PHOTOS: Social Media criticizes Rapper ‘Lil Kim’ for looking ‘White’



Fans took to social media to express their shock over the rapper’s dramatically changed look, sparking debate over issues such as self-esteem and black pride. “This is so sad. The damage appears to be all done now. I guess she will start checking the Caucasian box from now on,” wrote one Instagram user.

It also reignited conversation about her former relationship with the late rapper the Notorious B.I.G., aka Biggie Smalls, who was gunned down in 1997. The pair had a tumultuous love affair, which some blamed for possibly causing Lil’ Kim to have low self-esteem. The female rapper has long been the subject of speculation that she has undergone plastic surgeries. In 2005, she told radio personality Angie Martinez that she got her nose fixed. “It don’t bother me because I told you, I’m beautiful,” Lil Kim said. “I love myself. … People think I did it because I had low self-esteem, but that wasn’t the case. I think I did it because I was a little too vain. But the conversation now has heightened into chatter about whether her new look is the result of surgery, skin bleaching, makeup, Photoshop or a combination of any or all. Some observers have worried that Lil’ Kim is setting a bad example for young women of color.

  Kim has sparked a roaring wildfire ablaze social media due to her newly publicized look. Ms. Jones appears “European” in nationality. And, the men in her life might be the influence. As you’ve probably noticed, Lil Kim doesn’t quite look like herself — or at least the musical persona everyone’s come to know. However, this transition possibly doesn’t have much to do with Kim as an artist. It seems to be more personal. According to Toronto Sun, Kimberly Jones is 41 years of age. That’s a long time to struggle with self-image, right? However, you can bet she’s not the only female (or male) her age with similar complexes.
