Iggy Azalea says “any Grammy is equally as good,” expresses surprise at being nominated four times.
While speaking with Billboard.com prior to this weekend’s 57th Grammy Awards, Aussie musician Iggy Azalea revealed that she isn’t concerned with what Grammy Award she may receive. She explained that they’re all “equally as good” and added that she “will not complain” if she’s awarded one Grammy over another.
“I don’t care if I get a Grammy for best album artwork. A Grammy is a Grammy, baby,” Iggy said while speaking with Billboard.com. “Nobody says, `Uh, what’s your Grammy for? … No, this Grammy doesn’t count.’ Any Grammy is equally as good. I’ll take any Grammy for anything. Any Grammy you’ve got, send them my way. I will not complain.”
She later expressed her shock at being nominated four times at this year’s awards show.
“I didn’t think they would think of me four times. I’m happy they thought of me any times,” the performer said. “There are so many other award shows that I appreciate winning awards for, but I think it really means something special just to be nominated by the people that you work with and are alongside every day. That’s a different thing. It’s a different level of respect.”
Iggy is nominated for Record Of The Year, Best Pop Duo/Group Performance, Best New Artist, and Best Rap Album. Among the artists she faces in the Best Rap Album category are Common, Eminem, Childish Gambino, ScHoolboy Q, and Wiz Khalifa.
Following the announcement of the Grammy nominees, a number of artists have come forward to share their thoughts on Iggy Azalea being nominated for Best Rap Album. Earlier this week, DJ Skee revealed that there would “be riots in the streets” if Iggy were to win.
“If she wins there’s going to be riots in the streets. If you thought it was bad when Macklemore beat Kendrick last year,” DJ Skee said while on a panel for AXS TV.
