Iggy Azalea looks a lot like Britney Spears in old leaked music video. Who ripped off whom?

Despite being one of the few femcees out right now, Iggy Azalea has opened her own door to pop stardom with "Fancy," her song of the summer, — but it appears as if the Australian bombshell may have dabbled in the pop world long before her big break with T.I.

In a leaked music video called "Nothing Like Me," which was uploaded on Monday, Azalea attempts her very best Britney Spears impression with a crew of backup dancers, a belly midriff and a tune that sounds similar to Spears' hit "Womanizer." No word on when the rapper filmed the video, but the caption suggested the project came before Azalea signed to T.I.'s Grand Hustle in 2012. According to Billboard, the hip-hop heavyweight did have a major label deal with Interscope before joining T.I.'s roster. However, "Womanizer" was recorded and filmed back in 2009 as part of Spears' comeback campaign for her LP Circus.

Azalea's clip looks like it was filmed in a hotel bathroom and staircase with a $50 budget. Spears' "Womanizer" was directed by the one and only Joseph Kahn and rumored to cost more than $1 million. Iggy has yet to speak out on the leaked video, and it's likely that she won't. With Nicki Minaj's recent dis of Azalea at the 2014 BET Awards, some are already questioning Azalea's hip-hop authenticity.
