Video: Iggy Azalea f/ Charli XCX – ‘Fancy’

Iggy Azalea

Nearly 20 years after Clueless hit theaters, Iggy Azalea pays homage to the 1995 cult classic in the cinematic video for “Fancy” co-starring Charli XCX. The Aussie rap sensation rules the halls of Beverly Hills High School as socialite Cher Horowitz (Alicia Silverstone) in the X-directed clip.

The blonde bombshell filmed at the same high school where Clueless was shot, inviting 250 fans to be a part of the video. She rocked a ’90s wardrobe straight out of Cher’s designer closet and even shut down the freeway while recreating one scene.

“Iggy and her whole generation kinda grew up on this movie in a way that’s really personal,” said X.

Her debut The New Classic arrives April 15 featuring collaborations with T.I., Mavado, Watch the Duck, and Katy Perry, who co-wrote her next single.

Watch Iggy bring back the ’90s in her, like, totally awesome mini-movie.

Album Cover: Iggy Azalea – ‘The New Classic’

The New Classic

Fresh off announcing her North American tour, Iggy Azalea unveils the cover for her debut The New Classic. The blonde bombshell stuns in a colorful Pucci bodysuit and jacket as she stands in front of a peach house.

The album arrives April 15 featuring the singles “Work,” the T.I.-assisted “Change Your Life,” and “Fancy” with Charli XCX. If you pre-order on March 4, you will receive the instant gratification track “Impossible Is Nothing.”

In a 2012 interview with MTV, the Aussie rapper explained the album title. “What makes something classic is when you hear it and you have that moment that is a time capsule,” she said. “When I say The New Classic, I just want to make records that give you that moment for fans that they can remember where they were when they heard it.”

Iggy Azalea and Nick Young

Iggy Azalea and her boyfriend Nick Young are heating up the pages of GQ. The blonde bombshell and L.A. Lakers swingman show off their budding romance in a sexy spread for the magazine’s March issue.

Draped from head-to-toe in Versace, the new “It” couple gaze into each other’s eyes while holding his and her basketballs and make out on the bathroom counter. In one photo, the Aussie rapper takes it all off as she sits in a clear bathtub while her tatted boo stands by her side.

The two connected on social media after Nick declared Iggy his #WomanCrushWednesday.

“Nick’s really goofy and funny,” said Iggy of her man, whose nickname is Swaggy P. “I always joke with him, ‘I hope we don’t break up because you’d ruin basketball for me.’”

When asked who gets more attention, Nick said, “Iggy because of the way she dresses and her, uh, figure. It’s hard to top that, ya know?”
