Iggy Azalea and Nick Young are still engaged, but she’s the first to admit they have some things to figure out in the wake of his cheating scandal. Chatting with The Bert Show‘s Bert Weiss for an interview airing Wednesday, April 13, at 7 a.m., the “Fancy” rapper, 25, said she’s still processing everything that’s happened since the video of Young talking to his L.A. Lakers teammate D’Angelo Russell was first leaked last month.
“I don’t know. I’m still figuring it all out. It’s still fresh,” she told Weiss when asked if the scandal made her distrust her fiancé.
“I think last year, the year that I had, has kind of taught me maybe it’s best to just wait until it’s like a little more past tense before you kind of speak about necessarily how you feel about something,” she continued. “Because when you’re in the heat of the moment or things are still progressing or coming out, and you’re getting new information, the way you feel about things can change really quickly. It can go up and down. I’m just kind of still figuring it out.”
Pressed to predict the likelihood that they’ll stay together and get married, she replied, “I really couldn’t assign that today. I don’t know; who knows? I just have to give it some time.”
For now, Azalea is focusing on the press tour to promote her upcoming album, Digital Distortion. “It’s just something we’ll have to figure out later, when I actually come home and have time to talk about it,” she told Weiss of Young, 30. “I don’t think it’s something you can really figure out when you’re halfway across the country, just crazy busy.”
The chart-topper also spoke with Weiss about news that some of her fellow musicians, including Bruce Springsteen and Bryan Adams, have canceled concerts in states such as North Carolina and Mississippi to protest “anti-LGBT legislation.”
“I kind of stand with those guys on that as well,” she said. “I really think it’s a massive step backward and it’s really disappointing, especially with everybody kind of celebrating this equal right to marry and all these other kinds of great things last year. I think it just sort of puts a damper on that, to take this massive step backward in being progressive. And just like I wouldn’t do a show at SeaWorld, I don’t think I could [do a show in states with anti-LGBT legislation] until they change that.”
She stressed, however, that it’s a personal decision for every musician, and she doesn’t fault artists who choose to perform in such places. “I don’t know if there’s a right or a wrong way.… At the end of the day, this is also people’s income, and maybe some people don’t have the luxury to be able to not go to those places. Everybody still has to earn a living.”
She also said she feels for the fans in states such as North Carolina. “It’s unfortunate for the people that do live in those places that are in support of [LGBT rights], that they have to miss out, but something has to be done about it, and I don’t think just ignoring the problem will fix anything,” she continued. “It scares me to think that it could progress even further. And that’s just not a world I want to live in.”
