Rapper Iggy Azalea Gives Up Crowd Surfing After Sexual Assault Threats
Rapper Iggy Azalea may explore sexual content in her songs, but that doesn't mean she wants to be randomly assaulted by her fans.
The 23-year-old singer told a New York City radio station this week that she stopped crowd surfing at her shows for fear of being sexually attacked.
I will get lurk tweets for like a week before my show, like 'I'm about to go to the Iggy Azalea show and I'm going to finger her,' and I'll see it and be like, please don't!," she said. "That's a violation. I don't actually like that stuff."
"Like, they think I'm real 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?" Azalea said. "Buying my album for $12 doesn't mean you get to finger me when I come to your city.
The singer, who now wears three layers under her pants, says female fans also think it's appropriate to grope her sexually in concert.
