Cardi B showed off her revamped bust at the Billboard Music Awards

2019 Billboard Awards - Red Carpet Arrivals

Cardi B attended the Billboard Music Awards last night with her on-again husband Offset. They walked the carpet together and made out for the cameras – those are the photos where she’s wearing the saffron-colored Moschino dress. At one point, Cardi hiked one leg over Offset, and some people thought they saw ALL of Cardi. Hours later, in her BMA dress room, she filmed herself mostly naked as she gave people an anatomy lesson about what she was actually showing. I can’t post the video here, but it’s all over the internet and it’s really funny.

As for the actual awards, Cardi was literally nominated in more than 20 categories at the BMAs. She ended up winning six Billboard Music Awards last night, for Best Rap Song, Best Collab, Best Female Rap Artist and more. Good for her.

Meanwhile, just before the BMAs, Cardi chatted with Entertainment Tonight and she confirmed something that she’s been talking about for months: she got some plastic surgery following the birth of her daughter Kulture, because Cardi was quite disturbed by the changes with her body from pregnancy and the delivery. Cardi told ET: “I just got my boobs redone. I feel good, but then sometimes I feel like not, you know? [When] your skin is stretched out. Yes, my daughter f–ked me up! She did, she so did.” Cardi also talked about mom guilt, especially since she works so much and said that Kulture looks at her all the time now with a “bitch, where you going” face.

Also: I kind of suspect that Cardi’s plastic surgeon did some other stuff to her body. I’m not judging and I’m not calling her out or anything, but I do think she got some lipo too.

    I mean her honesty on the whole thing is refreshing. There are a lot of women who get plastic surgery after they have children because they dont feel the same. I dont see anything wrong with it as long as its acknowledged in a healthy way like Cardi is saying, shes saying she didn’t feel like herself and she could afford to do what she wanted to do.

    My SIL had my 11lb nephew and never felt the same afterwards. When he turned 2 she finally got some minor liposuction and got a breast lift, and no shame.

    Let people live in their body however comfortable they are.

    • Eliza says:

      Yeah i think she got the same work: bust and lipo (her tummy has the lipo indent marks – but it could be from years ago who knows). After I had my baby, I can’t say I’m not tempted but I’m terrified of surgery (i woke up once during a procedure) so I would probably never do anything. But I would never call out anyone doing it if it makes you feel yourself again

      • Renee2 says:

        You woke up during a procedure!!!!????!!!! What a nightmare!!!!! That is terrifying. OMG.

      • gingersnaps says:

        I woke up twice when I had surgery to remove lymph nodes in my neck. It was horrible. The first time it happened, they gave me more anaesthesia to sleep and the second time, they just ignored me. I was aware that my main doctor wasn’t there anymore and only the junior doctor and assisting staff were left. No staff also spoke to me in the recovery bay. Appalling treatment to say the least and left me with injured nerves that affected the whole of my right arm, hand and upper back. It took months before I saw a specialist who knew what was causing my pain and then nearly a year of therapy to regain the strength of my right arm.

      • Veronica S. says:

        Honestly, you may have been a case where legal action would have been acceptable. I assure you that anesthesiologists make enough money that there’s no excuse for errors that significant. I can understand why you didn’t pursue it, but the hospital deserved to be called out for that.

      • Christina says:

        Eliza and Gingersnaps, that’s awful!!! We have an overly litigious society, but what you endured is lawsuit worthy to me. I hope you both sued or at least complained.

      • Eliza says:

        @gingersnaps oh my!! No one should suffer through that!! I have no words!

        Luckily I don’t remember the pain, but all I remember is waking, having a tear run down my cheek, someone saying “she’s awake!” and then back to black.

      • Monicack says:

        I woke up during eye surgery and while there was no pain it was a nightmarish feeling. I was terrified. And my arm was itching :/ I was told to not move a single solitary muscle. I wish they had just knocked me back out.

      • gingersnaps says:

        @Veronica S & Christina, it was in South East Asia and filling a lawsuit there is a pain. I complained to the doctor but he just denied it and wash his hands off me. I had it done through a private hmo and I think he was just one of those types to get a lot of patients to cash it in or probably didn’t think much of me as it was done through private insurance and not straight up cash. I’ve never been so appreciative of our nhs here in England since then.
        @Eliza, I remember being aware but not unable to speak or move, I could feel some tugging, they could see I was awake and I was trying to communicate through my eyes that they do something but they just ignored me.

      • QuidProQuo says:

        I did all these surgeries as well, but I didn’t get the memo @opiate pain killers! I had no idea how “awesome” they are, how addictive. It was about 10 yrs ago, and the dr didn’t discuss. I white knuckled the urge to take more, and used an OTC sleeping aid instead. I became depressed, constipated and listless. Some ppl can bounce back and not get addicted. That’s the main issue I have w the rote “mommy make over”.

      • Betsy says:

        Gah! And I thought my failed spinal (full sensation, but no pain) during my c-section was bad.

    • Erinn says:

      The only thing that I shade her one as far as plastic surgery goes is that she was getting backalley butt injections. It was an illegal procedure and GOD KNOWS what was actually injected into her butt. Literally got them done in someone’s basement.

      THEN she was going to go back for a touchup to the woman who had done it – who in the meantime killed someone while giving them illegal plastic surgery.

      And that’s SO frightening. And it’s insane that she was going to go back to this woman for a touch up after describing it as the worst pain she’s ever felt, and she had had like 5 days of LEAKING.

      I am glad that she’s honest about the work she’s done – but I would like to see her really stressing to young men and women that you NEED to do your research and go to a GOOD plastic surgeon. If you’re going to buy your body just for the love of god, research it!

      • gingersnaps says:

        Yes, it’s really important to go to a qualified and competent doctor for procedures like surgery. So many things can go wrong and do go wrong.

      • lucie says:

        That sounds awful and so painful! I wonder why she went back and not to a reputable surgeon? I do like that she’s one of the few celebs that’s open about their modifications, though.

      • Erinn says:

        lucie – I think some of it was that it was back when she was stripping, and didn’t want to (or couldn’t afford to) spend as much as she should on it. But I also suspect someone she knew had gotten it done there so she figured it was fine.

        I really appreciate that she doesn’t pretend that she’s just genetically lucky or that working out gives her the body she has. I am proud of her for being so open about that, honestly. I just really would like to see her do some sort of PSA about the health risks and need to go to someone actually qualified since she’s made it a talking point.

      • lucie says:

        Erinn – I totally agree. Since she’s been through that whole experience of wanting something done and then getting that something done it would be great to see her say something about making sure you go for a good board certified surgeon and do your research because otherwise… ouch or worse. She seems to have experienced both good and bad practitioners, so it would def be an interesting story.

    • otaku fairy... says:

      Agreed. People definitely aren’t entitled to every bit of info on what women do or don’t do with their bodies, but her honesty is refreshing. It’s understandable why some women may feel tempted to lie about getting work done, but it’s better when they either just choose not to give any explanations, or be upfront about it.

  2. manda says:

    I love her!

  3. Loopy says:

    I think she is absolutely vulgar and uncouth. Her behaviour is not cute at all.smh

  4. HelloSunshine says:

    Man, I always feel conflicted when women say stuff like this. Not that they aren’t allowed to feel that way (I’ve had two kids, I’m still learning to love my body again), but that at some point, her kid might read this and feel like garbage.

    To be fair to Cardi though, she’s not saying it in a mean way. I knew someone growing up whose mom basically held it over their head that they “ruined” her body and used that as a reason to make her kid feel awful all the time so I think my experience with people saying that falls on the extreme end.

  5. lucie says:

    Does anyone have any advice as to what to do about loose skin? Since I had my baby a couple of years ago I’ve had some loose skin on my stomach and thigh area. I’m really petite, and my baby was pretty big, so that didn’t help and seemingly all the cocoa butter in the world that i slathered on didn’t really make a difference. I got back to my pre-baby size pretty quickly after the birth but this damned loose skin is getting me down. Any tips would be appreciated.

    • Bebe says:

      Do you weight training at all? It made me feel firmer, actually! But I would consider just having the loose skin snipped off or whatever if I knew I was done having kids.

    • Snowslow says:

      I only started going to the gym a year ago (I’m, 43 with 4 kids) and my body is ok but since I went my belly fells much firmer.

  6. mycomment says:

    i am old enough to remember when talent actually mattered.

  7. Naddie says:

    Emperor’s clothes all the way.

  8. otaku fairy... says:

    She’s glowing. It’s probably all the Prude Tears. They make a nice espresso substitute.

    • Lilly (with the double_L) says:

      Ha ha. I love her and her saying things in a forthright way helps break us out of “ladylike” constraints. Truly I understand why some feel uncomfortable and I’m happy to see that response become less prevalent.

  9. ReginaGeorge says:

    Her stomach looks like Tara Reid’s botched lipo belly. They have that same claymation, play-dough look.

    Having children alters your body. If you want to go in to have some corrective cosmetic surgery, by all means. I don’t see a problem with that at all. Being honest about it also makes other women feel better about themselves instead of having to listen to some of these other celebs tell their BS “snap back in 2 weeks” stories.

    • Yup, Me says:

      I agree and I also know that a quick snap back does happen for some folks. Especially when they have resources to devote to it. Two months after my baby was born, I looked pretty much the same as I had before getting pregnant.

  10. Snowslow says:

    I know we’re supposed to say that she is refreshing for not lying but I think it’s the least you can do as a celeb. Also, she seems super hooked on plastic surgery using excuses like stripping and now a kid that supposedly destroyed her body (she looked really good and is a super attractive woman). Because she is funny and intelligent we shake it off but at the end of the day she is having procedures to alter a functioning body. I really really like her but it saddens me to see someone so cute, clever, astute, talented giving in to such empty models of what a woman is supposed to be.

    Man, I miss those 70′s films where women had a little bit of belly, a little bit of leg fat and were considered incredibly hot.

  11. minx says:

    Her choice, of course, but I liked her original face. Why does everybody have to change their faces?

  12. Oceanbreeze says:

    She’s done…drugging men

  13. Michael says:

    Can somebody tell the husband to stay in his seat, nobody is there to see him

  14. Eleonor says:

    It’s not her body that is troubling me, it’s her face.
    And the dresses: she looks like Kim K. cosplay, and that is not good.

  15. Yes Doubtful says:

    Whoever did all that work butchered her stomach. I root for Cardi even though she’s done and said a lot of questionable things. Cardi is popular now, but I don’t see her having a long career unless she grows a thicker skin and gains a bit of class.
