Iggy Azalea Talks No. 1 Album and Cleaning Houses on ‘Chelsea Lately’

Iggy Azalea and Chelsea Handler

Hot on the heels of her debut album The New Classic, Iggy Azalea stopped by “Chelsea Lately” on Tuesday for some girl talk. The comedienne congratulated the Aussie hitmaker on becoming the first white woman to have a No. 1 rap album.

“I’m sure Eminem probably did it a few times. I’m the first white person with a vagina,” said Iggy, whose single “Fancy” recently went platinum.

When she was 16, Iggy moved to Miami on her own to pursue her career. While she didn’t graduate from high school, she did get her GED. But she hopes one day she will be able to get an honorary degree.

After dropping out of school, she paid her bills by cleaning houses (She once found poop on a doormat).

But you won’t find a mess at Iggy’s house. When it comes to cleaning, she’s OCD. “My own house, I’m really anal about and people hate that,” said Iggy.

See her chop it up with Chelsea below.
