Nicki Minaj thinks ESPN the Magazine retouched photos to make her forehead bigger


Nicki Minaj recently did a cover shoot for ESPN the Magazine alongside Los Angeles Lakers star Kobe Bryant. She does not seem too pleased with the results.

On Thursday, Minaj posted the photo you see above on her Instagram account with a caption that read, “When retouching goes wrong.” She also posted these photos, which she claimed were not retouched to make her forehead look bigger.

“I love my personal unretouched photos where my forehead doesn’t mysteriously grow in length,” the 31-year-old wrote.

Her forehead does look a little bigger in the cover photo, but it’s also a different camera angle and a different photo altogether. If Nicki posted a version of the cover photo that was supposedly not retouched, then we could investigate this a bit further.

Kobe though? Looking great as usual.

    It’s a different angle and a lovely carefree pose probably taken while they were both unaware, not so staged and posed as the other two… probably why she’s complaining. It doesn’t show her “Too bad and pouty” look .

    He forehead does look larger than usual. A camera angle should not elongate a portion of the face exclusively and not the entire face. I am not exactly a fan of her’s, but the photo does look retouched.
