Black Widow

Iggy Azalea

The New Classic

July 8th, 2014

Iggy Azalea's gonna make you sorry you tried to break up with her. You think she's gonna just let you walk away like that? Nah. The Realest doesn't do that. The Realest is gonna love you until you hate her, until you beg her not to go, until she's the only thing on your mind no matter how much you try to forget her. By the end of it, you'll WISH she only loved you like a black widow; at least they show some mercy and just kill their mates outright.

Did you know?
