Iggy Azalea, real name Amethyst Kelly, has been known for rocking long blonde hair although time to time switches it up. Her latest antics on social media involving her tresses, however, sent fans into a frenzy, wondering if it’s the “End Of An Era” and beginning of a new one for the Australian rapper.
The “Fancy” rapper celebrated the nine-year anniversary of the release of her first mixtape, “Ignorant Art”. The mixtape featured guest appearances from YG as well as Problem and was released on September 27, 2011. “Ignorant Art” is known for launching Azalea’s music career.
“9 years deep and I’m still here,” exclaimed the rapper on Twitter in celebration of the monumental release in her career. She added, “Can’t believe 9 years ago to this day I officially dropped my first project. Feels like a lifetime ago and a flash at the same time.” She concluded the tweet saying “Here’s something new in celebration to still being here!” uploading a teaser song from her upcoming third album titled “End Of An Era”.

Also new in Azalea’s life is that the rapper is a new mom. This past June, the “Sally Walker” rapper gave birth to a son with her boyfriend, rapper Playboi Carti. “I have a son,” the rapper said in her Instagram story. “I kept waiting for the right time to say something but it feels like the more time passes the more I realize that I’m always going to feel anxious to share news that giant with the world. I want to keep his life private but wanted to make it clear he is not a secret & I love him beyond words.” The couple named their baby boy Onyx Carter.
Since giving birth, Azalea has released a new single called “Dance Like Nobody’s Watching” featuring R&B singer Tinashe, which has placed in the top ten on the Rap Digital Charts on US Billboard.
It looks like the rapper is gearing up to release more content, as she took to TikTok to surprise her huge following. She stood in front of a mirror in the video clip as a voice says to her “girl don’t do it, it’s not worth it,” as she then reaches for clippers. After thinking whether or not she should utilize the clippers, the video cuts to the rapper sporting a fiery-red buzz cut as she smiles.
Fans began to wonder whether the rapper actually went through with the drastic switch-up or if she was playing a prank. In another video uploaded to Instagram, she’s sitting while someone is trimming the fire red look. “You are getting it all over the place,” can be heard in the background of the clip, while another shouts, “Iggy!”
Although quite the convincing clip, the rapper revealed eventually that it was in fact a wig, confirming the speculations of fans. “Just shaving my wig wbu?” she captioned the clip.
No release date has been given for her upcoming album at this time.
