Rapper/singer/songwriter Nicki Minaj may be plastic now, but she was always cute. These are rare photos of her before the surgical enhancements. Sure, she's not the first female rapper to undergo the knife. Lil' Kim did it, the only difference is Kim got her surgery waaaaaaaaaaaay after she was already big in the game.
Nicki Minaj is known almost as much for her unique looks as she is for her unique talent. However, it looks like those looks weren't always her looks and that she had to visit some surgeons to get them. It appears pretty evident when looking at older, pre-famous photos of the Trinidadian artist that she got a nose job (rhinoplasty). Her nose used to be very wide, but cute, and now it ‘s super thin and pointy, making her look too sharp. The other debate about her looks is over whether her famous butt is real or fake. Again, with the help of older photos, it seems that she either got a butt implants, a Brazilian butt lift (where they liposuction fat from different parts of the body and deposit them in your buttocks) or the weirdest growth spurt in history. Minaj has publicly denied any rumors of plastic surgery, so we won’t know for sure why she had it and why she denies it until her VH1 special "Behind the Music" in about another 20 years.
