Iggy Azalea on the cover of Cosmo Australia: Is this a photoshop fail?

Iggy Azalea

Iggy Azalea covers the August issue of Cosmo Australia. She’s wearing an Avon Livne cutout bodysuit. It’s so fugly, but I think that’s the point. Some outlets are making a huge deal about how Iggy looks photoshopped in the waist and hip area on this cover. Rumors persist that Iggy has a Kardashian-style “ass of lies” (credit to Kaiser), and she looks very tiny here. This cover was definitely altered in some way, but her stance could be throwing things off too. I’m including some comparison photos (below) of how Iggy usually looks onstage.

Iggy reached a milestone this week after “Fancy” topped the Billboard charts for the sixth week in a row. She’s now set the longest hot 100 reign for a female rapper. Every time I turn on the radio these days, “Fancy” is playing.

Iggy’s also the subject of an alleged girlfight with Nicki Minaj. Here’s all the backhistory of the feud. It’s a huge mess and started when Iggy (who wasn’t famous yet) tweeted about the 2010 BET Awards and accused Nicki of not singing live. There’s been tons of infighting since then, and people thought Nicki’s BET acceptance speech on Sunday threw shade at Iggy. Well … Iggy doesn’t think so. She posted a statement on Instagram about how she’s tired of the controversy: “Generally speaking I’m unbothered by anything that ‘happened’ at the BET awards and just feel worn out by everything trying to make me have wars with people all the time … just let it go.

Here are those pictures I was talking about earlier. Iggy has a habit of pushing her booty out to the side, so that could explain why she looks different on Cosmo. Buuuut yeah. They also photoshopped her too.

    oh well, looks aren’t her strongest suit either way.

  2. ray says:

    ugh i wish she would go away

  3. Kate says:

    Well it’s certainly ‘shopped (just like every single other Cosmo cover), but that stance will make a person’s hips look smaller and thighs look not necessarily smaller but more toned I guess. Before Beyonce lipo’d her thighs away she loved that pose because it made her hips look tiny and make her legs look strong and lean. When not in that pose her thighs looked much softer.

    Iggy is like Kim Kardashian. Her ass is wider than her hips. She doesn’t actually have particularly wide hips for her frame, it’s just that you can actually see the curves of her ass from the front, and viewed from the front that looks like hip curves.

    • Lex says:

      She is a regular old slim pear shape. Her thighs appear wide compared to her waist. She has way too much control over her b*tt cheeks for them to be fake. Check her video for ‘Work’ ;)

      • truthSF says:

        Her butt is fake boo boo. I know many girls with fake asses who can control their cheeks better then Iggy in that “Work” video. Believe me, she worked on controlling them cheeks. Don’t be fooled. And the ATL is the Mecca of fake booties. So if you come here, you will see it all.

      • Wren says:

        I’m shaped almost exactly like her so I’ll believe it’s real. It may not be but whatever. It’s not a super duper common shape (like, NO pants fit me!) but it’s possible.

        They totally ‘shopped the cover, but, well, duuuuuuh. They do that for everyone.

  4. Lex says:

    I love Iggy! Think she looks great – love her rapping style, her songs, her looks. Saw her live in Paris in Nov 2012 and she was brilliant!

  5. Kate2 says:

    I never heard of this chick until 2 weeks ago.

    • T.C. says:

      I’ve never heard of her until this article. So she’s a white rapper from Australia?

  6. minnieder says:

    I always thought she was just a thick girl. Isn’t she pretty young?

  7. Francis says:

    I like her. She’s smart ,,working her career, much success to her.
    Why not work it while she can.
    She looks good on the cover.

  8. jj says:

    Her arse looks fake and I don’t get the need to squat and spread your legs like this one, Nicki etc., its just trashy and you look like a ho! But maybe that’s what they’re aiming for!

  9. ds says:

    One day, when people look back to pop (I’d say culture but I can’t) will they think this was fashion? I don’t get it

  10. Adrien says:

    She looks like a Russian Mira Sorvino.

  11. Backwards says:

    I actually saw the cover at the supermarket tonight. It looks even weirder and disproportionate in real life!

  12. Ellie66 says:

    That white satin jumpsuit looks like the one in Muriel’s Wedding when the sang the ABBA song. ;)

  13. Size Does Matter says:

    I can’t explain why, and there may not be a rational explanation for it, but I kind of love her.

  14. Anon says:

    The ass is def fake. If you search for before pics you can find some of her in tight yellow pants. Her natural butt was quite flat.

  15. TheOneandOnlyOnly says:

    Oh for the days when cosmo had real supermodels on their covers; not the latest pop star de jour. If you combined this girl’s talent with Nicki Minaj’s you wouldn’t have enough talent to bend one of Aretha Franklin’s eyelashes. She’s an annoying poser.

  16. Cali2002 says:

    That cover is giving me a “White Chicks” vibe…not good

  17. Nick says:

    She’s trash. Can’t stand her.

  18. aqua says:

    When I first heard her song Fancy I though it was sung by Gwen Stefani .

    • Suzz54 says:

      Me too and Eve…I am glad I’m not alone.

    • (The original, not CDAN) Violet says:

      Me, too! I haven’t heard the rest of her album; it would be interesting if she even has her own style, or whether all her songs sound like Gwen Stefani tunes.

  19. yoyo says:

    She is the Paris Hilton of hip hop and seriously needs lessons in posing and facial expressions. WTH?! (I’m not even going to talk about her fashion sense)

  20. Jojo says:

    Time to hide the Ho-hos from this one. Maybe the Cosmo cover with inspire her. And back it up a little bit on the close-up there Scarey!

  21. brianna says:

    Love her!

  22. thebutlerdidit says:

    “Who dat, who dat???” No, for real, who the f*ck is that??? Her face and waist have been Kardashianed to Mariahthon levels. Not to mention, that rapping is atrocious.

  23. scarlett says:

    I love her. And she is gorgeous, she doesn’t need any photoshops. How and why a magazine can make someone with natural beauty look ‘not good’ is beyond me.
