Iggy Azalea’s letting the cat out the bag regarding a bit of body enhancement she had done in recent months. In an interview with Vogue, the Australian born rapper discusses her early attempts to break into modeling and being body-conscious. The latter led to the decision to get her breasts enlarged.
“It is slightly stunning, then, when I ask the rather routine question ‘What would you change about your body?’ and she replies, popping a French fry in her mouth and not blinking an eye, ‘I did change something: Four months ago, I got bigger boobs! I’d thought about it my entire life.’ She says she was sick of having to sew padding into her stage costumes and wanted to be able to wear lingerie without wiring. At first she resolved never to discuss this publicly; she didn’t want girls—so many of her fans are barely high school age—to feel bad about their own bodies. “But then,” she says, ‘I decided I wasn’t into secret-keeping.'”
Since she said four months, here she is at the red carpet for the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards, which took place in August 2014.
And here she is at the Grammys, which happened just weeks ago in February 2015.
Nothing major. Looks like she just gave the girls a little goosing.
When we used to do The Cooler (R.I.P.), I can tell you that it was extremely hard to find through pics of models – pros or amateurs – who didn’t appear to have work done and, with butt injections the trend, it’s often hard to tell who’s working with what the good Lord gave them versus those who got a little help from surgeons.
But, I can already hear the chorus of negative responses because it’s Iggy and the ‘net loves to bash her as well as the contingent who’ve always wondered whether she had work done on her buns. There’s also the question of “authenticity” surrounding her rap persona. You know, because rap is all about “keeping it real” and fake boobs aren’t “real.”
Whatever the case, Iggy’s decision was hers to make. I’m sure she was made aware of the positives and negatives associated with implants. To loosely quote Jay Z, she hopefully knew the price, knew the wrongs, and the rights. If she’s happy, so be it because she’s the one who has to live in her skin.
