It looks like female rapper Iggy Azalea will be headed back to her homeland of Australia pretty soon! Iggy has just landed herself a position on The X Factor, which is a British reality show where talents compete against one another for a shot at becoming the nation’s next big music sensation. Iggy will be serving as a judge on the show, replacing Dannii Minogue, who has been a judge and mentor for the past seven years. Although those are pretty big shoes to fill, the Fancy rapper feels as though she can take on the challenge.
“I understand what it’s like to have giant dreams and intend to help other young Australians achieve theirs by sharing my knowledge and developing their talent in collaboration with The X Factor,” Iggy said in a statement.
However, sources do say that the Aussie beauty was hesitant at first, as she has never sat on a judging panel for a television show before.
“I really didn’t picture myself being a judge on any kind of television show, but I think that this could actually be a good fit for me so I said yes,” she said.
Iggy says that this will be an amazing opportunity for her to go back home, enjoy some time with her family (who lives in Sydney), as well as take on a new business venture. We congratulate Iggy and wish her the best!
