Hot Shots: Lil Kim Glows In Paris After Axing Essence Festival Performance

Published: Monday 4th Jul 2016 by Sam

Lil Kim left fans reeling in New Orleans over the weekend when she cancelled her performance at the 2016 Essence Music Festival at the last minute.

The excuse provided?

According to a rep, the rapper could not take to the stage with Puff Daddy and the Bad Boy family as planned due to “unfulfilled business obligations.”

Folk scratched their heads as to what that was supposed to mean. Yet, now, it seems the answer may have manifested.

The pint-sized femcee was snapped looking all sorts of glam at the Ralph & Russo fashion show today in Paris. Only 24 hours after the axed performance.

As well as posing it up with the designers, she also pow-wowed with supermodel Jourdan Dunn.

Peep more pics below…

Fans of Kimberly needn’t fret too much; she’s still set tour with Puffy and co on the Bad Boy reunion tour this summer.

    Kim is such a fashion icon !

    • LIL’ KIM BIRTHED YO FAVES July 4, 2016

      21 years later and the Queen of Rap Lil’ Kim is still being invited to sit front row at fashion shows. When that bum biaatch H0nika said that Kim was washed up, she thought her words had power. Well, you can’t bury the real queen. Lil’ Kim is here to stay!

    I see no glow here we are so tired about that mufasa’s face we already see that in king of lion Disney movie. Damn I dont want to be shady but this chirurgy face is a habit everybody bought the same exausted face with so much plastic and botox that mean you cant have expressions on your face on cant move lips guess what she is happy with that face you can buy that s*** the only difference is the ski ton lol

    • kwinzy July 4, 2016

    • LIL’ KIM BIRTHED YO FAVES July 4, 2016

      You’re just mad because nobody invited Oinknika. While the Queen of Rap was sitting front row at the Paris Couture Week with the fashion industry’s heavy hitters, Oinknika was looking like a tramp at the MMG weekend. SEETHE BIIIITTCH!!!

    • July 4, 2016

      i an’t a fan of Kim like that, but i would be lying if i said she didn’t look nice here.

  4. Weezy Tha Goat/ Zayn is ? July 4, 2016

    I didn’t realize how short Kim was. This is probably the best she’s ever looked, I’ve come to the realization that she won’t ever look like she did when I was a kid.

    • What you say boy!? July 4, 2016

      ?Yes she looks beautiful here. Let’s just oppreciate that she is still alive. Let’s love are greats while they are alive! I will always miss the way she looked – but I love her now! To quote drake “if I loved you once I’ll always love you.” I believe it just took a minute for her face to settle in. And I think the Botox has warn off. She looks natural and
      Happy! I see you Kim ???

    Queen B!!

    Skipped out on a Black event for a White one. How sad?

    • OMG Logic!!! July 4, 2016

      Fashion is not a White event. Fashion is for everyone.

    • Lea July 4, 2016

      White event? The ignorance!

  8. LB July 4, 2016

    It’s sad she doesn’t get the respect she deserves for her contributions to fashion. She reigns in that era, she looks good here.

    • kwinzy July 4, 2016

      That fact she’s the most copied fashion and swag wise says a lot! Even her nemesis K. Flopchelle bit her look in a photoshoot recently.

    • LIL’ KIM BIRTHED YO FAVES July 4, 2016

      Exactly! The Queen Bee stays inspiring these swaggerless h0es. Oinknika wouldn’t know what to wear without looking at the Queen Bee’s photos. Lil’ Kim is still THAT BIIIITTCCH!!!

  9. Indie July 4, 2016

    Kim has been looking great lately! 🙂

  10. The Kpop Guy, Matt~ July 4, 2016

    I feel for her.

    • OMG Logic!!! July 4, 2016

      Don’t expect the hypocrites on here to understand another person’s culture.

  11. StanPolice July 4, 2016

    But what if that “obligation” was that she wasn’t getting paid the rate negotiated, etc. There could be all kinds of business legalities that stop a person from performing. BTW Kim actually looks good here. Good to see her pulling herself together,

    • LIL’ KIM BIRTHED YO FAVES July 4, 2016

      Kim was paid several millions to perform in a private concert in Paris, France. Why would she turn it down. The Queen Bee stays collecting them checks!

      • #JACKIE July 4, 2016

        But her house is in foreclosure…hmmm?

  12. IG : @mixedboy July 4, 2016

    Wow QUEEN BEE looks amazing. #SLAY

  13. OMG Logic!!! July 4, 2016

    The haters need to stop. She finally got a plastic surgeon that made her look good. Now people need to let her feel comfortable with herself instead of judging her for not being the acceptable shade of skin.

    And no, there was nothing wrong with 1996 Kim. She was a s*** little diva, but she wasn’t happy with herself. If she’s happy now, people need to let her be.

    • LIL’ KIM BIRTHED YO FAVES July 4, 2016

      She always looked good. The problem was always with her choice of makeup. When she gets a good makeup artist, she looks amazing. When she gets a bad artist, they make her face look weird.

  14. LOL July 4, 2016


  15. Badone July 4, 2016

    Beautiful woman

  16. FC/JC July 4, 2016

    She looks pretty here, i hope she keeps this make-up & wig stylist around.

  17. Ace July 4, 2016

    She looks good.touring fashion shows new cd coming out.meanwhile nicki latest features without safaree sound basic and straight up trash.onika gotta show ass to get doing it with class and killing it.nobody really talking bout nicki no more.shes fading away .

    • LIL’ KIM BIRTHED YO FAVES July 4, 2016

      Karma is a phuckking bitttcch. Oinknika will get hers. It doesn’t matter how much she thinks she’s winning, karma will still take a chunk out of her plastic azzz when it is ready. Oinknika has so much karma coming to her. It’s not even funny.

      Lil’ Kim has a good spirit and that’s why she has managed to maintain longevity in this very fickle business. That’s why she is a legend. She shows love and doesn’t hate people. She only attacks those who attack her first. And when it comes down to it, she is always ready to forgive. That’s why she is cool with Remy now. Oinknika has an ugly spirit. That’s why her end will not be great.

      • Danzou July 5, 2016

        Please shut up. Lil Him was picking onnicki FIRST. That’s why she got deaded. Nicki isn’t going anywhere any time soon. Kim is done. I like ha but she’s DONE. She’s only booking stages on SOMEONE ELSE’S TOUR. She had to sell an album on PAYPAL. SHE’S DONE.

      • LIL’ KIM BIRTHED YO FAVES July 5, 2016

        You dumbazzz biiittch. Oinknika was bussing shots at Kim since 2003, when she was trying to get her foot in the industry and Kim had the game ON LOCK. Do your research. She couldn’t make it in the industry by herself, so she decided to jack Lil’ Kim’s swag, and that’s how she got in. Oinknika will always be a bum bitttchh.

        You dummies keep saying “Kim is done,” but she’s STILL outchea moving. Cooking and baking. Moving and shaking. Kim is HEADLINING that Bad Boy tour. How is she on someone else’s tour. She is an important part of BAD BOY. She is the reason people are buying tickets. Again, the Queen of Rap is HEADLINING the Bad Boy tour. The PayPal shade is expired. Kim never sold an album on PayPal. She sold a mixtape on PayPal. Oinknika sold her mixtape on PayPal, so your shade is dismissed biiittch.

  18. Coolness July 5, 2016

    She looks good here. Her outfit is giving me “Oh, I was getting ready in my boudoir and trying to figure out what to wear but couldn’t so Imma show up in lingerie and a coat/dressing gown.” LOL! That pink is really flattering. Like someone mentioned earlier, Kim is never going to look like she did circa 1999 – 2001 but she’s still here. That’s all that matters.

  19. ow Reddish tran ivy blokz Need UK timely Ukuyi July 5, 2016

    Kimberly Jones looks wonderful

  20. Danzou July 5, 2016

    Here goes this delusional ass lil HIM Stan again. When’s the last time kim sold out a world tour? When is the last time kim sold an album at all let alone on PayPal? I honestly feel like that account is TRYING to get ha dragged. Kim is DONE. Lil him has nothing to her name. No clothes no liqueur no nothing. That’s why her net worth is only coming from biggie estate. I like ha be she’s DONE.

    • LIL’ KIM BIRTHED YO FAVES July 5, 2016

      Oinknika never sold out a world tour. Her seats were empty and she had to sell tickets on Groupon to fill seats in the United States. That’s a FLOP. On the other hand, Lil’ Kim is headlining the Bad Boy tour and she is the reason that people are buying tickets. Lil’ Kim has been killing the game in 2016. Headlining the Bad Boy Tour, front row at Paris Couture Week, being honored as a legend at the VH1 Honors…and she hasn’t even started yet. You think the Queen can get invited to sit front row at Paris Couture Week and be friends with Marc Jacobs and can’t get a clothing line? Watch out! Meanwhile, your flea market fave Oinknika is slinging her garments at K-Mart. Now that’s what you call a bum biiittch. Oinknika is DONE. No more Safaree to write hot verses. She’s OVER!

      • Danzou July 5, 2016

        it’s better for an artists to sell TICKETS ON GROUPON THAN AN ALBUM YOU IDIOT.

  21. Kwinzy July 5, 2016

    Yas bury those barbz. Rest in Delusional Peace bishes.
