Nicki Minaj Denies Having Plastic Surgery

The rap diva says, like drag queens, she uses the magic of contour.

Published March 1, 2013

Nicki Minaj says what you see is what you get. In an interview with the entertainment show Extra, the Barbie rapper, who is currently promoting the VIVA Glam makeup line with MAC, stated emphatically she “never had surgery” on her face.

“When people see my makeup, they think all types of crazy things that I'm doing to my skin, but it's makeup,” said Minaj. “It’s the weirdest thing. They'll see contouring and think you had surgery on your nose. No. No. No. Look at RuPaul’s Drag Race and you’ll see... you can make your nose look... what ever shape you want it.”

The first lady of Young Money also admitted, during the interview, that she will be toning down her appearance in 2013. “It's a bit more grown and sexy,” she explained, “like... less is more.”

The change, if implemented, will be the opposite look from the rap diva’s loud and colorful image. All the money made from selling MAC’s VIVA Glam Lipstick will go towards helping women, men and children living with HIV/AIDS.
