Sex tapes can make a career. Just look at Kim Kardashian. She went from just being Paris Hilton’s hot friend,
to one of the biggest reality stars today. In fact, she made her entire family famous. While Iggy is denying rumors
that she made a sex tape, she may have Kim Kardashian syndrome. Only time will tell.
Iggy is denying that it is her in the tape with her boyfriend, Nick Young from the Lakers. However, owner of Video Entertainment, Steve Hirsch, claims he saw the tape and told TMZ that it was indeed the pop star. He also stated that if she were to sell the tape she would make three figures off the sale. Aside from the money, the press has been going crazy, giving her more notoriety than any of her songs thus far.
With all the press and talk about the sex tape, Iggy Azalea is breaking Google search results. Everyone wants to hear about it and everyone wants to get their hands on it. It is unlikely though that the tape will be sold so we may be waiting a long time to see any leaked photos from it. Speaking of leaked photos, after the hacking that took place this month, there is more at stake for selling unauthorized nude photos.
The pop star is outraged regarding the alleged tape. She took to Twitter, stating that “anyone who releases or attempts to make profit off someone else’s intimate moments against their will is a sex offender.” Everyone in her camp is denying the rumor, but we have to wonder if it was a publicity stunt. Just look at her predecessors. Besides Kim Kardashian, there’s Pamela Anderson and Paris Hilton, who all capitalized on sex tapes in a big way.
With all the attention on the sex tape, it is taking focus off pictures of Iggy in high school when she went by her
real name, Amethyst Kelly. Her yearbook photos shows a much more toned down girl, and not someone you might
expect to be ruling the stage. Other than being a blonde, it looks like Iggy has come a long way since high school.
Why do sex tapes make someone famous? Well, it’s a look into someone’s private life, but it is also raw. With
porn tapes, you know there are actors and actresses who are paid to “pretend” they are enjoying themselves.
With these “celebrity” sex tapes, it’s real deal. Real pleasure, real sounds, real skin.
Iggy may take her spot among the other celebrities with sex tapes, but she sure doesn’t want
to be known for that. While Kim Kardashian really had no talent and nothing to lose when her tape was leaked.
Iggy has a singing career to think about and wants her claim to fame to be about that, not her antics in the sack.
We’ll all see how this plays out in the weeks to come.
