Iggy Azalea has made the most of her whirlwind trip Down Under. 

The Aussie rapper, who is visiting her homeland for a two-day promo trip with her fiancé, the pro-baller Nick Young, has brushed off accusations that she’s a junkie, mocked her future husband’s basketball skills, and been confronted with a charming/horrid tribute video of “Fancy” recorded by Aussie TV personalities.

Iggy Azalea Gives New Album Update: Six Songs Completed, Single to Come in 2016

No sooner had she touched-down, and the Mullumbimby-rased artist spotted an article which suggested she had tell-tale trackmarks on her arm. Naturally, she let her fingers to the talking on Twitter.

“Just landed in australia and iam dying with laughter because nicks just showed me an article that says im a heroin addict. WHAT?! LOL,” she wrote

Turns out the suspicious marks were caused by a feline. 
Iggy is on the Aussie chat-show trail to talk up her ambassadorial association with the famous underwear brand, Bonds. Though she’s born and bred Down Under, Iggy is largely unknown to mainstream Australia. She’s doing her best to change that via a string of interviews for commercial TV.

4 Ways Iggy Azalea Can Rehab Her Career Right Now

In a chat with Hamish and Andy, she discussed her engagement with the Lakers star and managed to mock her hubby-to-be's drunken pre-proposal line of questioning. And totally shamed his skills with the ball. When co-host Hamish Blake noted, “you’re only here for two days and we found out this morning he’s off playing basketball. He’s an L.A. Laker, does he need to practice that bad.” She responded, “He does, did you see last season?” Ouch.

Iggy's diary included a stint on free-to-air Channel Nine’s Today show, where she mused about Young, the things she misses about home and shared a tale about a pair of handcuffs. But its the "welcome" video taped by the program's regulars that is making all the noise. Watch it below.

Iggy recently updated her fans with news of her next album with confirmation she’s already done recording six new songs, the first of which will drop in 2016.
