Iggy Azalea Hopes to Be "Gyrating in a Leotard at 35"

#CareerGoals, y'all.

Iggy Azalea discussed her headline-making career in the music industry with GQ magazine for their February issue, and upon dishing on her upcoming Great Escape tour and what life is like away from the spotlight and in her new home with boyfriend Nick Young, the Aussie rapper talked about the legacy she'd like to leave in this business.

And her answer might make you blush...

"You never know how long you'll be in people's good graces, especially in this business. So I hope it's long--but I could be here for three or four years and then be out, like most artists. So it depends," she began.

"I might be here for a long time. At the very worst, if I have a short-lived career, at least I could say I sparked a change--that I inspired some leniency in what people accept in hip-hop. And if I have a very long career and can be gyrating in a leotard at 35, that would be great."

Surely, Iggy fans wouldn't mind seeing her gyrating on a stage at 35.

The 24-year-old has been in the center of numerous hip-hop beef and criticism in the past year alone, so the "Fancy" rapper is no stranger to being on the receiving end of some serious haterade. But she doesn't let that get in the way of her career, and tells GQ that award shows help deal with backlash.

"Any time where people get to choose who they want to have a voice and they choose me, I just think that makes it worth it. And that gives me the patience to just bite my tongue," she explained.

"When people choose me as the person they think should be speaking for them, I think, Well, I don't really care what someone in the industry or another artist has to say about it. Your opinion is biased anyway, because you want people to listen to your voice.

"So having actual people who choose me, it makes me think, I have a place, and I don't care what other people have to say about it. I was a fan of rap music growing up, and I didn't feel like there were enough characters that represented me and my situation. So I think it's needed."
