I don’t think that he would do something like that, when he is singing to love ourselves. That would be a lie and then he would make other fans to make plastic surgery. No. Just no.”
Another follower said:
“Yes and no. I wouldn’t call is PS. He had a operation to help him breath better. Everyone who did not understand the situation said he had a nose job but thats not the case. PS is more then changing your face or body just for cosmic purposes. PS is used for various health concerns which most don’t understand.”
