Latto Admits That The Beauty Standards Within The Music Industry Influenced Her Decision To Get Plastic Surgery

Latto Admits That The Beauty Standards Within The Music Industry Influenced Her Decision To Get Plastic Surgery

Latto is opening up about self-acceptance–on and off the surgery table.

In a recent episode of her show, 777 Radio, Latto and her sister, Brooklyn Nikole, chatted about the effects of BBL culture and how it has ultimately catapulted a surge in modern-day women battling the new age standards of beauty.


During the now-viral conversation, Latto set the table for dialogue by briefly touching on her own experience. She confessed,

“You know, I got a little work done on my body [or] whatever.”

After her sister Brooklyn Nikole said that people really can’t tell that the “Put It On The Floor” rapper has had work done, Latto added:

“A b*tch looks natural! ‘Cause this one thing about it… if you gon’ do it, do it right. I’ma do it right. I did it right. For a girl that [has] little tweaky-tweaks, I be on [my sister’s] case about not touching nothing!”

As you may know, since the beginning of the 24-year-old thriving rap career, her appearance has long been a topic of discussion on social media.

When speaking on the never-ending search for validation that comes with plastic surgery, the Georgia-raised lyricist said,

“To all the young girls listening, all the women listening right now, I’m telling you from someone who’s been there, done that. Find peace within your natural state. Because you’re going to find a flaw, and another flaw, and another flaw, and another flaw. Surgery–any of that stuff–is not a permanent fix.”


She continued:

“Baby, we still editing pictures. [laughs] We still having debacles in the mirror.”

However, although Latto does encourage others to embrace their God-given assets, she made it clear that she isn’t against going under the knife.

Latto shared,

“I’m a very much advocate for women, in general. Surgery, natural, whatever. However you want to play it, just make sure that’s what you comfortable with. But I just think surgery is so popular now.”

The “Big Energy” phenomenon even got transparent about her experience with body-image issues and how the entertainment industry played a part in that.

She concluded,

“I’d be lying if I said that me doing music didn’t have an influence on me. You know? Like… I’m constantly in the limelight. And I was so young [when I started out]. Like, you gotta think… I got my first big break at sixteen, on ‘The Rap Game.’ Then ‘B*tch From da Souf’–all that started hitting up. I was nineteen [then].”


Latto, originally known as Miss Mulatto, got her start on Lifetime’s hit series ‘The Rap Game,’ back in 2016. The reality show followed a group of young, aspiring rappers and their hunger for a shot in the game.

After turning down the deal from producing giant Jermaine Dupri that she was offered upon winning the competition, Latto set out on her own and has since become one of the biggest female emcees of this generation.

Her sophomore album, 777, debuted last year and is now deemed her most successful work to date.
