Iggy accessorised with hoop earrings and blue high heels that matched her colourful hair extensions.

The Australian-born hip hop star also opted for a glamorous makeup palette, including a slick of nude lipstick.

It comes after Iggy was forced to defend herself after her long-awaited second album, In My Defense, attracted scathing reviews.

‘Reading the reviews from In My Defense has me so sad,’ a fan tweeted to Iggy on Friday. ‘Even the Wikipedia page now says it got bad reviews.’ 

Iggy soon responded: ‘Babe, relax. Critics have literally NEVER given any album I’ve made a good review and I’m still here!’

Several publications have savaged In My Defense, with Pitchfork scoring the LP a disappointing 3.8 out of 10.

‘The album is stacked with cartoonish approximations of what she thinks a rap song should sound like,’ wrote reviewer Dani Blum.

‘Iggy Azalea is not the only current rapper who fills songs with dreary, monotonous references to sex and money, but many find creative, amusing, and even raw ways to write and spit about both,’ they added.

‘Instead, Iggy crams her songs with one-liners that sound like branded Instagram captions.’

A critic for Clash, Nicolas Tyrell, was just as brutal, writing: ‘There’s a borrowed feel across the album as a whole. It’s almost as if the twelve-track set is delivered as a project that she thinks that we want to hear, as opposed to what is truly on her mind.

‘Similarly, [single] Sally Walker – also a part of In My Defense – arrived earlier this year as an instant parallel to Cardi B’s Money, sparking no sign of originality, particularly in the production arena.’

The New Zealand Herald also had harsh words for Iggy, with Siena Yates pointing out the ‘Southern drawl’ that the Australian star has replaced her natural accent with.

‘The controversial Aussie rapper has returned with the same faux Southern drawl and vernacular that has earned her accusations of cultural appropriation,’ they wrote in a one-star review.

‘It’s not even just about the appropriation; she also speaks about being poor while also stunting about her wealth with all the self-awareness of a teaspoon.’

They added: ‘The real kicker is that Iggy Azalea is actually a good rapper – or at least she could be if she actually had something real to say and said it in her own voice.’
