Since their emergence on the hip-hop scene, Sandra ‘Pepa’ Denton has been known as one of the strong figures who challenged the status quo for women in the music industry.

Despite her popularity, her recent social media selfies have placed many music fans in a fix in their attempt to come to terms with her new look. In one of the viral images, the 57-year-old had a blurred glow concealing her natural features, according to Daily Mail.

Fans were puzzled by Denton’s selfie, which showcased a face with seemingly flawless makeup with thick eyeliner and pink lips.

Fans were speculating whether the look was a result of potential airbrushing or editing, while others attributed the surprising appearance to her makeup style.

“Too many filters… smh. You can barely see her nose,” commented one.

“They almost blurred her nose completely out of the picture. She’s beautiful but y’all getting crazy with the editing!’ wrote another.”

Despite the criticism, some fans praised her ageless young look.

“You look absolutely amazing,” gushed one, while another wrote, “Beautiful picture, you still look the same.”

Denton, who is renowned for her glamorous persona, has been in the news for many of the plastic surgeries she has done to enhance her look. In 2020, she brought a lawsuit against a Beverly Hills surgeon for multiple operations on her backside due to damage from a car crash.

Speculation is rife that she might have had a possible nose job, though unconfirmed by Denton herself.

As one half of Salt-N-Pepa, pioneers in female hip-hop during the ‘80s and ‘90s, her influence remains significant. Salt-N-Pepa’s 1987 single “Push It” catapulted them to superstardom, establishing them as household names worldwide.

Salt-N-Pepa remained influential throughout the ‘90s with hits like “Shoop,” “Whatta Man,” and “Gitty Up.” Their success garnered a Grammy Award for Best Rap Performance in 1995 and the prestigious Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award in 2021.

However, in 2019, Cheryl ‘Salt’ James made headlines by revealing the band’s discomfort with their 1987 hit “Push It,” citing confusion over its sexual lyrics.

“We literally laughed in the studio, like: ‘All we need to say is ‘ooh, baby, baby’? OK, dude, whatever,”’ said James.
