1. Iggy Is Debuting a New Song as the SNL Musical Guest Tonight

2. Snoop Dogg Was Recently In a Feud With the Female Rapper
Earlier this month, Snoop Dogg jokingly posted an ugly photo online, labelling it ‘Iggy Azalea with no make up,’ which immediately caught a ton of attention. Iggy and Snoop then began an exchange of Instagram photos and tweets until rapper T.I. stepped in and called Snoop. As a friend to both, T.I. felt he needed to help stop the feud. Snoop then apologized via video on Instagram, but Iggy is reportedly not over the situation. Since their feud, Iggy Azalea has stated that she will never make a song with Snoop Dogg.

3. Her Ex Has Reportedly Been Trying to Shop a Sex Tape of Iggy
Iggy Azalea’s ex, music artist Hefe Wine, has reportedly been trying to sell a sex tape with Iggy.

When confronted by TMZ about the situation, Hefe said that the hard drive to his computer was stolen, but reports tell a different story.
4. Nick Young Is her Boyfriend
Lakers player Nick Young is the boyfriend of Iggy Azalea. He’s had her back through her sex tape battle, through a nude pics scandal of their own, and through Iggy’s feud with the legendary Snoop Dogg. Young’s nickname is Swaggy P., given to himself by God … well, at least, that’s what he says in an Instagram video he posted. Young stated:
Like God came in a dream, talked to me, and he gave me that name. And I was like, ‘You know what, God? That is a funny name and I might need to run with it.’ And ever since then, I’ve been calling myself ‘Swaggy P.’ It’s a household name now.
Young has one child, a son from a previous relationship.
