Nicki Minaj Calls Out ESPN Magazine For Retouching FAIL

We've seen more than our fair share of airbrushing blunders, but it's nice for once to report on one in which a fashion magazine isn't to blame. (Shocking, right?) In this case, the heavy-handed culprit is ESPN The Magazine, which, according to Nicki Minaj, botched the retouching job on her Music Issue cover co-starring Kobe Bryant. Guys, you do not want to get on this lady's bad side.

Specifically, Minaj has a bone to pick with the size of her forehead in the finished image. Naturally, she took to Instagram to air her grievances, sharing a behind-the-scenes snapshot and commenting, "I love my personal unretouched photos where my forehead doesn't mysteriously grow in length." Burn.

Guys, it's one thing to touch up a few blemishes. Giving a beautiful woman an extended forehead, however, is not cool. In ESPN's defense, the image Minaj posted isn't an exact, unretouched copy of the one on the cover, so we can't really classify it as a "before" shot. That said, Minaj does look more attractive in her version.
If we were the rapper, we'd worry less about the forehead and more about the fact that she apparently has no lap or upper thighs on the cover. Seriously — what is going on there? (Jezebel)
