Iggy Azalea Reveals She Is Postponing Her Wedding To Go On Tour In 2016
Despite already having her wedding dress all set for the big day, Iggy Azalea wont be marrying her fiance, basketball player Nick Young, this year as planned. But don’t worry—there’s no trouble in paradise, it’s just that the Aussie rapper has other priorities: namely, her music.
The “Team” singer spoke with Ryan Seacrest during an interview on the host’s KISS-FM On Air With Ryan Seacrest show on March 18, telling him that though her wedding was planned for this year, she’s pushing it back in order to focus on touring.
“I’m planning a wedding,” she shared with the host, explaining, “Actually, I moved my wedding ’cause I have to tour, so my wedding plans are changing. It was going to happen at the end of the year, but now I have to go to work, so yeah. 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 all right.”
Azalea further explained to Seacrest that it’s important for her to be able to tour while her new music is still “fresh.”
She shared, “This wedding was ready but I think—my last tour got cancelled; I had a lot going on and I really felt like last time I got to a point where I was 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. So I think given that my album’s gonna come out in June it would be really nice to tour August, September, October, and have that music be fresh and have me still be in love with it and performing it and everybody having a good time.”
Of course, the wedding isn’t the only thing that’s been put on the back-burner in order to make room for a tour. The rapper revealed that in addition to pushing back the wedding, the couple will also need to reschedule their honeymoon, something that she surprisingly views as an opportunity: “We had already booked our honeymoon and everything so it was kinda good, ’cause at least now that we just moved our honeymoon up… I get a free vacation kind of thing, so I feel good about that. Now our honeymoon is just gonna be our vacation and I’ll pick another honeymoon!”
