Iggy Azalea should do the world a favour and apply to become a United Nations diplomat because she might be the one to finally unite us all.

The world has long been eroded by prejudice, toxic political windfalls and a people fragmented by lines of blue and red.

But somehow, an Australian rapper may have brought us all together with a statement that everyone, every single human in existence (including that parallel universe where time flows in reverse), could agree with.

“The world of heterosexual is a sick and boring life.”

OK, she didn’t’ exactly say it, but the “Fancy” hitmaker tweeted a meme saying that Friday (May 22), heightening the already mushrooming amount of gay energy that day following the release of Lady Gaga and Ariana Grande’s duet, “Rain On Me”.

OK, why did Iggy Azalea tweet that?

The singer shared a screenshot of cult icon Edith Massey, from John Waters’ legendary 1974 macabre comedy, Female Trouble.

She played Ida Nelson, a fishnet laced woman who uttered the now-famous line that philosophises on how stale heteronormativity is.

Facts are facts, no?

The 29-year-old was responding to an account apparently representing the “United States of Chromatica”, the fictional world imagined by Gaga for her new album Chromatica.

Gaga has described the planet “Chromatica” as a place of kaleidoscopic brilliance where inclusivity isn’t just the norm, it’s beyond our now-limited scope of human comprehension.

“It’s not just, ‘Oh, Chromatica, we’re being inclusive with all the colours, all the people,’ and when I say, ‘All the colours, all the people’ I mean way more than we could possibly fathom,” she said.

For those eager to escape our truly cursed planet called Earth, the account has been since “Rain On Me” dropped the planet’s rules and regulations.

One of which is that: “Heterosexuality is legal on Chromatica, but not ideal.”

Which, apparently, Azalea herself agrees with. Time to chart a course to Chromatica.

All of this was, of course, a lot to process for fans.
