Iggy Azalea Net Worth $10 Million

Iggy became interested in rap at the age of 14, and formed a band, however, the other members did not take it that seriously and they split up. Azalea was dreaming about going to America, to become a rapper, and just after her 16 birthday, she did exactly that, and stayed there to get her GED (high school-level skills). Currently, she lives in USA leaving it every so often to renew her visa.

As she was always dreaming about the career of a rapper, her dream came true. After her first mixtape entitled “Ignorant Art” (2011) was released, she signed a contract with Grand Hustle record label. Then the EP “Glory” (2012) and the mixtape “TrapGold” (2012) were released. Following her participation in the festival in London, another EP was released under the title “iTunes Festival: London 2013” (2013). It is important to mention the fact that the above mentioned recordings, as well as the following ones, have been released under another record label Virgin EMI. Iggy rose to prominence when her first single “Work” (2013) was released. She was nominated as an Artist to Watch by the MTV Video Music Awards. Her debut single received platinum certification in USA, silver in Britain and gold in Australia. The same year, the rapper released several other singles “Bounce” and “Change Your Life”, although, they were not as successful as the first one. Afterwards, the single “Fancy” (2014) topped the charts of Canada, New Zealand and USA, and has been certified multi-platinum in many countries. Furthermore, the single “Black Widow” (2014) was also very popular among listeners. All popular singles were added into the first Iggy Azalea’s studio album “The New Classic” (2014) which has reached the top spot in the USA, second in Australia and Canada, and third in New Zealand. The album has added $454,000 to her net worth.

Since 2012, Iggy has been working with Wilhelmina Models International Inc; modelling has also added sums to her net worth as she was the face of such campaign as Levi’s “Go Forth” and others.

In addition to this, Azalea has made several appearances on television and cinema. She has appeared in the feature film “Furious 7” (2015) directed by James Wan. As a guest, she appeared in the television shows “Dave Skylark’s Very Special VMA Special” (2014) and “Saturday Night Live” (2014).

Iggy had been in a long term relationship with the record producer Chase N. Cashe. However, the couple split up after a few years spent together. Currently, she lives together with professional basketball player Nick Young, in Tarzana, California.

1They say I'm insane because I need to have so much creative control. They say I'm unmanageable, but I'm not. I just know what I like. I'm obsessed with it. If you can't control it, that's like having somebody else paint your pictures. How could you do that? I never could.
2I'd dropped out of high school without really doing it on purpose - I'd just go home at lunch 'cos I didn't have friends, then stay there all afternoon listening to rap. It got to the point where I wouldn't have passed even if I'd gone back. I was depressed, basically.
3I've been a little bit Las Vegas and casino-obsessed. So, I love some trashy glamour... and I think nothing's trashier or more glamorous than a bit of a sheer number!
4I've never heard a man in a suit tell me what to wear; that's not their forte. You hire your stylist; whatever someone's image is as an artist is what they've chosen to portray.
5It's different, it's weird to say, 'She's a white rapper or she can't do this because she's this color - this color does this thing. These are the boxes we have, this is what it is, don't try to change it.' And it's crazy to me because I'm just not from that world, so I can't really rock with it all the way.
6People criticize you for trying new things. I think, 'I'm new! I'm 22!' I don't know exactly what my sound is or what I want my album to sound like, so I'm not releasing it yet. While I'm experimenting, I'll let you in on the journey, and you can hear it for free.
7I always thought that there was something in hip-hop culture that was the misfit of all the musical styles, where they didn't really belong. They're kind of like, 'No, we're a real culture! We're not going anywhere, you can't get rid of us!' I really liked that there was a rebelliousness about it. I connected with that.
8I feel like 'Work' was a really good song for people to get to know me, as it's obviously biographical. With 'Bounce,' I wanted to make sure people know there's a fun side to me as well as the somber and serious one.
9I never feel with the fashion stuff that it's too fake. If I was a model and had a working part in Fashion Week, then I might feel like that, but I'm just a visitor. I really only walk in and watch the shows and think, 'Maybe I could wear that in a video.' I meet the designer, say hello, and then I go.
10I really like 'Roar' and 'Dark Horse.' 'Dark Horse' I really like, and I feel I would sing that in the bathroom; I would buy that album, and I think Katy Perry's amazing!
11I think some people think I'm, like, anti-label, and I'm not. I just wanted to sign a deal when the time was right. I'm anti being shot out of a rocket when you're not ready and the songs and image aren't there.
12T.I.'s my mentor; he's a really close friend of mine. I call him my brother like we talk on the phone all the time. He's helped me with my career.
13There are many females in my life I couldn't function on a daily basis without who I've purposely put there that work with me.
14As a child, I remember my dad would sometimes drive me into town with him to play pinball machines together. It's a bittersweet memory but also a favorite.
15A lot of people heard 'Murda Business' and thought it was about killing people, trying to be tough and hardcore. If you actually listen to the lyrics, it's kind of silly and playful.
16I always felt really alone because no one wanted to talk about the things that I enjoyed, and that was really rap music and hip-hop as a culture. You know, having the shoes, using the words, buying the magazines, seeing the videos. And I had nobody to share it with, so I feel like I lived a lot online.
17I love musk oil. There's something about musk that makes it memorable without being overpowering.
18I started rapping since, like, 14. But I've been obsessed with rap from when I was 11. I heard 'Baby Don't Cry,' I'll never forget.
19I'm irrational about all things creative, and I'm always late!
20My management team are all women. Most of the people at labels I liaise with are all women. It's pretty much all women all the time.
21People think I'm more wild than I am... I like going to theme parks, play sports or just hanging out with my friends.
22I'm a pretty chill and easygoing person; most people in Australia are, as well. I don't think I ever really saw a lot of fights growing up. I think it's hard to get people in Australia angry and want to fight, minus one or two people in the media... but we won't say any names.
23I didn't have cable television growing up; there were only six channels you could watch then. The only really good channel was channel 10, and they would play 'The Nanny Called Fran' every night for years. I've seen every episode 100 times. I would get my Grandma to make me leopard skin dresses on her sewing machine.
24I think stupid people are surprised that I'm Australian. It's a small-minded; we live in a global community, but I suppose some people still are small-minded.
25I think you can say anybody uses anything as a gimmick. Is Adele's not having gimmicks her gimmick? It's hard to say, isn't it? Really, I think that everybody has something that people like or that's great about them.
26'Iggy' was my dog - he was named after Iggy Pop - and 'Azalea' is the street where I grew up; together, they have the right amount of syllables to make the perfect name.
27I'd known since about eleven that I wanted to live in America.
28Not every artist is a role model.
29There's an obligation to not lead people down the wrong path, but I hardly think me wearing short shorts on stage is creating monsters.
30We don't really watch basketball in Australia.
31I was a kid watching music videos, which were so cool and made me want to learn how to dance. I wish I could've gone to dance classes and learn, like, hip-hop dancing.
32My real name is Amethyst. It sounds like a stage name. My mom is kind of crazy.
33As far as people whose style interests me, I'd say Grace Kelly, Gwen, Spice Girls, Victoria Beckham, and that nanny called Fran.
34Being talked about like a package - I feel like that all the time.
35I think music talks to you on an emotional level, regardless of where you're from. I guess I related to the tempo of rap, the aggressiveness.
36I think that music is still art, even if it's commercialised.
37Luxury lives in the finer details. It's a cloth napkin at a dinner table. It's a mint on your pillow before bed.
38I do absolutely nothing, actually, believe it or not. People will probably hate me for saying that, but I guess I'm one of those lucky horrible people who, no matter what I eat, I don't gain a pound. My whole family is just like that. They're all skinny and tall, and I guess, so am I.
39For me, visuals are as important as the music. I just love escapism and giving people something to escape to. To me, that's what art is.
40I think most music provides the same messages - whether it be 'I'm unhappy' or 'I love a girl.' I just liked the package of rap music.
41I like 'Ab Fab;' I love the crazy stuff they wear. That's my favourite! I love 'Ab Fab.'
42Music is art to me, and you don't censor art. You don't go into a museum and censor things.
43I naturally want to be provocative.
44I always say: 'Share your happiness with the world, give other people that happiness and let it come back,' but some things make me question it. I don't know if I want some people to know that I am happy. I think a lot of people want to take it away from you, and that's really scary.
45I love purple because my name is Amethyst.
46I hated school so bad. I only liked art class during high school. I was always smart.
