In (what I saw as) yet another carefully crafted attempt at humility; the very serious, very professional break out star known as Iggy Azalea made the following statement to GQ magazine:
“If I have a very long career and can be gyrating in a leotard at 35, that would be great. You never know how long you’ll be in people’s good graces, especially in this business. I hope it’s long — but I could be here for three or four years and then be out, like most artists”
This statement got the wheels spinning for me, personally, because not only do I have spin radar, otherwise known as “spin-dar”…but I CANNOT think of too many successful female artists who fell off the ra-dar after a few years. I’m not trying to DISPROVE her THEORY…but I do want to put it to the test with you!
I would love to know what you think about her statement: Do the majority of female Hip Hop stars disappear after just a few years? Let me get this party started by listing five Hip Hop divas, and their discographies to boot, who have been around for well over half a decade:Embed from Getty Images Embed from Getty Images Embed from Getty Images Embed from Getty Images Embed from Getty Images

Hey, don’t get me wrong. I like Iggy Azalea’s new album and think she is beautiful…she already has a modelling contract and clothing line…so, she’ll probably do ok in the end. It’s all down to her talent and longevity…just don’t blame the industry, darling!Embed from Getty Images
