Iggy Azalea doesn't want to break-up with her boyfriend - because it would "ruin" basketball for her.

The 23-year-old Australian singer is in a relationship with Los Angeles Lakers player Nick Young and she loves his "goofy" side.

She told the new issue of America's GQ magazine: "Nick's really goofy and funny. We don't really watch basketball in Australia. I always joke with him, 'I hope we don't break up, because you'd ruin basketball for me.' I really hope he doesn't ruin basketball for me."

Despite his own high-profile in the US, Nick, 28, admits he is usually overshadowed by his girlfriend when they go out together.

Asked who gets the most attention, he told the publication: "Iggy. Because of the way she dresses and her, uh, figure. It's hard to top that, ya know?"

Meanwhile, Iggy has unveiled the cover art for her forthcoming debut album, 'The New Classic', which will be released in April and followed shortly afterwards be a series of American gigs.

The 'Bounce' hitmaker also tweeted to advise European fans she will be "doing a lot of festivals throughout the summer".
