American rapper Cardi B, who never shies away from speaking her mind, recently revealed how plastic surgery has made her feel ‘super confident’ as she opened up about her childhood insecurities.
As per People Magazine, the Grammy-winning rapper got candid with fellow musician Mariah Carey as the hitmakers sat down for an honest chat in the latest issue of Interview magazine. Even though people may have different opinions about her cosmetic procedures, Cardi has been vocal about her plastic surgery experiences. She said that enhancements make her feel her most confident.
The rapper said,” Well, I am from New York, right? And New York is a melting pot, especially where I grew up in the Bronx.”
She added, “I was really skinny when I was younger, and in the Bronx, it is about being thick and having an a– so young boys would be like, ‘Look at your flat a**. You ain’t got no t*****s.’ And it would make me feel so ugly and undeveloped.”
When Cardi became old enough to work as a dancer in a strip club, she used her earnings to get breast implants, which was the first step toward forgetting about her insecurities.
She said, “When I was 18 and became a dancer, I had enough money to afford to buy b***s, so every insecurity that I felt about my breasts was gone,” she said.
But by age 20, enhancing her butt became her next priority. “When I was 20, I went to the urban strip club, and in the urban strip clubs, you had to have a big butt. So I felt insecure about that. It took me back to high school. So I got my a** done,” Cardi said.
