Iggy Azalea moved on to appropriating a bunch of brand-new cultures for her comeback
How long will her identity crisis continue?
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.

We texted our one-night stands to ask when we could exchange Christmas gifts and things got MESSY ?
They were *not* excited to hear from us

The holidays are great because you get to eat as much as you want, binge drink in front of your parents, and flex on all your old high school acquaintances. But they're also great because they encourage us — in our eggnog induced stupors — to message risky things to all the people we definitely…
It’s official! Every single character on Riverdale sucks except for Betty
Betty FINALLY snapped

So with Riverdale Season 3 Episode 7, there’s good news and there’s bad news. The good news is that I’m starting to think that the Riverdale writers are actually reading my recaps, or at least spending a lot of time scouring r/riverdale, because they FINALLY decided to stop jumping around madly from one disjointed plotline…
