Did IU Undergo Plastic Surgery?

IU (Lee Ji-eun) is a popular South Korean singer, songwriter and actress. There has been IU plastic surgery rumours circulating in internet forums for a few years. After looking at her younger photos, some netizens could not believe that her present beauty came about naturally. Some of the plastic surgery rumours include a nose job and eyelid surgery. The reports online include before and after photos of IU, showing distinct differences in her nose and eyes.

IU Has An Amazing Musical Career

IU was born on May 16, 1993. She is now of age 23. Since age 15, she has been active in her musical career. Her first album was Lost and Found which did not have much success. However, her next albums, Growing Up and IU…IM, brought her great success. Her single “Good Day”, shares the same record as “Gangnam Style” on the Gaon Digital Chart.

Her success did not stop there. In 2011, she followed up with two best selling albums Real+ and Last Fantasy. This was the year when IU ventured into song writing. She wrote her first song, “Hold My Hand” for the television series The Greatest Love.

Watch this video when IU was interviewed back in 2011:

Compare that to another interview in 2014: 

Here is one of her latest performances in Taipei 2017:

By 2013, she mellowed down on her “young girl” image and turned more matured. In recent years, IU also dabbled in acting with great success. Some of the shows IU starred in include You’re the Best, Lee Soon-shin, Pretty Man and The Producers.

As such, being such a prominent celebrity in South Korea, IU faces the constant pressure of looking her best. Any slight changes in her face will spark a huge wave of plastic surgery rumours. We will examine her changes in appearances year by year, followed by comparing her before and after photos side by side.

IU in her Audition Years

IU young photos

Here is a photo of IU during an audition we believe  (but cannot confirm). The lack of makeup made her look very different from now. But her nose is noticeably flat. Furthermore, she looked slightly chubby. After all, if this photo was taken in 2007, she was only 14 years old. Though some might say that her facial changes are obvious, it is not conclusive because she was way too young then.

IU Had Natural Beauty

This picture above might have been taken sometime in 2008, when IU was 15 years old. Her face has sharpened somewhat. Her nose seemed to have turned sharper within a year. Her eyes seemed bigger now compared to the previous year. This could be her clever use of eye makeup.

This 2008 photo (above) shows IU much prettier than before. Her hair is well groomed and her eyes start to show double eyelids. But here eye bags started to form in this photo. Her nose seems to look better as she age! Her sharper nose cannot be the result of a nose job because she was too young for that!

In this next photo, you can see that IU is starting to look like her present self. She has used eye makeup again to make her eyes look bigger. Her face shape has become sharper, probably due to the camera angle. Does she look good in green?

The photo above was taken in 2010. Here you can see the evolution of IU, from a young girl to a more matured adult. Her long straight hair is a reflection of growing maturity. Some say that her facial skin has undergone some whitening. But her lighter skin tone is likely due to makeup. Her nose bridge still looks the same width. Her nose tip is remains the same. And she looks better in purple than green.

In 2011, it was the year IU had one of the biggest hits of her career. Her single, “Someday”, sold more than 2.2 million digital copies. It became one of IU’s best selling single of all time. This was the time when plastic surgery gossip about her lighter skin color started. Some say that it could not be due to makeup. But it is hard to believe that IU would go to such drastic measure to lighten her skin color. Her nose and eyes still look largely the same.

While attending a publication party at the Kyobo Bookstore, IU decided to turn back in time for a younger outfit. Here, she is dressed in a flowery yellow top that makes her look like a young girl. There is hardly any signs of plastic surgery. Just that her eyebrows looked slightly messy in this photo (above).

The photo above was taken in October 2013 when IU posed for her 3rd Album “Modern Times” at the K-Art Hall. Still, she is void of any plastic surgery signs. Her chin has turned slightly rounder compared to her previous photos. Her nose shape is still the same. No signs of eyelid surgery as well because if she did, her swollen eye bags will not be there.

Here, IU is seen attending the KCON 2014 at the Los Angeles Memorial Sports Arena held on the August 9, 2014. In this photo, its the strongest case of skin whitening speculation as she looked very very “white”. Together with her bright red lipstick, she wore a great combination dress with red roses. Her jaw shape and nose shape remained the same. No evidence of her having undergone plastic surgery.

One will wonder why IU has constantly neglected her heavy eye bags. In this shot taken on May 27, 2015, IU attended the SONY Korea- Premium BlueTooth Audio Launch. Her nose shape remains the same. She seemed to look prettier naturally rather than using plastic surgery. She has managed to retain much of her teenage charm into her early 20s.

In one of her latest appearance for Sony Korea “MDR-1000X” launch on Sept 21 2016 in Seoul, IU looked slightly tired. Her eye bags were not only showing, but seemed to be of a different skin color. Though she put on rather thick makeup, her tiredness kept her from looking energetic. Her chin still retains the same shape as before.

Now in 2017, IU still looks natural. Anyone saying that she had plastic surgery must have compared her very young photos to her present self. In the above photo, she waves to the camera at the Taiwan airport. She has been very consistent in her makeup colors during the last few years. Her nose should be much sharper if she had undergone a nose job. Those IU plastic surgery speculations are just guesswork with nothing to back up.

Most of the plastic surgery sites will compare IU’s childhood photos with her present ones. There is nothing wrong with such comparison. In fact, it is interesting to compare them to see how she grew into such a beauty today. Let take a look at some of her now and then photos, together with the alleged plastic surgery procedures.

IU and Nose Job Rumors

Nose jobs are very popular among celebrities. Having a well done nose job can enhance the looks of the celebrity tremendously. For Asian celebrities, many are born with rounder and flatter noses. Noses are generally smaller than the Western celebrities. Thus, a good nose job can create a significant difference in the looks department.

With today’s technology advancement, a nose job has a high degree of success. However, one must not overlook the risks involved with nose jobs. Any mistake could prove hard to correct. Revisionary rhinoplasty usually does not turn out well.

Iu Nose job Rumors before and after

For IU, here natural nose is small and has a round tip. IU will definitely look more beautiful and elegant with a sharper nose. However, when you compare IU before and after photos, there is no signs of nose job at all. Her nose has remained the same. Even when you compare these two photos above, you can see nothing was done to her nose.

IU and Eyelid Surgery Rumors

Eyelid surgery is commonly used to reduce the fine lines around the eyes. As a person age, eyelids can have several folds due to the loss of muscle elasticity. Some also undergo eyelid surgery to have double eyelids and to make their eyes look bigger. Often, people who undergo eyelid surgery will also request to have their eyebags reduced.

Iu eyelid surgery before and after

For IU, she has been having big eye bags for years. Her eyes look bigger because of eyeliners and eye makeup. It is unlikely for her to undergo eyelid surgery. If she had done so, her eye bags should be removed by now.

Overall, IU has remained naturally looking despite all the plastic surgery rumors. Some of those plastic surgery speculations might have been the result of jealousy and envy. At age 23, IU has achieved many milestones in her career. It is important for her to look good at all times. To say that she used plastic surgery to attain her beauty is definitely untrue. Let’s look forward to more exciting performances from IU in the years to come. What do you think of IU plastic surgery rumors? True or false?

Yoona Plastic Surgery Before and After Photos

Did Yoona Undergo Plastic Surgery?

Yoona is one of the most popular South Korean singer and actress. Her beautiful looks and energetic demeanour has attracted lots of plastic surgery speculations. Moreover, many South Korean celebrities have undergone the knife to enhance their looks. Some of the alleged Yoona plastic surgeries include eyelid surgery, a nose job and jaw reshaping surgery.

Yoona started her career as a member of the popular girl group Girls’ Generation. Born on May 30,1990, Yoona wanted to be a singer since young. After being cast in the SM Saturday Open Casting Audition, Yoona was subjected to the normal tough “entertainment training” of celebrities wannabes in South Korea. Noted for her dancing skills, its didn’t take long for Yoona to be selected for Girls’ Generation. In August 2007, Yoona became the main focus of the group.

Watch a video of Yoona being interviewed back in 2012:

This is another interview with Yoona together with Kyu Hyun and Sulli in 2013:

Compare the above videos to a recent interview on Sina. She speaks good Chinese!:

Yoona Ventured into Acting – A HUGE SUCCESS!

Yoona is not only a great singer and dancer. She excelled in acting too. In 2008, she got her first breakthrough when she played the main role of Jang Sae-byuk in You Are My Destiny. Her splendid performance won her the Best New Actress Award at the KBS Drama Awards.

Watch Yoona in action for You Are My Destiny:

Over the years, Yoona attained widespread recognition for her acting. When the drama Love rain flopped, Yoona’s acting was the show’s saving grace. Many fans started to notice her talent for acting.  In 2013, Yoona acted in the drama series Prime Minister and I. Again, though the series did not receive high ratings, Yoona was praised for her acting. She won an Excellence Award at the 2013 KBS Drama Awards for her effort.

Here is Yoona with the cast of Prime Minister and I being interviewed:

With so much at stake, it is important for Yoona to keep herself looking fresh and attractive. Still in her mid 20s, she faces much competition for leading roles against newcomers. In South Korea, the competition is very stiff. Younger stars can emerge and take the limelight very quickly. Thus, it is very important that Yoona stay ahead of the game by keeping her beauty intact.

Yoona and Nose Job Rumors

Unlike other articles that compare a very young Yoona to her present self, let’s take a look at her pre debut photos and her current photos. After all, Yoona was only 17 years old when she made her Girls’ Generation debut. It is hard for anyone to undergo plastic surgery before that age.

Nose jobs are used to reshape the nose. Most celebrities want a sharper nose tip with a narrower nose bridge. For Yoona, here before and after photos show slight differences in her nose tip. However, you must take note that Yoona was still very young in the pre debut photos – her nose might not be fully developed yet. Thus, despite the slight difference in her nose shape, there is a chance that Yoona did not undergo a nose job.

In fact, in her most recent photos, Yoona’s nose does not look “fixed” or unnatural at all. Her nose is still slightly rounded at the tip. If she underwent a nose job, she would have requested a much “sharper” nose than this.

Yoona and Jaw Reshaping Surgery Rumors

Some say that Yoona has undergone jaw reshaping surgery. For someone to undergo jaw reshaping surgery, the person must have tremendous courage. It is a tedious operation and requires long recovery time. The pain and suffering is severe.

For Yoona, her face shape has not changed much. If you look at her recent photos, you can see her with pretty full rounded cheeks. She does not possess the sharp chin as expected from a jaw surgery. Come on, its obvious that she did not fix her jaw.

Yoona and Eyelid Surgery Rumors

Eyelid surgery is popular among celebrities. And many times, this surgery is conducted with multiple objectives. Common objectives include the removal of eye bags, the construction of double eyelids, the reduction of crows’ feet and the enlargement of the eyes. Though painful, many women undergo this process in the hope of being more beautiful.

For Yoona, you can see from her earlier photos that she had pretty severe eye bags. Possibly coming from the lack of sleep due to practices, her eye bags were still there in her recent photos. The presence of her eye bags today tells us that she never went for any eyelid surgery.

If she had gone for eyelids surgery, she would have requested her eye bags to be removed. Furthermore, her “bigger” eyes are the result of clever makeup and nothing else. Makeup around the eyes can do wonders. Just do a youtube search and you can see the wonders of eye makeup.

Overall, Yoona has transformed herself from a novice to a beauty in less than 10 years. Despite other posts claiming that she has undergone plastic surgery, we feel that Yoona has largely remained natural. She might have had a nip and tuck here and there. But there is no signs of any alteration on her, other than the common effects of aging. Yoona is truly one of the most beautiful artistes in South Korea right now and she does it naturally. What do you think of Yoona plastic surgery rumors?

Jennifer Nettles and Bon Jovi Combination

Jennifer Nettles and Boob Job Rumors

Any celebrity who experiences a sudden breast growth is subjected to breast augmentation speculations. Boob jobs are popular among ladies because it is known to increase self confidence and self esteem in women. Having smaller boobs could also mean lesser media attention in the entertainment industry.

So, when Jennifer Nettles shows off some cleavage, there were widespread rumors that she has undergone breast implants surgery. However, some fail to take into account that Jennifer Nettles had a childbirth in December 2012. Post pregnancy boobs can look much bigger. Here are two photos, one taken in 2013 and the other in 2015. These two photos show Jennifer Nettles showing off her cleavage (which is quite rare).

Examine the outline of her upper boob and you will see that that her boobs look all natural without any surgical enhancement. Typically, breast implants will cause boobs to look very “round” and tight. But in the case of Jennifer Nettles, her boob lines resembles more of saggy boobs than perky breast implants.

Watch Jennifer Nettles Back in 2010 with Sugarland:


Compare that to a recent 2016 interview at American Country Countdown Awards:

Jennifer Nettles Changes over the Years

Here is a shot of Jennifer Nettles in 2007, attending the American Music Awards:

Jennifer Nettles opt for the pale coloured makeup in this photo. Her nose has a bulbous tip. Her hair has that rocker charm effect. Her cleavage is nothing to shout about.

When Jennifer attended the 2008 CMT Music Awards, (see below) her black tube dress got all the attention she deserves. She might have lost a few pounds during that period of time as her arms look significantly thinner, And oh… how she kept her hair looking so blond and good. She has removed much of the gothic eye makeup in her earlier photo and opted for simple eyelashes curlers instead.

Still, there are no signs of plastic surgery

In 2009, Jennifer Nettles group, Sugarland, had two nominations in the Academy of Country Music for Top Vocal Duo and Vocal Event of the Year. Sugarland won the Vocal Duo Of the year. Here (see below) she is seen attending the Kennedy Center Honors:

Here she looks exuberant and energised. Her cleavage does not suggest any boob joob done. Some say she got cheek implants but there isn’t any evidence here. Her nose still has the bump on the nose tip.

At the 2010 Billboard Touring Awards (see below), Jennifer Nettles looked much better than before. Her makeup creates more clarity on her facial features, especially her eyes. Her eye makeup actually made her eyes look bigger. Clever, very clever.

Jennifer Nettles continued looking great in 2011. She managed to hold back the effects of aging quite well. If you scroll up this post to the her picture in 2006, she has not changed much in the last 5 years. Her cheeks still look natural. The only obvious aging sign is the formation of crows feet around her eyes. She is seen attending the 49th Annual ASCAP Country Music Awards in the photo below:

Jennifer Nettles gave birth in December 2012. Prior to childbirth, Jennifer Nettles looked vibrant. She is seen attending the Woman’s Day Dress Awards in the photo below. Over the years, Jennifer Nettles seem to know what suits her best. This time, she wears the perfect makeup for her skin color. Oh, those blushers bring out Jennifer Nettles’ softer side. No signs of the alleged nose job or cheek lifts here.

In the 2014 CMT Music Awards ( see picture below), Jennifer Nettles opted to go against what was proven for her. Perhaps she wanted to turn back the clock to 2007 where she wore pale makeup colors. Such style does not really suit her and this is the first time she let her hair cover her forehead. Do you think this style suits her?

Despite her change in style, there is still no obvious sign of plastic surgery.

In 2015, Jennifer Nettles has recovered her nice taste. (see pic below) She reverted back to the familiar hairstyle, with more vibrant makeup colors. However, lines are starting to form beneath her eyes. It is amazing how her skin looks so supple and smooth with so little makeup. The photo below shows her big bright smile at the NBC Universal Press Tour:

Her appearance at her Visit to SiriusXM Studio had everyone taking (see photo below). This is the first time we see her taper down her beautiful hair locks which brings more attention to her face. There isn’t any obvious sign of plastic surgery. However, her cheeks seem fuller but it could be due to her redder blushers. The area under her eyes just give her age away.

Overall, there is not enough evidence to say that Jennifer Nettles has undergone cheek implants, nose jobs, liposuction or boob job. This is because we do not see her face change so drastically over the years. Jennifer Nettles has remained natural looking and there is no reason to suspect any plastic surgery done. It is unfair to credit her good upkeep to plastic surgery. Truly, Jennifer Nettles has remained a beautiful woman without much surgical intervention. What do you think of Jennifer Nettles plastic surgery rumors?

Joan Jett Plastic Surgery Before and After Photos

Did Joan Jett Undergo Plastic Surgery?

When you look back at the rock stars of the 1980s, there is this inevitable suspicion whether they underwent plastic surgery in their later years. Joan Jett, one of the most recognisable female rockers in the early 1980s, has been under intense plastic surgery speculations. Some of the alleged Joan Jett plastic surgery procedures include a nose job, facelift and botox injections.

One of the most commonly asked questions about celebrities is “When did all the plastic surgery gossip start?”. Well, to find out, you got to take a look at the appearance of Joan Jett over the years. Let’s travel back in time and see how Joan Jett changed through the decades. This will be interesting – Not many female rockers are featured in our posts and this is a rare one.

Watch Joan Jett in an interview with the legendary David Letterman in 1987 below:

Compare that to recent Joan Jett interview. What’s up with her sharp chin? Check it out: 

When Joan Jett Was Free From Plastic Surgery

Joan Jett was born on 22 September 1958, now of age 58. However, she looks much younger than her real age. If you look back at her rocking years, she has been rather youthful looking throughout. Here is a shot of Joan Jett with The Runaways, the early band founded by Joan Jett. The Runaways did not really have great success in the United States. They disbanded in 1979.

This picture was taken probably in 1976. This was when The Runaways were at the peak of their musical career. At age 18, these pictures show Joan Jett in her “plastic surgery free” days. Her devilish “Alice Cooper look alike” hair style and her “scowling” eyebrows complete the image of a tough female rocker.

Joan Jett continued to wear the image of a gothic rocker into the 1980s. She went solo for a short while before forming Joan Jett and The Blackhearts. Here is a photo, shot in 1981, showing Joan Jett having some fun wearing her headphones:

Don’t know why but Joan Jett looks much plumper in this photo! Her high cheeks and thick nose bridge are obvious features. And those eye makeup could make an angel look devilish.

Ok, time for some color photos. Here is another shot of Joan Jett in 1984 (above). Same smile, but looking much slimmer! Her thick nose bridge is also evident despite her apparent loss in weight. Her lower face looks much sharper now. Check out those “eye wings” on Joan Jett. She just looked so cool. Any plastic surgery? A BIG NO.

Here is another photo of Joan Jett in 1986 (below) attending the T J Martell Foundation Honors Quincy Jones. That cold stoney stare of Joan Jett is pretty intimidating. Instead of having those shadowy gothic eyes, Joan Jett opted for simple eye makeup. Still natural looking with untouched nose and chin.

While Joan Jett mostly appears as a rocker in photos, these two pics taken in 1990 (below) seem to show the softer side of Joan Jett:

Not sporting her usual spiky hair, Joan Jett trimmed her hair down to a short bob. With these pictures, she shows that beneath that rocker image lies a normal friendly gal.

In 1996, Joan Jett attended the Fourth Annual ESPY Awards. This is how she looked like:

Joan Jett 1996 - Ron Galella Getty Images

Joan Jett 1996 – Ron Galella Getty Images

This is the time when the first plastic surgery rumors began. But because the internet was not prevalent, there was not much hoo-haa over her SHARPER chin. Her chin seems to have sharpened up. And check out under her eyes – NO Eye bags! Could have been due to a clever makeup artist though. What a classic look!

And in 2000, there is no better way to celebrate the millennium than to shave her head! Here is Joan Jett in a rare bald head shot. Still looking like a rockstar as always. Her bald disposition seemed to draw more focus on her thick nose bridge and elevated cheeks. She has lost weight too. Check it out:

Four years later in 2004, Joan Jett was back to her short hair style again (below). Her shorter hair kinda suit her better. It adds more “steel” to her image than her previous hairstyles. Note that Joan Jett has remained largely the same throughout these years, other than some hairstyle changes.

It’s funny how rock stars never seem to age. Think of Mick Jagger, Bryan Adams and Steven Tyler. They just get better with age! That secret “formula” works for female rockers as well. Joan Jett still looked like a rocker in her mid 30s in Year 2008 (see pic below). Her face is free from deep wrinkles though she is already age 50. Oh.. those killer eyeliners still bring out the best features of Joan Jett – her EYES!

Its 2012, and this is where Joan Jett starts to look like a prettier version of young Alice Cooper (see pic below). Back to her hairstyle in 1996, Joan Jett’s cheeks looked very lifted, sparking rumors of a possible cheek lift. Her sharp chin is starting to get more obvious as she ages.

In 2014, we saw Joan Jett winning the Golden God Award, being the first woman to do so. She also played the guitar on the track “I Am A River” by Foo Fighters in their album Sonic Highways. Here (see pic below) she is attending the Foo Fighters: Sonic Highways New York Premiere. Dressed in a cool black jacket and unbuttoned inner shirt, Joan Jett looked as cool as she wanted to be. She looked natural and void of plastic surgeries. But someone has to tell her about her uneven eye brows… how did one eyebrow get so much higher than the other?!

Wooo, this picture (see below)  in 2016 scares quite a few people off. Joan Jett’s appearance at the 75th Anniversary USO Armed Forces Gala had everyone talking about her taut facial skin and smooth cheeks. Typically, as a person ages, their cheeks will start to sag. But there is no such signs on Joan Jett. Could her taut facial skin be due to multiple facelifts? Some say that there are signs of botox and facial fillers as her face look incredibly smooth. But a nose job is still unlikely as she still has a thick nose bridge with a bulbous nose tip.

Overall, Joan Jett has aged well. She embodies the qualities of a great musician, always belting out songs straight from her heart. Even if she did use plastic surgery, it was only in minute doses. Her face still looks great and natural. Those nose job speculations do not really hold true as her nose has remained largely the same.

If Jett opted for a nose job, how could her nose look the same? After the loss of music legends like Michael Jackson and Prince, we should be glad that Joan Jett is still around to rock our world today. What do you think of Joan Jett plastic surgery rumors? Let us know in the comments box below.

Taylor Swift Plastic Surgery Before and After Photos – Boob Job?

Did Taylor Swift Undergo Plastic Surgery?

Like the saying goes, Rome wasn’t built in a day, but boobs can be built in two weeks! Lately, Taylor Swift has been the subject of much plastic surgery speculations. The famous American singer has surprised many when she appeared to have much bigger boobs. Well, unless she is having a second puberty growth spurt.. but at age 27, that is very unlikely. Known to embed her private life stories into her songs, there is still no hint of any boob job in her songs. So, that keeps all her fans guessing.

No article about Taylor Swift is complete without a complete analysis of her career and the changes over the years. Many times, after analysing the before and after photos, the changes in a celebrity’s face or body could just be due to heavy makeup or that “SUPER TECH” push up bra. Let’s turn back the clock and witness the changes in Taylor Swift over the years.

The Early Life of Taylor Swift

Taylor Swift expressed major interest in music since the age of 9. While others are busy with academic exams, she took up vocal and acting lessons. Despite her failed demo submissions to various record labels, Taylor Swift was relentless to pursue her dreams. She had the full support of her parents and eventually got signed by the Sony/ATV Tree Publishing house.

Here is a picture of her in 1994, wearing the in-thing during the 1990s – Zipped Up Turtle Necks!

At a young age, Taylor Swift was already writing songs for other singers. Who would have expected this young girl to blossom into one of the biggest stars today?

Taylor Swift in the 2000s – Our Song and Should’ve Said No

in the 2000s, Taylor Swift had the attention of the Billboard Hot Country Songs Chart. Two of her most successful single at that time, Our Song and Should’ve Said No, reached the number one spot on the charts. Here she is in 2006, looking youthful and fresh faced. Not much makeup around the eyes, but her trademark flowing long hair is evident.

Taylor Swift 2007 – More Recognition For Her Country Music

This was the year when Taylor Swift got more recognition in the music industry. Its about time anyway.

Still aged 18, she became the youngest person to be honored with Nashville Songwriters Association’s Artist of the Year.She also won the Top New Female Vocalist from the Academy of Country Music Awards, and the Favorite Country Female Artist at the American Music Awards.

Here she is at the CMT Music Awards in 2007. This time, she took more effort to put on more makeup to smoothen out the edges or her nose. And those eyelashes, well curled up and looking more alluring. Check out her signature gaze:

Taylor Swift 2008 – Fearless and Her Acting Debut in 2009 CSI: Crime Scene Investigation

Her next album built up some monstrous momentum. The album Fearless went on to top the Billboard 200 and became the best selling album in 2009. Her Music Viceo “You Belong With Me” won the Best Female Video at the MTV Video Music Award. You got to watch this video:

Wow, the energy that Taylor Swift had in the video is just unbelievable. Here is a shot of Taylor Swiftin the 2008 CMT Music Awards:

In this photo she is starting to realise the power of her eyes. The seductive effects of eyeliners are put into great use here. Her clever use of the lipstick creates the illusion of plumper lips. There is zero signs of plastic surgery here. After all, she is only aged 19. Notice that her cleavage is still not showing despite wearing a low cut dress.

Taylor Swift in 2009

In 2009, Taylor Swift had her first taste of acting when she played the role of a rebellious teenager in CSI: Crime Scene Investigation.

Here is a picture of Taylor Swift in 2009 at the 57th Annual BMI Country Awards, looking smooth and pretty with her trademark wavy long locks.

Taylor Swift has mastered the art of eye makeup. Her arching eyebrows and that “squinty” gaze is fast becoming her hallmark expression.

Taylor Swift in 2010

In 2010, Taylor Swift decided its about time for a change. Her appearance at the American Music Awards was truly different. With her hair covering the forehead, she looked every bit like the girl-next-door with a tinge of playfulness within. Her “ironed out” long tresses also spices up her looks. Again, the stand out features are her eyes, though now she appears to have some eye bags. Still a very pretty Taylor Swift:

Taylor Swift in 2011

In 2011, Taylor Swift grossed over $123 million for her Speak Now World Tour. But the apparent success of her tour did not change her appearance much. Other than keeping her hair short, Taylor Swift decides to go for the bright red lipstick. Somehow, her lips look slightly deflated this time. The short hair created a broader face, not the best combination in our opinion. But nonetheless, she is Taylor Swift – and she is still a beauty to behold!

Watch Taylor Swift in an interview on the Ellen Show in 2011:

Compare that to a recent interview where Taylor Swift answered 73 questions:

 

Taylor Swift in 2012

In 2012, Taylor Swift broke the Guinness Book of Records by being the first female artist to have two million-selling album openings. But Taylor Swift decided to go back to her long silky smooth look. She has not made any significant changes to her looks. Her boobs are still are not that significantly big yet.

Taylor Swift in 2013

In 2013, Taylor Swift won the Best Female Video at the MTV Video Music Awards for the single “ I Knew You Were Trouble”. And still, with her fast rising popularity and fame, the ultra talented Taylor Swift remained true to her real looks and kept to her traditional style of light makeup and curled eyelashes. In the photo below she arrives at the “One Chance” Premiere:

Taylor Swift in 2014 – “Shake It Off”, “Blank Space” and “Bad Blood”

In 2014, we see Taylor Swift releasing one her most successful albums to date. Her Album 1989, spawned three Number one singles “Shake It Off”, “Blank Space” and “Bad Blood”. For her superb achievements in 2014, Taylor Swift was named Billboard’s Woman of the Year in 2014. Here she is attending the “Charles James: Beyond Fashion” Costume Institute Gala:

In this photo, Taylor Swift stuck to her proven formula, except for the rare bright red lipstick. And those mesmerising eyes look incredible. But you can see what a good dress can do – it pushed Taylor Swift’s boobs up – creating an upper outline of her “round” boobs.

In her 2014 Video for Blank Space, you can see Taylor Swift flaunting her boobs in some parts of the video. But it is still not clear if her boob size increase is due to her dress or a boob job.

Taylor Swift in 2015

In March 2015, Taylor Swift made headlines when she dated Scottish DJ and record producer Calvin Harris. Though the relationship was declared over in June 2016, Calvin Harris’ expression at the Billboard Music Awards is worth noting. Check out the photos below:

This is the first time since that “round” boobs shot in 2014 where Taylor Swift’s cleavage shows up. And her cleavage shows up “deep” time! She looked surprised in the photo below and perhaps her fans are surprised too!

Taylor Swift 2016 – Boobs back to the same size now?

In 2016, Taylor Swift appears to thwart all the boob job rumors – by appearing without seemingly enlarged boobs. In the photo below, Taylor Swift attends the 64th Annual BMI Pop Awards wearing a spaghetti strap dress. She shows off a slight upper outline of her upper boob. But such “cleavage” can be created easily with a push up bra.

Overall, those boob job rumors about Taylor Swift seems to be just plain rumors. Perhaps Taylor Swift just found a wear to make her boobs appear bigger, that’s all. Furthermore, with Taylor Swift’s naturally skinny frame, its hard to max out the size of her boobs as it will create an unbalanced look. Other than her boobs, her facial features look very much natural. What is more important is to look forward to more hit songs from Taylor Swift. What do you think of Taylor Swift plastic surgery rumors? Boob job or no?

Kylie Minogue Plastic Surgery Before and After Photos

Did Kylie Minogue Undergo Plastic Surgery?

Kylie Minogue is recognised as the best selling Australian artist of all time. Her career, spanning almost four decades, has been nothing short of unbelievable. Her ability to retain her youthful looks has led to Kylie Minogue plastic surgery speculations. One major speculation is her use of Botox.

Kylie Minogue Concerned About Aging

Kylie Minogue has expressed concerns about the effect of gravity on her aging face. She once said in DailyMail in 2012,  ‘I am not going to lie about this. There are lots of times I look in the mirror and I see that gravity has taken hold. Or suddenly see my face on a phone or on Skype and it’s like a Spielberg special effect and you just scream, “Who is that?” ‘

She continued,‘I am not against surgery, I haven’t gone down that route yet, I don’t know whether I will but I am not against it. The only time it isn’t amazing is when it’s not done well or someone takes it too far.’

“I look at someone like Jane Fonda. I am a super-fan of hers. She doesn’t apologise (about her surgery) and she shouldn’t have to. We put make-up on every day, we tint, pluck, wax, we do anything to make ourselves look as good as we can and I think it’s pointless being hypocritical about something that if it’s done well can be really good’.”

Watch Kylie Minogue in an interview back in 2000. Her body figure was perfect when she performed in the Olympics:

Compare that to a recent appearance on The Jonathan Ross Show. This is FUNNY:

So, looks like Kylie is not really against plastic surgery when its done in good taste. Given her worldwide fame, it is not surprising that her facial changes will spark rumors. One way to determine if Kylie Minogue has undergone cosmetic surgery is to look at her changes over the years. Let’s go!

Kylie Minogue Early Years (1986—1989)  Charlene Robinson in “Neighbours”

Anyway, since we are talking about Kylie Minogue, we might as well go into the time machine and enjoy her past glories. The soap opera, Neighbours, was what catapulted Kylie Minogue to fame. Her onscreen romance with Jason Donovan – and that video “Especially For You” – created a connection with her fans for years to come.

Want to relive those episodes of Neighbours? Well, here’s one for you:

And here are some shots of Young Kylie Minogue, one with Jason Donovan. Obviously, botox was not necessary then:

Kylie had loads of natural beauty and that is more than enough. Those fizzy long hair was a trademark in the 1980s. Kylie Minogue had that cute girl charm since the beginning of her career.

Kylie Minogue – Locomotion and I Should Be So Lucky

Though Kylie quickly achieved fame in Neighbours, she wanted to have a go at singing. Her first single, The Locomotion, stayed at the Number One spot on the Australian singles chart for an amazing 7 weeks.

Want to know why? Well, start dancing and check out the catchy tune below:

“The Locomotion” single went on to win the ARIA award for the best selling single for that year. Her followup song “ I Should Be So Lucky” won the next ARIA award for the best selling single too. Here is a video of Kylie in I Should Be So Lucky. Her talent for singing is beyond doubt. Soon, Kylie Minogue made the decision to focus more on her music.

Watch a young Kylie Minogue in “I Should Be So Lucky”. Observe her facial expressions while singing. She was so expressive. Will convert you into a fan immediately.

Kylie Minogue – 1990-1992 – Let’s Get To It

This is the period in Kylie’s career where many people assumed that she was influenced by her relationship with Michael Hutchence, the leader of group INXS. “Let’s Get To It” did not go as well as expected. It did not sell well and failed to hit the top ten album sales in UK.

But Kylie still kept her spirits up.

Check out her picture shot in 1990 and she still retains the charm. And obviously there is no work done on her face:

Kylie Minogue 1993-1998 Her Self Titled Album and Impossible Princess

Kylie Minogue’s self titled album proved to be a best seller. It did well in Europe and Australia. Her sixth album Impossible Princess went on to do well in Australia.

Due to her natural slim figure, Kylie Minogue did not really need to do much to look beautiful. Her natural enthusiasm made up for any area that was lacking. By 1998, she was in her early 30s, still looking amazingly beautiful.

Here is a photo showing Kylie Minogue in her launch for Impossible Princess:

Kylie Minogue 1999-2004 – Light Years and Sydney Olympics

Kylie Minogue remained focused on her music career. Her seventh album Light Years spawned a number one hit “Spinning Around” in UK. She went on to perform in the Sydney Olympics closing ceremony. Here, she is pictured attending the MTV European Music Awards in 2004:

You can say that Kylie is truly resistant to aging. At this point, she is 36 years old and looked as good as when she was 20 years old.

Kylie Minogue 2008 Brit Awards – Where The Botox Signs Started

It is about this time when photos of Kylie Minogue started to arouse plastic surgery speculations. In her appearance for the 2008 Brit Awards, her facial expression looked slightly “distorted”. Her cheeks looked artificially lifted and there was some “lump” in the upper area of her nose bridge. Check out this picture at the 2008 Brit Awards:

Kylie Minogue did admit to using botox and vowed not to touch it again. With her slightly weird looks. Botox experimentation is possible.

Kylie Minogue 2010 Brit Awards – Face Going Back to Normal

Kylie continued to have success in the UK. Her eleventh album Aphrodite debuted at Number 1 in UK and the single “All The Lovers” was a top ten hit in United Kingdom. Some of her other hits like Get Outta My Way, Better Than Today and Put Your Hands Up did not do so well but still made an impact in the US Billboard Hot Dance Club Songs Chart.

Here is Kylie Minogue attending the 2010 Brit Awards with her wide smile:

This time, her face looked more normal than in 2008. The unnatural nose bridge seemed to be fading away. There was still some stiffness in her smile though. But overall, Kylie Minogue has maintained her complexion extremely well. Check out her neck area which has perfect complexion despite being at age 42.

Kylie Minogue 2011 Munich Olympic Walk of Stars

Just when you though the effects of Botox is wearing away, Kylie appears in the Munich Olympic Walk of Stars event with a plumper face. It is hard to tell if its due to weight gain or facial fillers. What do you think? Check out the photo below:

Kylie Minogue 2012 – Looking More Natural Again

2012 marks the point where Kylie Minogue looks all natural again. Gone is the lumpiness on her upper nose. Her cheeks do not look puffed up anymore. What triggered the differences?

Seems like Kylie is truly staying away from plastic surgery from now on. Here is Kylie Minogue at the 2012 Gq Men of The Year Awards At the Royal Opera House:

Well, what do we see here? Natural looking cheeks, brighter smile, no more swollen upper nose. And probably, no more Botox.

Kylie Minogue in 2013 – Departure From Apparent Botox Effects

In 2013, Kylie Minogue split with her manager Terry Blamey who was with her since the beginning. At the same time, her appearances also show an apparent split with Botox and facial fillers. In the MTV Movie Awards in 2013, Kylie appeared free of any plastic surgery. Yes, she does look slightly more mature, but at least she looks like herself!

Check out the photo below and you will see a natural Kylie again:

Kylie Minogue 2014 – Kiss Me Once – Another Major Success

In 2014, the success Kylie Minogue have had over the years continued. Her Kiss Me Once album went to the Number One spot in Australia and number two in UK. She continued to look better and better in 2014. In the 2014 Logie Awards, she appeared all natural once again, without any lumpy appearance. And how did she preserve her neck skin so well?

Kylie Minogue 2015 – Looking her Best Again

In January 2015, other than scoring another Number One hit on the US Dance Chart with the track “The Other Boys”, Kylie appears to score maximum points for her natural looking appearance. And seriously, it is hard to find a finer example of someone who can recover from a poor bout of facial fillers or botox. Some say botched botox injections and facial fillers has no chance of recovery. Perhaps Kylie Minogue has proven otherwise.

Her appearance at the Qantas Australia Day Gala Dinner at Australia House shows her in her usual beautiful self. There is absolutely no signs of plastic surgery on her now. It proves that Kylie has stayed away from Botox since her admission to Elle Magazine back in 2009.

Kylie Minogue 2016 – Appearing at Brit Awards 2016

Despite Kylie Minogue’s busy schedule in 2016, she continued to forge partnerships with other artistes. In September 2016, she revealed that she will be working with Robbie Williams on a future album. Though busy, one thing is for sure, Kylie Minogue has found a way to battle aging effectively. Only she knows the secret as the photo below shows Kylie Minogue looking youthful and young:

Kylie Minogue at the 2016 Brit Awards looking bright and chirpy. Her taste of fashion is demonstrated in the photo. Her black hat and her black dress forms and absolute match. Her flawless facial skin and neck shows that Kylie has done a great job keeping herself young.

So, to summarise, Kylie Minogue still look superb today. Thankfully, she did not overdose on botox or facial fillers. When things started to turn excessive, she knew how to turn back. She is a shining example for all celebrities to follow.

Just so that we can see the changes in her, let’s put the images of her early days to her image in 2008:

Her work ethic, followed by an innate tenacity, enable her to dominate the US Dance Charts with each release of her album. For what she has been through (her recovery from cancer), it is amazing to see her have such an amazing zeal about life. We look forward to more great music from Kylie Minogue. What do you think of Kylie Minogue plastic surgery rumors? Is she still undergoing botox injections or has she stopped?
