Nicki Minaj’s transformation: Nicki Minaj has gone through quite the transformation over her life. Looks are incredibly important to superstars. Often women are judged, whether fairly or unfairly, by how they look. It really doesn’t matter what walk of life you are talking about, women are almost always judged far more than men about their looks. Nicki Minaj is more than aware of this fact and regularly puts herself on display for any and all takers. Taking that position has led Minaj to go through a massive physical transformation that has taken her down the path of plastic surgery again and again.
