-hour McDonald's at 3am in the Bronx, and maybe we can talk, bitch.

Everybody knows Lifetime. They're the network known for The "Pregnancy Pact", the most important film of 2010, along with a slew of cheesy Christmas movies, and the iconic Britney Spears biopic, "Britney Ever After." The network isn't, um, exactly know for casting A-listers, and their latest cast is proof their primary skill is casting creepy…

The best part of award shows, without a doubt, is the drunken bathroom photoshoot that leaks the next morning. All those celebs decked out in gems, while sitting on the bathroom sink and doing lines of coke off their diamond handbags or whatever. (Yes, this is what we're doing when we ask 17 of our…
