Iggy Azalea reveals that fans were touching her inappropriately when she crowd-surfed at her shows, so she no longer crowd-surfs.
Iggy Azalea is currently on the road promoting and performing her albumThe New Classic, which just dropped two days ago. She's probably used to the whole performance routine at this point, although there are some things a lady just cannot get used too and thus were cut from the show-- to put it bluntly, Iggy found fans (both male and female) were attempting to finger whenever she crowd-surfed, so she no longer crowd-surfs.
Ms. Azalea revealed the fact in a recent interview with Hot 97. "I had to stop [crowd-surfing]. On my tour I only do 200 seaters but I still have to have barriers because people try to finger me," she said. This wasn't always an "in-the-moment" thing, she says people were actually tweeting her prior to a show with their plans of sexual assault (i.e. "I am going to go to the Iggy Azalea show next week and I’m going to finger her"). Iggy says, "I’ll see the tweets and be like, please don't! That’s a violation. I don’t actually like that stuff."
Perhaps fans got the wrong impression because of Iggy's break-out track "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," Iggy told Peter Rosenberg and Ebro.
She added later, "Buying me album for $12 doesn’t mean you get to finger me when I come to your city."
Iggy is protecting herself by wearing multiple layers at all her shows. Peep the interview clip below.
