Iggy Azalea: I'm a bad role model

IGGY Azalea thinks she's a bad role model for children.

The 25-year-old rapper admits that although her behaviour has matured and she's become more self-aware as she has aged, the blonde beauty does not think she is someone children should look up to.

Iggy explained: "As a role model, I don't think I'm a great one.

"I consider what I do now knowing there are younger people watching me and there are things I wouldn't do on stage any more, but I don't sit in the studios wondering what somebody's mom would say about my lyrics."

The 'Fancy' hitmaker - who is engaged to Los Angeles Lakers basketball star Nick Young - said she is determined to be forthright with her opinions, revealing she dreads being considered boring.

Iggy told #Legend magazine: "I can't imagine someone talking to me and I just say, 'No comment.'

"I just think that makes for such a boring person and I'm not a boring person. I would never aspire to being a boring person or regret being a ridiculous one."

Meanwhile, Iggy recently insisted she and Nick are good as a couple, despite recent allegations he had been unfaithful.

Nick, 30, was recorded on video apparently confessing to his LA Lakers teammate D'Angelo Russell that he had cheated on Iggy.

But the Australian star is adamant there is no drama at home - only online.

She said: "There is always controversy. But we're good. There isn't (drama) at home just on the Internet. We're good."
