Iggy Azalea: 'I'm not going to deny I had a nose job'

Rapper Iggy Azalea has opened up about her latest plastic surgery procedure, confirming speculation she has undergone a nose job.

The Fancy hitmaker recently confessed to undergoing a boob job in December (14) to enhance the size of her bust, and she hit headlines again in May (15) amid rumours suggesting she had had surgery on her nose, too.


Azalea, who is set to wed her sportsman fiance Nick Young next year (16), has now gone public with the news, admitting she is on an "emotional journey" as she works to accept her flaws and fix those she wants to change.


In a candid interview with Seventeen magazine, she says, "I'm not denying it. Denying it is lame. 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."


However, Azalea has urged any fans considering plastic surgery not to rush into anything, adding, "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. 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."


Azalea, 25, goes on to blame the rise in the use of social networking sites with damaging her self-confidence after briefly quitting Instagram and Twitter earlier this year (15), when she was attacked by critics for her bikini body.


She continues, "It's hard to be a woman in 2015 with social media. 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 s**t and feel OK with that."
