Cardi B Shows Shocking And Extremely Frightening Effects Her Plastic Surgeries Have Had On Her Feet Of All Places

On Saturday, Cardi B took to her Instagram account to share a shocking picture of her feet and ankles; they were swollen to an alarming size. According to Cardi, the swelling is a side-effect of her recent plastic surgeries that have caused her to cancel performances in order to focus on her healing.

Cardi has been blunt about her decision to opt for plastic surgery to get her post-baby body into shape.

In her always-candid Instagram stories, Cardi has talked about how she has had “lipo” and breast-lift surgeries to change her postpartum body. She has defended the decision before, saying: “My job as an entertainer is a 24-hour job. 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, [are] not going to get fixed”.

Cardi’s swollen ankles are just another addition to her ongoing health saga that is causing her to cancel performances.

In late May, Cardi had to cancel a show in Maryland on her doctor’s orders. According to Cardi, the doctors told her to take a step back from the constant performances, explaining that her body needs time to heal. “My doctor was like, ‘Yo, you cannot be doing all these shows because you’re not fully healed'”, Cardi explained via Instagram. “Health is wealth, so I have to do what I have to do. My breasts gotta f—- heal”.

Cardi B has always been candid about her personal history of plastic surgery, previously revealing that she underwent “butt injection” procedures as well as breast augmentation surgery.

But, after having her baby Kulture last July, Cardi has been blunt about the fact that her postpartum body isn’t the same as it was since before she gave birth. “[My weight] has been depressing me, making me sad,” she revealed in her Instagram comments. “I still feel like I got a lot of love handles. It’s not much but I’m used to having a real tight stomach”.

And to the haters that flood her Instagram with comments telling her to simply “work out” and “eat healthfully”? Cardi has a few choice words for them: “I do whatever the f– I want with my body.”

Run Away From That Toxic Relationship with Dalex’s New Single “Feeling”

Puerto Rican singer Dalex is back to his Latin R&B roots with “Feeling“, which is about leaving behind that relationship that made you question everything, including changing who you are to please the other person.

Produced by Dimelo Flow, “Feeling” not only does it get deep about leaving behind what no longer serves you, but it is also packed with punchlines like “Te olvide como El Chavo, sin querer queriendo“.

In our interview for Latido Music by mitú, Dalex talked to us about the feeling he wanted to convey with the song, singing about heartbreak instead of his usual songs that tend to be more intimate.

Watch out interview below:

In “Feeling,” Dalex wants to explore other sounds and try doing a more commercial record that more people can relate to.

The colorful music video was shot in Miami, directed by Adrián Arredondo for Wildhouse Pictures. Dalex and his love interest are seen riding around dirt bikes, which we later found out in the interview was one of his Top 5 Feelings.

Watch the music video below:

Dalex has a busy 2021 ahead, and “Feeling” is the first single from his upcoming album due this year. The Rich Music singer told us that he has a collab with Reggaetón heavy hitters Wisin & Yandel and Zion & Lennox on the way, as well as an American singer which for now he can’t reveal, but we can’t wait to find out.

Cardi B Says She’s Planning on Releasing a Line of Hair-Care Products For Afro-Latinas

Looks like Cardi B is following in Rihanna’s footsteps and getting into the beauty game! According to a recent Instagram post, the Bronx-born rapper is going to be releasing a line of hair-care products for Afro-Latinas this year.

“This year I will be coming out with a hair[care] line that I been working on at home for my hair and my daughter’s,” Cardi announced on Instagram on Tuesday.

She explained that the decision to make hair-care products for Afro-Latinas was inspired by her realization that it’s “time for people to educate themselves on nationality, race and ethnicity.”

“Being Hispanic/Latina don’t make your hair long, don’t make your skin light, or don’t make your face features slim, [e]specially Latin countries from the Caribbean islands,” she explained further. “DNA [has] something to do with your hair, not your nationality.”

As many Latinos know, many non-Latinos are uneducated about the diversity of Latinidad. People expect all Latinos to look like Eva Longoria or Salma Hayek. But as we know, Latino is an ethnicity, not a race. Latinos come in all different shades, with vastly different features.

The comments on Cardi’s post were elated at the news that she would be releasing hair-care products for Afro-Latinas.

“Thank you!!! I’m Panamanian and they act like we don’t exist!” wrote one fan.

“Hair doesn’t have ethnicity. It has texture. It’s not black hair or white hair. It’s curly hair or straight hair. Kinky hairy or curly. 4a or 4c. People just generalize it and don’t understand,” wrote another.

On Twitter, another fan wrote: “Ok fav let’s talk about the hair care line you talking about so I can buy it and I won’t have to keep making the mask, forget everything else.”

Cardi’s decision to make hair-care products for Afro-Latinas came from (what else?) a Twitter argument.

When a Twitter user decided to challenge Cardi’s Blackness (again). The argument started when a Twitter user was claiming that Cardi’s hair pattern disqualifies her from being considered “Black.” So Cardi took it upon herself to educate her followers about the existence of Afro-Latinos. She also gave her followers a history lesson on the Dominican Republic.

The conversation got so frustrating that Cardi tweeted: “I think I’m going to do a video of different Hispanic people or Latin people or w.e. the correct term is nowadays. Cause people be thinking that every Hispanic is Mexican or something and must have the same hair texture, color, and features.”

Cardi B has always been passionate about hair-care. Last year, she shared a DIY hair mask recipe that she uses on her and Kulture’s rizos.

The hair mask consisted of argan oil, castor oil, olive oil, and mayonnaise. Since then, the at-home hair mask has gained a small but vocal fan club online.

If her hair mask recipe is a preview for things to come, we can’t wait to buy Cardi B’s hair-care products for Afro-Latinas.
