Angel Lola Luv, Amber Rose and now Nicki Minaj have flooded the music industry with their bodacious curves. The new millennium brickhouses are feeding the cravings of their male fans, proving the theory bigger must be better.

VIBE, HoneyMag.com, XXL and Complex are samples of the covers graced with their lovely, lady lumps. With off the richter sex appeal,  these women have sparked debates on the authenticity of their curves.

Recently, comparisons of Nicki Minaj’s shapely frame have surfaced. Pictures displaying a less-endowed Nicki insinuate alterations have definitely occurred. Drawing attention to Nicki Minaj’s backside, the questions exists is it a booty pad, injections, or pure body fat?

Well here’s another inquiry: why should anyone care?

Is this the day and age where body composition exceeds talent? Will Nicki Minaj be more or less of an artist if she did alter the junk in her trunk?

Debate on the authenticity of female artists’ curves leads to the decade-old discussion of the double standard. When David Banner and Timbaland stepped onto the scene with newly chiseled bodies, congratulations and excitement appeared to be the response. However, even when Beyoncé toned up her frame, scrutiny fell into the category as to whether she was eating enough.

The female body is often objectified in the entertainment industry by men and women. Is that the cost one must pay  as a mainstream artist? Unfortunately, constant scrutiny comes with the territory.

However does it appear that women are judged on superficial standards? Or has the world become a superficial society overall?

There are hundreds of answers to such questions; let us know what you think!
