    Iggy Azaela is going to write a biography about her move to America to follow her dream of becoming a pop star

    The 'Fancy' rapper left her native Australia to launch her music career in the US when she was 16 and she has announced she is penning a book about the experience which will share some of her most personal moments with her fans


    Iggy is creating the tome with her friend David Ritz, who has previously written biographies on stars such as Aretha Franklin, Ray Charles and Janet Jackson.

    Sharing the news with her 7.95 million followers on Twitter, she wrote: "Me & David Ritz are writing a book about my life in Australia/moving to America as a kid etc. I’m really excited although it will take about a year to complete. I feel like I don’t speak much about that stuff in my songs and it will help my fans understand me on a deep level. (sic)"

    It seems that the pair got the idea for the book during a lunch meeting on September 28.

    Iggy tweeted on that day: "I’m going to go and have lunch with my friend David Ritz today & honestly I’m so excited; I’ve been reading his books all week - I think he’s brilliant. (sic)"

    The new project is some positive news for Iggy who had to announced at the weekend that she was having to cancel her planned North American tour due to unforeseen circumstances, leaving her legions of fans disappointed.

    Apologising for pulling the plug on her 'Bad Girls Tour', she tweeted: "Believe me - i was really excited for this tour ... and im genuinely disappointed it cant happen this year - The choice was out of my hands and not my call to make. I hope i will get to see you all in person one day. I love you. (sic)"
