Iggy Azalea's insane life

Iggy Azalea thinks people would view her as "insane" if she had a "regular" life.

The 26-year-old rapper insists being normal is quite "weird" but believes the perception of what is or isn't ordinary behaviour is influenced by the context.

She said: "It's weird to be normal now, right? There are varying degrees of normality depending on your level of insanity and environment. I'd be classified as normal for the environment I'm in but if you threw me into regular life, I may seem insane."

The 'Fancy' rapper left her native Australia to launch her music career in the US when she was 16 and she insists she doesn't miss her home country, nor does she understand why people get offended when she says that.

Speaking to Australia's GQ magazine, she said: "Of course I like Australia, but I don't know why people get so offended as it's not my home. I don't miss Australia, not because there aren't great things about it.

"Emigrating when you're a kid is a defining moment of your life, where you're about to become an adult. That shapes you, I doubt you really understand the feeling."

Iggy recently admitted she doesn't have any "home connection" to Australia any more.

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."
