Iggy Azalea, what a trooper. The Aussie rapper dropped by our Los Angeles studio for a chit chat even though she was battling a wicked cold. (Not that you could tell in this clip — the Wilhelmina model looks as stunning as ever.) Did that stop Iggy from taking part in a round of Pop... More »
Maybe if Anna Wintour had been a punk in her time, both her and Iggy's social circles would've collided and "the godfather of punk" could have been Wintour's one-time lover.
