Now that Iggy Azalea has conquered the music world with her smash hit "Fancy" and is making her way over to television as the host of MTV's House of Style, the Aussie rapper is going to try her hand at acting. In a recent interview with French radio station SkyrockFM in support of his new film Guardians of the Galaxy, actor Vin Diesel revealed that he had recently worked with Azalea on the set of the upcoming Fast & Furious 7.

When asked if he'd rather dance to Jason Derulo's "Wiggle," Iggy Azalea's "Fancy," or Ariana Grande's "Problem," Diesel chose "Fancy," though for an unexpected reason. "Iggy Azalea, I just worked with her two weeks ago," Diesel reveals. "I guess you'll be the first person that knows this, we casted (sic) her in Fast & Furious 7. She has a cameo in Fast & Furious 7. So, I'm gonna be loyal to Iggy." Iggy Azalea has yet to officially confirm her role in the film.

Fast & Furious 7 is set to open on April 3, 2015. The film stars Diesel, Dwayne Johnson, Michelle Rodriguez, Jordana Brewster, Tyrese Gibson, Ludacris, Elsa Pataky, Lucas Black, and the late Paul Walker, who tragically passed away during filming back in late November.

Azalea's new gig as host of House of Style kicks off on August 4 on MTV.com. She is also up for seven awards at this year's Video Music Awards on August 24, including Video of the Year for "Fancy."
