Iggy Azalea Denounces “Blackfishing” In New Music Video

Iggy Azalea is fighting back after a slew of comments that she is “Blackfishing” in her newest music video “I Am The Strip Club.”

For those of you who are unaware, there is a phenomenon in the area of cultural appropriation called “Blackfishing,” in which the person in whatever form of media is presenting themselves or dressing/using makeup or cultural markers to look “more black.” This tends to happen the most in the music industry to drive music sales. Some of the artists accused of blackfishing include Ariana Grande, Rita Ora, Bruno Mars, Selina Gomez, and of course, influencer/celebrity Kim Kardashian-West (and their entire family, at any given time).

The newest in the case, Iggy Azalea, who has come to her own defense via Twitter, sharing that all she did was choose a different hair color, and was in a dark club for the video.

 

 

 

 

Not only did Iggy Azalea respond to the backlash, but also went as far as to share what shade of Armani foundation she uses, with a set of swatches:
