Iggy Azalea’s Sign Language Interpreter Is Our New Hero

We have to give major props to the American Sign Language interpreter Iggy Azalea hired for her Austin City Limits gig on Saturday (October 11).

Even though the quality of this video isn’t the best, you can tell that homegirl is going H.A.M. on this vintage Iggy track from 2012, “Pu$$y.”

Azalea posted the clip on Instagram Sunday afternoon, touting it as “awesome” thanks to her ASL interpreter’s “signing with sass.”

That interpreter is Amber Galloway Gallego, and her sweet sign language skills are nothing new: She kinda sorta killed it interpreting for Kendrick Lamar at Lollapalooza 2013. Watch her own the crap out of “F–kin’ Problems.”

You can check out more of Galloway Gallego’s work on her YouTube channel, which boasts tons of videos of her interpreting a variety of songs into ASL. Be sure to check out her rendition of Eminem’s “Rap God,” particularly that notoriously impossible-to-spit third verse.

Too much exuberance for one person. Follow her on Twitter @alicialutes.
