Iggy Azalea claims a music critic asked her why she doesn't write about more Australian things such as living in the outback and riding kangaroos.
Iggy Azalea insists music critics expect her to write songs about riding kangaroos.
The 'Fancy' hitmaker - who grew up in the small town of Mullumbimby in New South Wales, Australia - claims that in order to be ''authentic'', critics of her music expect her to write about her heritage.
She said: ''We get so caught up, especially in rap, with what's authentic, and I wish people would think more about what the f**k that even means.
''One critic was like, 'Why didn't you talk more about Australian things?'
''I don't understand why I'm supposed to write a song about living in the outback and riding a kangaroo to be authentic.''
The 24-year-old star, who moved to Miami, Florida in order to pursue a career in rap music, insists she was seen as un-cool when she was a child, and it says it wasn't until she left Australia that she began to relate to other people.
She told Billboard magazine: ''I was always that kid that was f**king weird.
''When I first started rapping, I thought I'd move to the city [Sydney]. But when I got there I was like, 'These people are still not my people.
''They're still too practical for me. I need some real mental people to be around. I need a lot of bats**t-crazy people who are completely excessive and ridiculous. I need to go to America.''
