Iggy Azalea is becoming the queen of drag queen cameos.
The Aussie rapper enlisted RuPaul’s Drag Race faves Trixie Mattel and Vanessa Vanjie Mateo to sweeten “Started,” her new video about gold-digging sugar babies.

In “Started,” literally filmed inside Paris Hilton’s dog house, Azalea gets rich quick by marrying an old man for his dough. But that inheritance can’t come a second too soon, henny!
Trixie, who’s launching a makeup line in real life, shows up here in a late-night infomercial for a poison cake mix guaranteed to dispatch your sugar daddy. Just call 1-833-DADDYS-DEAD and add wine!
Miss Vanjie later shows up as an interior designer—or something?—to assess the happy widow’s new mansion. “Now help me kill mines,” she says.

Vanjie also appeared as a fierce funeral-goer in Azalea’s official “Sally Walker” music video along with Drag Race alums Mayhem Miller and Shea Couleé.
The “Fancy” singer, who has been known to stan Drag Race contestants on Twitter, previously hired Raja, AKA Sutan Amrull, as her makeup artist. She has also queened out with RuPaul.
“I have so much respect & love for drag queens,” Azalea tweeted in January. “They make me feel like such a boring bitch. The amount of sheer personality alone put into the looks & performances really is something we could all take notes on.”

“Started” is the second release from In My Defense, Azalea’s upcoming second studio album. Following Azalea’s departure from Island Records, In My Defense will be released independently this spring by her own label, Bad Dreams, in partnership with Empire Distribution.
In My Defense marks a creative comeback for the controversial performer, who famously canceled her 2015 arena tour and took a break from the murda bizness altogether after a string of feuds, a major breakup, and other drama.
Let’s get it “Started” below.
