Iggy Azalea: Surgery denial is lame

Iggy Azalea has revealed going under the knife for cosmetic procedures has been emotionally turbulent for her.

The 25-year-old Fancy songstress has undergone breast augmentation and she also had a nose job.

But instead of attempting to conceal her cosmetic procedures, Iggy decided it’s in everyone’s best interest to be forthright.

"I’m not denying it. Denying it is lame," she told the September 2015 issue of Seventeen magazine. "I don’t think you should be ashamed if you made a change to yourself, which is why I’ve spoken about the changes I’ve made, like with my breasts."

Iggy’s journey to transform her body via plastic surgery has not been easy in the slightest.

The Australian star has experienced a number of difficult transitions in relation to body modification.

"Your perception of yourself can change a lot over time, so I think it’s important to wait and make sure it’s the right choice. Plastic surgery is an emotional journey," she noted. "It’s no easy feat to live with your flaws and accept yourself—and it’s no easy feat to change yourself. Either way you look at it, it’s a tough journey. There are things that I didn’t like about myself that I changed through surgery. There are other things I dislike but I’ve learned to accept. It’s important to remember you can’t change everything. You can never be perfect."

Iggy feels celebrity status made a great impact on her decision to go under the knife.

Sometimes the musician would like to hide from the spotlight.

“It’s hard to be a woman in 2015 with social media," Iggy said. “There’s so much more emphasis on taking pictures of ourselves and the ‘likes’ or people commenting on them.

"There’s a lot more pressure to look beautiful. Some days I just want to look like sh*t and feel okay with that."
