Exclusive! Iggy Azalea Talks “The New Classic”: “I’m Not Mariah…Yet!”

Iggy Azalea is more than Fancy, she’s number ONE!

The Australian rapper just dropped her long-awaited debut album, The New Classic, and it immediately hit the #1 spot on iTunes. To promote her new project, Iggy took her “Fancy” self to Good Morning America and performed her hit single with Charli XCX.

While Azalea is riding high now, her road leading up to this point was filled with low points. After walking away from her Interscope deal, Iggy had to take a step back, head overseas and rebuild her career one show at a time. The “Murda Bizness” rapper showed that tenacity and perseverance win in the end and now she’s signed to Def Jam with a hit album on her hands!

HipHollywood spoke to Iggy at VH1 Divas in 2012 and at the time she was still surprised by her fame, eager to drop her album and hoping to one day be like Mariah Carey!

After taking a listen to Iggy’s album we were surprised that Tyga wasn’t featured. Hmmm, we wonder what happened to that collabo.

What ‘Geostorm’s’ Gerard Butler & Abbie Cornish Wish They Could Control Via Satellite

Published

on

One of the many taglines for the new drama, Geostorm, is simply: “Some things weren’t meant to be controlled.”

The film follows a team comprised of world leaders that have one goal in mind: to save the world from natural disasters with the creation of Dutch Boy, a series of satellite grids that control weather and natural disasters around the world.

And while the movie is flooded with action and stellar performances, the film ironically rivals recent natural disasters and crises around the world, and welcomes a bigger conversation. “That’s the genus behind the movie,” the film’s star, Gerard Butler, told HipHollywood. “But nobody knew how acutely it was going to be happening when the movie came out.”

He added, “It’s fun, it’s epic, it’s exciting, but at its core, it’s like, listen, ‘We gotta be careful. We gotta be really careful.”

Co-star Jim Sturgess added. “There is this sort of backbone, a message about climate change, and you kind of hope that audience members leave with that somewhere in the consciousness.”

With the idea, however, that a large unit could control the world’s natural weather patterns, imagine if the same could apply for people’s personal lives.

So when HipHollywood sat down with the cast of the film, we asked: If you could have a grid of satellites over your personal life, what would it control?

For Abbie Cornish, she “wouldn’t mind a satellite that could bring all the local organic seasonal fruits and vegetables to my house ” or “a satellite to drop down fresh flowers.” Jim Sturgess suggested he would love help with “being late for things.”

But it was Butler who suggested “integration.”

He explained, “As opposed to having different satellites and saying, ‘Here’s one for my personal life, here’s one for my relationships, here’s one for my career; I’d rather just have one big satellite, combine them all together, and just shine a whole bunch of positive inspirational light on me as a whole.”

Geostorm hits theaters on Friday, October 20.
