Cardi B Candidly Apologizes To Fans After Plastic Surgery Forced Her To Postpone Her Concerts

In May, Cardi B had to cancel several upcoming concerts. This is due to doctor’s orders for her to rest after she got plastic surgery.

Last August, after the birth of her daughter, Cardi had suggested the idea that she might get liposuction.

In an Instagram Live video she said,

“I still feel like I got a lot of love handles right here. It’s not much, but it’s like — I’m used to having, like, a real tight stomach.”

After it was revealed she had the procedure, people started making nasty comments online. Many accused the star of being too lazy to work out.

Cardi B was ready for them.

“I do whatever the f– I want with my body,”

Her response begins.

“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 going to get fixed. Like my boobs, no matter how much I work out, they’re not going to lift themselves.”

“So yeah, I have to get f—- surgery. That’s right. All right?”

This is great, but unsurprising. After a wardrobe malfunction sparked debate about her, ahem, private parts, Cardi was very up front about her situation.

However, not all her words were for her haters. After hearing how disappointed her fans were over her cancellations and postponements, she apologized.

“I just want to say I’m sorry, guys. I gotta get better.”

She explained some of the side effects she’s been dealing with after plastic surgery.

“The way that my body be swelling up when I catch planes and s—, it’s so scary that I be freaking out. Like I really be freaking out.”

Rumors had been going around that the famed rapper had got liposuction, despite her initial denials. She confirmed the rumor at a concert in early May.

Despite her claim that she was “still gonna get [her] motherf-ing money back” from the expensive procedure by performing, it would seem she was a little overzealous.

A representative for Cardi told PEOPLE,

“Her strenuous schedule has taken a toll on her body and she has been given strict doctor’s orders to pull out of the rest of her performances in May.”

Fans suspected something was up when Cardi pulled out of a Memorial Day Weekend concert in Maryland. She also postponed a performance in El Paso.

Knowing now that she’s taking the time to heal, and that she’s one of the most successful entertainers in the world, it’s a little easier to crack some jokes.

Cardi is scheduled to return to her concerts sometime later this month, but she’s not leaving fans completely alone. She released a new single called “Press” yesterday.
