The rapper is known for her provocative costumes and rap lyrics and says that her racy image has led people to wrongly think that she’s ‘slutty.’

She revealed in a radio interview: ‘On my tour I’m only doing like 2,000 seaters but I still have to have barriers even if it’s like 200 people because people try to finger me.’

‘They think I’m real slutty… like ‘she’s got a song called “Pussy” I know what she wants.’ Why would I want a stranger to finger me? Like, I don’t want that.’

‘Buying my album for $12 doesn’t mean you get to finger me when I come to your city,’ the feisty musician added.

The incidents have led to Australia born Iggy Azalea taking precautions through her costumes.

‘I now wear two pairs of underpants, and then a pair of skin-coloured tights, and then my pants as like a protection barrier… There’s no way I’m going to be intruded. It’s not happening.’

The star- who has worked with musicians such as Rita Ora and is reportedly collaborating with Rihanna- revealed that more women than men are touching her inappropriately.

‘They think it’s cool, like ‘What we both have vaginas! It’s fine!’ – that doesn’t make it OK.’
