NEW YORK (CelebrityAccess) Cardi B recently responded on Instagram to critics who claimed she was “lazy” for getting plastic surgery and postponing performances, saying the decision cost her millions of dollars.
“[People tell me], ‘You lazy, you should just workout.’ I do whatever the f**k I want to do with my body,” she said in her video. “I don’t have the time of day like you do. Like, my job as an entertainer is a 24-hour job, bro. 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, is not get fixed.”
“Like my boobs, no matter how much I work out, they were not gonna lift themselves,” she continued. “So yeah, I had to get f**king surgery.”
“You know, I hate canceling shows because I love money. I’m a money addict,” she added. “And I get paid a lot of money, a lot of money for these shows. A lot of money. I’m canceling millions of dollars in shows, but like, health is wealth so I have to do what I have to do.”
“Cardi was overzealous in getting back to work; she didn’t take the time necessary to fully recover from her surgery,” a rep said in a statement last week. “Her strenuous schedule has taken a toll on her body and she has been given strict doctor’s orders to pull out of the rest of her performances in May.”
