American rapper Nicki Minaj has publicly admitted to undergoing cosmetic surgery in response to derogatory comments made by fellow rapper Lil Wayne about her body.
During a session on the Joe Budden podcast, the 40-year-old musician candidly discussed her decision to undergo a Brazilian butt lift (BBL).
Minaj revealed that during her younger years, Lil Wayne would mock her for not having a fuller bottom like the women he typically associated with in the studio. The constant bullying took a toll on her self-esteem, leaving her feeling inadequate and contemplating surgical enhancement.
The rapper expressed regret for succumbing to external pressures and confessed to feeling out of place whenever Lil Wayne introduced women with more curvaceous figures.
The hurtful impact of Lil Wayne’s remarks was amplified by the fact that he was someone she once admired and looked up to in the music industry.

Minaj delved into the deep-rooted belief she had internalized about the expectations of the hip-hop culture, which dictated that women should possess well-endowed chests and shapely bodies.
While Lil Wayne may have intended his comments as playful banter, Minaj took them to heart, unbeknownst to him, and they played a significant role in her decision to undergo surgery.
The renowned American singer-songwriter acknowledged her journey of cosmetic enhancement, shedding light on the insecurities she faced and the societal pressures she experienced within the music industry.
Minaj’s openness about her experience serves as a reminder of the importance of body positivity and the impact that hurtful comments can have on an individual’s self-image.
