Iggy Azalea about her dancer having a seizure during her performance in Rio! 🇧🇷 pic.twitter.com/wS3rGCMSIr— IGGY AZALEA DATA (@IggyData) January 4, 2019
A follow up to this post.
Former Australian rap star Iggy Azalea stops by Rap 77 and discusses her performance from last week in Brazil when her dancer passed out during “Black Widow” and started having a epileptic seizure on stage. Azalea was heavily criticized for continuing to perform and rap after calling for a medic to the stage.
“I assumed she’d fallen over, and my other dancer was leaning over her so I couldn’t tell that she was passed out.”
Azalea adds that she thought her dancer had rolled her ankle and that to some it may seem “mean” to continue performing but that “that’s the standard procedure for a performance.” She says dancers fall all the time but performers keep going. In that moment, she had no idea that her dancer was having a seizure. It wasn’t until they got off stage and her dancer was being loaded into the ambulance that Iggy then saw that she was shaking.
Her dancer thankfully is doing well but remembers nothing from that night.
