Lil’ Kim’s face is forever changing, so it’s no shock that she debuted a newer version of herself on Instagram this weekend.
From the crystal-blue eyes to the lighter skin and oddly shaped lips, Lil’ Kim’s face no longer looks like Kim’s face from the ’90s or even Kim’s face from last year.
Most people will just look and laugh at the way Kim has literally morphed into someone else in front of our eyes over the last decade. But when beauty is skin deep, the issues that have caused her to change are even deeper. Even with all the vulgarity in her music, which, when released back then, some people winced at, you can’t deny that Kim was beautiful.
“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,” Kim said in a 2000 interview with Newsweek.
When someone is constantly picking a person apart, it shouldn’t be shocking that a person will go to extremes to change her or his look. And nowadays, with money being king in the plastic surgery industry, I can’t imagine a doctor saying no to a patient, no matter how ridiculous the requests are.
Will Kim’s young daughter ever get to see an image of herself when she looks like her mother in the face? Probably not. But we can only hope that there’s someone out there telling her she’s beautiful no matter what.
