Got to have the booty shot as well! Iggy also showed off her infamous backside as she posed with a friend on the «Fancy» yacht on June 7, 2016. The Australian rapper celebrated her 26th birthday with some fun in the sun while surrounded by friends and family.
Amethyst Amelia Kelly was born in Sydney and brought up in Mullumbimby, New South Wales. Her father, Brendan Kelly, was a painter and comic artist, while her mother, Tanya, cleaned holiday houses and hotels. Azalea lived in a house that her father built by hand from mud-bricks, surrounded by 5 hectares (12 acres) of land. According to Azalea, she has some Aboriginal (Indigenous Australian) ancestry: «My family came to Australia on the First Fleet. My family’s been in that country for a long time, over 100 years. If your family’s lived in Australia for a long time, everyone has a little bit of. I know my family does because we have an eye condition that only Aboriginal people have.» Azalea has also said that her father «made her look at as a teenager», which has always influenced her life and work. She began rapping at age 14. Before embarking on a solo career, Azalea formed a group with two other girls from her neighbourhood: «I was like, I could be the rapper. This could be like TLC. I’ll be Left Eye.» Azalea eventually decided to disband the group because the other girls weren’t taking it seriously: «I take everything I do serious. I’m too competitive.»
