For years, Lil’ Kim has been known for her colorful hair styles, but after a recent night out in Los Angeles, it’s safe to say no one was looking at her locks.
The rapper, whose real name is Kimberly Denise Jones, stepped out on Feb. 1 with an almost unrecognizable face, including what appeared to be lighter skin, fuller cheekbones and a smaller nose. Her new look comes several months after reports began surfacing that Lil’ Kim had undergone plastic surgery.
After rising to fame in the late ’90s with hit singles like “No Time,” “Magic Stick” and a remake of “Lady Marmalade,” Lil’ Kim served one year in a federal detention center in 2006 for lying to a Federal grand jury about a shooting involving a friend. She competed on Season 8 of Dancing with the Stars in 2009 and is next expected to release her fifth studio album sometime this year.

“On the 1st day of Xmas my Queen Bee gave to me: An exclusive never before seen picture just for U!!! Muah!!! ” she tweeted with the picture. The shot shows Lil’ Kim wearing a curve hugging gold dress and matching booties with presents surrounding her. The photo is also autographed by Kim.
Trending #QBXMAS on Twitter, Kim’s 12 Days of Christmas campaign will select a random winner from her followers and be announced each evening until Christmas.
A few days ago Kim took to Twitter to announce that she and her boyfriend, rapper Mr. Papers have broken up. But it seems as if the two have reconciled and Queen Bee is back together with Mr. Papers. “Hey my #TeamLilKim. I just wanted to let U know me and @mr_papers had our differences but we are back 2gether & we are very much in Love,” she tweeted.
“I always battle with how much I reveal about myself,” the 31-year-old singer says in the clip, as we begin to get snapshots from childhood video to recent onstage footage. Watch above.
“Everybody knows Beyoncé’s music, but few know Beyoncé the person,” Michael Lombardo, president of HBO Programming said in a statement recently. “Along with electrifying footage of Beyoncé onstage, this unique special looks beyond the glamour to reveal a vibrant, vulnerable, unforgettable woman.”
The special will include both personal footage, some of which was shot by Beyoncé on her laptop, along with the addition of home movies of the superstar growing up Houston. The storyline will follow her from early childhood throughout her journey to becoming a pop star, and now, as she plots life after the after the birth of daughter Blue Ivy.
Lil Kim has labeled Drake “a bottom”…in other words, a homosexual man! In a recent interview with PRLOG, Kimberly Jones blasted Drake, calling him a “b***h” and a “p***y.”The Queen has had it out for Young Money/ Cash Money ever since she claims they stole her style and gave it to Nicki Minaj!
“I mean, people are so hard on Chris (Brown). He made a mistake, he owned up to it, and he and Rihanna have moved on with their lives. But since that incident it’s so easy to blame Chris. What I know about Drake is he is b***h-made,” said Kim.
“Meaning he’s an instigator, and a p***y. He had no issue stepping to Lil Kim, I’m like five feet tall” she continued. “But he didn’t try stepping to Chris, a man, because he’s simply a coward. At the end of the day, you don’t gotta be a tough guy to be a rapper, but don’t dress up in Gangsta Drag when you a bitch.”
She ended on one note: “Drake’s a bottom – y’all know what I mean when I say that.”
What a woman! It was only days ago that Lil Kim announced that she is in a relationship and in love with boyfriend ‘Mr Papers.’ The Queen, who is currently on tour, shared her weed rolling talents with her Twitter followers.
Fans weren’t pleased with Kim’s tricks though. They immediately attacked her and the hotel room she was staying in. “I love me some lil Kim everybody knows but that pic of her with that blunt isn’t flattering or the least bit cute,” said one fan.
We think she looks cute, minus the leaf in her mouth, and those shoes!
Lil’ Kim’s “Return of the Queen” tour made its way to the Key Club in Los Angeles on Wednesday night. The Queen Bee stormed the stage shortly after midnight, performing hit after hit spanning from her debut Hard Core to her latest mixtape Black Friday, and bringing some special guests with her.
The crowd went wild when Da Brat joined her for “Not Tonight (Ladies Night Remix)” and her own single “What’chu Like,” while The Lady of Rage rocked with “Afro Puffs” and her remix to Snoop Dogg’s “I Wanna Rock.” Kurupt repped for the West Coast with “Explosive.”
After “Love & Hip Hop’s” Somaya Reece spit some bars, Kimmy Blanco brought out a blast from the past. Two-thirds of R&B/hip-hop trio City High, Ryan Toby and Robbie Pardlo, took it back with their 2001 hit “What Would You Do?”
Check out some HD footage of Kim performing “Quiet Storm (Remix),” “It’s All About the Benjamins,” “Get Money,” and “Lighters Up.” We’ll update as more video surfaces.
Who better to perform at LA’s Gay Pride Festival than the Queen B?!
Lil Kim hit the stage last night in her sexiest outfits to give the audience the performance of their dreams.
In a series of bedazzled leotards, Kim showed off her curves and danced her bum off in some killer heels and then switched it up into a sparkly hoodie, micro shorts and another pair of sky high shoes.
And Queen B brought a crew with her. She had a clique of ninja-dressed back up dancers holding her down on stage.
The LA Pride Festival continues all weekend but we don’t know if anything can top a performance from the “Jumpoff” rapper.
Check out her sexy wardrobe changes in the accompanying gallery.

THE BRONX, New York — Female MCs, take note: The Queen wants her throne back. On Friday night (May 18), Lil’ Kim strutted into the Paradise Theatre in the BX, and dusted off her ’90s hits and some new tracks, too. And if anyone had come expecting just to bathe in shiny suit-era nostalgia, the pint-size rapper made it clear this show was about looking forward.
The Notorious K.I.M. was on the New York leg of her Return of the Queen Tour, and MTV’s RapFix got a front seat to the Queen Bee’s sound check and pre-show rehearsal. Kim, casual in floral-camo-print drawstring pants, a pink tee and sneakers, kept her sunglasses on as she ran through a selection of song’s from the set list, including the blood-curdling classic “Queen Bitch” and a reinterpretation of the reggae-infused “Man Down.”
But those were just teasers for the main event, a theatrical affair that saw the Bed-Stuy spitter incorporating a flag-waving K.I.M. army, dancers and more. While there was no Biggie hologram like we’d secretly hoped, Kim made good with some surprising special guests as Missy Elliott and Eve helped make it ladies’ night with a performance of Missy Misdemeanor’s “Hot Boyz” remix. Then Harlem’s own Juelz Santana hit the smoked-out stage for a rendition of “Beamer, Benz or Bentley.”
Still, this was Kim’s show, and she reminded the hard-core fans who began filing in on Friday around 7 p.m., by dipping into favorites like “Crush on You” and “No Time” from her 1996 debut, Hard Core. Of course, she couldn’t resist doing recent tracks as well, including the Nicki-baiting “Black Friday,” for which Kim puts her growl to good use. Dipset member Juelz Santana was also on hand to hit the stage.
Azealia Banks may have as many songs as beefs at this point. Following her recent spat with T.I. and Iggy Azalea, the super-sassy Harlem artist went on the attack against Lil Kim over a failed collaboration. Banks claims that Kim was unresponsive to an offer to appear on a record she was working on. Trying to jump-start the process, Banks ghostwrote a verse for Kim and subsequently suffered the wrath of her assistant.
“Okay so true… Lil Kim got mad that I wrote a verse for her on a record I wanted her on,” Banks wrote. “Everybody knows Lil Kim doesn’t write her own raps and I saw this as a faster more efficient way of getting the track done. She then had her assistant write me some long ass offensive email about how Lil Kim writes her own raps and doesn’t need anyone’s help.”
After the short tirade, Kim’s publicist released a statement dubbing the entire episode manufactured drama. “My client and Azealia have NEVER spoke to one another or met AT ALL. Kim was actually very flattered by Azealia’s public admiration for her, which is why it’s so hard to understand how someone who claims to be a true Lil Kim fan could flip the script so easily on someone who was supposedly their idol.”
Banks, apparently sick of the back-and-forth, called it quits soon after. “Another week, another Twitter feud,” she wrote. “I’m deleting it now.”
We dont have to say anything the pictures speaks for itself!
Is Lil Kim the next rapper to ink a deal with the respectable, yet controversial G-Unit Records? The Bed-Stuy Brooklyn born native is rumored to be the next act to join forces with Queens mogul 50 Cent on his fledging imprint. If so, Kim would be following in the footsteps of Atlanta entrepreneur Shawty Lo who recently announced that he was the latest member to sign with the Unit.
This past weekend Kim surprised fans at the Phillips Arena in Atlanta for the 16th annual “Birthday Bash” concert popping up during Shawty Lo’s set mid-way through his performance that kicked off with a video introduction from the G-Unit mastermind himself. Kim’s appearance sent the arena into a complete zoo-like atmosphere.
“If ya’ll don’t know, this my boy right here” Kim said referring to L-O. “G-Unit South, that’s where it’s at and I’m family too, down with the G-Unit camp. We got surprises for ya’ll.”
Lil Kim’s broad comments led many to believe she was on the verge, if not already, joining G-Unit. There’s been rumblings in the past of the two rap vets teaming up but the reports have been building over the last few days. Last week during a radio interview with host Funkmaster Flex the disc jockey bombarded Fif with a series of questions, one of those regarding Lil Kim.
“I haven’t had the opportunity to record with her” 50 answered Flex when asked what was the status of their business relationship. “We was talking about getting together to do something so we’ll probably get together. When she said we was working together we had conversations about going in to do it cause you know, we had “Magic Stick” in the past and we made some things that felt good so I was like ‘I’m open to it.’ So we’ll find some time to get in and go ahead and do something.”
While 50′s comments may not exactly sound convincing in regards to adding Kim to his roster considering the two have yet to join each other in the studio, 50 has made it clear throughout his career that he’s a strategy perfectionist so keeping his lips sealed until a potential deal would be complete wouldn’t necessarily be abnormal. Aside from a minor beef years back courtesy of Lil Kim’s violent ex-boyfriend (Kim’s man at the time attempted to fire at 50 and his crew at a New Jersey hotel), Kim and 50 have been on good terms for the majority of their careers. Months back when 50 tweeted photos of a few studio sessions featuring Busta Rhymes and Ryan Leslie, Fif also showed a photo of himself alongside the Queen Bee.
Kim launched her careers on the back of the late great Notorious B.I.G. making a household name for herself as Hip-Hop’s most sought after female MC. Since B.I.G.’s untimely passing Kim has been aligned with other influential rap stars including Diddy and Jay-Z. As one of the last heirs to the Christopher Wallace throne, would a move to G-Unit benefit Kim’s career? Only time will tell.

Lil Kim will become the latest in Hip-Hop to sit down with Sway Calloway when she appears on an episode of MTV’s ‘Rap Fix Live ‘this week.
On Thursday Kim will discuss her Black Friday mixtape, answer viewer’s questions and discuss her new anti-Nicki Minaj documentary ‘Carbon Copy.’
As previously reported, ‘Carbon Coby’ is a 12 minute film executive produced by Nicki’s ex-manager Fendi.
Jacki-O is not in the least bit happy about Lil Kim, after Kim used her alter ego Griselda Blanco the cocaine cowgirl.
As previously reported, Jacki-O was recently given permission from Griselda Blanco’s son to use “Blanco” as her alias.
Jacki-O thinks that Lil Kim is not only worthy of using the alter ego but is also being disrespectful, and shows her dislike in lyrics like:
“This B*tch is Jacki Jacking!”
Peep the track below and let us know if you think Jacki-O has ethered Lil Kim, or is getting herself involved in a pointless beef?

Lil’ Kim has taken to Twitter to explain her comment made about LA songbird Keyshia Cole during her rant on New Year’s Eve at a show in Massachusetts.
As previously reported, Lil’ Kim took offense to the collaboration of Nicki Minaj and Keyshia Cole for Keyshia’s single “I Aint Thru”.
According to Kim, the track which features Minaj, was a diss to herself and the “Queen Of Hip-Hop Soul” Mary J. Blige.
Speaking on the subliminal diss, Kim told the crowd that she and Blige are ready to “eat these b*tches alive” and erase their social security numbers.
“I think this other b*tch got a song with Keyshia Cole, right? Coming at me and the muthaf*ckin’ other queen, Mary J. Blige. Me and my girl Mary J. Blige about to eat these b*tches alive where they won’t even f*cking exist no more and erase their f*cking social security number! We gon’ remind them who the f*ck we are! I’m not playing with this b*tch for 2011. I’m saying, we can rock together but b*tch you ain’t taking nothing from me!”
Although video as been posted of Kim making the comment, now via Twitter, Lil’ Kim is stating that her remarks about Keyshia Cole were taken out of context.
“Let me address somethings since the media is blowing sh*t outta proportion,” Kim wrote January 2nd. “i’ve always had love 4 @keyshiacole but i would have never let anyone catch reck on her on my track cause keyshia was my friend in my eyes. all i was saying on NYE was me & @maryjblige do what we do & are who we are. & when me n mary collab its always a movie. that’s my sister.”
Hmm…I don’t know if Lil’ Kim got a call from Frankie or Neffie, but I see Lil’ Kim is back peddling on this one.
