Iggy Azalea Biography
Amethyst Amelia Kelly was born in 1990, on the 7th of June in Mullumbimby, Australia. Her father, Brendan Kelly, was an artist and her mother, Tanya, was a cleaning woman. The family was quite poor. They lived in a house that Amelia’s father built with his own hands.
The girl was interested in music since childhood. Her father vivid her interest to art and it was the only subject the girl liked at school. All the other sciences made her bored and miserable. When Amelia was 11, her parents took her to USA for a trip. The teenager fell in love with that country and hoped, one day she would move here.
She wanted to start a new life in USA first of all because her native town was extremely small (its population was not more than 3,000 people). The other reason was that she liked hip hop and America is its motherland. She listened to famous rappers from USA like Busta Rhymes and 2Pac and wanted to live in their country.
When she became a senior pupil, she suddenly dropped her school and started to save money for her immigration. She cleaned the houses like her mother in order to earn at least something. Amelia had no friends, because they teased the girl who had become a cleaning woman. She tried to create her own hip hop band, and invited two girls to sing together, but then she left her project because her two friends “were not serious”.
Amelia had no friends in her real life, but she had at least one pen friend. It was Derek, a boy from Miami, who liked hip hop. Amelia sent him her songs and he liked them. Later Derek invited Amelia to come to USA as his guest. The girl promised her parents to be back in 2 weeks. But the time she bought her ticket, she had already known, that she wouldn’t come back.
Amelia settled in Miami. There she passed GED and got a visa for 6 years. She earned money (mostly illegally) to record her songs. In 2011 she uploaded her video on YouTube, called Ignorant Art.
