Iggy Azalea to Make Cameo In 'Fast & Furious 7,’ Vin Diesel Says
Vin Diesel revealed a juicy piece of information during a recent interview to promote his new Marvel film Guardians of the Galaxy: rapper Iggy Azalea will be making a cameo in the upcoming Fast & Furious 7.
The news slipped after an interviewer with France’s Skyrock FM asked Diesel which songs he’d like to dance to most between Jason Derulo’s “Wiggle,” Azalea’s “Fancy” or Ariana Grande’s “Problem.”
“Well, Iggy Azalea, I just worked with her two weeks ago,” the actor responded. “I guess you’ll be the first person that knows this — we casted her in Fast & Furious 7. She has a cameo in Fast & Furious 7.”
Azalea’s representatives had not respond to Billboard’s request for comment at press time.
Diesel, of course, plays the character of Dominic Toretto in the racing franchise. Fast & Furious 7 is currently scheduled to open on April 3, 2015. The latest installment in the series stars Diesel, the late Paul Walker and Dwayne Johnson, along with returning actors Michelle Rodriguez, Jordana Brewster, Tyrese Gibson, Chris "Ludacris" Bridges, Elsa Pataky and Lucas Black.
Azalea was recently tapped to host MTV's famous fashion series House of Style. During the show, the Australian-born rapper will take viewers through L.A.'s best vintage stores, as well as music video set visits with Rita Ora and designer Jeremy Scott. The eight-episode season launches Aug. 4 on MTV.com and across MTV's social media platforms. It will conclude at this year's MTV Video Music Awards.
