Cardi B Says All That Plastic Surgery Has Served Her A Greater Purpose And Twitter Is Gagged

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.

Fans Are Telling Offset To Watch His Back After They Discovered How Hot Cardi B’s Bodyguard Is

Fans Are Telling Offset To Watch His Back After They Discovered How Hot Cardi B’s Bodyguard Is

@OceanPopNews/ Twitter

As you may know, on Tuesday Cardi B made an appearance at Queens Criminal Court to deal with the case of attempted assault on New York bartenders Sarah “Jade” Wattley and Rachel Wattley. While Cardi immediately made headlines for her fashion-forward outfit that consisted of a large black coat decked out in feathers and a matching wide-brimmed hat, another member of her entourage was making headlines for an entirely different reason

Of the litany of paparazzi pictures documenting Cardi entering the courthouse, Cardi’s fans clocked the visage of a particularly handsome man closely following Cardi In the background  The gentleman in question was revealed to be Cardi B’s bodyguard, who goes by the name of Price. Wearing a black turtleneck, a gray blazer, and a trendy fisherman beanie, Mr. Price looked as if he just stepped out of a Calvin Klein ad.

As soon as the internet set their sights on Cardi’s bodyguard, all mention of her legal woes went out the window.

With his chiseled jawline, furrowed brow and pouty lips, it seems as if Price was born to become an internet thirst trap. His Instagram feed is chock-full of pictures of him smoldering for the camera, decked to the nines in stylish designer clothes. It’s safe to say that Price could have had a very successful career as a male model if he hadn’t pursued a career in security.

But based off of his social media activity, Price seems to be completely content with his current calling. According to his Instagram page, Price owns and operates Priceless Protection Services, a private security company that’s based out of Georgia. He frequently shares posts about how blessed he feels to have the job he does. On Cardi’s birthday, Price shared a photo of the two of them on his page, with a caption that read: “It’s an honor continuing to protect you and your family”.

Not only is Price a successful businessman, but he appears to be a devoted father as well.

Adorably enough, Price often shares photos of himself with his son, the most recent one being on Thanksgiving. He captioned the precious photo of him and his son: “He has me lost for words when I usually have so much to say”. No word yet on whether Price is single or taken (but we’re hoping for the former).

According to Price’s Instagram page, he is also a loyal employee. He appears to have a close relationship with his employer, frequently singing Cardi’s praises through effusive posts, like the most recent one congratulating Cardi for gracing the cover of Vogue. “You are 100% deserving of god‘s plan for your life,” he captioned under a photo of Cardi holding her baby, Kulture.

Considering the popularity of Cardi’s hot bodyguard, it could be possible that she hired him in order to detract attention from her frequent headline-making antics.

It should be noted that Cardi wasn’t visiting Queens Criminal Court for a lighthearted matter. The “I Like It” singer was attending a hearing related to the 2018 altercation she had with Sarah “Jade” Wattley and Rachel Wattley outside of a New York strip club.

According to sources, Cardi tried to attack the Wattley sisters in retaliation for Jade’s romantic involvement with her husband, Offset. Cardi was charged and arrested in October 2018 for her involvement in the altercation, and earlier this year she pled not guilty to two felony counts of attempted assault as well as the lesser counts such of harassment, conspiracy, and reckless endangerment. In other words, Cardi is dealing with a lot right now.

Naturally, Twitter users couldn’t get enough of the tall, dark, and handsome Mr. Price.

People were shook that Cardi could be constantly surrounded by such a snack without giving into the temptation of…indulging.

This Twitter user decided to use the buzz around Cardi’s bodyguard to shoot her shot:

We can’t blame a girl for trying.

This girl decided to keep her love for price simple and to the point:

Join the club, chica.

This person had a brilliant idea after seeing pics of Cardi with Price:

We would even settle for a reality show at this point.

Some people had some spot-on jokes about how Offset should be watching his back:

Yes, we know Offset and Cardi have a solid relationship, but if there’s one thing that can sever a bond as strong as theirs, it’s a razor-sharp jawline.

Cardi B Makes History As First Female Rapper To Cover Vogue U.S. And Talks About Donald Trump And Stripping

Cardi B Makes History As First Female Rapper To Cover Vogue U.S. And Talks About Donald Trump And Stripping

In her short, but vastly successful career Cardi B has accomplished many a firsts. Back in January of 2018, Cardi B became the first woman to have five top 10 singles on both the Billboard Hot R&B/Hip-Hop chart at the same time. Then, in July 2018, with the debut of her fourth single “I Like It,” the rapper became the first female rapper to achieve multiple chart-toppers when she rose and clinched the number one spot on the Hot 100. Later that same year in October, with the release of Invasion of Privacy, she became the first female artist to have all of her songs from one single album certified gold or higher in the United States. This month, Cardi B’s debut on the cover of Vogue U.S. marks another first for the Dominican Trinidadian rapper. 

On Monday, Vogue sneak peaked a digital preview of its January 2020 cover series. The cover marks the first time a rapper graced the cover of the Vogue U.S.

Vogue is bringing the heat for January with not one but four — and then some — marvelous cover stars. The smallest of them all is Cardi B’s one-year-old daughter, Kulture Cephus, whose modeling skills are proving to rival even her famous mom. The spread is just about all that Twitter is talking about, and we can’t get enough.

For her feature, La Caldi spoke about managing her temper and finding peace in her own appreciation for her work.

The rapper, who has managed to go viral on more than one occasion for her devastating and savage clap backs and rants on Twitter and Instagram in the recent past, says she’s actually a pretty “calm” person these days

“I’m the type of person now who like, if we talk about things and settle things, I will do that,” the rapper explained to Vogue while also sharing that she has become better at ignoring accusations about her former career as a dancer. “I just hate when people be like, oh, you used to be a stripper, so you’re a prostitute, you used to fuck guys. I never used to fuck guys. The thing about it is, when you’re known as a stripper that fucks guys for money, everybody hates you because you’re fucking up the game. You’re making guys expect more than what you should be giving, and the next bitch pays for it. I don’t have to give guys no ass. You want something from me? I want something from you. I want your money, you want my time. So I’m just gonna give you time. Once you start expecting more, my phone number’s disconnected. Bye.”

Touching more about her experiences with her attitude and outlook on life and how to handle, Cardi B admits in her interview that she had to climb herself out of a sinkhole to get to this point- and that her climb has been pretty steep.

Fans, of the rapper already know that Cardi B turned to stripping during a low point in her life. She’d been kicked out of her family home because she was fighting with her sister and moved in with her boyfriend at the time and his mother. “My boyfriend kept cheating on me. He and I used to get into arguments, hitting each other a lot. Girls like to say, ‘I will beat a nigga’s ass.’ I used to have that mentality,” she explained. “I used to hit my first boyfriend until he started hitting me back and it just got out of control. But I started stripping, and I made enough money to move out.”

Still, the rapper was quick to reveal that, though she’s been able to control her outrage more recently, she still has extremely negative and strong opinions about our president.

Cardi, who in recent months has expressed her staunch support for presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders, says that she understands Trump more than most.   “I feel like not any of these Democrats have a really strong support base—I’m gonna say a fan base, because it’s almost like a fan base, what Trump has,” she told the outlet. “Because he was an entertainer, Trump knows how to get them to keep on talking about him. All these little antics that he do, like get into arguments with Chrissy Teigen, it’s just techniques to get attention. And I get that. You like a certain artist that do crazy shit. But this person is in charge of our country. This person is in charge of our well-being. When it comes to my president, I want my president to be, like, extremely holy. That is the person I want to look up to. I don’t want my president to have any hatred toward a certain type of people. I don’t want my president to be arguing with freaking celebrities or caring what people think of him. I want my president to tell me an answer on shit that.”
