Poor Iggy Azalea…
The rapper covered the September issue of Seventeen magazine, which seems weird seeing as September is usually a “back to school” theme, and Iggy is the farthest thing from school, studiousness or what have you. She’s also not promoting anything, so her interview’s all about personal stuff…like her surgery. But you know, with a positive “loving herself on her emotional journey” message. She admits to a nose job, but no word on the obvious chin implant yet. Here’s a snippet:
On whether she’s had a nose job: “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.”
On plastic surgery: “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.”
On whether her looks are under more scrutiny now: “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 sh*t and feel okay with that.”
I feel bad for Iggy sometimes, because I think everyone beats up on her. Other times- like when she’s being a bigot, I don’t feel very badly for her at all. I don’t get it though- she must have some CRAY body dysmorphia with all the plastic surgery. I hope she’s gonna be okay.
What do you think of her comments?
