The Reason Cardi B Got Liposuction

In the world of Kim Kardashians and Jennifer Lopezes, being voluptuous is something many women strive for. Especially, if you are in the public eye.

For women in the hip hop and rap scenes, having a big butt and small waist pretty much goes with the territory. But even if you are born with an amazing body, keeping it up can be extremely stressful.

Rapper Cardi B is known for her wild lyrics and stellar body, but after giving birth, she decided that she needed to do a little extra to keep things tight.

Cardi B reveals she got liposuction

Last week, the rapper admitted that after giving birth to her daughter Kulture, she had liposuction.

“I have some news for y’all,” she said on stage at the Beale Street Music Festival, according to People. “I should have canceled today. I shouldn’t really be performing because moving too much is gonna f— up my lipo. But bitch I’m still gonna get my motherf—ing money back, let’s go!”

Why did Cardi B get liposuction?

After giving birth, the rapper was finding it hard to bounce back to her former size, which made her consider having liposuction done.

“I still feel like I got a lot of love handles right here,” she said, touching her stomach. “It’s not much but it’s like — I’m used to having, like, a real tight stomach … I might just get a little lipo, you know what I’m sayin’?”

Why did Cardi B reveal that she got liposuction?

For months, whenever the question would come up, the rapper denied having the procedure done. In October, she took to her Instagram story to shut down rumors.

“I never did lipo, bro. Never,” she said on the social media outlet.

But, eventually she had a change of heart and decided to be open about it.

“It was important for me because I don’t like lying about things,” she told E! News at the launch of her new Fashion Nova line.

She also wanted to shed some light on the process.

“It was important for me to share,” she recently 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. 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.”

Will Cardi B reveal more about her liposuction journey?

Since opening up about getting liposuction, Cardi has tried to share as much about the process as possible to help people know what the procedure is really like.

When asked if she would make a documentary about her journey, she didn’t shut down the idea.

“I should start filming it,” she told the outlet. “I should start filming the process. Cause it’s crazy.”
