Iggy Azalea says more people should be open about plastic surgery
Iggy Azalea is one of a score of famous people who didn’t shy away from being honest when it came to the fact that she’d had plastic surgery following her breast augmentation and a nose job in 2015, and in doing so has stated that she hopes to set an example for other women.
“I think, in 2016, people should be more accepting of the fact that both famous and non-famous women are having cosmetic procedures,” she told the publication. “That’s just the reality. And I think more people need to admit that s–t so it doesn’t have to be so taboo—because we’re all doing it anyway.”
She went on to discuss the reason behind her own procedure, saying: “I wanted to change my nose because I didn’t grow up with a bump on it—that happened when I got smashed in the face with a soccer ball when I was 16,” she revealed. “Now I feel like my nose looks the way it’s supposed to look.”
Iggy also queried the clash between telling a woman to love herself and rebuking her for desiring the want to change herself in order to gain increased self-confidence.
“Everyone tells you that you should love your body the way it is,” she said. “But then it is bad to say that you want to change something about yourself not because you want to look like someone else, just because you want to? What’s wrong with that?”
She went on to say: “There’s nothing black and white about beauty or plastic surgery. There are no guarantees that it will fix how you feel about yourself. All of those women (who criticise someone for having surgery)—if they had $10 million in their account tomorrow, I’d dare them not to change one thing about themselves or at least think about it… And there’s nothing wrong with that.”
Iggy has been open in regards to her feelings and how she feels other women should feel about being confident with their choices. She simply hopes the world will stop shaming women for their decisions about their own bodies in the future, and instead applaud them for whatever makes them happy.
