Nicki Minaj recently had an interview with Kobe Bryant along with a photoshoot, which appeared on the ESPN magazine. She made a few comments regarding the pictures and thinks her forehead was retouched:
She shared one picture and wrote alongside the cover, Nicki simply wrote, “When retouching goes wrong.”
Nicki added: “I love my personal unretouched photos where my forehead doesn’t mysteriously grow in length.”
Looking at them they don’t look too retouched. It could be that the lens distorted the image a little. Coming from experience, a wide angle lens often distorts images.
