Cardi B credits cornbread, collard greens, and neck bones as the main contributors to her curvaceous shape in her latest song ‘Bickenhead.’ But she’s had a little help outside the kitchen too — she once got butt injections in a basement this one time.
In a recent interview with GQ, Cardi admitted to getting the injections — because having a bigger butt helped her make more money when she was a stripper. Oh, and she also said her boyfriend at the time had cheated on her with someone with ‘a fat, big ass.’
As The Cut points out, a Brazilian butt lifts usually cost about $9,000 (R108559.35). At $800 (R9649.72), then, Cardi’s procedure was a steal — but also highly illegal, because Cardi says she got the job done done in an apartment basement in Queens, New York. Predictably, the pain was almost unbearable: ‘They don’t numb your ass with anything,’ she said. ‘It was the craziest pain ever. I felt like I was gonna pass out. I felt a little dizzy. And it leaks for, like, five days.’
That pain didn’t deterfrom returning for a touch-up though, or at least attempting to go for round #2. But when she went back for more injections, she found out that her ‘doctor’ was in jail because somebody had allegedly died on her operating table.
In conclusion, don’t even consider illegal butt injections, because dancing and working out to Cardi’s latest anthems is also a safe way to get a butt big enough to sing, ‘He can tell from the front I got ass behind me.’
