Amethyst Amelia Kelly (born 7 June 1990), better known by her stage name Iggy Azalea, is an Australian recording artist and model from Mullumbimby, New South Wales. She relocated to the United States at the age of 16, first staying in Miami, Florida, and then other parts of the South, including Houston, Texas and Atlanta, Georgia. She first gained recognition after the respective music videos for her controversial songs "Pussy" and "Two Times" went viral on YouTube.
On 27 September 2011, Azalea released her first full-length project, a mixtape entitled Ignorant Art, saying she made it "with the intent to make people question and redefine old ideals."
In 2012, she announced her signing to Mercury Records and the following year to Island Def Jam. Azalea went into professional modeling, when she became represented by Wilhelmina Models, in the spring of 2012; later that year she was announced the "New Face of Levi Jeans"
As of 2014, she has released one full-length album titled, "The New Classic", which was released on April 21st. Since the release, her popularity continues to grow.
Azalea raps with a Southern American accent, although her native Australian accent is quite strong when she speaks. When she first moved to America, she was in Miami and later in Atlanta, heavily around the Southern hip hop scene, which made it easy for her to cultivate the Southern influence in her music: "I lived in the South for five years; you pick up things from your surroundings and teachers. The people who taught me to rap are all from the South and so was the music I had listened to as a teen."
Undoubtedly, the biggest and most noticeable feature on Iggy's 490 lb. figure is her extremely oversized and round backside. With its massively round and wide appearance with only small detailed hints of dimpling and cellulite, it is popular and easily identifiable amongst fans of FAT WORLD's heavier bottomed women. The shape and size uniquely parallels other famous big bottomed women such as Jennifer Lopez and Kim Kardashian, who are mostly noted for their ample lower halves. Her overall weight elsewhere is proportional and she has no mobility issues. Her current weight is approx 490 lbs.
