Iggy Azalea has been active on OnlyFans for a little over a month, and she’s already been “making so much money that I won’t say how much it is,” she revealed in a new interview on Emily Ratajkowski’s High Low podcast.

Since joining the subscription-only platform, “I made record labels so much money off my body,” Azalea claimed, in a transcript shared by NME. “I made a lot of people so much money off my body.”

She also admitted that starting an OnlyFans account came from a place of empowerment and ownership - in music; she said that she made “the smallest cut off my own fucking body and my own work and my own ideas.” 

On OnlyFans, all the money goes straight to her, a powerful move completely owned by Azalea that she won't say how much money the decision makes. “I’m making so much money that I won’t say how much it is," she said.

“I’m going to post pictures like that anyway because I like it, and I think they’re beautiful, and I like my breasts. Fucking sorry,” the Fancy rapper continued, disregarding any criticism about her choices. 

Also in the podcast episode, she tells Ratajkowski that she isn't "ashamed" when about the public response to her OnlyFans. "I don’t think I have to say sorry...," she said.

For the $25 subscription, Azalea’s OnlyFans can accept “first-look access and exclusive content from the project” called Hotter Than Hell, a coffee-table book to be finished in December.

Azalea's independence and making money through OnlyFans follows another empowering decision she's made lately - in November, Iggy Azalea sold her master recordings and publishing catalogue to Domain Capital; a source told Billboard.

Azalea reportedly brokered an eight-figure sum deal with her manager Reece Pearson and her attorney Peter Paterno for 100% of her share of her existing discography, including the previously mentioned hit featuring Charli XCX, Black Widow featuring Rita Ora, and Problem featuring Ariana Grande. A clause in the agreement also contains "an additional trigger" for the artist to earn future revenue on the master recordings. 

Her discography includes The New Classic, Surviving The Summer (EP), In My Defense and 2021's The End Of An Era. Azalea has released music via Virgin EMI and Island Records in the past. She now wholly owns her own record label called Bad Dreams - she's looking for a new distribution deal after previously having Empire distribute her label's music.

Earlier last year, Azalea confirmed that she would return to music. "A year ago I was willing to walk away from music because I was tired of the negative energy it attracted," she said. "But what I’ve learned is that even when I’m minding my business, y’all gonna be negative AND nosey. So if I can’t have peace, neither can you. I’m coming back. Cry about it."
