As a collective unit, MTV Style is 100 percent under the spell of Aussie rapper Iggy Azalea. Just YouTube her videos and you’ll see what we mean. “My World” is already riotous and anthemic with a hypnotic driving beat that will have it soundtracking our weekends until she drops something else upbeat, but to SEE the girl who spits on the track is a towering flaxen-haired AMAZON traipsing around in studded leather, technicolor bodycons, and a waist-length high pony fills our little hearts with unequivocal joy. Earlier this week, she released a brand-new video for her slow jam “The Last Song,” and while ogling the louche black and white short, we caught a glimpse of some special ink on her left hand. Is that “LOVE A$AP,” we see? As in fellow new-school rapper A$AP Rocky?? HMMM… *strokes thinking whiskers* We investigated.

It didn’t take us long to unearth A$AP’s Instagram of Iggy’s hands with the title of his album LiveLoveA$AP,/em> on her left hand digits. (You can tell those are Iggy’s hands because her own forthcoming album The New Classic is on her right hand.) But that still doesn’t explain why she’d scrawl the dude’s record on her fingers PERMANENTLY. Hot on the pursuit of some confession of superfan/Stan-dom, we found that the two are actually involved romantically *cue inevitable “DUHH” head slap* Yep, in an exclusive interview with VIBE, Iggy talks about her tat, revealing that she “love[s] him and that’s all there is to it.” She also hinted that A$AP got some matching couple ink, saying to VIBE, “We have our own thing going on and I’m not the only one that [got the tattoos]. I’ll tell you that. [Laughs] I’m just the only one with it on my fingers!” To which we retort, “TWITPIC OR IT DIDN’T HAPPEN!” Hey, it worked with Azealia Banks, right?
