Iggy Azalea has said that she feels no “home connection” to Australia anymore and she now considers the US home.
The “Black Widow” hitmaker was born in Sydney and says she that while still enjoys returning home to her birthplace, but she no longer considers it home.
“I mean, to be honest with you, my home is in America. I’ve lived there for a decade, that’s where I live,” she said. “It’s great to come back and visit my grandparents, but there is no home connection.”
“It would be like you going home to where you lived when you were nine, I kind of don’t associate with that anymore.”
When Australia’s Herald Sun newspaper asked her about her success, though, the singer took an outsider stance, saying: “To be the best, you want to compete with the best. The people I saw back then who I saw in the charts, who were at the top of our charts, were American.”
“I am proud, but I think anybody would be proud of the success that I’ve had, whether they come from a big city or a small town. It’s tough, no matter what.”
The 26-year-old singer also recently returned to Australia for a month following her breakup from Nick Young.
“It will be summer so hopefully I can get out and chill and show everybody that is coming with me the good food and the beach and play some tennis and ride horses,” she said then. “Spending a month in Australia is the longest I will have spent there in literally like 10 years.”
