Iggy Azalea out diva-ed Jennifer Lopez on the ‘House of Style’ set

Iggy Azalea

MTV lost its freaking mind (again) last month and decided to resurrect House of Style. Remember that program from the 1990s? Cindy Crawford hosted masterfully (for an MTV program), and then supermodel BFFs Amber Valletta and Shalom Harlow took over the reins. The show eventually ran out of steam and hiberated in our memories along with the notion that MTV used to play music videos.

House of Style has readied itself for the reboot. Iggy Azalea has been announced as the show’s host. Really. Because she’s so fancy or something. As of now, only 8 episodes are planned. The first airing will happen during the VMAs. Iggy has been nominated for 7 awards, so it’s gonna be night of the Iggy. Rita Ora is supposed to make an appearance on an episode. Jennifer Lopez will guest as well. All of the episodes have been taped already, and now whispers of Iggy’s attitude have surfaced. The Hollywood Reporter says that JLo was completely gracious during taping. Iggy was completely rude to everyone unless the cameras were rolling. Is this surprising?

Iggy Azalea is hosting the new incarnation of MTV’s resuscitated House of Style, on which Jennifer Lopez will appear on one episode in Versace’s Beverly Hills store discussing all things fashion. But you might be surprised to learn who the bigger diva was, according to an observer who was on set on Aug. 9.

“Iggy walked in with her entourage and wouldn’t take her sunglasses off the whole time we were in the store shooting her,” a production source tells THR. “She had a complete scowl the whole time and never cracked a smile — unless the cameras were on. And the minute they stopped, it was back to scowling.”

The source adds that when the shoot moved outdoors to Via Rodeo, where fans had gathered, the Aussie rapper, 24, still wouldn’t flash any teeth.

Meanwhile, says the source, “J.Lo was all smiles, saying hello to everyone on the crew, shaking everyone’s hand and doing everything we needed her to do.”

Azalea’s rep could not be reached for comment.

Uh-oh. This isn’t good news at all and doesn’t bode well for Iggy’s future career. She may have had the hottest songs of the summer on the radio, but Iggy is still new to the biz. Whereas the usual “diva” suspect, JLo, has been around for decades and still acted nice to everyone on set. Iggy does seem full of herself in general. She’d better behave, or MTV won’t ask her to return next season. Any pop star would love to host that ill-fated show. Oh no, Miley Cyrus is going to be a future contender. Ugh.

    Those high-waisted pants are so unflattering. On every woman.

    Iggy’s ice bucket challenge was ok. JLo nominated her. I like Zoe Saldana’s the best as far as challenging celebs to donate and preggy -couple cuteness. I also liked Ben Afflec’s because you can hear his beautiful little ones giggling in the background. I rewinded my video like 3 times because I love baby laughter. Yet, Bosseni’s was the most epic if you haven’t seen it. He gets ice water poured on him from a plane while he stands in panties in some cold climate area where there is snow on the ground.

    • MrsB says:

      I loved Ben Affleck’s!! The kids laughing was the best. Britney Spears had a pretty funny one as well.

      • QQ says:

        Can I ask something about this?: Im genuinely curious, couldn’t all these folks donate? Do a telethon? What is the point of dumping ice cold water on yourself? Forwhy? Or was this an excuse for Famous people to show us their pools/friends/Abs?

      • Kori says:

        Loved Affleck’s. has anyone seen Dave Grohl’s? He does it as a scene from Carrie but with ice water rather than pig’sblood.

      • MrsB says:

        QQ I believe once you are called out, if you accept and do the IBC within 24 hrs. you are supposed to donate $10, if you don’t do it, you’re supposed to donate $100.
        I guess the point of the ice water is just to raise awareness. It is sort of fun to watch people dump ice water on themselves (for me anyway-but I’m easily amused) The ALS foundation has raised $31mil since this went viral compared to $1.9 mil last year!

      • melodycalder says:

        QQ: supposedly you accept the challenge, get wet and donate ten bucks and challenge three more or you don’t and donate 100. News is reporting 14 million raised so far which is alot but you would think it would be more with all the attention

      • QQ says:

        thanks for the info guys!

  3. Dani2 says:

    Yeah, I could see her acting like that.

    • HH says:

      TI somewhat confirmed it in a Breakfast Club interview. He said she can be moody. She’s a hustler… but she’s moody. So perhaps this was just an off day.

  4. Heather says:

    She better shape up her attitude…but baby got back!

  5. in_theory says:

    [… and hibernated in our memories along with the notion that MTV used to play music videos.]

    The good old days. I miss the MTV of the early and mid 90s.

  6. Stef Leppard says:

    When celebs have stage names I always wonder what their friends and bfs call them. Does her bf call her Iggy or Amethyst?

  7. Loopy says:

    Her own boyfriend said she is a moody cow.

  8. paola says:

    People can say whatever they want about JLo but she has been nothing but a professional since day one of her career.
    She seems to be such a hard worker, always smiling and being engaged in any project she takes part in. She knows her name is a brand and she allows many people to have a job. She seems to be very responsible and committed to her staff and fans.
    Iggy not so much. Her fame has just started and she alreayd thinks she can do what she wants even though her brand is not strong enough yet.

    • Michelle says:

      And that is why JLo has lasted so long with mediocre talent. A strong work ethic and treating people kindly will earn respect and jobs. I am disappointed Iggy acts this way. I was hoping Nicky Minaj was full of it when she talked smack about Iggy.

    • Josefa says:

      Jennifer pops up in plenty of “worst celebs to work with” lists, but I’ve always got the feeling she’s very professional and knows her craft very well. Perhaps she’s a major diva behind closed doors, but I think if she’s gotten this far in the industry, she must know how to behave in front of her clients.

  9. Mika says:

    Nothing to be surprised of.

  10. Josefa says:

    I’ll never understand why peoplr whine about MTV not playing music videos. I’d much rather watch music videos on youtube and save myself from enduring Bieber’s and Perry’s messes.

    Make Iggy go away already. She’s terrible.

    • Sooloo says:

      Haha, maybe because they’ve still got MUSIC in their name, and they do music-oriented programming (like the video music awards) despite not actually being dedicated to showing music, promoting new artists, broadcasting live performances (I think the show was called “Unplugged”), etc. My personal beef is that in addition to not really showing music anymore, what they’ve chosen to fill their schedule instead is soooooo bad. All reality shows and inane, ridiculous crap stinking up the airwaves. Just think of how many new artists/albums could have blown up from utilizing all the hours MTV has wasted instead on garbage TV.

      And yes, I agree – make Iggy go away 😉

  11. aenflex says:

    Can’t stand her, based on what little I know. New, old, doesn’t matter to me.

  12. nikzilla says:

    I met Iggy in NYC at a restaurant earlier this year. She was sooo nice and even took a photo with me. I’m not her biggest fan but I do like what she’s bringing to the table. This incident must have been spurred by something- maybe she was hungover or jetlagged. We don’t know.

  13. pretty says:

    wow, her body looks way more feminine and curvy than Kate Upton.

  14. Jenny12 says:

    JLo is 21 years older than Iggy and is smart enough to know what to do. Iggy is still on a I am the best thing ever high. And those are butt implants.

    • JenniferJustice says:

      Yes, they are. I googled images and when she was younger there was no KK butt. At least she hasn’t got giant fake boobs…yet.

  15. AlmondJoy says:

    I really like the fact that Jlo is still kind and friendly even after being in the business for so long. She’s quite successful. It’s sad that such a report is so impressive, but I rarely hear such positive news about a celeb. And i was never a Jlo fan. This makes me like her alot!

    Iggy really needs to pump her breaks and fix the attitude. I’m not surprised though, since this is right in line with other reports about her. Her twitter feed reveals her nasty attitude.

    • Danskins says:

      +1…used to dislike J. Lo but now a newfound fan! Still can’t stand Iggy/Uggy though…ugh

  16. InVain says:

    I don’t now what it is about this chic – maybe EVERYTHING? She grates on my last nerve. Yes, she does have some of the hottest music right now, (that she didn’t write herself)…but she has to earn her spot…she always comes off as so entitled. I think she’s unattractive, fake in every way (IE: HER BUTT), and if you want to be viewed as a legitimate “rapper” please don’t let Katy Perry write your songs….

  17. Bridget says:

    I can’t stand Iggy Azalea. Whenever I hear her voice I actually grit my teeth. And I obviously dont hAve a crystal ball, but I don’t think that this one is made for longevity – especially since her own music isn’t very good. There’s just this feeling of “novelty” about her, and she may rap but she primarily appeals to a pop demographic that can be hard to keep interested in the long term.

  18. Victoria1 says:

    HAHAHA I bet JLO was playing good cop bad cop, and Iggy was the bad one. So, does this mean she’ll go away soon? I can’t with this broad. Her music makes me want to go deaf and now that Katy Perry is writing for her… I can’t. There are no words!!!

  19. Pants says:

    Totally believe this. A few weeks ago she was supposed to be a guest on Z100’s morning radio show and I remember them talking about how she was late. And might not even make it before another scheduled appearance she had after because it takes her like 3 hours or some BS to get ready. Don’t know if she ever did make it, I had to get on a train to work.

  20. dragonlady sakura says:

    The female Robin Thick…don’t get to full of yourself because fans can turn on you in an instant.

  21. Dotty says:

    The only thing that I think of when I see Iggy is a Wayans brother made up for White Chicks.

  22. Blythe says:

    She was scowling and wore shades? Maybe she was just having a bad day. Maybe she had just received some bad news. Give her a break. I thought she would be shoving fans out of her way or beating up her security guard or something. Celebrities have bad days, too, and can be translated as being a bitch or a diva.

    • Sooloo says:

      True, but when it’s your *job* to be otherwise for only a few hours of the day, can she not muster up a little something more inspiring than being a total sourpuss? Even if she didn’t go the JLo route and shake everyone’s hands, at least try not to look too annoyed that she’s signed a contract and is now expected to be on her game. She’s just too new to all of this to garner such a negative reputation already, and based on her music/voice she’s going to need all the help she can get to continue building (or just not lose) any fans.

  23. jammypants says:

    Does she need to always smile though? If she was a man, would people care all that much that she didn’t smile between takes? Apparently JLo met the smiling woman standard, so no one can shade her.

    • Bridget says:

      Male or female, when you are young and start in out in the music business you absolutely DO need to have a smile on your face and be the most professional person around. There are thousands of people who would happily take your place, and if you are difficult to work with chances are very good that you can be replaced. Especially when you’re not entirely responsible for your own sound.

      • jammypants says:

        But she did smile, even if it’s just for the cameras. She’s doing her job to say the least. I think it’s too easy to gripe on every little thing about someone who’s overhyped and exposed like Azalea.

  24. serena says:

    Better for her to start acting nice or people will drop her with no problem, it’s not like she’s something so special she can’t be replaced.
