Iggy Azalea answered via Twitter on questions that she was born as a man named Cody, in the early hours of Friday, Dec 12.

"Wait, so I'm just now reading that I was born a man and my name is Cody?" the "Beg For It" rapper wrote. "*Cackling* why Cody tho? Lol."

Last month, there were rumors that the singer was born as a boy named Cody in Australia. But the real deal is, the 24-year-old singer was born a girl named Amethyst Amelia Kelly.

It all started when Huzlers, an entertainment and satirical news website had written that the Aussie singer had confessed of her male background. MTV, on the other hand, said that:  "Huzler's source is wacky because, um, we're MTV, and Iggy never said that to us," the network wrote on Friday.

Nonetheless, Azalea, instead of being pissed off, made fun of the fictitious story. The singer even tweeted what would have been her name if she was born a boy. She then questions her validity for the Billboard's Women in Music Awards.  

"I just don't see myself as a Cody," she wrote. "I'm more of a Liam, if had a penis. Liam Azalea."

Billboard has given her the honor of Women in Music's 2014 Chart-Topper, and with this recognition, she says, "Am I still gonna get my billboard women in music award tomorrow, now that I supposedly have a penis or nah?" according to US.

The singer has been in a relationship with Los Angeles Lakers basketball player, Nick Young for over a year now. So who would better judge Azalea's sexuality than her current beau then.

Azalea will be seen in a cameo role in the upcoming Furious 7, the last installment of the Fast and Furious franchise.
