Iggy Azalea: I Postponed My Wedding To Tour (AUDIO)
Iggy Azalea won’t be walking down the aisle anytime soon. The star revealed on Friday that she’s postponed her wedding to Nick Young in order to tour. Listen below.
On Friday morning, Azalea dropped her new song, “Team,” the lead single from her upcoming album, Digital Distortion. During a chat with “On Air With Ryan Seacrest,” the rapper said she wants to tour to support the album sooner than later. Consequently, she’s pushed back her nuptials.
“I’m planning my wedding, actually moved my wedding ’cause I have to tour, so my wedding plans are changing,” she said. “It was going to happen at the end of the year, but now I have to go to work, so we’ll probably have to wait until the end of the next basketball season to do that. So that kind of is a bit sucky, but it’s alright.”
Young, who is a player for the Los Angles Lakers, apparently doesn’t mind. Azalea told Secrest her fiancé is “really awesome and great and totally understanding.” In fact, she went on to say, “He’s like, ‘I can be a bachelor for longer,’ and he’s really milking it, he’s really milking the whole thing.”
As for the tour, while nothing has been officially announced yet, it’s certainly a long-time coming after Azalea canceled last year’s trek. “This wedding was ready, but I think that’s it’s, you know, my last tour I canceled, I had a lot going on,” she explained.
The Australian performer went on, “I just felt like the last time I got to a point where I was kind of burnt out on the music by the time I got around to touring, ’cause my album had been out for over a year. I don’t want to have a risk of that happening again.”
Now Azalea has her sights set on a late summer/early fall tour following her album’s June release. But despite postponing the wedding, not all the plans are changing. “Now our honeymoon’s just going to be our vacation, and then I’ll pick another honeymoon,” she said.
