Iggy Azalea is a busy woman. When she’s not filming music videos or hitting the studio with pop legends, she’s plugging her own line of shoes through retailer Steve Madden. The Aussie rapper spoke to Footwear News about her first pair of heels (denim with an open-toe, in case you’re curious) and more interesting topics like her dream duet partner and her love/hate relationship with Twitter.

“There are so many people who would be my dream [duet partner],” the 24-year-old mused. “Missy Elliott, Outkast. I’d love to work with Nick Jonas and Sam Smith.” When pressed she singled out the “Work It” diva. “She is the most directly influential as a female rapper,” Iggy explained. “She’s tried different ideas, and she’s fashion-forward — very bold, in your face. She’s a big inspiration.”

As for her notorious Twitter game? The “Fancy” hitmaker isn’t sure how she feels about social media anymore. “I have a love-hate relationship with Twitter,” she revealed. “I like posting on Instagram. I only follow about eight people — Jennifer Lopez is the most interesting.” Iggy is nominated in four categories at Sunday night’s (February 8) Grammy Awards including Best Rap Album and Best New Artist.
