Leave it to Nicki Minaj to be the Photoshop Police.

The "Pound the Alarm" singer took to her Instagram page to lambast ESPN magazine for digitally retouching her face on their Feb. 2014 Music issue.

On Thursday, the former "American Idol" judge wrote on Instagram, "When retouching goes wrong" next to a photo of the cover in question, which shows the controversial star sitting on a speaker with her hands on basketball star's Kobe Bryant's shoulders.

After posting the offending cover, the 31-year-old went on to add unretouched photos from the shoot, one which had the caption "I love my personal unretouched photos where my forehead doesn't mysteriously grow in length." Burn!

Although Minaj didn't post an unretouched photo of the cover shot, it does kind of look as if the photo editors lengthened her forehead, but to what extent, we can't tell.

What we do know is that Nicki looks flawless without any airbrushing!

This is one of the few times where celebrities have actually called out a magazine for altering their photos. In recent months, several celebs including Lena Dunham and Mindy Kaling have gone on the defensive after critics said their respective magazine covers Photoshopped their photos too much.

What do you think? Did ESPN magazine Photoshop Nicki Minaj?

Here are the unretouched photos:

Overzealous airbrushing much?
