The Australian rapper and songwriter Iggy Azalea caused a commotion on Sept. 13 at Hollywood High School. Iggy Azalea is known for her top hits from her album ‘The New Classic’ such as “Fancy”, “Problem”, “Black Widow”. On Thursday, Iggy came to Hollywood High with a check of $5,000 and a few gift cards. A few days before she donated the money, Iggy tweeted, “Im visiting Hollywood high and Crenshaw high this thursday to give everyone some $$$$ to spend at fashion nova.”
According to administration Iggy Azalea was supposed to appear to give a inspirational talk. She would mention her struggles,her poor background, and how she managed to succeed those obstacles in her life.
Instead, during passing period right before 3rd, Iggy was seen walking around with a huge check and was rushed to one of the rooms. A few students got to take pictures with her before she was gone.
The $5,000 was used for attendance and according to Principal Edward Colacion, a few students with perfect attendance will be given gift cards.
Her act of kindness does not go unnoticed. A senior, Andrea Avila, said “She was generous enough to give us $5,000.”
