Iggy Azalea has accepted the ice bucket challenge after Jennifer Lopez nominated the Australian rapper along with Pitbull and Leah Remini. Iggy wasted no time in posting a video on Instagram of the singer getting doused by ice-cold water all in the name of charity.
The young blonde rapper wore a bright orange bikini that showed off her curves and guitar-shaped figure for the ice bucket challenge on Sunday. No word is out yet if Pitbull or ex-Scientology member, Leah Remini has accepted the icy cold challenge.
The challenge is to raise awareness and money for the disease amyotrophic lateral sclerosis(ASL) and the trend seems to be working. Many Celebrities have taken the challenge and then each gets to nominate who they would like to see accept it next.
Right before getting drenched with frigid waters, the 24-year-old singer nominated Rita Ora and Tip Charlie XCX to be the next to participate in the ice bucket challenge.
It seems that Jennifer Lopez and Iggy Azalea have more than just getting drenched for the ice bucket challenge in common these days. The two were filming on Aug. 9 for an episode in House of Style. The series will have the Fancy singer as the host and Lopez as one of the episodes celebrity guests where the two will talk about fashion, fashion and yes, more fashion.
Reports have it that there was one diva on the set and readers may be surprised just who that diva was. According to a source in production of the MTV show revival, Azalea refused to take her sunglasses off during filming and “scowled” the moment the cameras stopped rolling.
Lopez, on the other hand, was all smiles and more than professional on set. Lopez is said to have been shaking everyone’s hand and being polite and professional. The young host though seemed to have a diva attitude for the entire shoot.
The diva attitude Azalea apparently exuded on set of House of Style is a far cry from the girl who is presented in the video for the ice bucket challenge. On the video, the Black Widow rapper looks happy and even lets out a high-pitched scream as the icy water flowed over her bikini clad body.
Azalea has recently nominated Tip Charlie XCX from the song Fancy and Rita Ora from Azalea’s new track Black Widow to take the next ice bucket challenge just as she was nominated from Jennifer Lopez. Neither has yet to have accepted the 24-year-old’s nom.
Though the ASL ice bucket challenge seems to be gaining in momentum and not slowing down, it will be interesting to see which celebrities join in and which do not. So far the gimmick has raised $13.3 million dollars from July 29 and during the same time period the year before, the organization had raised only $1.7 million dollars. The organization had also stated that there were a total of 260,000 new donors thanks to the awareness it has been getting all over the internet.
With Iggy Azalea being the next celebrity to accept Jennifer Lopez’s ice bucket challenge, it will be interesting to see if and when Pitbull and Leah Remini join in for the fun. Fans are also wondering just what the celebrities will wear for the icy performance.
