“If I have a short-lived career, at least I could say I sparked a change”

Longevity in hip-hop is hard to come by, and Iggy Azalea is all too aware.

“You never know how long you’ll be in people’s good graces, especially in this business,” the “Fancy” rapper told GQ. “So I hope [my career is] long— but I could be here for three or four years and then be out, like most artists.”

While she’s hoping to still “be gyrating in a leotard at 35,” the Aussie emcee isn’t stressed about how long her career lasts. As Azalea tells it, she’s already cemented her legacy and changed the genre.

“At the very worst, if I have a short-lived career, at least I could say I sparked a change—that I inspired some leniency in what people accept in hip-hop,” she says.

For a rapper who’s faced relentless criticism for her rapping style from hip-hop fans—criticism she’s dismissed as sexist — Azalea’s comments might be easy to dismiss at first. But even the Roots’ drummer Questlove told TIME as much last summer when discussing her success and worldwide influence.

“I will say that ‘Fancy,’ above any song that I’ve ever heard or dealt with, is a game-changer. … We’re truly going to have to come to grips with the fact that hip-hop has spread its wings,” he said.

Let’s unscrew Iggy Azalea, human Vegemite. The salty Australian export is an acquired taste, as passionately adored as she is derided by nose-pinching purists. But Iggy’s lippy, exuberantly defiant belief that white women can rap—specifically white six-foot-tall ex-maids with the acid-tripped Technicolor stylings of Saved by the Bell—has earned her four Grammy nominations, four smash singles, and a take-that chart record that is shared only by the Beatles—that record being for simultaneously charting songs at No. 1 and No. 2 as her first two singles, one of which comes off her earwormy debut, The New Classic. She talks to us about interior decorating, Madonna’s tour, and what helps shield against the hate.

GQ: You did a lot in 2014, and you’re up for four Grammys. What’s ahead?
Iggy Azalea: I try not to have too many different goals, because then if they don’t happen, you can be disappointed. You might overlook the fact that you might still be having a great life. I just set immediate goals for myself; the only thing I’m thinking about at the moment is having a great second album and doing a great job on my tour that I have coming up, because it’s my first arena tour. And I’d like it to not be my last arena tour.

On Friday Iggy Azalea took her new $275,000 Ferrari 458 for a spin as she grabbed lunch with Vogue editor Lynn Yaeger and went shopping at Barneys in Beverly Hills. Um, sounds like the perfect day to us! And look at that ride!

She while she kept her look fairly casual, with ripped jeans, a striped grey sweater, booties and a bolo hat. We know Snoop Dogg (or Lion, whatever) slammed her earlier this year, but we don’t get it — we think she’s a babe!
