Even though Lil Kim’s face has been transforming for almost a decade, her fans are still in disbelief every time she debuts a new look. Her newest face that she showed off on Sunday once again shocked many and became a trending topic.

In the collage of pictures she posted to her social media pages, she is seen with blonde hair, light skin, anime-like eyes, a narrow nose, and a tight-looking face. Her appearance was a stark contrast to the brown-skinned, dark-haired bombshell she once was at the start of her career.

Lil Kim’s fans were outraged, with many questioning if it was really her in the picture and several others asking “wtf?”

“Rock your own [complexion], it’s beautiful … what happened in your life to make you want white skin … Time for self evaluation my Diva your beautiful embrace your beauty….” one fan wrote on Instagram.

“this is sad,” wrote another commenter.

Those trying to make sense of her morphing looks posted old quotes from the rapper that may explain why she has gotten so much work done to her appearance.

All my life, men have told me I wasn’t pretty enough — even the men I was dating. And I’d be like, “Why are you with me then?” 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.

Another quote of Lil Kim’s that has been posted all over Facebook is one where she admitted to having low self-esteem and explained why she began to aspire to look more White.

I have low self-esteem and I always have. Guys always cheated on me with women who were European-looking. You know, the long-hair type. Really beautiful women that left me thinking, “How can I compete with that?” Being a regular Black girl wasn’t good enough.

At this point, Lil Kim will likely need a mental health professional to help her through her self-esteem issues, but it wouldn’t hurt if we gave her some advice too. To Kim and anyone else dealing with not feeling pretty enough, understand that you will never be able to compete with something that you’re not. But if you work on embracing your natural beauty and being proud of how the creator made you, your beauty will radiate from the inside out, and no one will be able to compete with you at being yourself. You are good enough.

    A lot of people have been rejected because they look a certain way and develop self esteem issues but Kim’s problems run a lot deeper than that. She needs to invest in some mental therapy.

    She was gorgeous back in the day with her wide nose and chocolate skin. So sad she thinks she has to look white & plastic to be pretty…I mostly blame Hollywood (the land of phonies) for this screwed up pov. Hope she stops now that she looks like Latoya Jackson.
