Iggy Azalea, a magnet for controversy, covered Seventeen magazine’s September issue and used her platform to talk about self-love and plastic surgery.
There’s a time and a place for talking about the virtues of plastic surgery and subsequent self-acceptance, but it’s not necessarily appropriate for a targeted demographic of teenagers, as that is the main basis of Seventeen‘s readership. Either way, the future Mrs. Nick Young spoke about getting her breasts done and the reports of her nose job.
On the rumor of her nose augmentation:
“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.”
