Iggy Azalea is distraught after YouTube fails to promote racy Sip It music video – Daily Mail


Iggy Azalea has been left reeling after her explicit music video for new single Sip It failed to make it into YouTube’s top trending videos.

The Australian rapper slammed the video streaming website on Twitter this week, claiming that her livelihood was being affected as an independent artist. 

‘So YouTube won’t recommended my video or add it to trending because of the “content in the video”,’ she tweeted.

‘I’ve waited 48 hours and still can’t get a real answer from anyone at YouTube about why they have far more controversial videos in their trending list as we speak.’

She continued: ‘I’m really disappointed because I’m indie and I depend on things like that for streaming. 

‘I sent my video in to their staff a week prior and they told me it was perfect, no issues.’

‘I don’t really feel like it’s fair, and I really wish someone at @youtube would resolve it,’ she concluded.

Sip It is arguably the raciest music video Iggy has ever released in her eight-year career.

In the clip, the 30-year-old twerks in a convenience store while wearing a sheer, multi-coloured bodysuit and G-string.

There also stripping scenes involving the rapper’s backup dancers, including one raunchy lap dance that results in one woman putting her head between Iggy’s legs.

Another scene sees Iggy pour a carton of milk over a twerking stripper’s backside.

The lyrics rival Cardi B’s raunchy hit WAP, with references to oral sex, one night stands, and flirting with other rappers.

‘F**k him on top, big b**bs, no training bra,’ Iggy raps in the song’s opening verse.

‘Rappers in my phone, in my DM, won’t leave me alone,’ she continues. ‘Sip this p***y like it’s Styrofoam.’

Iggy, whose real name is Amethyst Amelia Kelly, was born in Sydney before moving to Miami to pursue her rap career at 16.

After living in Florida and Los Angeles for several years, Iggy now resides permanently in Atlanta.

In the past, she has been less than complimentary about her home country.

In September 2018, Iggy said she wouldn’t be touring Down Under because it’s too hard to turn a profit there.

Responding to a fan on Twitter, she wrote: ‘It’s a hard one to profit from honestly, it’s far, and would have to be part of a bigger group of shows in Asia etc etc.’

Speaking to the Herald Sun in January 2016, Iggy indicated she was happy to no longer be living in Australia.

‘I mean, to be honest with you, my home is in America,’ she said. ‘It’s great to come back [to Australia] and visit my grandparents, but there is no home connection.’
