Iggy Azalea appears on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on April 8, 2016.

Iggy Azalea isn't stressing her (sometimes enemy) the Internet. During a pit stop to The Ellen DeGeneres Show, the Aussie rapstress opened up about the D'Angelo Russell video controversy, where her fiancee/Russell's Lakers teammate Nick Young was secretly taped and allegedly copped to cheating with another woman. 

Iggy offered from jump that she is still engaged. "I got engaged," she said, flaunting her ring. "We're good. There isn't any [controversy] at home, just on the Internet."

The discussion soon turned to her Internet haters. "I'm good now. I just think there's this really weird place on the Internet where -- we call them 'trolls' and there's just a lot of people that take great joy in saying really awful things to people," she says of her e-critics. 

When asked if it had to do with her skin color and being a white rapper, Azalea responded, "I don't think it does. I love to make music. I think people should be able to make whatever kind of music they want as long as it's entertaining and not hurting anybody and people are singing along and feeling happy about it and I don't think there's anything wrong with that."

She also discussed being happy with getting plastic surgery for her nose and breasts. "I think it's a personal choice and anybody, man or woman, should be able to make an informed decision," she offered, "and if you want to change something, that's up to you." 

The "Fancy" star is expected to release her album Digital Distortion, which carries the single "Team," later this year.
