They say that a picture is worth a thousand words.
Therefore, with Lil Kim having shared a collage of six pictures on Instagram over the weekend, followers are left with six-thousand words to use in response.
But they really just need one, and it's barely even a word:
The 41-year old rapper has evoked memories of Michael Jackson by seemingly altering her appearance in order to look more white.
Just look at her blonde hair. Just stare at her lighter skin tone. How else should we interpret these changes?
"Miami Heat," Lil Kim wrote as a caption, revealing little about the transformation except for where she was located upon posing for these photos.
The artist also shared a video in which she was hanging out with a couple of friends at the Fontainebleau resort in this Florida city:
As you can see, it doesn't make a reference to her lighter hair or skin color, either.
But fans most definitely have taken notice.
"Lil Kim situation is sad because she was a dark skinned Black woman. Not mixed, not racially ambiguous. Dark skinned. And beautiful," wrote one Internet user, while also another:
"I’m so sad for Lil Kim and her current face. Self hate in our community is very real and worth discussing."
We have no idea whether or not Lil Kim actually hates herself.
But it's hard to argue that she looks very different now (above) than she did before (below).
Last month, the former Dancing with the Stars contestant released a 10-song mixtape titled "Lil Kim Season on Datpiff," but she has not released a full album since 2005's "The Naked Truth"
She has said this hiatus is due to her focus on motherhood, with Lil Kim having given birth to a daughter named Royal Reign with Mr. Papers.
For the sake her child, we therefore hope Lil Kim is in a positive mental place.
If so, hey, she can do whatever she wants with her appearance.
