Iggy Azalea started out 2016 in a rough patch with a breakup and an album delay but the singer quickly turned things around for the better and finds herself GQ Australia’s Woman of the Year. She recently spoke about the honor at an awards ceremony at The Ivy ballroom in Sydney.
“Thank you so much. I didn’t realize everyone was going to have such hilarious speeches and I didn’t prepare anything this week,” she admitted. “I just want to give a big thank you to GQ for this award. I’ve won a lot of awards over the last few years, but this one means the absolute most to me because I can finally say I have an award winning vagina. Thank you.”
While some were miffed about her speech, in her cover story with GQ, Azalea further explained what she really meant.
“I’m excited [about my award]. I like to call it ‘Vagina of the Year’ though. I don’t know why it cracks me up, I just think it’s funny to reduce myself down to a vagina sometimes,” she shares. “‘Vagina of the Year’ is a big achievement, number one Australian p—-. People won’t get the joke, but it’s funny because [in the media] women are reduced to vaginas. Some days I’m a vagina, others I’m a human.”
