'I never had surgery on my face,' insists Nicki Minaj... but remains silent on booty implant rumours
She's been accused of having had a nose job, among other surgeries.
But Nicki Minaj has shot back at critics, crediting makeup for her contoured appearance.
The 30-year-old singer denied ever having a scalpel touch her face during an interview Thursday on Extra, but she made no mention about her purported 'booty' implants.
'I never had surgery on my face,' said the American Idol judge. 'When people see my makeup they think all types of crazy things that I'm doing to my skin, but it's makeup.'

It's just make-up, promise! The singer credited makeup for her contoured features and right, before she was famous
The MAC Viva Glam spokesperson was promoting her new lipstick for the makeup brand, a lavender-hue called Nicki 2.
Nicki, who wore the lipstick during the interview, credited her deft hand with a makeup brush for her defined features, adamantly denying that she's had any work done to her face.
'They'll see contour and think you've had surgery on your nose. It's makeup people!' the star told Extra.
She cited the television show RuPaul's Drag Race as an example of what makeup can do.
'Look at RuPaul’s Drag Race and you’ll see how you can make your nose look any shape you want,' she said.
The star has also been accused of having implants to make her bottom more curvaceous, but she remained mum about those rumours during the interview, emphatically referring only to her face.

Is that real? The star, pictured in February, is said to have had 'booty' implants
While chatting about her latest lipstick collaboration with MAC, the Pink Friday singer said she's toned down her look this year.
'It's a bit more grown and sexy and like... less is more,' said Nicki.
When asked if she's ever had a 'non-glam' day, the Trinidadian-born singer answered 'of course,' stating that she looks like 'hell' on those days.

Nicki was also asked whether she believed she would win a sing-off with her fellow American Idol judge Mariah Carey. The star declared that she would come out on top - but not due to her vocal chops.
'Oh, I wouldn't sing,' she said. 'I would just stand there and flash my boobs.'
