First things first…she's coming clean! Iggy Azalea has confirmed that she recently got a nose job in a new interview with Seventeen magazine. Us Weekly exclusively revealed in May that the "Fancy" rapper went under the knife.

"I’m not denying it. Denying it is lame," the star, 25, told the mag for its September 2015 issue. "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." (In April, she told Vogue about her breast augmentation.)

"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," she continued. "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."

As previously reported, Azalea got a nose job and a chin implant months after getting a boob job during the wintertime. "She wasn’t happy with her nose for a long time, so after the boobs she wanted to get that taken care of and then got the chin done at the same time," an insider told Us in May. The "Black Widow" entertainer was thrilled with the results, according to the source. She debuted her new look at the 2015 Billboard Music Awards, but never publicly explained why she decided to have work done — until now.

“It’s hard to be a woman in 2015 with social media," Azalea told Seventeen. "There’s so much more emphasis on taking pictures of ourselves and the ‘likes’ or people commenting on them."

Azalea knows this all too well. In February, she quit social media when critics made rude comments about photos of her in a bikini. "There’s a lot more pressure to look beautiful," she told Seventeen. "Some days I just want to look like s—t and feel okay with that."
