Iggy Azalea: 'Britney wanted me to dance in new video'

Iggy Azalea has admitted that she didn't dance in her new video despite collaborator Britney Spears asking her to.

The pair have teamed up for the Spears single 'Pretty Girls', which is due to land on May 5.

They recently filmed its music video and Azalea told USA Today that she declined the chance to dance alongside Spears.

The rapper said: "I didn't dance! [Britney] wanted me to.

"Since I was co-directing the video, the way I explained it was, it would be kind of obnoxious for me to direct a video and give myself a dance break as well. Like, 'Here's the video! And I gave myself a dance scene!'

"I don't know if it necessarily fits my identity, but I think Britney's identity is really embedded in being a dancer, and that's something she really wanted to do as well. So there's a lot of dancing in the video, but I wouldn't say it's necessarily centred around that."

Azalea added: "What Britney made clear to me is that she really wanted to do a video where she got to dress up and play a character. That was really important to her and she liked a lot of the things I've done that were inspired by movies and stuff."
