Nicki Minaj Puts ESPN Magazine On Blast, Claims They Retouched Her Cover Shot With Kobe Bryant

Nicki Minaj called out ESPN Magazine yesterday on her Instagram account. The 31-year-old singer posed with Kobe Bryant for ESPN magazine’s most recent Music issue.

Well, she wasn’t happy with how the completed cover photo looked. She posted a photo of the cover with a caption that read,

“When retouching goes wrong.”

So, what is she all mad about? Apparently, it has something to do with her forehead. She posted the picture you see down below just minutes later and captioned it,


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

I’ll admit, I have no idea what the f–k she is talking about. Is she claiming they made her forehead look bigger? Who even notices such a thing? She did post a few more of her original pictures.

Maybe it’s more noticeable in one of them?


Nope, that didn’t help. I am just not seeing much of a difference between these photos and the cover photo. Only a celebrity would complain about something like this.

“Oh em gee…my forehead is like two inches too big.”

Get over yourself. No one even noticed (and no one still notices) the difference between the photos. If you’re honestly tripping out because your forehead looks a little big in a photo…you need to take a step back and realize what is really important in life.

Besides, I can guarantee you no one cares about Nicki Minaj’s forehead. Not when this thing is sticking out from behind her,
