Cardi B Says All That Plastic Surgery Has Served Her A Greater Purpose

Our girl is at it again with her iconic sass. Cardi B injected some humor into her latest Insta post, saying that, “I can’t swim so I bought these titties so I can float.” Now, before we go any further, someone has to say this: there are cheaper ways to float in the water, babes! All jokes aside, though, Cardi’s comment comes after some wild online drama that’s had us breaking out the popcorn.

Let’s get this out of the way first: Cardi has a bangin’ body.

But, it’s not all natural. And that’s where this whole story starts. Because back in May, Cardi B admitted that she’d gotten her “boobs redone” after giving birth to her daughter, Kulture Kiari. Pregnancy took its toll on Cardi’s body. So much so, in fact, that a few days later she declared to her fans during a set at the Beale Street Music Festival that she’d also recently undergone liposuction. “I should have canceled today, because moving too much is gonna f*ck up my lipo,” Cardi B announced to the audience. “But b*tch, I’m still gonna get this motherf*cking money back. Let’s go!”

When asked about it in an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Cardi B admitted, “I really wanna explain to people how hard [the liposuction process is] … I feel like a lot of people look at girls on Instagram and think, like, ‘Oh, they got their lipo done, and it was so easy,’ and 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 [work to snap it] back.” It’s hard not to like Cardi for being so open about the work that she had done.

And that should have been the end of the conversation.

But of course, it wasn’t. Because two weeks later, our girl had to cancel a whole series of shows that she had planned, including performances in El Paso and Baltimore. “My doctor was like ‘yo you can not be doing all these shows because you’re not fully healed and I keep telling you this and then if something happens to you you’re going to try to blame me,” Cardi said. And that’s when it really hit the fan.

Many have come out slamming the artist for the amount of work she’s had done.

Critics started to weigh in on Cardi B’s decision to get work done, accusing her of being “lazy.” Cardi wasn’t having a bar of it, saying on Instagram: “I do whatever the fuck I want to do with my body, I don’t have the time of day like you do. My job as an entertainer is a 24-hour job, bro. So no I don’t have time to work out. I wanted specific things that I know that no matter how much I work out won’t get fixed.” And there’s the rub.

Modern beauty standards are the real problem in this equation.

It’s undeniable that there’s a widening gap between what’s physically possible, and what’s considered the standard for beauty – especially when we look at the way that beauty is portrayed online. The goal these days for women seems to be high cheekbones, luscious lips, with a well-endowed chest, tiny waist, and a bouncing booty. Not to mention that you should be sporting thighs that’ll crush a watermelon, as well as well-toned calves. Heaven forbid you have the beginnings of cafeteria lady arms! It’s an unattainable standard, unless you get work done. No wonder Cardi’s fans came out in force, with her latest on Insta.

And so who are we to tell Cardi what to do with her body? It’s her job to entertain.

Part of that, for her, also includes looking the part. Whatever augmentations Cardi has made to her body fit into the beauty expectations we all seem to have for each other. At least now that the storm has blown over, Cardi B can post ridiculous jokes on social media, and we can laugh along with her about them.

Cardi B Just Created An Instagram Account For Kulture And It’s The Cutest Thing Ever

Cardi B Just Created An Instagram Account For Kulture And It’s The Cutest Thing Ever

There’s a new influencer in town and her name is Kulture Kiari. 

On Saturday, Cardi B posted a photo of 2-year-old Kulture to her Instagram page, writing: “Follow @KultureKiari new IG…So much cool cute baby stuff coming up.”

The Instagram page Cardi was linking to was a brand new page dedicated to the chart-topping rapper’s daughter, Kulture.

So far, the page has only thirteen photos posted, but has already racked up over 700,000 followers–and counting. 

A few of the pictures show Kulture in peak-cute form, wearing an adorable plaid skirt and pink cardigan. She also has a big white bow fixed on top of her head. 

The rest of the photos range from Kulture swimming in a pool to experimenting with Snapchat filters. All of the pictures have captions written in first-person, like “I look like mommy here” and “My mom was annoying me but it’s ok cause I look cute.”

The Instagram account even has some #TBT photos of when culture was a baby–one notably cute one where she’s trying mashed potatoes for the first time.

Naturally, Cardi’s fans are eating up all the extra Kulture content, writing comments like “Kulture is looking all cute” and “She is so freaking beautiful”.

Commenters couldn’t help but exclaim over Kulture’s fashionable outfits, accessories and hairstyles. 

In the past, Cardi has defended her decision to dress Kulture in expensive designer clothing, saying that her child is in the public eye and deserves to be dressed as well as she is.

“If I’m fly and Daddy’s fly, then so is the kid. If I’m wearing Cha-nay-nay, my kid’s having the same, you know what I’m saying,” she said on Instagram. “Because if I was looking like a bad b**ch, expensive b**ch and I have my kid looking like a bum bum, then y’all would be talking s**t.”

Kulture’s new Instagram page comes just days after Cardi B filed for divorce from husband of three years, Offset.

While she has largely stayed mum on the topic, she recently broke her silence via Instagram, explaining the reason behind the divorce. Cardi said she was simply “tired of the arguments” and that her and Offset “grew apart”. She also added that she “hasn’t shed one tear” over the dissolution of her marriage.

Interestingly enough, Offset has previously been candid about his desire for Kulture to stay out of the public eye and lead a relatively normal life. “I want my kids to be kids. I don’t like them having Instagram, I don’t want to move to LA, so there won’t be cameras in their face,” he told The Breakfast Club in 2019. “I keep my kids in public school, I don’t want my kid to be spoiled.”

Cardi, it looks like, has other plans.

Cardi B Is, Once Again, Fed Up With Trolls Trying to Body Shame Her With Edited Photos

Cardi B Is, Once Again, Fed Up With Trolls Trying to Body Shame Her With Edited Photos

Cardi B, once again, took to Instagram to combat the neverending stream of trolls who are trying to tear her down.

Earlier this month, some unflattering photos of Cardi made the rounds on the internet, prompting people to publicly bully her for her looks. The unflattering photos showed her makeup-free, her hoodie up, appearing to be shopping at her local Target.

Cardi was hone too pleased with the photos. In a now-deleted Instagram post, she shared a side-by-side photos of the viral picture next to the original one. The viral picture was noticeably photo-shopped to make her face look less attractive and her behind look more exaggerated.

In a lengthy Instagram caption, Cardi condemned the internet bullies, calling out people for sharing photoshopped pictures on their platforms for clicks and likes.

“It’s the fact that people try to photoshop my face and body to post on their platform so people can bash me and make me feel down on my appearance on purpose….and the fact this a paparazzi picture from months ago,” she wrote.

She also added a note in her comments calling out the hypocriy of some of the female bullies who otherwise claim to be all about “supporting women” and “female empowerment”.

“And the sad sh– is,” she said. “That the people that be doing these rumors and be trying to make people bash me about my looks are WOMEN!”

Ironically enough, the shopping session that Cardi was papped at was allegedly dedicated to her buying $5,000 worth of gifts for children in need in the upcoming holiday season. The photos were from December 2019.

This isn’t the first time Cardi has publicly clapped back at body-shamers and online haters. In June, she was also the target of internet harassers who were criticizing her for gaining weight during quarantine.

At the time, Cardi posted a response video to Instagram joking that she “gained a little weight” but had “lipo money”, so the haters didn’t bother her. And in the past, it seems that haters never have bothered her.

Cardi has always been transparent about her willingness to go under the knife in order to alter her appearance.

But she’s always expressed her frustration at the catch-22 that comes with plastic surgery. “I feel like women constantly body shame me. They wanna be like: your body’s mad fake. You got fake boobs, you got a fake ass,” she said in a 2017 interview with HOT 97.

“And it’s just like: if you love your body so much, then why are you mad that I have a fake body? Maybe I didn’t really like my body. Does it bother you that I didn’t like my prior body and I wanted to get it fixed? People is never happy.”

But as always, Cardi considers success the best form of revenge. She promised that the haters are going to be especially mad in the next months, seeing as she has a project in the works that will “make a sick soul nauseous”.

If her new project comes anything close to the success she’s had recently, we’re 100% here for it.
