Iggy Azalea, Ariana Grande, and Angel Haze Star in ELLE’s Women in Music Issue

Iggy Azalea

ELLE celebrates pop’s leading ladies in its seventh annual Women in Music issue. From Cher to Iggy Azalea, the stars don designer threads while speaking their minds on everything from feminism to the media.

The “Fancy” rapper models crystal embellished sleeves and shorts by Maison Martin Margiela in her fierce photo.

“I never dove into my personal experiences. I didn’t want to be vulnerable,” says Iggy, whose debut The New Classic arrives Tuesday. “I always felt like [rap] was escapism, but sometimes you can miss being human.”

Angel Haze poses in a silk fringe top by Dolce & Gabbana and speaks about sharing her personal struggles through her music.

“I came out of the gate projectile vomiting my demons all over the place,” explains the Dirty Gold rapper. “It felt like immediately a weight had been lifted.”

Rocking a jacquard parka by Alexander Wang, 20-year-old Ariana Grande poses for her black-and-white close-up.

“If something great happens, I celebrate it for about—I’m not even kidding—a minute and a half,” reveals Ariana, whose new single “Problem” will debut on April 26. “Then I start thinking about the next step.”

    @Marie Kanker, To be quite honest, I liked Iggy’s picture until I saw them all. The three of them look like a freak show at the circus, and I speak objectively because I’m a big fan of Angel Haze. This is supposed to be the Women (in music)’s Issue so one might expect something that’s a little more empowering, but this is completely off of the mark.
    While Iggy’s look could have been high fashion, those embellished sleeves are wearing her as opposed to her wearing them. Because of this, the look is stunted and anticlimactic. The stylist did her completely wrong.
    Ariana Grande perpetuating her faux innocence persona to clumsy effect. She looks like she’s taking photos in a photo booth which is another way to say that she looks like a basic (let-me-steal-Mariah’s-sound) bitch.
    Angel Haze needs to stop with that colored weave. Her picture could have been fine had she not had that damn weave. That weave bothered me in the Battle Cry video and now it resurfaces with explosive ambition. I don’t think the weave is advancing her image in any way, and I think that she’s most authentic without it.

    @KENBARBUK, THAT FLOP TRAMSTAMP Nicki Minaj WON’T be able to SUCCEED now that she is about to have COMPETITION, it was EASY for her to win the race when no one else was there to RUN , but NOW she has BITCHES RUN AGAINST she won’t have it EASY!! NICKI IS SCARED OF A MAINSTREAM FEMALE RAPPER GAINING ATTENTION, that’s why SHE NEVER supports mainstream female rappers

    @Oh, I agree. Nicki does not embrace the female rappers of her era. The guys in the rap game all can jump on a track with no egos. Nicki isolates herself because she does not want to stand next to another female rapper unless that female rapper is off the radar like Trina. I like Trina but it’s true. She wouldn’t rock with Trina if Trina wasn’t praising her. Nicki appears to be insecure. I am starting to realize what Lil’ Kim meant in her Breakfast Club interview. Nicki don’t want it to be a ladies rule type thing. She wants it to be only HER.

    @Oh, Don’t speak in absolutes and pluralities when they don’t apply.
    “Mainstream Female Rappers” – At the moment, Iggy is the only mainstream female rapper and she’s hardly established as one. One doesn’t simply decide to be mainstream, one becomes mainstream through popularization through the masses.
    Nicki doesn’t support Iggy because Iggy has made shady and disrespectful comments about Nicki on multiple accounts when she knew that those comments wouldn’t be received or interpreted well regardless of the context. Iggy gets no support from Nicki because Iggy is a living contradiction in all of the wrong ways.
    If Iggy sales well this will somehow damage Nicki’s sales? Retrace your logic.

    @Oh, Top 30 ain’t shit, especially when you take into account the fact that her hype is at its peak right now until she is recognized for the cornball that she is. The last time a solo Nicki record was in the Top 30 was the last time she released one, so how about that?
    You’re saying she can’t handle it as if she has commented about it at all . . which she hasn’t . . because she doesn’t care. Time will tell for the New Classic, but it isn’t moving beyond 100,000 first week so it’s still not even on Nicki’s radar. Try again

    @Mandela Barb, Nobody is expecting her to have 100k first week. Nicki prolly wont even get 100K first week with her wack ass. Nicki is a fucking flop EVERY feature she had done hasn’t even been Top 10 . Her Lookin Ass Niggas song dont even have 10 million views yet and it’s been out for like 2 months LMFAOOOO aint nobody checkin for Nicki like yall think. That bitch been stuck at 17 million followers for like 2 years now
