It looks like Lil’ Kim has been having a lil’ work done. As near as we can tell, she took a photo of La Toya Jackson to a plastic surgeon raising money for his mom’s heart transplant and told him what she was going for, so he’s trying his damndest to get her there.
Because, seriously, what?
Have you seen her face lately? Even calling it “her face” is inaccurate at this point — because what she has now is certainly not what she started with.
We aren’t medical experts so we can’t tell you all about the effects of plastic surgery procedures. But we are celebrity photo experts, so we can tell you all about when somebody’s mug now looks totally different than it did just a few short years ago.
And so we shall.
Let’s get in our wayback machine and travel to the year 2000. Lil’ Kim’s second album, ‘The Notorious K.I.M.,’ has gone platinum. Her wardrobe is odd, but her face looks pretty good.
In 2001, she’s featured in the crowd-pleasing remake of ‘Lady Marmalade’ with heavy hitters like Christina Aguilera and Pink. How does this affect her looks? It makes her; that lovely gal on the left young and gorgeous.
Fast forward to 2004 – wearing your standard issue wayback machine seatbelt, of course – and take a look at Lil’ Kim then. With two more platinum albums under her belt, things have gone great in her career, but terribly awry in her nose.
Here she is a lil’ further down the road in 2006. Hey, Kimmy, did your booty get bigger? A lil’ augmentation, perhaps? There aren’t any fattening snacks on those abs.
Travel with us to 2008. For those of you still taking the tour, try not to miss the larger chin and smaller nose. You’ll find them under the much lighter skin tone.
And here we are back in the good ol’ present, where we’ve gone around the bend to a place where Lil’ Kim’s face is odd and her wardrobe is normal (well, save for the top bursting with her man-made rack).
She’s looking less “young black woman” and more “Asian grandmother” these days, and while she might be upset about it, we’ll never know; it’s doubtful her face can show much emotion anymore.
