Whether she’s wearing neon colored wigs or going for a more “natural” and subdued look, rapper Nicki Minaj definitely knows how to get people talking. Once again, the topic of focus is Nicki’s famously large rear end and the possibility of the star having buttocks implants—which may or may not have exploded while performing at a recent show.
During a performance of her hit song Anaconda, which celebrates her big booty, Nicki dropped to the floor and sprawled in a chair with her rear end heading in different directions, making the performer look something like a turtle on its back.
RadarOnline reports that fans at the show immediately noticed the bizarre appearance of the star’s derriere.
“Everything about @NICKIMINAJ is so fake. Her butt, her personality, her swag. More like Nicki Mirage!” tweeted one.
“Lol at Nicki Minaj because she sings about having a big butt, yet her butt is fake!” posted another.
Fans aren’t the only ones that think that Nicki’s butt is the result of plastic surgery rather than nature.
“It does appear that she’s had some sort of augmentation in the gluteal area,” Beverly Hills plastic surgeon Dr. David Feldmar, who has not treated the star, exclusively tells RadarOnline.com. “It looks like she had gluteal implants placed, or perhaps got fat injections.”
In fact, Nicki’s rear end looked so big and painful, that Media Takeout reports that her implants may have ruptured during the performance and flipped inside out, creating the bizarre appearance.
A source for the online tabloid explained, “She hurt her butt when she stretched out. They were like they heard a pop. Since Nicki’s butt is fake, everyone thought her butt may have burst.”
Media Takeout goes on to report that the injury wasn’t serious and Nicki left the show on her own, without medical aid but did later visit a doctor.
Although Nicki’s butt is usually the target of plastic surgery rumors, Nicki has never addressed them. She has only been adamant about not having any work done on her face.
”I’ve never had surgery on my face. They’ll see contour and they’ll think you had surgery on your nose. No, no, no, look at RuPaul’s Drag Race and you’ll see how you can make your nose look any shape you want. When people see my makeup, they think all types of crazy things that I’m doing to my skin, but it’s makeup.”
In fact, Nicki is so adamant that her face is natural that lately she has been sporting a more natural look, without the crazy colored wig and bold makeup that made her famous.
However, her makeup artist has said that he prefers the crazy colors to the new natural look.
“For me, I prefer wigs. I can style them. I can put stuff on before I go. And then I can do whatever I want to. I can put more heat. I can put more color. Whereas with natural hair, you have to be a lot more careful and mindful. That’s a concern for me with Nicki wearing her natural hair almost everyday: It’s a lot of wear and tear on the hair. I’m trying to gradually get her back into wigs, but she’s adamant now. She doesn’t want it.”none
