Rapper Iggy Azalea has told her twitter followers she was diagnosed with TMJ last month and has vowed to make more of an effort to take care of herself in 2015.

Iggy AzaleaIggy is hoping for a less stressful 2015

In a series of tweets Azalea told her followers, “last month I was diagnosed with TMJ which isn’t the best, I’m gonna make more of an effort to take care of myself in 2015, stay away from all the drama & hopefully not have any flair ups."

“I don’t think western medicine all the way acknowledges what a huge toll mental stress takes on our bodies. But I do believe it is a factor. Anyhow I don’t think it will prevent me from doing anything I want to but it has made me realise it’s important to look after yourself”, the rapper added.

Stress is considered to be a major contributing factor to TMJ, which affects the muscles and nerves surrounding the jaw, causing pain and even restricting movement. However Iggy looks set to move on to happier things already, also announcing that she starts work on her second album in the New Year. “Anxious to get going on it. The excited kind of anxious,” the rapper tweeted.

Most of the rappers stress appears to have come from the social media site in recent months, where the singer has found herself involved in various feuds and heated exchanges. Most recently she lashed out at rival Azealia Banks via twitter who had accused her of misappropriating black culture during an interview with Hot 97.

“Special msg for banks (sic),” wrote Azalea. “There are many black artists succeeding in all genres. The reason you haven't is because of your p**s poor attitude. Your inability to be responsible for your own mistakes, bullying others, the inability to be humble or have self control. It's YOU! you created your own unfortunate situation by being a bigot and don't have the mental capacity to realize yet. Probably never will.”

"Now! rant, Make it racial! make it political! Make it whatever but I guarantee it won't make you likable & THATS why ur crying on the radio (sic). Enjoy continuing to bang your head against that metaphoric brick wall & Savor this attention. I'm the only way you get ANY. You're poisonous and I feel genuinely sorry for you because it's obvious at this point you are a MISERABLE, angry human being. Regards!” she continued.

Iggy AzaleaIggy has had her fair share of fueds this year

Azalea’s remarks caused a twitter account belonging to someone claiming to be a part of the group Anonymous to suggest they had a sex tape featuring the rapper. The user then threatened to unveil images from the tape if Iggy did not apologise to Banks. Azalea is yet to tweet further on the matter, but we can assume her beef with Banks is far from over.
