Iggy Azalea: Why doesn't Eminem get any backlash like me? He's white.

Iggy spoke to Power 106: "Don't try to say that I'm a racist! ...If I did have a penis, I'd stick it at the back of your throat."

On how she has been "unfairly accused" of appropriating culture, but not Eminem:
“I found it to be kind of ironic. It was because I’m white, therefore I’m appropriating culture. But then Eminem won it – who’s white and won it many times – and they didn’t seem to say anything about that.”

Iggy claims her anti-Asian, anti-black, anti-Mexican tweets are photoshopped & fake:
"Having to deal with people photoshopping things that I say, and then other people really thinking that they're true. Like 'n-word this' or 'I hate every race'. Tweet about me hating asian people, black people - I hate everyone, apparently. That annoyed me. Nobody wants to be called a racist...Nobody wants to feel like they're Hitler. That was weak. That was lame."

On her haters:
"You just want an excuse to hate me. Don't try to say that I'm a racist! ...If I did have a penis, I'd stick it at the back of your throat."

On how she would have rejected the Grammy if she won:
“I did not want to win that award. My speech would have been like, ‘Fuck this! I don’t want it! Take it! Get away from me!'. I’m glad I didn’t win because people already hate me enough. I do not need to be hated any more.”

On how people still harass her even after her Grammy loss:
"Are you ever going to leave me alone? I lost. You should be happy. Shit. Bye."

On how the Grammys overlook hip hop:
"I feel hip hop was overlooked. I am disappointed about that...everything we do is influenced by it one way or another...We did not have that represented...But I'm really happy that I was thought of."
