Iggy Azalea loves her new boobs – and she isn’t afraid to say it.

The Australian rapper, 24, opened up about why she decided to speak publicly about her breast enhancement surgery and admitted she loves her new look.

“I just love them so much I had to talk about them,” she told reporters Sunday at the iHeartRadio Music Awards, where she performed her hit “Trouble” with Jennifer Hudson.

Friends of the star originally advised her to let the boob job speak for itself after the operation four months ago. Instead, the Aussie star decided to take the honest approach and spill the beans.

“Everybody did say, ‘I don’t think you need to say it because nobody will ever know because they’re so small!’ ” she joked on the red carpet, where she donned a sexy sheer black top that showed off her new assets.

“I said, ‘I know, but I’m just gonna say it because I have a blabber mouth,’ ” she continued.

The “Black Widow” artist also took pride in beating the tabloids to the punch.

“I’d feel better not to have some secret,” she said. “I just feel it’s much freer to just say it, and then you don’t have to worry about if anyone is gonna dig up things.”

Azalea first opened up about the cosmetic change in the April Shape issue of Vogue, telling the fashion magazine that she “thought about it my entire life.”

She also explained in the interview that she wanted to balance out her torso and bottom half: “It’s about proportion. 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,” she said.
