What would compel a beautiful young woman to go under the knife countless times seeking perfection resulting in anything but perfection? Well, the same thing made her rap about her “Kitty Box” and sexing up men for money all the while referring to herself as a bitch – little to no self esteem.
Should anyone really be surprised by the result of low self esteem, self hatred, and feelings of worthlessness? Saddened maybe, but not surprised. One web resourse states that Kimberly Denise Jones lived with her father after her parents’ divorce until she was a teenager and he kicked her out of the house. Another source states that Kim ran away from home unable to abide by her father’s strict rules. Regardless of how it came about I’m sure psychologist would love to get her on their sofa. (no pun intended)
I have often wondered about this girl. How lacking a strong foundation, the lure of money and fame seduced her into sexually explicit rap lyrics and whorish costumes. But that wasn’t enough. She so despised her looks that, with the help of plastic surgeons, has morphed into an Asian woman.
While some may argue she worked the system to her benefit and made a lot of money in the process I am reminded of the saying, “what profits a man to gain the whole world and lose his soul“.
So pull out your Psych degrees and tell me what is your take on Lil Kim?
