Plastic surgery is pretty common among aging adults, especially in Hollywood. While some are not shy to admit they went under the knife, others like Heidi Klum deny having any work done.

Rapper Lil’ Kim, for example, has never admitted to cosmetic surgery. In April 2016, she made quite a stir when she posted a collage of selfies on Instagram, showing her drastic transformation.

The former “Dancing With the Stars” was totally unrecognizable with a whiter complexion and blonde hair. According to CNN, she was criticized for looking too white.

In 2013, Lil’ Kim attacked Wendy Williams over the talk show host’s claims that the rapper has had botched plastic surgery.

Three years earlier, in a 2000 interview with Newsweek, she opened up about her self-esteem issues.

“All my life men have told me I wasn’t pretty enough—even the men I was dating… 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.”

In July 2016, the then 41-year-old rapper flaunted her new look at the VH1 Hip-Hop Honors: All Hail the Queens in New York City. She appeared strikingly different compared to how she looked at the same event 10 years ago.

Aside from her lighter skin and bleached blonde locks, it appears that her facial structure also changed. Her nose became thinner, her eyes wider and her lips fuller.

Lil’ Kim showed off her assets in a revealing LBD as she cradled her two-year-old daughter Royal Reign. She wore a long-sleeved black velvet mini dress, which had a cleavage-baring plunging neckline and a thigh-skimming hemline.

The “No Time” hitmaker went a bit overboard in the accessories department. She styled the look with a multi-strand, oversized pearl necklace and matching earrings.

Listed on VH1’s 100 Greatest Women In Music list at number 45 in 2012, Kimberly Denise Jones amped up the sultriness of the look with a pair of racy thigh-high boots.

Her heavy makeup and long, wavy blonde tresses rounded out her look.
