Iggy Azalea + T.I. Poke Fun at Kiddie Pageants in ‘Murda Bizness’ Video
Iggy Azalea parodies reality pageantry show ‘Toddlers & Tiaras’ in her new video for ‘Murda Bizness.’ The Aussie rapstress plays an overzealous pageant mom who schools her daughter how on to look pretty for the judges. Fellow rapper T.I. also appears in the clip playing a doting dad whose young daughter is participating in the pageant.
In the Alex/2tone-directed clip, Iggy teaches her adorable daughter how to beat the other toddlers and even gives her Mountain Dew soda and powdered candy to help her get ready for the pageant. Iggy’s mini-me has some competition, including one girl who can spin on her head and another one who can Riverdance.
Some YouTube viewers are complaining that young kids shouldn’t be in a video for a hardcore track like ‘Murda Bizness.’ While there might be some validity to that argument, Iggy tweeted that none of the young girls heard any profanity during the video shoot. “FYI: murda bizness was filmed using the clean version and dubbed using the dirty,” she wrote. “If you look closely me and tip never cuss in the video.” We also have to say that the release of this video was ill-timed considering recent events in Aurora, Colo., but we digress.
In the end, all the young girls were crowned winners with some of them raising their “starpower” trophies in the air. Iggy Azalea is set to release her debut album ‘New Classic’ later this year.
