Back when Iggy Azalea and A$AP Rocky first came on the scene, Iggy tattooed the words “Live Love A$AP” on her fingers as an ode to her man (since it was the title of his mixtape.) When things didn’t work out, however, she crossed out the “A$AP”. She need up spazzing out on the media for focusing their attention on it. It was the talk on blog posts everywhere.
Clearly she didn’t enjoy the subject being a topic of conversation, and I’m willing to bet it’s because she was probably still a little salty over it. She eventually opened up about the situation with Complex Magazine, discussing the tattoo, whether she regrets the relationship and just how serious they were.
Iggy Stated… “I’d date somebody in the industry again, but the number one thing I regret saying publicly is that I fucking loved Rakim,” Iggy said of the relationship. She elaborated:
These are the things that happen when you say you love somebody in the media: Every person that person’s ever had sex with, who would still like to have sex with them, will say what a lame bitch you are. Every person who’s ever had sex with me, who wants to have sex with me still, will say how wack the guy is. Then, everybody who has an ulterior motive business-wise is gonna come at us and tell us every reason why we shouldn’t fuck with each other. Little seeds get planted. “Does she really love you? Did she say that because she’s using you for attention? You should be dating a black girl.” Blogs do voting polls: “Do you think they’re a good couple or not?” I fucking hated that. It’s not a song. It’s a relationship, and you’re not in it, by the way. It’s so sick to me. Also, you can never go out because people will take pictures of you or talk about what you’re doing, or if you’re having a fight. You’ll never be able to enjoy yourself in the capacity of a normal fucking human being ever again.
That’s kind of a lie, seeing how very public she is with Nick Young these days, but we get what she meant.
Did she regret the tat, though? Iggy Continued…
I’ve never regretted it. I fucking loved him. I know he loved me, too. I felt like he was somebody I could count on who loved me for being me, and I don’t want to forget that. I would sacrifice a quarter of a pinky for those memories. That’s why I didn’t cross it out all the way, because if I’d covered it up all the way, that says I’m embarrassed. You shouldn’t be ashamed of the trials of becoming an adult. I wanted people to know I’m free for more possible love interests, but also not ashamed.
Welp, looks like that was a bit inaccurate too, as it appears she’s had it lasered off, judging by these paparazzi photos taken outside of a doctor’s office yesterday. Hey, things change when you fall in love, right?
