Often the voice of reason in hip hop, T.I. is standing his ground again in defense of his protégé, Iggy Azalea. The Hustle Gang head honcho wants critics to stop trying to classify the First Lady of Grand Hustle and focus on her talent.
“I think her influence in music should be attributed to her work ethic, her artistic views,” T.I. told Hard Knock TV. Since Iggy stepped on the scene she’s been subjected to scrutiny for her lyrics, her Southern drawl, and rumored use of the N-word.

“She has a vision for herself, that she will not compromise, she has a certain idea of how she wants to present herself and how to platform her art,” T.I. said. “I think she should be judged based on that rather then her cred, her nationality, what country she is from … I think all of that, those are stereotypes,” he continued.

Above all T.I. doesn’t want Iggy to be placed in a box and labeled as solely a pop or rap artist.

“When you start trying to classify people in different categories then you diminish the purpose of what we do,” the Family Hustle star said. “What we do is try to bring people together … I think she can go in a lot of different genres because she’s cross-pollinated.”

Iggy Azalea’s collaboration with Jennifer Lopez was ”surreal”.

The ‘Fancy’ hitmaker – who released the video for the pair’s new single ‘Booty’ last week – confessed she found working with the 45-year-old singer hard to come to terms with as she grew up listening to her music.

However, the Aussie-born star was soon put at ease by Jennifer’s ”down to earth” attitude and believes she will stay good friends with her idol following the collaboration.

When asked about the success of the duo’s latest offering, she told E! News: ”I did [expect the video to blow up], but only because I’m a massive fan of Jennifer and, you know, to me she’s iconic, so I think anything she does deserves to be spoken about.

”Jennifer really surprised me. I thought that she would be like a super-diva, and she was so down to earth and lovely and she didn’t have a crazy ride or anything extra, she just got on with it and she was so sweet.

”I feel like I’ve gained a friend out of our collaboration and I had a very surreal moment filming the video with her because she’s somebody that I’ve sung her music back in cars with friends and in bedroom mirrors over the years. It was really great to get to do this with her.”

Meanwhile, Iggy, 24 – who, in addition to Jennifer, has already teamed-up with a host of superstars including Rita Ora, Ariana Grande and T.I – revealed she recently duetted with another ”pop queen” but is keen to keep her identity under wraps.

She explained: ”There’s somebody I’ve had my eye on but we just did a secret collaboration, so I’m hoping we’ll be able to announce that in the next few weeks. Another pop queen that I’m excited about.”

Ariana Grande has been making headlines for her diva behavior, but Iggy Azalea doesn’t think her collaborator have an attitude “problem.”
“She was very nice to me,” the “Fancy” rapper told Celebuzz backstage at the iHeartRadio Music Festival Saturday night. “She’s a sweet, quirky girl.”

“She’s a fire cracker and maybe that could be misunderstood perhaps, but I think she has a very, very kind heart,” Azalea added.

Recent rumors of Grande being quite a diva began when a photographer alleged that the 21-year-old demanded to be shot from one side of her face before storming out from the photo shoot altogether. A father of a Grande fan also claimed that the pint-sized songstress was icy and cold during a meet-and-greet. Days later, Grande was overheard saying that her fans can go “fucking die” after being stopped for autographs.

Iggy Azalea is heading to court over some leaks, and no, it has nothing to do with the rumored sex tape. This lawsuit centers on songs that she says were leaked without her permission.

The “He Ain’t Goin’” rapper filed the case in California court on Wednesday (September 17), according to The Hollywood Reporter. There are a total of nine complaints in the suit, including copyright infringement.

She names multiple defendants, including Maurice Williams, also known as Jefe Wine, who in recent days has made claims that he is in possession of the aforementioned alleged sex tape, as well as a contract that allows him to sell it. Although these items are not explicitly referenced in the complaint, there is a mention of “promotional videos featuring an impersonator of Azalea.”

Iggy’s music is at the heart of this case, specifically a handful of songs that she says she recorded — pre-fame, in 2008 — on her personal computer that were stolen and then released by Williams. There’s also a claim about a forged contract.

The “Fancy” rapper is looking to be repaid in a number of ways, notably with “compensatory damages plus interest at the legal rate.”
