Nicki Minaj is not happy about her upcoming ESPN The Magazine cover photo and the rapper was not shy about voicing her opinion on Instagram this week.

Minaj and Kobe Bryant appear on the cover of ESPN's Feb. 3 music issue and the "Starships" singer is accusing the magazine of Photoshopping the image. She took to Instagram Thursday to call the publication out.

"When retouching goes wrong," Minaj captioned the photo.

"I love my personal unretouched photos where my forehead doesn't mysteriously grow in length," she wrote along with another picture.

ESPN The Magazine declined to comment on Minaj's accusation, but if the cover photo was indeed digitally manipulated, it wasn’t as blatant as some other recent Photoshop flubs.

In August 2013, critics slammed actress Claire Danes' Vogue cover.

"Does anyone else see something fishy going on with Danes' right leg?" The Huffington Post posited. "We're not quite sure where it went. Of course, it very well could be her leg positioning combined with the folds of her flowing gown that's making it 'disappear,' but we wouldn't be surprised if overzealous retouching was the culprit."

But singer Adele's March 2012 Vogue cover was perhaps the most flagrant instance of a Photoshopped magazine cover.
