Cardi B said she also wants people to understand that liposuction results don’t happen immediately.
“Like when you see somebody that had lipo you think that they just go into the doctor’s and like boop, you come out and you look amazing, and it’s actually like a very long process, recovery,” she said. “It actually takes like a little bit more than three or four months.”
Cardi B has postponed several upcoming concerts after being given “strict doctor’s orders” to take it easy following her recent plastic surgery procedures.
According to reports, On Tuesday, a source disclosed to TMZ that the rapper has decided to postpone her headlining set at Baltimore’s 92Q Spring Bling Festival on Friday (May 24) because her recent liposuction and breast augmentation is allegedly causing serious health issues.
Cardi was instructed to take time off after undergoing the procedures. Yet, she continued to grace the stage for a string of performances preventing her body from fully healing. This created painful swelling that reached the point it hindered her movement. As a result, she was forced to pull out of the performance. Doctors are now insisting she gives herself a few weeks to rest so that the swelling goes down.
Cardi has also postponed her concerts in upstate New York. She was slated to perform at the St. Joseph’s Health Amphitheater at Lakeview and Saratoga Performing Arts Center on May 25 and May 26.
Cardi B is walking into the 2019 BET Awards as the most nominated act with seven, while late rapper Nipsey Hussle scored a posthumous nomination.
Cardi B, who has been racking up awards all year long, leads the pack with seven nominations, including ‘Album of the Year’ and ‘Best Female Hip Hop Artist’ alongside two separate nods in both the ‘Best Collaboration’ and ‘Video of the Year’ categories. But, the Bronx native got some competition ‘Album of the Year’ category from hardhitters like Travis Scott’s Astroworld and The Carter’s Everything Is Love up for noms as well.
Fresh off of nabbing his fourth Grammy and 12 awards at the 2019 BBMAs, Drake follows with five nods, including ‘Best Male Hip Hop Artist,’ ‘Video of the Year,’ ‘Best Collaboration.’
It was previously reported, Cardi B sued vloggers Latasha K and Starmarie Ebony Jones over outrageous claims regarding her health and character. Latasha, who operates a blog titled unWinewithTashaK, reportedly disparaged Cardi in a total of 23 videos posted over the span of 14 months. Click Here if you missed that.
Cardi B has been slapped with a $1 million lawsuit by a blogger who claims the rapper lied about her on social media, which caused her to receive threats from her rabid fans.
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, celebrity blogger Latasha K has filed suit against Cardi in federal court. The suit comes two months after Cardi sued her for defamation.
Latasha says she runs a YouTube channel with 500k followers and runs various other successful social media accounts for her celebrity blog.
She admits publishing a video with another blogger in which they talked about Cardi B. She claims Cardi then reached out to her privately and asked her to remove the video.
Latasha claims she offered to do an interview with Cardi to discuss her issues but Cardi declined.
In response, she claims, “Cardi B began to publicly defame Ms. Kebe, referring to her as ‘this blogger lady, by stating that Ms. Kebe makes up fake stories; harasses all of Cardi B’s friends; constantly stalks Cardi B; falsely claims that she has legitimate sources giving her information about Cardi B; uses Cardi B’s name for ‘click bait’; and many other false accusations.”
Latasha K says she has received threats — including “gang-related threats” — as a result and has had to permanently relocate her residence. She also claims to be losing money from her business by losing subscribers and advertisers.
She says she is pregnant and suffering severe emotional distress, anxiety, panic, stress, insomnia, humiliation, and depression.
Latasha is seeking in excess of a million in damages.
Ciara and Big Freedia kick things off with some twerking sessions on the red carpet. I love Ciara’s natural hairstyle.
Serena Williams strutted into the event at the Metropolitan Museum of Art wearing a pair of neon yellow Nike Air shoes made in collaboration with Off-White, and a voluminous fluorescent yellow Versace gown dotted with pink leaves.
Williams is one of this year’s Met Gala co-chairs.
Lady Gaga changed into not one, not two, not three, but four different looks on the red carpet as she made her grand entrance to the annual fashion ball.
Designed by Brandon Maxwell, Gaga’s extravagant outfits began with a voluminous pink dress with Maxwell and a number of men in tow flipping her gown in the wind. Then she stripped down to a black dress, holding an umbrella, before going back to a pink number before settling on black lingerie as she carted around a “House of Gaga” cart of goodies, including two bottles of Rose.
Billy Porter was carried onto the red carpet by six shirtless men, who wore gold pants and headpieces.
His Ancient Egypt-inspired outfit included a gold jumpsuit with wings and a gold crown. His makeup is by British make up artist Pat McGrath.
Actress Laverne Cox’s camp-inspired outfit tonight is by Christian Siriano.
Her black gown included a dramatic ruffled shoulder piece and black sequins down the front. The gown’s train is ruffled, too.
Harlem-based designer Dapper Dan, who’s currently collaborating with Gucci, hit the red carpet in a red jacket embroidered with light blue flowers.
He dressed many of tonight’s guests, including model Karlie Kloss, who is in a super-short mini dress featuring statement puff sleeves.
Some background about Dapper Dan: He outfitted a generation of gangsters, rappers, and athletes by putting high fashion logos onto bespoke pieces more tailored for the streets. His Harlem store was shut down in the early ’90s after the houses whose logos he pulled without authorization took notice.
Fast forward to 2017, when Gucci was being called out for ripping off one of his bootleg designs, leading to an official collaboration, and the Italian house backing his own atelier.
Tiffany Haddish walked the Met Gala red carpet Monday night in a metallic zebra suit by Michael Kors, complete with 57,000 sequins — but it turns out she had a secret accessory in her purse.
Beyoncé may have hot sauce in her bag, but Haddish? She came prepared with what appeared to be fried chicken in a plastic bag, which was visible as she flashed the contents of her purse to E!.
As it turns out, Haddish spoke to W Magazine in advance of the event and explained that she had been planning to bring the chicken for a while because she left last year’s Met Gala still hungry!
“Last year, I was so hungry,” she told the magazine. “This year, I got me a bigger bag. Gonna put some fried chicken in it. Don’t tell nobody till tomorrow. I’ve already called a few people that I know are going like, ‘So, I’m going to bring the chicken. You bring the hot sauce, okay?’”
Katy Perry showed up wearing a giant chandelier
Katy Perry always takes the Met Gala theme seriously.
And what better motif for her than “camp,” a look the singer has embodied on red carpets for more than a decade?
Perry went all-out this year, as a life-sized chandelier with electric candles and dripping with crystals, designed by Moschino’s Jeremy Scott.

Rapper Cardi B showed up to the Met Gala in a dramatic burgundy gown that extended into a full quilted circular train.
The dress, which is trimmed in feathers, was designed by Thom Browne. She also has a matching headpiece on to complete the head-to-toe scarlet look.
According to Vogue, the dress is filled with down. It’s decorated with 30,000 feathers, and it took 35 people more than 2,000 hours to make
Zendaya brought the house down at tonight’s Met Gala with an entrance that rivaled Lady Gaga’s. The actress, who wore a black Tommy Hilfiger gown, was walking up the stairs when her stylist, Law Roach, waved a wand and transformed her dress into a glowing version of the iconic baby blue gown worn by the Disney princess.
Speaking to Vogue, Roach said it’s more than a dress, it is mirroring a real-life transformation for the actress, from the Disney Channel to her upcoming drama “Euphoria.” “[It’s] the total opposite of every character I think she’s ever played and a huge stretch from ‘K.C. Undercover,’” he said. “It’s almost like this is the last hoorah and the last time people will identify her as a Disney princess — which isn’t a bad thing.”
