Blonde rapping sensation Iggy Azalea is no Nicki Minaj, but she doesn't have to be -- there is plenty of room in the female rapper department for both of them. Still, I kind of love the insanity that Iggy is an Australian who raps like she's from the dirty South. And that song Fancy with Charli XCX ... I might know all the words. Shhh.
Both ladies are performing at the VMAs. Last night there was a mishap with Minaj when one of her dancers was bit by a 6-foot-long snake during the rehearsal. It was an anaconda that was clearly supposed to be dancing around with them during the song Anaconda but instead sssssank it'ssssss teeth into ssssomeone. Yikessssss. Well today, it was Iggy's turn for something to go wrong. Azalea took a tumble off the stage while performing Fancy.
First things first, she's the realest. Iggy, being such a good sport, shared the video of her BIG step off stage with fans. She wrote: "Sorry but it would be a crime not to share this with you all, I know I laughed. #StillFinishedtheSongTho #KeptOnRapping #TheShowMustGoOn"
I'm only laughing because she is laughing. Otherwise, that would be rude. Iggy was at the Avalon in Los Angeles for a pre-VMA show when this happened. Thankfully, she's okay and said she's "very blessed" that she didn't break her legs. Security guards helped her up after her fall and she was back onstage quickly. As she said, she kept on rapping. Hardcore!
I'm glad she's okay since she's set to perform Black Widow with Rita Ora at the VMAs on Sunday.
Did you laugh, too?
