Iggy Azalea – Fancy (Explicit) ft. Charli XCX
Amethyst Amelia Kelly (born 7 June 1990), better known by her stage name Iggy Azalea, is an Australian recording artist and model from Mullumbimby, New South Wales. She relocated to the US at the age of 16, first staying in Miami, Florida, and then other parts of the South, including Houston, Texas and Atlanta, Georgia.
On 27 September 2011, Azalea released her first full-length project, a mixtape entitled Ignorant Art, saying she made it “with the intent to make people question and redefine old ideals”. In 2012, she announced her signing to Mercury Records and the following year to Island Def Jam.

Doctors have told Michael Schumacher’s family that “only a miracle” can save the life of the seven-times world champion, according to a report.
Schumacher has been in a medically-induced coma for over two months following a skiing accident in Meribel shortly before New Year, with doctors at his hospital in Grenoble having started to awaken him in recent weeks by slowly reducing the levels of his medication.
The latest official statement from his manager, Sabine Kehm, was that, “Michael is still in a wake up phase, the situation has not altered.”
But a report in the Daily Telegraph, citing a senior German journalist who has been covering Schumacher’s accident, claims that the situation is far bleaker than doctors have reported – and that the driver’s family have been told to brace themselves for the worst.
“The family has been told that only a miracle can bring him back now,” the journalist said.
“He is in a bad way but until the family issues a formal statement, we cannot publish anything.”
A second source confirmed the story: “Doctors have given it to them straight. Miracles sometimes happen but there is little hope that he will come out of this.”
Brain injury experts have long cautioned against hoping for a recovery from the start and throughout, with many warning that the 45-year-old faces a very difficult struggle even if he does emerge from the coma.
Other experts have explained that they fear the worst due to the longevity of the coma, since patients are generally kept in artificial comas for 3 to 4 weeks. Dr Tipu Aziz of Oxford University said last week that, “The fact that he hasn’t woken up implies that the injury has been extremely severe and that a full recovery is improbable. If you don’t start getting apositive signs, that becomes very worrisome.”
Video game rental service Gamefly has launched a new movie rental business that will take on Netflix’s disc-by-mail business.
Gamefly began notifying its current customers about the service via email today, according to a post on video game fan forum NeoGAF. Currently in beta, the service will offer both DVD and Blu-ray discs to those subscribers. Like its game rentals, subscribers will be able request either one or two movies at a time and won’t need a separate account. Sounds a little old school to us.
“We’re viewing this as a test based feedback we’ve received from subscribers who asked for it,” said Gamefly CEO Dave Hodess in an interview with VentureBeat. He added that the company plans to monitor data on movie rentals and make adjustments as necessary.
From a business perspective, it makes a lot of sense that Gamefly would want to get into the movie business. Its game rental service has a similar distribution model and already has the warehouse and shipping infrastructure. Also, the major players in the rent-by-mail sector are focusing more on streaming video or are gone (think Blockbuster). For years, Netflix has predicted an end to its disc-based rental service, citing higher shipping costs, but this shouldn’t be as big an issue for Gamefly since mail rentals is still considered its core business.
What might be a bit of an issue for Gamefly is a potential backlash from game subscribers, who have often complained that Gamefly doesn’t stock enough copies of new releases of hot games or that its shipping is slow. And those subscribers might wonder why Gamefly is jumping into a new rental business without first fixing the core service.
Walt Disney Studios has launched its much-anticipated cloud-based service that lets users purchase Disney, Marvel and Pixar movies for streaming on TVs, desktops and mobile devices. The Disney Movies Anywhere service is closely integrated with Apple’s iTunes and is initially available only on iOS mobile devices. “If you’re going to do digital retailers, Apple is far and away the best one to have. [But] this is phase one and we’re going to continue to grow over time,” said Jamie Voris, chief technology officer at Disney Studios.
Once fully deployed, the free service, called Disney Movies Anywhere, will allow consumers to buy a Disney, Marvel or Pixar movie once and watch it on any web-ready TV, mobile device or computer. Users on Tuesday were immediately able to link their Apple iTunes accounts with the Disney Movies Anywhere website and app.
The arrival of Disney Movies Anywhere has been long delayed. Two years ago the company declined to participate in a digital movie storage and management system called UltraViolet, even though every other major film studio signed on. At the time, Disney was concerned that the name was confusing and worried that families — Disney’s core consumers — were not yet ready to embrace cloud storage technology. The company, always mindful of tightly controlling how its products are presented, also felt its brand was strong enough to go it alone.
Disney wanted to enter this market in lock step with Apple. UltraViolet has partnerships with major digital movie retailers like Best Buy and Walmart, but lacks a direct tie to iTunes, which controls roughly 60% of digital movie purchases.
Disney and Apple have had close ties since Robert A. Iger took over as chief executive of the entertainment conglomerate in 2005. Shortly after, Disney became the first studio to make its movies and TV shows available on iTunes. Apple’s founder, Steven P. Jobs, sold Pixar to Disney in 2006 and served on the Disney board until his death; his widow, Laurene Powell Jobs, remains Disney’s largest shareholder. Mr. Iger joined Apple’s board in 2011.
