Iggy Azalea speaks after her nude photos were leaked online by unknown person or persons, as she deactivates her social page accounts afterwards.
Iggy Azalea who seems to have struggled to find her way back into the music game, and someone who was once ranked as one of the to female rappers in the game, said she is disappointed at how her topless photoshoot with GQ magazine were released without her knowledge.
She states that a lot of women have done this topless shoot but it never gets released and she will keep her accounts deactivated for now. See her statement as she planned to press charges:
“Today I’m a ball of negative emotions. I feel blindsided, embarrassed, violated, angry, sad and a million other things. Not solely because I did not consent to this — but also because of the vile way people have reacted,” she began.
Iggy Azalea went on to discuss the many comments, particularly from men, who were “sharing their thoughts and fantasies in regards to my body” and how they were incredibly disturbing and made her nauseous.
“The outright wicked things people say is overwhelming & makes me feel like throwing up,” she wrote. “If you’ve ever been humiliated before in front of family & those you care about maybe you can relate to what I’m going through.”
“It’s like a nuclear bomb that explodes and not only destroys you emotionally, but leaves a path of destruction in your personal life, effecting [sic] your relationships & people who matter most too [sic].”
“Recently some outtakes from my 2016 GQ magazine cover were leaked to the public,” she explained. “A lot of high profile women have shot covers for GQ with a strategically placed hand etc covering their breasts etc. I always felt they were very beautiful covers, so I jumped at the opportunity.”
“I hadn’t seen other women’s covers leak so I felt comfortable (on a closed set) to model for such a reputable magazine knowing only the images with my hands covering would be considered for print,” she continued. “I never consented to taking topless pictures for potential release, period. It was my understanding BEFORE shooting, GQ do not print topless pictures.”
“There was no reason for anyone to have kept the outtakes from the shoot. I’m surprised and angry that they were not immediately deleted after the final images were selected,”
