It’s been a long road back to stage performing for hip-hop sensation Cardi B, so when her wardrobe nearly derailed her return, she didn’t take it lying down.
The “I Like It” rapper performed Sunday at the Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival in Manchester, Tennessee. During her set, she explained to audience members that her outfit ripped before vanishing off the stage and reappearing in a plush white bathrobe, the Tennessean reported Sunday.
“We gonna keep it moving, baby,” she promised the crowd, according to the outlet. “We gonna keep it sexy. I don’t know how in this [expletive] robe, but we gonna do it!”
After leaving behind her typical glitzy, colorful garb for the leisure look, Cardi B, whose real name Belcalis Marlenis Almánzar, performed some of her radio favorites like “I Like It” and “Drip.”
Shaking off the wardrobe malfunction was a small inconvenience compared to the 26-year-old entertainer’s last few weeks recovering from complications due to liposuction and other plastic surgery. The surgery led the emcee to cancel and postpone a series of shows. She declared on Twitter just last week she had been “working out for the past 2 weeks” to avoid ever going under the knife for beauty, again.
Her fans applauded her perseverance during the performance on social media.
