Iggy Azalea reveals sexual assault from crowd made her quit crowd-surfing
The Australian rapper said both men and women have tried to assault her
Iggy Azalea has revealed she has stopped crowd-surfing during her live shows due to being sexually assaulted by her fans.
The Australian rapper, 23, said she was being assaulted by both men and women at her shows.
She said: “I had to stop [crowd-surfing]. On my tour I do 2,000 seaters but I still have to have barriers because people try to finger me.”
Azalea revealed she got “lurk tweets” weeks before her shows saying things like: “I am going to go to the Iggy Azalea show next week and I’m going to finger her.”
She said: “I’ll see the tweets and be like, please don’t! That’s a violation. I don’t actually like that stuff.”
She told New York City radio station Hot 97 that people thought she was a slut because she has a single called “Pu$$y”.
“They think I’m really slutty, like ‘Oh, she got a song called Pu$$y,’ I know what she wants. She wants these two fingers.’ Why would I want a stranger to ever finger me,” she said.
“Buying me album for $12 doesn’t mean you get to finger me when I come to your city,” she added.
The rapper said she now wears two pairs of underwear and skin-coloured tights as a “protective barrier”.
