Iggy Azalea 2014 Lollapalooza Day One

Iggy Azalea’s had an incredible year in 2014, but she’s got some high hopes for her future career in the music industry.

Iggy Azalea may have had a pretty epic year in 2014, but she’s under no illusions that longevity in the music industry isn’t guaranteed for every artist.

Iggy spoke out in a recent GQ interview about her future career hopes, “You never know how long you'll be in people's good graces, especially in this business. So I hope it's long - but I could be here for three or four years and then be out, like most artists.” 

“So it depends. I might be here for a long time. At the very worst, if I have a short-lived career, at least I could say I sparked a change - that I inspired some leniency in what people accept in hip-hop. And if I have a very long career and can be gyrating in a leotard at 35, that would be great."

And it’s no wonder Iggy fancies gyrating in a leotard when she revealed who she is taking inspiration from… She explained, “One tour I really love that I didn't go to, unfortunately, was the Madonna ‘Confessions’ tour. I love that tour so much."

"It was actually why I called up Jamie King, who's working on the tour with me - because he left Madonna's tour. I was like, 'I've gotta have the people that were involved in creating this.' I love when the stage changes and transforms." 

While she hopes for a long-term career in the music industry, Iggy doesn’t set many long-term goals for her future. She explained, “Then if they don't happen, you can be disappointed. You might overlook the fact that you might still be having a great life."

"I just set immediate goals for myself; the only thing I'm thinking about at the moment is having a great second album and doing a great job on my tour that I have coming up, because it's my first arena tour. And I'd like it to not be my last arena tour."

We’re sure Iggy Iggs is going to be around for a long while yet!
