Iggy Azalea is unapologetic when it comes to her image and how she is perceived. 

Azalea had a recent interview with Cosmopolitan, where she discussed her role as a hip-hop artist, how she used to speak out against the criticism she has faced because of how she dresses, speaks, and creates music, and how she believes that cultural appropriation is subjective. 

In the article she says “You could ask one person of the same race, ‘Does this affect you?’ and they will say yes. You could ask one person of the same race, ‘Does this affect you?’ and they will say yes. But another person will say no. They could be from the same place, same everything, but have different perspectives about it.” 

Azalea later stated that she was not going to apologize for simply being herself. “I’m still going to make the same type of music and still be ridiculous and larger than life. So I can’t be that f***ing sorry about it.” 

What are your thoughts on this?
