Iggy Azalea is prepared to rock The Forum on August 24th for her Video Music Awards performance.
The Australian rapper is set to perform her new single Black Widow with fellow star Rita Ora. The duo released a music video for the song, taking on jump suits and swords, paying homage to the likes of Uma Thurman from Kill Bill.
Azalea was deemed with the "MTV Artist To Watch" at last years VMA's, and she has been nothing but fun to watch. Her song Fancy featuring Charli XCX has broken the Billboard Hot 100 record of being the longest running no. 1 hit by a female rapper. Her other two singles, Black Widow and Work, have also performed well on the Billboard charts, making sure the rapper is not a one hit wonder.
This year at the VMAs, Azalea is making her presence known. She has gathered a total of seven nominations, including: Video Of The Year, Best Female Pop Song, Best Art Direction, Best Female Video and Best Pop Video. Within one year, the star was able to go from "artist to watch" to her current status as one of the leading nominees at the VMAs.
Azalea and Ora have performed Black Widow at various festivals, including the Wireless Festival in London on July 4. The two have become friends it seems, with Rita Ora nominating Iggy in the ice bucket ALS challenge. Stay tuned to see if Azalea and Ora bring out the jumpsuits for the performance on Sunday, August 24, 2014.
