Do you know who that is in the picture? It's not an Asian flight attendant. It's actually Lil' Kim. It's fairly obvious that she's had self-esteem issues from her debut with her ultra sexy almost prostitute like image and lyrics. I won't deny that she had some good beats, but I personally never bought into the idea that she was empowering women by flipping the game on men.
But her physical transformation speaks to deeper problems. I've heard that she had skin complexion issues when she was growing up; and the love her life Biggie ultimately selected Faith Evans as his wife, a much lighter skinned woman and had mistresses like Charlie Baltimore who Kim competed with for his affection. And I think that's why she's chosen the medical surgery, skin bleaching, MJ-esque route to modify her looks. I think it's pretty sad though. She was cute back in the day, and now she just looks like an insecure, troubled clown.
