During a recent performance at the Beale Street Music Festival, rapper Cardi B revealed to fans that she had recently gotten liposuction.
“I shouldn’t really be performing,” Cardi told the crowd. “I should’ve canceled today because moving too much is gonna f**k up my lipo. But b**ch, I’m still gonna get this mother f**king money back, let’s go!”
Cardi talked some more about her experience getting lipo this week, saying she wants people to know that recovering from the procedure isn’t as easy as it looks.
“I want to explain to people how hard it is to process,” Cardi told Entertainment Tonight about why she chose to speak about her recent procedure.
“I feel like people look at girls on Instagram and go, ‘Oh, they got their lipo done and it was so easy,”‘ she said. “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.”
During her interview, Cardi also spoke about her plans for this year’s Mother’s Day, which will be her first since giving birth to her daughter Kulture in July 2018.
“I’m booked for Mother’s Day,” Cardi said. “I’m giving people a very hard time for booking me on Mother’s Day. I had just amazing plans for Mother’s Day. I wanted to wear something very lilac and match with my daughter, probably go to brunch with my husband [Offset] and my mom.”
