These days, in regards to beauty standards, evidently plastic makes perfect. Actress Salma Hayek said it best when she said, “Plastic surgery is like the uniform of a generation. And it’s not necessarily beautiful. It’s not wrinkled-looking, but it’s not beautiful.” That describes the more obvious surgical cases precisely.
Celebrities are some of the most self hating individuals on the planet, and it's made clear in the physical alterations they often make. It's especially unfortunate because of the heavy influence these stars have on young impressionable minds. Thanks to the industry they work in, there's a lot of pressure to adhere to a certain beauty ideal, but sometimes it's taken too far. What usually happens is a celebrity's insecurity bothers them so much, that they finally decide to do something to change it, only to end up highlighting the feature that made them so self conscious in the first place!
Take the grotesque backsides of rapper Nicki Minaj, and reality TV star Kim Kardashian for instance. The two plastic surgery addicts have had photographs from their younger years exposed, in which their bottoms look at least 100 times smaller than they do today in 2015; signifying an obvious insecurity of the past. It almost seems like a running contest to see who can have the bigger, most ridiculously unrealistic, disproportionate butt. Who would you say is in the lead right now? Or rapper Iggy Azalea, who's face was virtually unrecognizable when she appeared at the 2015 Billboard music awards, after extensive cosmetic surgery. Instead of following the lead of these deeply insecure and likely tormented celebs, let us be encouraged to love and embrace our own unique flaws and features. As a reminder, here are 12 stars who's physical insecurity led them to be mutilated by plastic surgery.
12 Kylie Jenner
11 Iggy Azalea
10 Britney Spears
9 Nicki Minaj
8 Kim Kardashian
7 Bruce Jenner
6 Dolly Parton
Country music icon Dolly Parton, once a darling natural beauty, is very candid about her inclination towards plastic surgery. In an interview with 60 minutes, she reveals that she never felt herself a natural beauty, although many of us would strongly disagree. More specifically, the living legend said, "I'm not a striking beauty and I know that, I guess that was always one of the reasons I always liked to wear too much make up. I always wanted to be prettier, I always wanted to be more." The multi talented songbird makes her body dismorphia apparent when she discusses her motivation behind undergoing so much plastic surgery. Seemingly in denial, the famous 36DD has stated in another interview that, "I'm very careful when I do have surgery because I don't ever do anything a lot. When somethings saggin' draggin' or baggin' I take care of it then, but not a whole big deal all at once where you look different. You have to be careful with that."
5 La Toya Jackson
4 Joan Rivers
3 Donatella Versace
2 Lil Kim
1 Michael Jackson
The late King of Pop, Michael Jackson is known for his extraordinary talents and his unrivaled successful music career. However, he's also remembered for the numerous mutilating plastic surgeries that took him from a handsome young African American male, to a completely unrecognizable other person. The pop icon went from the most revered superstar in the world, to the butt of every joke due to his increasingly startling appearance and bizarre behavior. At one point, Michael was reportedly forced to wear a prosthetic nose for having undergone over a dozen rhinoplasties that turned his once ethnic masculine nose into a tiny weakened button nose. He was called names like Wacko Jacko by critics who were puzzled by his drastic choices. Although Michael insisted that his sudden white skin complexion was the result of the skin disease vitiligo, many believe the late legend bleached his skin due to his supposed hatred for being black. Michael often opened up about the bullying he faced from family members in his youth regarding his large nose. Namely his father, who the sensitive musician blamed as his main source of trauma. Michael was the perfect example of someone who suffered from extremely severe body image issues, which ultimately led to self mutilation.
