IGGY Azalea has admitted that while working as a cleaner in her hometown in Australia she was forced to clean human faeces off of a client's doormat.

The 23-year-old star has confessed she was working as a maid in her hometown of Mullumbimby in New South Wales, Australia until one day, when she was forced to clean faeces off of a client's doorstep, she decided to move to Miami to pursue her dream of becoming a successful rapper.

She said: "I had already been dropped out [of school] for about a year and I was working cleaning houses full-time.

"You'd be surprised. I found a poo once on a doormat, which is not where poos belong.

"It was one of those spiky doormats that gets the dirt off the bottom of your shoes. And it was just like, definitely human."

The 'Fancy' hitmaker - who is dating Los Angeles Lakers basketball star Nick Young - admits she chose to move to Miami because she was excited about getting away from the countryside and partying in the city.

Speaking on the 'Chelsea Lately' show, she said: "I felt like Florida was for me. I had heard about the craziness and I felt like that was the state I should go to. I felt like Florida was it."

Despite dropping out of school at a young age, Iggy admits she still thinks about her education and hopes to receive an honorary degree in the future.

She said: "I could get an honorary degree too, you guys, you don't have to have any education for that either. I could still get a degree."
