Max Abadian/SeventeenIggy Azalea wasn’t shy about admitting she got breast implants, and now she’s confirming to Seventeen magazine that she got a nose job, as well.
“I’m not denying it. Denying it is lame,” she tells the mag in a September cover story.
Most people noticed the Aussie rapper’s face looked a bit different at the Billboard Music Awards in May, but she hasn’t spoken publicly about the change until now. She doesn’t think there’s any reason to hide it, though.
“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,” she says.
But she’s not encouraging fans to rush into any kind of plastic surgery, either. “Your perception of yourself can change a lot over time,” she says, “so I think it’s important to wait and make sure it’s the right choice.”
Iggy says she did a lot of online research before decided to get a nose job, and she admits it wasn’t an easy process.
“Plastic surgery is an emotional journey,” she explains. “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.”
She adds, “It’s important to remember you can’t change everything. You can never be perfect.”
