Iggy Azalea: “Why would I want a stranger to ever f****r me?”

Too many people have been trying to finger Iggy Azalea at her shows, which some f***ed up people might see that as being victimless, so don’t expect to see her go for a quick crowd surf. She’s had enough.

In fact, even at her small shows, she’s had to put crowd barriers in place. Azalea told New York City hip hop radio station Hot 97 that she has had no other choice but to upgrade her security at live gigs because her fans have tried to grope her. “I will get lurk tweets for like a week before my show, like ‘I’m about to go to the Iggy Azalea show and I’m going to f****r her,’ and I’ll see it and be like, please don’t! That’s a violation. I don’t actually like that stuff,” she said. She also added that the attempts to grope her were common among female fans.“Girls will try to do it more than guys ‘cause girls think it’s cool, like, ‘We both got vaginas, it’s fine’. Doesn’t make it okay.”

Azalea emphasised her fans had no right to think that they were allowed to touch her inappropriately, just because of the explicit nature of her songs. “Like, they think I’m real sl***y, like ’Oh, she got a song called ‘P***y,’ I know what she wants. She wants these two fingers,” she said. “Why would I want a stranger to ever f****r me? Buying my album for $12 doesn’t mean you get to f****r me when I come to your city”.

Kate and Willliam

Hots Djs of the moment: Prince William and Duchess Kate Middleton

While visiting the Northern Sound System youth centre in Adelaide, by the way, located in Elizabeth, the birthplace of Cold Chisel and The Angels, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were invited to try their hands at a little turntablism, “It’s all yours,” William told his wife, gesturing her to come forward to the decks first. She gave a respectable effort for someone we assume is a novice. “William’s got lots more experience than I have,” Middleton said before testing out the turntables.

Prince William draw equal cheers and laughs from the onlooking crowd as he showed everyone a potential royal career path that could’ve been, even when he was told by DJ Shane Peterer not to give up his day job.

Piracy_Its_A_Crime_Wide

Australia is changing…to legal downloads!

Are Australians starting to feel guilty with their addiction of illegal downloads? Quite possibly!

According to the figures recently released by the Australian Home Entertainment Distributors Association, there is a slight increase in the amount of legal downloads compared to illegal downloads, with the market for digital film and television sales increase to a notable 22.4% to $143.67 million in the last financial year.

This is good progress for Australia considering we’re in the top three in the world for having the highest illegal download rates. This change could be due to the services that paid TV subscriptions like Foxtel are offering to meet their customers’ demands. This includes ‘fast tracking’ TV episodes to viewers so that they are just as up-to-date as the viewers in the US. It also includes ‘on-demand’ services which allows viewers to watch recent movies directly on their screen through a push of a button on the remote. It’s good to see that people are actually implementing better strategies nowadays compared to the scare tactics they used in the piracy ads as seen below.

Regardless of the cause behind this newfound change, it’s safe to say Australia is taking one small step away from Piracy. Who knows, in a few years time, the piracy ship in Australia may become the next titanic.

Taylor Swift sparkles in Sydney

The 23 year old American country artist turned princess pop star kicked off her opening Australian THE RED TOUR at Allianz Stadium in Sydney on Wednesday 4 December. Taylor Swift’s musicality is undeniable as she lived up to the live vocals and entertained the 40,000 fans in attendance with a musical-like act rather than a conventional concert. Taylor was happy to sing and dance as well as talk about love, heartbreak, emotions and mean people. Although her dancing may not be the greatest, her talent and confidence dominated the stage.
