Iggy Azalea: I have no connection with Australia anymore

Iggy Azalea doesn't have a "home connection" to Australia anymore.

The 'Black Widow' hitmaker - who was born in Sydney and grew up in Mullumbimby - sees America as her home now but enjoys returning to her birth country from time to time.

She said: "I mean, to be honest with you, my home is in America. I've lived there for a decade, that's where I live. It's great to come back and visit my grandparents, but there is no home connection. It would be like you going home to where you lived when you were nine, I kind of don't associate with that anymore."

And the 26-year-old singer is "proud" of the success she has achieved.

She added to Australia's Herald Sun newspaper: "To be the best, you want to compete with the best. The people I saw back then who I saw in the charts, who were at the top of our charts, were American.

"I am proud, but I think anybody would be proud of the success that I've had, whether they come from a big city or a small town. It's tough, no matter what."

Meanwhile, Iggy recently spent a month in Australia following her split from Nick Young.

She said previously: "I hope it will be a bit of a summer getaway and I can work too. It will be summer so hopefully I can get out and chill and show everybody that is coming with me the good food and the beach and play some tennis and ride horses. Spending a month in Australia is the longest I will have spent there in literally like 10 years."
