Cardi B has no time for critics of her decision to undergo plastic surgery.
The 26-year-old rapper took to Instagram to address backlash after cancelling several shows in order to recover from liposuction and other plastic surgery procedures.
In an Instagram Live, the “I Like it Like That” rapper told fans, “I do whatever the f-ck I want to do with my body, I don’t have the time of day like you do.”
Earlier this month, the star’s team released a statement to People magazine announcing she would be cancelling the remainder of her shows for the month of may in order to rest.
“My job as an entertainer is a 24-hour job, bro. So no, I don’t have time to work out. I wanted specific things that I know that no matter how much I work out won’t get fixed,” Cardi said of the decision.
The Bronx, N.Y. native first addressed her latest procedures during a concert at the Beale Street Music Festival.
“Y’all know I got lipo,” she told the crowd. “But what I didn’t get was ab etching. I even had [six] packs before I gave birth. Y’all can go to Google and search.”
The rapper’s rep called her “overzealous” for returning to work following her surgeries, but as Cardi explained in her livestream, the desire to earn money was too great to resist.
“I hate cancelling shows because I love money. I’m a money addict,” she said. “I get paid a lot of money, a lot of money for these shows. A lot of money. I’m cancelling millions of dollars in shows, but health is wealth so I have to do what I have to do.”
