Rapper Cardi B has been on fire lately – her career is red hot and she has a new daughter, Kulture, with her new friend Offset. With a leading role in the upcoming movie Hustlers and sold-out shows by Jennifer Lopez, it seems that Cardi B can’t do anything wrong.
Yet even superstars are self-aware and Cardi B is no exception. The rapper has talked about her recent plastic surgery, where fans wonder exactly how many procedures she has had and whether she will undergo more surgery.
How did Cardi B become famous?
Cardi B was born as Belcalis Marlenis Almanzar, but shortened her mouthful a name to make it easier to pronounce. She grew up in the South Bronx and developed the thick accent that made her so unique. She worked as a teenager for a number of odd jobs, including clerks at a sandwich shop until she was fired because she was too often late.
Cardi B then began stripping and soon became successful, earning enough money to support both herself and her family.
She also developed a decent social media presence and cultivated thousands of followers who loved her brutal attitude. Cardi B eventually got a role in the VH1 reality show, Love and Hip Hop: New York.
She started rapping shortly thereafter and it was music that really made her career start. Her hit singles, “Bodak Yellow” and “I Like It” shot straight to the top of the charts and soon fans everywhere knew her name.
How many surgeries has Cardi B had?
Cardi B gave birth to her and Offset’s daughter, Kulture, in July 2018. Cardi B and the Migos rapper have had a tumultuous relationship, but seemed determined to work things out for the sake of their daughter. Even after the birth of her baby, Cardi B decided that she wanted to try to get herself back in shape as quickly as possible to return to her debilitating tour schedule.
Earlier in 2019, rumors of plastic surgery began to circulate when the rapper was spotted on the red carpet in a dazzling outfit that revealed six-pack abs that seemed too good to be true.
Fans of Cardi B know that she is not averse to plastic surgery because she had previously admitted that her breasts were enlarged and implants were placed in her buttocks. Nevertheless, in May 2019, Cardi B revealed that she had gone under the knife again – another breast augmentation and liposuction.
She talked about her decision to undergo more surgeries and claimed that she just didn’t see the results she wanted at the gym and that she wanted her body to look specific. She also shot back at haters and said, “I do what I want with my body.”
Will Cardi B get more plastic surgery?
Unfortunately, the operation didn’t make things easier for Cardi B – in May she postponed several concerts due to complications from liposuction. After a doctor-prescribed rest period, the rapper went to Twitter to announce that she decided to go even harder to the gym to try not to have surgery in the future.
She claimed that she was already feeling better with the increase in exercise and that she had not had a headache since her workouts became more intense.
Whether or not Cardi B decides to have more operations done cannot be predicted at this time – it is certain that the rapper will continue to do things on her own terms, regardless of what the public says about it.
