Cardi B’s photo should be in the dictionary next to the term "open book." The rapper, who gave birth to daughter Kulture nine months ago, has never been one to hold back from speaking about her experiences with cosmetic surgery.
After revealing that she’d had her breast augmentation redone post-baby in an interview with Entertainment Tonight just last week, Cardi opened up about another procedure yesterday during a performance at the Beale Street Music Festival in Memphis. Between songs, the star paused to let fans know that she recently got liposuction.
"Let me tell y’all something. I shouldn’t really be performing," she says. "I should have canceled today because moving too much is gonna fuck up my lipo. But bitch, I’m still gonna get this money bag."
Fans cheered Cardi on as she proceeded to perform following her announcement, which also comes after she walked the carpet at the 2019 Billboard Music Awards on Sunday in a two-piece set that showed off her abdominal area. The recovery process for most body liposuction procedures can vary depending on the individual, but experts say that bruising can last or exceed two weeks and a compression garment is required for six weeks after the surgery.
While Cardi didn’t confirm the exact timing of her recent procedure, we hope the rapper finds the time she needs to let her body heal while still securing her bag — but that probably won’t happen until after she slays the Met Gala red carpet tonight.
