Eminem in his new song have threatened to rape Iggy.
Iggy Azalea is an Australian rapper who started her career at the age of 16. She became famous for her controversial songs ‘Pussy’ and ‘Two times’. Since the Iggy has become quite famous and is the only fourth solo female rapper to top the Hot 100.
Recently the famous rapper Eminem in his new song ‘Vegas’ has gone as far as threatening Iggy of a rape. The song is part of his new album Shady XV and was released on November 19th.
The 42 year old rapper has targeted Iggy and the lyrics used are disturbing and offensive. “So swallow my pride you’re lucky just to follow my ride. If I let you run alongside the Humvee. Unless you’re Nicki, grab you by the wrist, let’s ski. So what’s it gon’ be? Put that s*** away Iggy.”
You don’t wanna blow that rape whistle on me. Scream! I love it. ‘Fore I get lost with the gettin’ off”, this is what he rapped in the new song. Well we all know that Eminem has always rapped like this and loves to use such lyrics and target celebrities.
His song with Rihanna ‘Love the Way You Lie’, has used such explicit lyrics but this time it seems that Eminem has crossed the line and gone too far in the quest to give another hit. Some previous targets of the rapper have been female artists such as Kim Kardashian, Christina Aguilera, Lindsay Lohan, Jessica Simpson, Amy Winehouse and Britney Spears.
However Iggy is one strong woman and knows how to deal with such things. We saw Iggy take it to Twitter where she has criticized the rapper for his derogatory remarks for her. Iggy also believes that the rapper through these lyrics has also degraded women in general.
She tweeted, “im bored of the old men threatening young women as entertainment trend and much more interested in the young women getting $ trend. Zzzz.”

Iggy has made it clear that if someone attacks her or women in general she will not sit back and watch rather she is going to respond in a strong manner. Iggy also called Eminem’s approach not only as ill-mannered and offensive but also uninspired.
She tweeted, “Its especially akward because my 14 year old brother is the biggest eminem fan and now the artist he admired says he wants to rape me. nice!” She tried to show Eminem that such songs and lyrics are not going to make him a role model or famous but rather harm his image.

Also keeping in mind the recent target of Eminem, Lana Del Ray, whom Eminem targeted in his song by mentioning that he would like punching Lana in the face, Iggy tweeted once again stating that how women in the industry are stronger.
She tweeted, “Women in music have the bigger balls anyhow we endure much more harassment and critic.”

So true Iggy in this regard, as women in the industry to take more shit than the men. Iggy was recently also involved in another feud with Snoop Dogg and also faced it like a woman with balls.
Whatever you say Eminem has gone too far with his so called genius lyrics and we have to give it to Iggy for the strong stand she has taken on Twitter.
