Iggy Azalea Claims She Lost 15 Pounds After Twerking for a Week

Iggy Azalea just forecasted the fitness trend of the summer.

During her recent conversation with Fitzy and Wippa, the hosts of New Zealand radio station Nova 96.9, the Australian artist claimed that she lost 15 lbs. while she filming her new music video, “Mo Bounce.”

“It’s a lot—I went on a meal plan before the video because I knew I would have to be dancing fairly skimply dressed,”  said Azalea. “I did a lot of rehearsals actually, and man I lost 15 pounds in a week dancing to that song!”

In order to perfect her twerking technique, Azalea took classes ahead of the video shoot.

“I do have someone who is very, very good at twerking, and she helped me,” she said, explaining that you need to be very flexible in order to be a pro “My teacher was like ‘I really suggest you take yoga’ and I didn’t know you had to take yoga to be a twerker but apparently you do.”

“Mo Bounce” was released in March and the music video came out a few days later. Watch it in the player below.
