In The 1990s, Lil’ Kim First Became Famous.
Lil’ Kim was born Kimberly Denise Jones on July 11, 1974. Her nickname comes from the fact that she is only 4 feet 11 inches tall. She grew up in Brooklyn, New York. As a teenager, she met Christopher Wallace (a.k.a. The Notorious B.I.G. ), a fellow Brooklynite who became an important part of her personal and professional life. In 2016, Kim told Entertainment Weekly, “He became my friend, my lover, my everything.” “I liked him the most.”
In 1995, Biggie asked Lil’ Kim to be the only female rapper on his Junior M.A.F.I.A. crew. This led to the start of her solo career the next year. Hard Core, her first solo album, debuted at number 11 on the Billboard 200 and was the highest-charting rap album by a woman at the time.
Lil’ Kim also became known for her risque style, like the famous purple pastie outfit she wore to the 1999 MTV Video Music Awards. It turns out that friend Missy Elliot’s joke about Lil’ Kim’s “ladies” was the inspiration for that outfit. Lil’ Kim told People earlier this year, “My nipples used to stick out so much on their own.”
“In a movie, they said something that made it seem like it was planned, but it wasn’t. The girls used to laugh at me, and Missy would say, “Girl, your nipples stick out so much.” One day, you should just go outside with one nipple out.'” That’s what Lil’ Kim decided to do!
The woman who used to be on Dancing With the Stars is also known for having an affair with Biggie Smalls for years, which led to a love triangle with his wife at the time, Faith Evans. Lil’ Kim was very upset when Biggie was killed in 1997, and it was very hard for her to move on after that.
She told Newsweek in 2000, “You’d think it would get easier over time, but it doesn’t.” “Even though I know I need to find someone else soon, I still think about him all the time and every day. I can’t be alone all the time.”
The Before And After Photos Of Lil’ Kim Are Incredibly Different
When you look at pictures of Lil’ Kim over the years, everything seems to change, from the colour of her skin to the shape of her face. The first big change seems to happen around 2003 or 2004, when her nose starts to get thinner. This fits with what the rapper said about getting a nose job to fix a broken nose caused by an abusive boyfriend.
Around 2010, her skin tone seemed to change, and it got much lighter in a way that reminded me of Michael Jackson. By 2013, it looks like her eyes and cheeks have been touched up. And by 2015, the change was clear: her skin was lighter, her cheekbones were higher, and she had a very chiselled chin.
Has Lil’ Kim Ever Had Plastic Surgery?
As was already said, Lil’ Kim told Angie Martinez on the radio in 2005 that she had a nose job. Even though many of her fans were upset when they saw the change, the “No Time” rapper said she didn’t let it bother her.
“I told you I was pretty, so it doesn’t bother me,” she said. “People think that I did it because I didn’t like myself, but that’s not true. I did it because I was too vain at the time, I think. “I’m trying to be perfect.”
But Lil’ Kim has said over and over that she hasn’t had any other work done. In 2013, there were a lot of online rumours about Lil’ Kim getting plastic surgery. She even sent a statement through her agent, C.J. Carter, saying:
“We would like to let fans, the media, and the general public know that this is just a blog site trying to get much-needed publicity. What better way to do this than to take an American music icon and make up a fake platform to disrespect and humiliate them?” Team Lil Kim is not going to take this lying down, and we are taking this very seriously.”
Even though we love and respect the Notorious K.I.M., we have to say that we don’t believe what she says she didn’t do. In addition to the photos, the rapper has said many times that she doesn’t like the way she looks. In an interview with Newsweek, she said, “All my life, men, even the ones I was dating, have told me I wasn’t pretty enough. And I would say, “Then why are you with me?” Men have always put me down, just like my dad did. Even now, when people tell me I’m cute, I don’t see it. No matter what people say, I don’t see it.”
Plastic Surgeons With A Lot Of Experience Have Their Own Thoughts On The Rumours.
We’re not the only ones who think it’s likely that Lil’ Kim has worked. Dr. Jennifer Levine, a board-certified plastic surgeon, talked about Lil’ Kim’s lighter skin in an interview with Us Weekly in 2016. She said, “It’s clear that the skin has been bleached.” “She probably put chemicals on her face that have very high amounts of acids, along with high-acid creams, to make her skin lighter.”
Levine also said that it was clear that the rapper’s eyes had been changed. “They look long and totally different,” she said. “Kim would have needed surgery to remove the fat, skin, and tissue to make her eyes look this way.”
Whether or not Lil’ Kim has had plastic surgery, it’s clear that the “Lady Marmalade” rapper loves to change her appearance. In 2000, she said, “Everything I do is about how I look.” “You might see me wearing a purple wig or a green wig one day. That’s what I do. I might look different to you because that’s what I do. You might find me with my own hair or eyes, because that’s what I do.”
“I’m a person who might sometimes get tired of how I look,” she said. “I’m happy with what God gave me, but sometimes I want to make it look better.”
