Iggy Azalea Covers 'Paper' Magazine Nightlife Issue

Iggy Azalea carries a shiny disco ball on the cover of Paper magazine’s Nightlife issue, out on newsstands now!

Here’s what the 23-year-old singer had to share with the mag:

On having a twerk-off with her backup dancers in NYC’s Bowery Ballroom: “People just wanna see my butt. We’d been doing that dance-off at the shows, but no one put it online. At the Bowery, they did.”

On how she got her nickname Iggy: “When I was a kid, Iggy was my dog. But he’d always get in fights and come home covered in blood. One time, he got bitten by a snake. I thought for sure he was going to die, but he’d always make it. Iggy was the runt of the litter, but he always survived. I really loved that dog. He was a tough, cool, determined fighter. He had all the characteristics I admire in people. When he got put down, I got a nameplate necklace with his name. People started calling me that, too.”

On her first trip to the U.S. at age 13: “I loved it here. It was like the movies, but real. I wanted to live in America ever since I visited. I bought a blue wig on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and I wore it everywhere. I thought people would think it was my real hair. Now that I look back on it, I’m like, that hair does not look real, girl.”

FYI: Iggy is wearing Saint Laurent on the cover.
