I – G – G – Y
If you are currently asking yourself ‘Who that?’ instead of ‘Who dat?’, you definitely need to keep up with the talented piece of Australian that is Iggy Azalea. This week we are loving ourselves some Iggy, as she continues to leave her mark on the music and fashion world. Not only is this girl in the fast lane from LA to Tokyo but she is also in the fast lane to becoming one of the most influential gals in the industry. This year alone she has topped numerous charts – breaking records previously accomplished by only the Beatles, rocked the crap out of yellow tartan in her Clueless inspired music video (love it), been cast in the next Fast and Furious movie and now she’s set to host MTV’s ‘House of Style’ in the lead up to the Video Music Awards.
As a teenager, she dropped out of high school and moved to Miami to pursue her dream and even after constant scrutiny from not-so-Iggy-fans and even fellow artists she continues to stick it to the man, being her and doing her thing. If we creatives here at FOM can learn anything from her it’s not just how to be fancy but also the power of passion, determination and resilience when chasing your dream.
