Iggy Azalea Finally Opens Up About Relationship With A$AP Rocky [PHOTOS]
Australian femcee Iggy Azalea recent snatched the front cover of Complex Magazine and spilled the beans on her rocky relationship with A$AP Rocky (no pun intended). She spoke on covering up her "Long Live A$AP" finger tattoo, dating in the industry, and much more. Check out some of the interview below along with some flicks from the mag shoot.
Having been in a public relationship with Rocky, would you ever date someone publicly again?
No. I’d date somebody in the industry again, but the number one thing
I regret saying publicly is that I fucking loved Rakim [A$AP Rocky].
These are the things that happen when you say you love somebody in the
media: Every person that person’s ever had sex with, who would still
like to have sex with them, will say what a lame bitch you are. Every
person who’s ever had sex with me, who wants to have sex with me
still, will say how wack the guy is. Then, everybody who has an
ulterior motive business-wise is gonna come at us and tell us every
reason why we shouldn’t fuck with each other. Little seeds get
planted. “Does she really love you? Did she say that because she’s
using you for attention? You should be dating a black girl.” Blogs do
voting polls: “Do you think they’re a good couple or not?” I fucking
hated that. It’s not a song. It’s a relationship, and you’re not in
it, by the way. It’s so sick to me. Also, you can never go out because
people will take pictures of you or talk about what you’re doing, or
if you’re having a fight. You’ll never be able to enjoy yourself in
the capacity of a normal fucking human being ever again.
How badly did things end with you and Rocky?
I definitely hated his guts and he hated my guts for a few months.
[Laughs.] It was a legit “Fuck you!” “Fuck you!” peace out. But once
you’ve had a few months to look at things in retrospect you realize
maybe you don’t hate that person, you hate whatever caused the
breakup, and you both failed in the relationship. I don’t call him up
and have conversations and I wouldn’t say Rocky is my friend, but
there are times I’ve congratulated him on things he’s achieved and he
occasionally congratulates me on shit that he’s proud of. We’re
cordial and I respect him, but there’s a separation.
Have you ever regretted getting your A$AP tattoo?
I’ve never regretted it. I fucking loved him. I know he loved me, too.
I felt like he was somebody I could count on who loved me for being
me, and I don’t want to forget that. I would sacrifice a quarter of a
pinky for those memories. That’s why I didn’t cross it out all the
way, because if I’d covered it up all the way, that says I’m
embarrassed. You shouldn’t be ashamed of the trials of becoming an
adult. I wanted people to know I’m free for more possible love
interests, but also not ashamed.
