When Cardi B canceled a slew of shows last month due to complications with plastic surgery, everyone had an opinion. For some, it was a "told you so" moment after the many procedures the rapper had undergone. Others were supportive of the decision, and some urged her to just lose weight the old-fashioned way.
And while the rapper has never really cared about the opinions of others, it seems like the past few turbulent weeks have given her a change of heart. According to Cardi, she's giving up plastic surgery and is instead looking to alternative body-image tools.
And she was just as unhappy as those who purchased tickets.
She said the many cancellations resulted in her losing tons of money, something we all know Cardi takes seriously.
“I hate canceling shows because I love money. I’m a money addict,” Cardi shared on Instagram Stories. “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 health is wealth, so I have to do what I have to do.”
But her break was very much needed.
Not only was Cardi getting constant headaches, she was also swelling tremendously from excessive travel, a result of what many say is spiked blood pressure.
"Look how swollen my feet get every time I take a plane; imagine my body. Reasons why doctors told me to chill on shows," she captioned a photo of her massive feet.
