Iggy Azalea Buckles Up for Fast & Furious 7
Just call it Fast & Fancy.
Iggy Azalea, whose double-platinum “Fancy” is an early contender for song of the summer, landed another role in front of the camera. In addition to taking up post on MTV’s House of Style, the Down Under dame will appear in Fast & Furious 7.
Vin Diesel announced the casting news Tuesday during an interview with SkyrockFM to promote his approaching blockbuster, Guardians of the Galaxy. When asked if he’d rather dance to Azalea’s “Fancy,” Ariana Grande’s “Problem,” or Jason Derulo’s “Wiggle,” (remember that “Drunk in Love” get down?), Diesel opted for the former.
“I just worked with her two weeks ago,” Diesel said. “I guess you’ll be the first person that knows this—we casted [sic] her in Fast & Furious 7. She has a cameo in Fast & Furious 7.”
Azalea will join a long line of musicians who’ve nabbed Fast & Furious roles, including Ja Rule, Shad Moss (formerly known as Bow Wow), Rita Ora, and franchise regulars Ludacris and Tyrese. And, to curb all shade, she won’t be responsible for writing her lines.
Fast & Furious 7 will arrive in theaters on August 3, 2015.
