If I asked you what you think of Nicki Minaj, you would probably immediately mention something about her songs "Super Bass" and "Anaconda" and their infamous videos that depict women in sensuous ways. Yes, Nicki is always associated with having a big butt, and that has actually helped her popularity.
But do you know what she looked like before she was even named Nicki Minaj and before she supposedly had plastic surgery? If you don't, check out the rarely seen images below.
Before we knew about the curvy singer that Nicki Minaj is, her name was actually Onika Maraj. Moreover, she looked significantly different compared to her appearance today.
In the surprise footage that was uncovered, Onika Maraj can be seen at the La Guardia High School.
Nicki became angry at the fact that someone decided to release a video of her young self. She even unfollowed those who re-tweeted the video link.
Nicki Minaj did not want people to know about her past and how distinct it is from when she allegedly had plastic surgery.
In this rarely seen image, Nicki is smiling for the camera with perfectly white teeth and a simple yet cute hairstyle.
Perhaps Nicki Minaj does not want to remember her old days, but it is a great way to see how much she has grown physically and emotionally.
Her short acting clip from La Guardia High School can also be viewed as a sign of her bright future.
One of the things the rapper has to understand is that everyone goes through significant changes in their lives, and it's completely okay to accept who you were.
Because in the end, this is a sentimental gift both for her and her fans.
If Nicki Minaj was not acting and being likable at such a young age, she might not have been popular. Don't worry, Nicki Minaj, we appreciate you regardless of your supposed cosmetic surgeries.
