Iggy Azalea diagnosed with TMJ disorder, vows to avoid “drama”


Iggy Azalea had a monster year. Her song “Fancy” was the most streamed in 2014 but all the attention along with her social media feud with Azealia Banks, a spat with Snoop Dogg, legal drama with an ex-boyfriend, and a myriad of other run-ins has brought an unhealthy amount of drama and stress to her life.

The Australian rapper took to Twitter last night and revealed that she’s been diagnosed with temporomandibular joint dysfunction and vowed to avoid all the “drama” in 2015:

Here’s a brief definition of TMJ via Mayoclinic:

The temporomandibular (tem-puh-roe-mun-DIB-u-lur) joint (TMJ) acts like a sliding hinge, connecting your jawbone to your skull. TMJ disorders can cause pain in your jaw joint and in the muscles that control jaw movement. The exact cause of a person’s TMJ disorder is often difficult to determine. Your pain may be due to a combination of problems, such as arthritis or jaw injury. Some people who have jaw pain also tend to clench or grind their teeth, but many people habitually clench their teeth and never develop TMJ disorders. In most cases, the pain and discomfort associated with TMJ disorders can be alleviated with self-managed care or nonsurgical treatments. Severe TMJ disorders may require surgical repair.
