The Internet is raising eyebrows about Iggy Azalea‘s makeover in her latest video.
The 31-year-old Australian rap artist, who is generally blonde, sports black hair and heavy makeup in “I Am the Stripclub,” launched on Thursday, July 1. After the video struck YouTube, numerous audiences implicated Iggy of “Blackfishing”—or utilizing makeup to look like though she were of African-American descent.
“I don’t care,” the rap artist tweeted on Friday, July 2, in action to a fan who asked her to react to the reaction. “F–k those ppl babe lol.”
She continued, “I’m the same color as I always am, just in a dimly lit room with red lights. It’s the same makeup from every other part of the video just with a Smokey eye and different wig. Just ignore them, who cares? Let em talk.”
Iggy later on tweeted, “I can’t appreciate something that outrageous and unwarranted. I’m using a shade 6 in armarni structure, it’s the exact same shade I’ve used for the last 3 years.
It’s the exact same shade in every video given that sally Walker. Suddenly I use a black wig in a club scene & its a concern.”
