Iggy Azalea is all about setting boundaries.
On Tuesday, Nov. 17, the “Kream” rapper, whose birth name is Amethyst Amelia Kelly, took to Twitter to explain why she only allows a “select group” of people to use her real name.
“Did you ever think of naming one of your albums/projects ‘Amethyst’ as in one of your personalities or identities?” asked the loyal Azalean. “It could be a dope title tho.”
The 30-year-old artist replied, “No because I feel names are very personal and I never wanted strangers to be able to use mine when talking shit and putting weirdo negative energy on it. Gotta protect your vibe.”
The new mom also pointed out that a very small group gets that privilege. “Only a VERY select group of people in my life are allowed to call me Amethyst,” she tweeted to fans. “If I let you call me that you are elite.”
