Bounce - Iggy Azalea (Official video)
Aaaand Iggy has descended into the lucrative world of basic bitchdom.
As much as I like to support fellow females doing big things, I can’t appreciate this for a multitude of reasons.
okay now can we all agree to pretend like she never happened? all she’s been doing since day one is appropriating an artform she knows nothing about to milk the novelty value of being a blonde white female trying on an ~exotic~ culture, I don’t know why it took this long for people to figure that out/be upset or why this is offensive but her two years of rampant vocal blackface somehow wasn’t.
people collectively heel-face turned on azealia banks quick-smart for her bullshit (and rightly so), I will never get why iggy got clemency when she was a hundred times more basic to start with.
Above all else, it is about leaving a mark that I existed: I was here. I was hungry. I was defeated. I was happy. I was sad. I was in love. I was afraid. I was hopeful. I had an idea and I had a good purpose and that’s why I made works of art.Felix Gonzalez-Torres

Wanted to get modern women artists and some WOC up in this one. If you reblog it would be cool if you kept the part in the brackets so these artists, two of whom are still working, will get credit—this conversational part below is nbd.
