Months After Plastic Surgery, Iggy Azalea Still Struggles with Body Image

She's famous and admired. She's beautiful and young. She's got fans and money and she's planning her dream wedding. But Iggy Azalea still has days when she wants to "crawl into a cave because I don't feel confident at all." Some months ago now she had breast augmentation, and recently she appeared with her nose noticeably shaved down. But the 25-year-old Australian rapper admits she still struggles with body image issues, even though she's feeling more secure in her skin. "I think being confident 100-per cent every day is something to aspire to, but I don't think it's humanly possible for anybody."   Part of what she says triggers her issues, and what she hoped to address with breast enlargement, is a significant difference in size between her top half and lower half. She told Vogue, "I have to have everything tailored, because I have such a small waist. I’m a 2 or a 0 on the top, and a 6 on the bottom.” The recently engaged star sat down with the Australian Today Show to discuss body issues and the pressures of fame. She also talked about how she recently stripped down for a print campaign for the underwear brand Bonds. Iggy_bonds “I think it’s just having that honest moment with yourself and other people, and almost admitting and embracing that your flaws are the thing about you that you sometimes feel bad about but they can empower your own self.” Is this normal? Is there pressure to be perfectly proportioned or are we entering a new period of body diversity and acceptance? h/t: Daily Mail
