Iggy Azalea says plastic surgery is an ''emotional journey''.

The 'Fancy' hitmaker confirmed she went under the knife to have her nose changed but insists people should never be ''ashamed'' of altering their body if they wish to.

She said: ''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.

''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.''

And the 25-year-old star has admitted there are other areas of herself that she doesn't like but says she has learnt to ''accept'' those.

She told Seventeen magazine: ''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.''
