Iggy Azalea stepped out with a new look in May, leading many to wonder if she had plastic surgery.
Now, the rapper is taking on the rumors, telling Seventeen magazine that she did have a nose job.
“I’m not denying it,” she said. “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.”
She went on to explain that plastic surgery is an “emotional journey.”

“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,” the 25-year-old said. “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 also talked about the pressure to look good. “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 okay with that.”
