Grand Hustle rapper denies tabloids, feels objectified.
In an interview published last month (March 23), the "P---y" rapper said, “I was at [Kanye's] house last week and he was playing me his ‘scriptures,’ as he calls his spoken-word interludes, and there was one about McDonald’s: ‘Those fries / Those fries / I have them in my eyes / That smooth apple pie….” The rumors abounded from there.
“I was at the grocery store buying a rotisserie chicken to eat … and I ran in and got it and I was standing in the line, and you know when you’re standing in line and you see all the tabloid magazines and s--t and I looked at it and I was like … ‘Kim gets dumped in Paris for sexy blonde,’ ‘skinny blonde muse,’ and I was like what the f--k? I’m looking and it’s my f---ing face and I was like… [laughs] what?"
While she didn't explain her actual relationship with Kanye, she did lambast the tabloids for including in the article, "pictures of my butt, or whatever." In fact, she goes in on the world as a whole for objectifying her and then explains how she deals with it.
“I think it is annoying to see that dumb stuff, and yeah it is annoying to be objectified, yeah it is annoying that there’s a million pictures of my butt … [but] people are always going to interpret s--t weird, or like things for different reasons, and f--k it. If you like my butt, you like my butt, at least you like something. I just have to look at it like that or it’d be so frustrating," she said.
“If I was a man in the world, I wouldn’t have to be subjected to discussions that I am subjected to as a woman in the world, it’s not just hip hop. Yes, I think the world objectifies women and I think the world makes us part of this discussion that I’d rather not be a part of at times, but it almost works in reverse – makes me come and make a song like 'P---y,' like f--k you guys.
“Even the other day, I won’t say who it was, somebody I work with in a label… and [they said] like ‘I like how she looked at the Brit Awards, why can’t she look more demure?’ and I thought, ‘F--k you, you’re a guy, you thought that that was a type of sexiness that appealed to you, something that was more demure, because you’re an older man, instead of something crass, me in a colorful pair of highlighter shorts, you still wanted me to be beautiful in your own way, and kind of, to me, it’s still objectifying me.”
“I think it’s f---ed up, because for a lot of the girls, we don’t fit in, we have to feel bad if we are more sexual or bad if we want to have pink hair or if you want to do this … I’ve had people say, ‘oh you’re beautiful, but where are your t--s?’ You know what I mean? Who says I have to want any?”
Other than correcting rumors, Azalea is prepping for her debut album, The New Classic, with the release of her lead single "Work," and she's scheduled to appear back in her Australian homeland at the end of this month with a slew of other rappers, including Nas and Joey BadA$$.
