Ya’ll remember Lil Kim, right? World renowned hip-hop rapstress of the 1990’s and early 2000’s? She released major hits like Crush on You and Lady Marmalade…
She wore super-revealing outfits and was quite literally the inventor of fire female rapping (take note Nicki Minaj).
Lil Kim was basically the badass of the 90s who had such a distinct image, anyone would recognize her at the drop of a hat.
Several years down the line and hundreds of plastic facial surgeries later, Lil Kim looks like a totally different person. She has transformed her image so much to the point where she’s literally unrecognizable.
This Lil Kim before and after photo could quite simply, blow your minds! She has significantly lighter skin, a thinner nose and smaller eyes.
Over the years, 41-year-old Lil Kim has undergone a drastic makeover that’s included a nose job, chin reduction, cheek implants, brow lifts, skin bleaching and a whole lot more.
The selfie collage below almost had us thinking another lady was claiming to be her.
I think we all need to bow our heads and say a prayer for Lil Kim’s old face. It’s dead and gone, folks. You’d be fooling us if you’d showed us these photos in the 90s. Back then, we’d never have believed it was Lil Kim!
After years of plastic surgery & progressive skin bleaching, it’s clear Lil Kim has been struggling to love the skin that she’s in. In a 2000 Newsweek interview, she revealed her insecurities,
“All my life men have told me I wasn’t pretty enough–even the men I was dating. And I’d be like, ‘Well, why are you with me, then?’ It’s always been men putting me down just like my dad. To this day when someone says I’m cute, I can’t see it. I don’t see it no matter what anybody says.
Guys always cheated on me with women who were European-looking. You know, the long-hair type. Really beautiful women that left me thinking, ‘How I can I compete with that?’ Being a regular black girl wasn’t good enough.”
Lil Kim’s transformation is no laughing matter, ladies and gents. It’s actually rather sad. We hope she stops undergoing such procedures and one day finds beauty in her own true self…
