X-Factor Judge Iggy Azalea SHOCKS Everyone With Her Views

Iggy Azalea moved to the US when she was 16 to pursue her rap career, but now she has revealed that she no longer thinks of herself as an Australian.

'I mean, to be honest with you, my home is in America,' she said in an interview with  The Herald Sun.  

'It's great to come back [to Australia] and visit my grandparents, but there is no home connection.'  

After living in Florida for many years, Iggy now calls Los Angeles home.

This isn’t the first time that Iggy had spoken out against Australia, saying last year that she didn’t think there was much musical talent in Australia when she was growing up.

'To be the best, you have to compete with the best. The people I saw back then who I saw on the charts, who were at the top of our charts, were American.' 

In the past, the successful singer confessed she never really felt home in Australia, insisting her wayward ways and flamboyant style made her a clear outsider. 

Iggy is about to be launched as the newest judge on Australia’s X-Factor alongside Guy Sebastian and US singer Adam Lambert.
