Here’s What Prompted The Social Media Speculation

Over the weekend, a TikTok user with the username @simplyvee247 took to social media to upload footage from a Monica concert. In the clip, the singer could be seen sporting a green full-length bodysuit as she sang her hit song, ‘U Should’ve Known Better,’ to the crowd.

Additionally, the TikTok user captioned the clip with, “That bbl done took Monica voice away.”

Check it out below.

To date, the TikTok video has gone viral, garnering over 1.5 million views. Additionally, social media users seemed to believe that Monica’s backside appeared more voluptuous than usual.

One TikTok user, DarrenSok, wrote, “Oh Monica. You never had to enhance anything. You were perfect as is…” While another TikTok user, Faren, added, “Now why she go & do that?!”

TikTok user Naisha Gaitor wrote, “the caption broke me down… cause you might be right.”

Furthermore, TikTok user R added, “Stuff like this just makes me realize nobody is truly happy with their body! Even when it’s clear they naturally look great and should be very confident in that. She looks great but did not need this.”

Over on X, formerly known as Twitter, users shared their reactions to the viral video as well.

Monica Sets The Record Straight

Then, on Monday, February 19, Monica took to Instagram Live and, while streaming with her fans, addressed the viral footage and speculation.

“Oh, yall got jokes. Y’all got jokes… Let me tell you something — my health is far too to be playing like that. And then, why they ain’t get this part?” the singer explained, pointing to her stomach. “Why they leave that? Like, I don’t understand.”

The singer explained that, for her, a “BBL would mean bought by Linda.” She then proceeded to grab a pair of Spanx underwear that featured butt pads and showed them to her fans.

“I don’t even wear lash extensions. I still wear strips that I can rip off and roll on,” she continued, seemingly implying that she wouldn’t undergo a more permanent procedure like a BBL. “Like d**n, I done kept it real with y’all so long, y’all forgot? Like what in the world?”

Before concluding the matter, Monica explained that if she undergoes any procedure, she’ll be the “first” to inform her fans.

Watch the singer’s full sentiments below.

One Rapper Recently Got Candid About Undergoing BBL Surgery

Although Monica won’t be spilling the tea on any BBL-related secrets anytime soon, Latto opened up about her surgery last year. As The Shade Room previously reported, Latto got candid on the matter in June 2023.

“I got a BBL in 2020. I also got 360 lipo. That’s on my stomach, back, sides, and whole torso,” she explained during an interview with Cosmopolitan. “But then you’ve got to maintain it. So I just hired a trainer…”

Latto explained that she initially considered going back for surgery but instead went with a trainer and has now developed a routine to maintain her results.

“I tweeted the other day that I was almost going to get a round two of surgery, and then I was like, let me just get a trainer instead. If you look on my Instagram, you’ll see I’ve always worked out—before and after the surgery. But I will leave early or not push myself as hard. Having a trainer holds you accountable,” she told the outlet.
