Iggy Azalea: 'Not every artist is a role model'

Singer Iggy Azalea has revealed that just because someone is famous it doesn't mean they should automatically be looked at as a role model. 

Speaking to The Huffington Post about being looked up to, the 'Bounce' star explained that artists who enjoy success don't necessarily live righteous lives or with any better moral code than others so shouldn't be put on a pedestal:

"Not every artist is a role model. I'm not f***ing driving around giving inspirational speeches about why you shouldn't smoke cigarettes - that's not what I wanted to do with my life."

"There are people who's job and life mission is to do that. But mine is to be a great entertainer, and to do that you have to be entertaining."

She also recently told Company magazine that when she finally has some downtime, she likes to just be quiet and chill out because her career is very loud and constant: “When I'm relaxing, I cherish silence because I'm a performer and have music blasted in my face 80 per cent of the day.”
