Iggy Azalea doesn’t have a ‘home connection’ to Australia anymore.
The ‘Black Widow’ hitmaker – who was born in Sydney and grew up in Mullumbimby – sees America as her home now but enjoys returning to her birth country from time to time.
She said: ‘I mean, to be honest with you, my home is in America. I’ve lived there for a decade, that’s where I live. It’s great to come back and visit my grandparents, but there is no home connection. It would be like you going home to where you lived when you were nine, I kind of don’t associate with that anymore.’
And the 26-year-old singer is ‘proud’ of the success she has achieved.
She added to Australia’s Herald Sun newspaper: ‘To be the best, you want to compete with the best. The people I saw back then who I saw in the charts, who were at the top of our charts, were American.
‘I am proud, but I think anybody would be proud of the success that I’ve had, whether they come from a big city or a small town. It’s tough, no matter what.’
Meanwhile, Iggy will return to Australia following the announcement she will be a new judge on The X Factor.
She said previously: ‘I hope it will be a bit of a summer getaway and I can work too. It will be summer so hopefully I can get out and chill and show everybody that is coming with me the good food and the beach and play some tennis and ride horses.
‘Spending a month in Australia is the longest I will have spent there in literally like 10 years.

I-G-G-Y is taking her hustle to TV and film.
Aussie rapstress Iggy Azalea appears to be turning her attention to producing content for NBCUniversal. The “Team” performer just signed a production deal with the company to create original content.
Azalea made the announcement via Instagram with a photo of her signature on the contract.
“Wanted to share with everyone that my production company ‘Azalea Street’ has just signed on to create original content for Universal NBC! So guys, I’m an Executive Producer for at least a few years to come! Hopefully many! Lots of scripted series in the works! Lots of interesting ideas!”
This partnership between Azalea’s company and NBCUniversal appears to have been in the works for some time. She mentioned her interest in producing content during a recent interview with Notion magazine.
“I would still like to get into producing movies and television series, behind the scenes and will be doing that in the next one or two years.”
So, if you’re waiting on Azalea’s sophomore album, you’re going to need to keep waiting. But that doesn’t mean she isn’t hard at work!Tweet
Rapper Iggy Azalea has bought a new home and is busy decorating it following her recent split from her ex-fiance Nick Young.
The “Fancy” hitmaker, 26, seems she’s keen to wipe clear any memories she has of her former lover by setting up home elsewhere and putting her own stamp on the interiors, reported Conmtactmusic.
Taking to her Twitter account, she said, “Can’t wait to get home and get started on fixing up my new place. I’ve been annoying Adam and Guy talking about carpet all week (sic).”
The 26-year-old rapper moved out of the home she shared with Nick in Tarzana, California, late last month after she saw the NBA basketball player getting frisky beneath the sheets with a mystery woman on their home CCTV.
Azalea and Young began dating at the beginning of 2014 and got engaged in 2015, but their romance was rocked earlier this year when the “Team” hitmaker had to suffer the indignity of a video leaking online which showed Nick admitting to his Los Angeles Lakers teammate D’Angelo Russell that he had cheated on her with a teenager.
