Australian rapper Iggy Azalea has opened up about joining OnlyFans, saying she’s “making so much money”.
The 32-year-old appeared on Emily Ratajkowski’s podcast High Low where she spoke about joining the fan-subscription site last month with a project she calls “Hotter Than Hell”.
“I’m making so much money that I won’t even say how much it is,” the Fancy hitmaker said.
“I made a lot of people so much money off my body, and I got the smallest cut off my own f***ing body and my own work and my own ideas.
“And I don’t think I have to say sorry about the fact that I want to commodify my own s**t. So f***k this.”
Iggy went on to say it was "scary" when she sat down on her first day of joining OnlyFans.
“I’m someone who shows my breasts or my nudity, I don’t really have a problem with being overtly sexual when I’m in control of it and when I feel it has artistic merit,” she continued.
“Every platform is so censored so it makes sense to use this platform.”
Iggy said within two days of joining OnlyFans any of her fears surrounding the platform evaporated and she was so glad she had signed up.
Speaking of people’s reaction to her career move, Iggy said: “Everyone was like, ‘She must be doing so bad, down bad.’ And I was like, ‘Definitely not down, definitely not doing bad,’ but it’s funny to me seeing that reaction.
“I knew I would obviously get that reaction but it was just funny to me because I was like, ‘Oh you can’t possibly conceive the notion that a woman would want to do this of her own volition rather than necessity. That’s interesting.”
It’s a career pivot for Iggy, who burst onto the music scene in 2014 with her album The New Classic,
“I stopped making music because it felt in ways that it was redundant,” Iggy said. “I didn’t really know at the time how to grow and show that I’ve grown as a person or a woman or in my age and my life experience and I didn’t really understand how to incorporate that in a way that was still interesting .”
Iggy welcomes her son Onyx Kelly into the world in 2020 and split with her partner Playboi Carti soon after.
"Right after I had my son I left his father, within the third week," she explained.
"Something happened one day and it was just one of those moments where you're just like 'I didn't wake up thinking that this is what my day would be' but by the end of the day I was a plane to Los Angeles and never went back and that was the end of it."
