Iggy Azalea, Tyga

Iggy Azalea is now the proud holder of a U.S. green card signifying her as a "U.S. person" in the eyes of the law. The hip-hop star was born in Sydney, Australia but moved to America when she was just 16.

Now, 11 years later, Iggy has been granted permanent residence in the United States. The only difference is she can't vote in U.S. elections.

She shared the news in an Instagram Story video, in which she is seen waving the paperwork around excitedly.

"I got accepted into America forever! I just got my stamp!" she said in the footage, which was captioned: "I got approved for a green card."

Iggy Azalea, Tyga

Iggy previously stated in a chat with Vanity Fair magazine that she decided to stay in America following a vacation in Florida.

However, during an interview for radio station Power 106 Los Angeles in 2014, Iggy detailed a different version of events - admitting she first decided to move to the U.S. after dropping out of high school.

The 27-year-old initially chose to relocate to Miami, as she wanted to attend a music engineering school there. Her friend's family also lived in the area, but the Fancy hitmaker had no option but to live in a hotel "for a month or two" when she moved to the U.S.

Iggy was spotted chatting wit American rapper Tyga backstage during the Jumanji Festival in Melbourne, Australia last week.

    Wait, if she is only just now getting her green card how was she able to be here legally 11 years? Am I missing something?

  • Soda

    She's white. No questions asked by authorities.

  • LithiumHaitianFlower

  • Dystaney Kimble

    It's people here on work visa that's no citizens ... foreign exchange students ... don't know her case but , yeah

  • klwbaby

    She probably had a student visa or temporary visa.

  • You Could Never

    She said she was an illegal immigrant and finally got a work visa but had to go back home to Aus. to renew it every 3-6 months for years. Had to do volunteer work as a condition.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Well, she spends more time here than in Australia anyway, so it makes sense. Congrats to her, I guess.

  • Marlika

    The USA really needs to tighten up on giving out green cards!??

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Work visas can get renewed over and over for many years if you show that's you're gainfully employed here.

  • KISSmyENTIREass

  • Yardgirl

    She sure did!! If everybody has the same chances I would be cool with it but with Dump at the helm, we know which way that is going to swing and most importantly who is going to benefit!!

  • HoneyyGoodMoneyy_
  • WutizstillHERE!

    Well here in the GA they have Spanish only clinics that basically charge them prenatal care on a set price and then advise them that when they give birth they will automatically qualify for Medicaid for themselves after which also qualifies them to take part in WIC and other benefits due to the birth in the US. There use to be a thing where Salvation Army and other organizations would give free toys every year and all you have to do is be on any type of assistance but they only take a certain amount of people. I took my niece every year for her kids..one year it was wrapped with just Mexican women. We left came back thinking lets go early like an hour before they open to be the first in line..wrapped with them already.. LOL

  • KISSmyENTIREass

    Actually I ate a Breakfast pastry, it was ok. I like the outside of it better not the filling that much. 3 days later I found out the filling was Vegimite. ? it was bad but not for me.
