The rapper was open about how she decided to get her figure back after giving birth. She decided to go under the knife.

I have some news for y’all,” she announced on stage at the Beale Street Music Festival. “I should have canceled today. I shouldn’t really be performing because moving too much is gonna f*ck up my lipo. But b*tch I’m still gonna get my motherf*cking money back, let’s go!”

She later talked about why she revealed that she had surgery. “It was important for me to share,” she told Entertainment Tonight. “A lot of people were egging me on to do it, even though I was going to do it because I really want to explain to people how hard the process is.”

The new mom continued, “I feel like a lot of people look at girls on Instagram and they are like, ‘oh they got their lipo done and it was so easy.’ But, it’s just such a long, hard process. It’s almost like the same process as after you give birth to a baby and you see your body change and snapping it back. It’s the same way.”

She canceled shows to recover from getting work done

The rapper tried getting back to work as soon as possible. However, she ended up canceling shows to give herself more time to recover from surgery.

I hate canceling shows because I love money,” she said on Instagram live according to Page Six. “I’m a money addict, and I get paid a lot of money, a lot of money for these shows. A lot of money. I’m canceling millions of dollars in shows, but like, health is wealth so I have to do what I have to do.”

Her publicist also talked to the publication about the cancellations saying “she didn’t take the time necessary to fully recover. Her strenuous schedule has taken a toll on her body and now has been given strict doctors orders to pull out the rest of her performances in May.”

Cardi B went on Instagram live to talk about her choice to get surgery after giving birth.

“[People tell me], ‘You lazy, you should just work out,'” she said according to Page Six. “I do whatever the f*ck I want to do with my body. 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, [will] not get fixed.”

Cardi B revealed that timing and more went into her decision to get liposuction. She also reminded critics that she can do whatever she wants with her body. It’s unknown when she’ll be done recovering to return to performing.
