Cardi B says plastic surgery gave her weight confidence after feeling ‘ugly’ as a teenager


Rap star Cardi B says having plastic surgery helped her to regain her confidence after feeling “ugly” as a teenager.

The 28-year-old singer, famous for her controversial ‘WAP’ song with Megan Thee Stallion, made the admission in an interview with Mariah Carey for Interview magazine.

Cardi said she had been bullied as a teenager for being skinny and flat-chested and was made to feel “ugly and underdeveloped.”

“In the Bronx, it’s about being thick and having an a**, so young boys would be like, ‘Look at your flat a**’,” she said.

“You ain’t got no titties.”

She said when she turned 18 and became a dancer, she earned enough money for breast implants.

“Every insecurity that I felt about my breasts was gone,” she said.

‘Super confident’

But she was still self-conscious about not having a “big butt”, so two years later, she had surgery to alter that, too.

“And then I felt super confident,” she said.
