‘When Retouching Goes Wrong’: Nicki Minaj Critiques Her ESPN Magazine Cover


If there’s one thing we love about Nicki Minaj, it’s her outspoken nature. This week, the multiplatinum rapper and Kobe Bryant were unveiled as one of three joint covers for ESPN Magazine’s annual “Music Issue.” While many (including us) think the YMCMB signee looks pretty good, Nicki herself feels differently.

Earlier today (Jan. 23), her Minajesty posted the cover (above) to her Instagram with the caption, “When retouching goes wrong!,” before adding that it she was “so honored” to work with Bryant. Soon after, fans were treated to a bevy of BTS photos that show Minaj pre-airbrush.

“I love my personal unretouched photos where my forehead doesn’t mysteriously grow in length.”
