Cardi B got real candid about her nose job journey and another famous face who helped her along the way.
Cardi has long been open about having work done to her body. Last year, she got the majority of her illegal butt injections removed — cautioning people not to go through with the initial procedure by saying, "Bitch, don't fucking do it."
Speaking on The Jason Lee Show, Cardi began, "People will be assuming that when you do surgery, you're insecure about yourself or you hate yourself — and that's just not the truth. ... I like being perfect, I like a certain type of body for myself. If I want to do it, I do it."
"I always felt like I had a big nose. Even before I was famous, I was like, 'Damn bitch, I got my daddy's nose.' But I was always afraid to do my nose."
However, after seeing Instagram content touting non-surgical options, Cardi went ahead and got some work done. She explained, "Around 2018, 2019, everyone was like, 'There's a non-surgical way for your nose to get smaller, and that's filler.' I feel like it's really important for me to tell this so if anybody gets into these types of things, remember, I'm letting y'all know this ... I did fillers on my nose in 2019 — and that shit fucked my nose up."
"When you see things on Instagram, it makes sense. But fillers made my nose longer," she added. "It got wider and I'm like, 'Oh my gosh, what the fuck? I fucked up my nose and I have no choice but to actually do my nose. So in 2020, after 'WAP,' I got my nose done."
"I'm freaking out, 'What the fuck did I do to myself? Take these fucking fillers out!' No matter how much I tried to take the fillers out, it still fucked up [the tip of my nose]."
Host Jason then asked Cardi how she found someone she can "trust to touch your face and your body," adding, "I remember the time we were at Kris [Jenner]'s house and Kim [Kardashian] gave you a list of people you could call and get help. You didn’t call none of those people, you just did it at home?”
In fact, Cardi took up the suggestions of Kim — who maintains she's only had a "little bit of Botox“ done on her face. "No, I called a couple of people that she gave me," Cardi replied.
