Cardi B has been extremely open about her plastic surgeries, most recently her decision to get liposuction.
Of course, this has prompted the trolls of the world to voice their very rude opinions about Cardi, her body, and her life choices.
According to Cardi, haters told her to just “work out” instead of getting lipo.
Cardi was having none of it and took to Instagram Live. She told her fans,
“Listen, I do whatever the fuck I want to do with my body. Let me tell you something, bitch. I don’t have the time of day like you do. Like, my job as an entertainer is a 24-hour job, bro. So no, I don’t have time to work out and I wanted specific things that I know that no matter how much I work out ― is not get fixed. Like my boobs, no matter how much I work out, they were not gonna lift themselves. So yeah, I had to get fucking surgery.”
Cardi has every right to do with her body as she likes and it’s absolutely nobody else’s business.
Of course, as a body positive feminist, I wish, for Cardi’s sake, she could be happy with the body she’s in. But if getting plastic surgery makes her feel more confident, then I totally support her decision. Every woman — and person — has the right to do with their bodies as they please.
Since getting her latest surgery, Cardi has had to cancel a few of her shows, much to everyone’s disappointment (including her own). But her doctor recommended she take time off to let her body heal, which it desperately needed to do.
Cardi told ET Online back in May,
“It is just such a long, hard process, almost like the same process as after you give birth to a baby and you see your body change and snapping it back.”
The whole ordeal has been so hard for her that she even joked on Twitter that “she ain’t never getting surgery again.”
As she waits to return to performing, Cardi has been busy rehearsing, working out, and planning for her daughter Kulture’s first birthday.
