Hate her or love her, Iggy Azalea is making history this year as an emerging rapper and a force in the music industry. At last night’s American Music Awards, Iggy walked away with the “Favorite album – rap/ hip-hop” and “Favorite artist – rap/ hip-hop” awards. This was big for the Australian rapper considering she beat out hip-hop powerhouses Drake and Eminem in both categories. Following last night’s AMA’s, people are questioning Iggy’s success even more wondering if she deserves it all. Iggy Azalea has taken a lot of backlash this year from the media as well as her fellow rappers including Nicki Minaj, Snoop Dogg and more recently Eminem.

Lakers beau Nick Young or making history on the billboard charts with her longest-leading number one hit song “Fancy,” Iggy Azalea is making noise! 2014 was a big year for Iggy Azalea and we’ve compiled all of her most talked about events leading up to her big win last night at the AMA’s.
