Below are some excerpts from Iggy‘s cover story:
Speaking of seemingly indestructible stuff, remember when Iggy herself was untouchable? Five years ago, “Fancy” was the Grammy-nominated song of the summer you couldn’t get out of your head. She was in a high-profile relationship with NBA player Nick Young, himself famous enough to get away with the nickname Swaggy P. She starred in a Super Bowl commercial, fashion campaigns for Levi’s, Forever 21, and Steve Madden, and one of the year’s most-watched music videos on YouTube. Iggy was getting ready to headline a huge North American tour. She was being readied for the level of stardom reached by other pop-music blondes who go by first names. And then suddenly, she wasn’t.
She lost at the Grammys. Her engagement ended after a cheating scandal that played out like reality TV. (Nick was reportedly caught bragging about sleeping with other women in a leaked video. Iggy later said she also caught him on their home security cameras.) The tour was “rescheduled” and later canceled. She told fans there’d been a “creative change of heart,” the sort of phrase that invites internet conspiracy theories. There was talk of a second studio album—and not surprisingly, record-label drama—but that got put off indefinitely too. Her Twitter feuds (Azealia Banks, Q-Tip, Papa John’s) left her perpetually playing one of two roles: the villain or the punch line. Iggy eventually released some new singles, music videos, and an EP, but it just wasn’t the same.
