Further proof that no one — not even self-proclaimed "Pretty Girls" — is immune to the body image blues: Iggy Azalea opened up about confidence issues this morning, telling Australia’s Today Show: "Some days I just think I want to crawl in my cave and I don’t feel confident at all, and other days I feel great. I think it’s like that for all human beings, not just young women." The rapper, who's recently been under fire by the LGBTQIA community for some ill-advised tweets, emphasizes the importance of embracing insecurities, reports People. "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." Though Azalea is no stranger to the spotlight, she admits to moments of self-doubt. "I think maybe feeling confident or 100% every day is something to aspire to, but I don’t know if it’s humanly possible for anybody." Here's wishing the Aussie all the confidence in the world as she prepares to wed her new fiancée, basketball player Nick Young. We always appreciate some real body image talk.
