Iggy Azaela: No Musicians Have Told Me I?m Not Authentic

Irony is karma’s way of making the truth salient. A day before Nicki Minaj bested Iggy Azaela for Best Female Hip Hop Artist at the 2014 BET Awards, Iggy spoke on her authenticity never being questioned in the

music industry.

During her acceptance speech Nicki applauded BET for continuing to “honor authenticity” after stating that she writes her own music. Many have construed it as a shot at Azaela and during an interview with The Guardian stated her authenticity has never been questioned:

I have never had any musicians tell me that I wasn’t authentic for being white and Australian. Not one. Even I had a warped perception of how I would be received in this business. What I’ve come to realise is that it’s the people who write about music – or who are outside it in some way – who have a problem with what I am doing. The only true insiders are the musicians themselves.

Check out the full interview here.
