Iggy Azalea was forced to quit crowd surfing after allegedly being sexually assaulted by fans
Iggy Azalea was forced to quit crowd surfing after allegedly being sexually assaulted by fans.
The 'Fancy' hitmaker claims she used to be attacked when she jumped off stage and would often see followers on Twitter post about plans to assault her at gigs.
She told New York radio station Hot 97: "I had to stop. 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 f***er her', and I'll see it and be like, 'Please don't! That's a violation. I don't actually like that stuff'. They think I'm really sl***y like, 'She's got a song called Pu$$y, I know what she wants."
The 'Change Your Life' rapper insists usually female fans who try to assault her more than men because they think it's acceptable.
She explained: "Girls will try to do it more than guys 'cause they think it's cool, like, 'We've both got vaginas, it's fine'. Doesn't make it OK.
"Buying my album for $12 doesn't mean you get to f***er me when I come to your city."
The 23-year-old star now has barriers at her shows to keep opportunists away and has taken to wearing more clothes to protect herself.
She said: "I wear, no lie, two pairs on underpants and then a pair of skin-coloured tights and then my pants as like a protection barrier, because there's just no way I'm going to be intruded."
