Iggy Azalea Loves Her “Sickening” Album Cover

0 252

Iggy Azalea has finally come out with some fresh new rap songs! But obviously there are controversies involved. Her much-delayed upcoming album, “In My Defense”, has been anticipated for a very long time. But what fans didn’t see coming was its explicitly graphic album cover. It depicts Azalea covered in blood at the scene of what looks like a murder.

The Australian star took to her social media pages on Monday to share the controversial artwork. It shows Iggy Azalea slumped against a car, apparently dead, with blood behind her head, as if she has been shot.

It’s no surprise that people were taken aback by all the blood and gore in the images. After she posted them, her followers bombarded her with messages, many of whom thought the cover was too graphic. The young female rapper has been involved in controversies in the past too, but it’s been a while since she has made any headlines. One of her fans wrote:

“Please don’t hate me but I don’t like it, you look dead”

While another added:

“But wait, this is sickening”.

Iggy Azalea Defends Album Cover

However, Azalea defended it as an expression of her true self. She said she was thrilled about the upcoming album, perhaps more so than she’s ever been about past music. She has put in a lot of hard work into “In My Defense” so it’s no surprise that she’s so proud of it. Moreover, she seems to think that “sickening” is a compliment. After all, the term “sick” can be interpreted in two completely different ways.

And as if the images we were already shown weren’t enough, she went on to share another glorious one:

Followers have speculated what Iggy Azalea is trying to portray through this new music and the accompanying artwork. Music can obviously be interpreted in more than one ways but it’s always interesting to see where the artist was coming from. When asked whether the message is about re-birth, she responded:

Her statement hints the kind of empowering message that might be expected from the album. If the album cover depicts vulnerability and weakness, then perhaps the message in the music will be able to show retaliation, strength and resilience. She’s undeniably passionate about the project and excited to share it with her fans. We hope the album will justify all this hype and break expectations.

The album is set to be released on July 19. We’re looking forward to see what Iggy Azalea has in store.
