I miss the Lil’ Kim of the 90s…
Last week a photo surfaced of Lil’ Kim looking like this. And she blames the media and photoshop for this
Years & years they have been photoshopping pics of me & sabotaging my image. I’m not putting up with that sh*t no more. All they have been proving is im THAT b*tch with or without an album out & they always want to attack & bring down the real ones. Today was the last straw. You saw me on TV, people were posting pics all day… None of them looked the way that fake picture looked. Here is a side by side that shows the sh*t they did & a few more raw, unedited pics. You guys f*cked it up for all the Paps. F*ck outta here. None of y’all Paps is getting a pic now.
Not one to hold her tongue, Wendy Williams addressed the photo on her talk show:
Do you want to talk about Lil’ Kim and that face of hers? *sips drink and almost spits it out laughing* Okay. Lil’ Kim has been making headlines because of her dramatic new look. It’s not necessarily a new look, it’s been over a course of maybe the last decade. She’s just been getting stuff it looks like done, done, filled, filled — it’s pulled so tight now Kim it looks like a pin would just pop ya. Kim is claiming that the blogs have been altering her pictures and have been sabotaging her image for years. Let me just say I agree with Kim on this particular one and then I will dial it back and tell you what I really think.
Kim, in my mind I knew your goal was to always look like LaToya Jackson. You’ve out-LaToyaed LaToya in your new look. Don’t blame photoshopping, blame your plastic surgeon girl.
The picture may be photoshopped (click HERE to see a picture of her earlier that day in the same outfit) or it could be a bad angle. But at the end of the day, regardless if the picture was photoshopped or not, her plastic surgery is horrible! As I searched for photos to include in this post, all I could say was “DAMN” when looking at the images on Google. It was like looking at the evolution of her face. The drastic change in her appearance is quite sad. Where were her friends to tell her no more?!?!

No amount of photoshop can turn the “Crush on You” Lil’ Kim to a Lil’ Kim that looks like LaToya Jackson’s cousin. To proclaim that the media has photoshopped her pictures for years really speaks volumes to her denial on how she really looks. My guess is she used plastic surgery to hide some serious insecurities. There are some deep issues that triggered her to get surgery after surgery when she should’ve stopped a long time ago. Unfortunately over the years, plastic surgery has taken focus away from who she is as a person and her music (rumor has it she’s supposed to be releasing new music this year). When I look at Lil’ Kim, I don’t think of “one of the biggest female rappers of the 1990s.” All I think is “why did she do that to herself?”
Ladies, let this be a lesson to embrace your natural beauty. If you feel you absolutely have to have plastic surgery, please see a therapist before doing so to determine the REAL reason you choose to alter your appearance. I’d hate for a nose job to turn into 10+ years of surgery where you become unrecognizable.
I want the old Lil’ Kim back….
