Lil Kim is looking a li'l different these days

Lil Kim then. Lil Kim now.
Lil Kim then. Lil Kim now.

There’s a sense of familiarity when it comes to Lil Kim. Her outrageously-inappropriate red carpet looks, that Cindy Crawford beauty mark right above her lip, those crazy public feuds she finds herself entangled in with other celebrities. If it’s bizarre like nobody’s business, it’s Lil Kim.

But there's something visibly different about the artist these days: It appears that the tiny, outspoken, 38-year-old rapper has undergone a drastic and potentially-botched plastic surgery job.

A pinched nose, contoured eye-lift, and cheek injections are among the adjustments made to Kimberly Denise Jones' newly-debuted face. However, the most startling change in Lil Kim's face is her noticeably lighter, fairer complexion.

What are your thoughts on her new look? Below, a progression of Lil Kim's face over the years:
