Vin Diesel Says Iggy Azalea Is in ‘Fast & Furious 7′
Could this spawn a 'Fancy & Furious' spin-off franchise for the Aussie MC?
“Well,” begins Vin Diesel, raising his eyebrows and pulling a face. “Iggy Azalea, I just woke with her two weeks ago. I guess you’ll be the first person that knows this — we cast her in Fast & Furious 7.” And then he repeats it for emphasis: “She has a cameo in Fast & Furious 7.”
That’s the Saving Private Ryan star talking to French radio station Skyrock FM (via MTV) about whether he’d rather dance to “Wiggle” by Jason Derulo, Ariana Grande’s new single “Problem,” or Iggy’s chart-topping hit “Fancy.” In the process, he revealed that the Australian rapper has a bit part in the upcoming Fast & Furious film, which could kickstart an already promising acting career — maybe now she’ll get that lead role in the Clueless musical.
Unsurprisingly, Diesel choses to “be loyal to Iggy” perhaps in the interest of being polite (we’d like to imagine him in the middle of that ridiculous “Wiggle” video), but Azalea’s got allies all over the place. Questlove, for one, doesn’t see any problem in the star’s quick rise.
