In the beginning of her career, Lil ‘Kim was a hot topic due to her strong lyrics and extravagant style; today, she’s in the spotlight again due to her crazy plastic surgery endeavors. It’s speculated that’s she’s had multiple nose jobs, breast implants, face lifts, Botox injections, and facial fillers.
Lil’ Kim used to have so many gorgeous characteristics. The question is: what on earth crossed her mind when she decided to have all possible changes that cosmetic surgery could offer? I would add, moreover, that she did not rely precisely on the most skilled plastic surgeons, because the results are just drastic.
First, she whitened her skin, then bleached her hair, used blue contact lenses, underwent a very bad nose job, filled her lips with collagen, abused botox, etc.
It seems that her last unfortunate appearances in various American shows, with her new look, coupled with tacky painted eyebrows and a few extra pounds is not helping her much to Lil’ Kim regain its fame in a positive way.
In an attempt to decipher the unbelievable change in the face of the singer, I suspect she got facial injections in the cheeks and chin. Back in 2000, Lil ‘Kim broke the silence on her then latest surgeries, which included implants: “That surgery was the most pain I’ve ever been in my life,” Kim said. “But people made such a big deal about it. White women get them every day. It was to make me look the way I wanted to look. It’s my body,” she said.
In addition, she has had so many nose jobs and, by so many surgeries, that she has now affected a nerve near her mouth, which is, in turn, has affected the mobility of her lips.
One can see the great difference in these two photos. Today, the singer does not look anything like the Lil ‘Kim I remember from that time, or late 90’s. These before and after pictures show that she looks completely different from her early career years and today she’s on her 40’s!
Kimberly Jones – that’s her real name- uploaded to Instagram a collage of six photos in which her followers noticed not only surgeries and other hair color but also lighter skin. It was the latter precisely what sparked the controversy. Has Lil Kim denied her identity or should we stop judging her bleached skin? The Instagram post even reached other social media platforms.
In fact, many Twitter users said it was the society that pushed the singer to change her skin color, with a picture illustrating the striking difference:
Back in 2000 in that same interview, Kim also gave a possible reason that encouraged her to transform herself on the long run: “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.”
It is hard to believe we’re talking about the same singer who appeared in the video for “Lady Marmalade”, back in 2001, but the truth is that the blonde woman seen in the photo below is effectively Lil ‘Kim version 2016. What happened to her? While the rapper – one of the leaders in the world of rap – often changed color hair and played with wigs and different looks; this time her transformation went much further, to the point of becoming totally unrecognizable.
But this time she changed her appearance, now she has a lighter skin tone and features a much sharper face. And if that was not enough, she dyed her hair blond to give a more realistic touch to your new image. Nothing remains of his previous features, remember that Lil was a brunette. What’s the worst part of Lil Kim’s plastic surgery? Is her nose job, boob job, Botox, facelifts, skin bleaching, or something else? What do you think?
