Iggy Azalea Told Me War Stories From the Road. They Are Not Pretty.
“People try to finger me through my clothes. It’s disgusting. I used to crowd surf but I don’t anymore. Shit happens and I can’t control it but blogs will always write, ‘Iggy lets fan rub her butt like a genie lamp.’ I saw that one time and I was like, that’s not what happened. What happened is, I got violated on stage and what can you fucking do?”

I Tried to Get TeeFLii to Meet Me at a Strip Club. He Was Not Having It
“If my grandpa hadn’t died, I wouldn’t even be singing like this. I’d be singing a song called, ‘Thank You Lord For All These Many Blessings.’” —TeeFLii
So we went to Tony Roma’s. You can read the piece here. And below is why he’s not going to strip clubs.
“That be my thing to the bros when they be giving me money. Oh, throw money to the strippers. All right, cool. I’m gonna give that money to my daughter.
I just feel like, your panties. Your bra showing and all of that. Like, I can see that in my room. Why everybody else got to see what I want to see? I don’t even want to see it no more. They see. Ah, man. I don’t want to see, I don’t want what they got.
You trying to take me to a strip club in the day? If I don’t want to go at nighttime, what makes you think I’m gonna want to go in the day? I’m gonna be outside smoking, rolling a blunt.
I like strippers. See. I don’t want nobody to take it out of context. See, ‘cause I’ve messed with strippers before. You feel me? I’ve had experience with a stripper. Look. I just feel like what, look. That’s our business. That ain’t nobody else’s business.
So you say you don’t go to the strip club to go pick up no girl. Then what are you going for? You want to see some athletics? Go watch the basketball girls. NCAA is on right now.
My thing is look, I have a daughter. You think I would want somebody looking at my daughter slide around a pole? Like these are things I still got to worry about.
Look at my heart right now just thinking about it.
One thing my daughter got to know is look, I already told her mama and I’m telling the next mama too. If she want to strip, I’m going. I ain’t gonna do nothing bad. I’m gonna throw all the money. She’s gonna be like, ‘Daddy why you show up?’ Well, daughter, one thing you need to know is whatever you do I’m gonna be your biggest supporter. I’m gonna be your biggest supporter. So you better find a different job.”
I Went to Coachella Last Weekend to Get High and Watch Bands. In That Order
Because I have a cool boss, I went to Coachella last weekend not to review shows but to have a good time. I got home every night around 3:30 a.m. and wrote while high and exhausted — which means when I read these, it was like seeing the words for the first time. Fun experiment!
Peter Bohler took the best photos I’ve ever seen of Coachella, too. (That’s one of his above.)
Here is my stuff:
I Went to Paid Dues with Speak. We Smoked Blunts, Drank Double Whiskeys and Had a Fuckin’ Singalong
4:40-4:52 P.M. I’m talking to Suga Free in his trailer. He peers out and sees Speak looking for me. “Don’t worry, she’s with ya friendly neighborhood playa pimp,” Free says. I leave and tell Speak Suga Free just told me I smell like candy. “He’s trying to fuck you,” Speak says.
