If you’re a fan of rap and hip-hop music, you’ve probably heard of Nicki Minaj. Her lyrical skills and crossover appeal have earned her fame as one of the world’s best female rappers.
But before she became a celebrity, the Chung-Li rapper was not exactly an ideal figure. She’s open about her past cosmetic enhancements and admits she once had injections to make her bottom look bigger.
1. Her face looks natural
Despite being one of the most successful female rappers in history, Nicki Minaj has always remained true to her natural beauty. She’s a firm believer in cleansing and maintaining a well-toned face through her skincare products.
She also emphasises on a proper diet and regular workout, as she believes that they will help you look your best overall.
Her latest Instagram post shows how she looks before and after plastic surgery – it’s pretty amazing!
Before surgery, she had a long, rectangular face with high cheekbones and long, structured lips. Her makeup artist accentuated her features, adding a pop of color with bold eyeliner.
During the same interview on Extra, she also denied reports that she has had her nose reworked. She credited her makeup artist for making her face shape appear “contoured,” a reference to the popular television show RuPaul’s Drag Race.
2. Her neck looks natural
Nicki Minaj was in her element when she showed up to the 2014 MTV Movie Awards in a minimal black Alexander McQueen dress and a simple beauty look. It was a show-stopping moment that completely redefined her style and career.
She also went all out to celebrate her birthday in a bold Pamella Roland gown. No other look quite exemplifies Minaj’s fearless approach to fashion.
If you’re a fan of the rapper, you know her natural beauty speaks for itself. Despite being one of the world’s most famous celebrities, she often shows off her natural beauty through a series of pictures without makeup.
The rapper recently sparked controversy by dating Kenneth Perry, who is a notoriously troubled man with a history of violence and sex offenses. Aside from posting a photo of the new couple on Instagram, she also took to social media to reveal a large neck tattoo of her birth name, Onika.
While this is a pretty good look for a woman like Nicki, it can be quite a difficult thing for some to accept. Fortunately, there are some photos that can truly show her real beauty and make people realize that she is one of the most gorgeous women out there.
3. Her tummy looks natural
The Trinidadian-born rap queen Nicki Minaj isn’t afraid to take risks with her outfits. She’s a fan of wearing bright colours and colourful wigs.
She’s also a savvy businesswoman, managing her image and making sure everything looks perfect before she takes it public. The ‘Super Bass’ singer has also set up a fund to help her fans pay off their student loans, and she makes it a point to connect with her barbz (her fans) on a personal level.
Before surgery, the rapper’s tummy looked naturally curvaceous. A side-by-side comparison from Instagram account Problematic Fame has stirred up a few eyebrows, with some fans pointing out that a slimming filter may have been used.
But there’s no denying that the ‘Queen of Rap’ has taken things to a whole new level with her music career and lifestyle. She’s conquered all of her goals and dreams, and she continues to prove that her body doesn’t have to be sacrificed in order to succeed.
4. Her buttocks look natural
Nicki Minaj is known for her huge booty, but her butt didn’t always look this big. In a new interview with Joe Budden, she revealed that she got “ass shots” early in her career.
According to the rapper, she decided to get her butt enlarged because of a joke made by Lil Wayne. She also admitted that she had “friends” who would make fun of her and tell her that her butt was small.
The rapper wore a corseted Burberry dress to this year’s Met Gala, which featured her large butt, bust and hips. She added crotch-high leather boots and a multitiered train to complete her look.
The singer is currently married to rap artist Kenneth “Zoo” Petty, who she met when they were teenagers. The pair recently welcomed a son together. While their relationship is private, they remain close and share updates on social media. Despite their sexy escapades, their romance has not been without its share of drama.
