Lil Uzi Vert had a pink diamond worth $24 million implanted in his forehead

Another day, another stupid a** story about some young rapper doing something ridiculous. Lil Uzi Vert, whom I don’t know nor listen to, decided to spend a cool $24 million on a pink diamond that he had implanted into his forehead (eye roll). The rapper who decided to name himself after a small green machine gun is known for his extravagant lifestyle of blinged out jewelry and high end cars. Of course Lil Uzi sells this lifestyle through his music and videos to impressionable teenagers. Anyhow Lil Uzi said it took him four years to pay off the $24 million price tag of the diamond and that his Bugatti. all of his cars and house wouldn’t cover the cost. When Lil Uzi said he had purchased the diamond, one of his fans told him to put it in a ring. Lil Uzi did one better and put the damn thing in his forehead, you know, so he doesn’t lose it? Below is more on the story via Page Six:

Last week, Lil Uzi — whose real name is Symere Bysil Woods — announced that he spent the past four years paying for a $24 million natural pink diamond that he planned to have implanted in his forehead.

When asked if he spent more on the diamond — which he said is between 10 and 11 carats and comes from his favorite jewelry designer, Elliot Eliantte — than he’s spent on his cars, the rapper replied, “Yes my Bugatti can’t even pay for it … all my cars together, plus home, this took so long now I can get this money.”

Responding to a fan who told the rapper he should just put the diamond in a ring, Uzi said, “If I lose the ring yeah U will make fun of me more than putting it in my forehead ha ha jokes on you ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha… And yes I do have insurance.”

On Tuesday, it appears Uzi followed through with his promise to have the gem placed in his face.

Fans immediately compared him to Vision, the Marvel superhero powered by the Mind Stone.

The inspiration behind the rapper’s look is unclear, though he’s long been interested in anime, the Heaven’s Gate cult and aliens.

Listen, I had to keep myself from rolling my eyes as I read this story. I try my best not to be judgmental but I am going to be hella petty and judgy here. I just don’t get these youngens. Like why are you wasting $24 million on a pink diamond that you have decided like a fool to implant in your forehead? What is the purpose of this? Why not invest your money so that it never runs out? I swear these dudes don’t have a parent or someone who cares about them around to tell them no. This idea doesn’t make sense. In fact, it is frivolous. People like Lil Uzi also think that the money will always be rolling in, never considering that one day their records won’t sell and the money will run out. Who is gonna bankroll their lifestyle once that happens?

It would seem that no one knows where Lil Uzi got this idea to implant his diamond into his forehead or whether it is safe? All I can do is facepalm Lil Uzi laughing at people telling him to put the diamond into a ring because he could possibly lose the ring and the diamond with it. Instead, putting it in his forehead was a smarter move according to Lil Uzi. At least Lil Uzi was smart enough to ensure the diamond. With that being said, I cringed when folks said that Lil Uzi looked like Vision with the Mind Stone implanted into his forehead. We know what Vision’s fate ended up being and why. Be smart kids, don’t be like Lil Uzi.

Some folks decided to roast Lil Uzi for his ridiculousness:

    When you have so much money that you start implanting it into your face – makes a pretty good case for wealth redistribution..jfc.

    • Julie says:

      Just as well that he’s trolling with this then. Lil Uzi is a shock rapper who takes his inspiration from shock rockers (his name Lil Uzi Vert is really an allusion to the word Lucifer. Say his name out loud and you’ll get it. Not sure why the article says it’s a reference to the gun)

      Anyway, It’s fake fake fake. And frankly it should be obvious seeing as he’s nowhere near successful enough to have 24M for this. And no jeweller will trust that he’ll come up with it one-day so it’s not on credit

  2. Alexandria says:

    Well uhm he’s better off investing that. At least he has insurance. But did he really pay it off or did he take another loan to pay it off? If he gets into debt will his creditors carve it out? This is quite interesting.

  3. Kiera says:

    I haven’t had enough coffee yet to read about this kind of stupid

  4. runaway says:

    I heard about this a couple days ago and I really feel sorry for him, because not too long from now we may be hearing a story about his untimely end because someone wanted that 24mill stone. Like what s stupid way to flaunt your wealth. Just like Vision in MCU I can totally see him being jumped and someone popping that thing out to his detriment or possible demise. Its just so sad and stupid.

    • Alexandria says:

      Yes I can totally see someone carving it out. Why doesn’t he just place it on a tiara and wear it at home like I…like I hear people do?

      • runaway says:

        Right, all I kept thinking about is what happened to Kim Kardashian when she was robbed after talking and flaunting her wealth and jewels.

      • GuestwithCat says:

        Lol, Alexandria, come on, tell us about that tiara!

      • cleak says:

        You sound like my kind of people! I love a good tiara!
        Also as a jeweler, I’m very curious just how this is set in his head. Is it multiple dermal piercings? Can he remove it at night? Sleeping in this thing is terrible idea! (Sheets are murder on your prongs. They essentially act like sand paper wearing down the metal. The threads can also get under the prongs, pulling them and making your stones loose. PSA from a GIA trained and certified jeweler amd gemeologist.)

      • Tanisha says:

        Like you hear people do huh? 🤣🤣

      • Anna says:

        lol @Alexandria :)

    • Aang says:

      I thought about that too. Or just taking his whole head and carving it out later.

    • Imogene says:

      I was thinking about Vision’s fate too. Like, we’ve seen this before! Why would he do this?

  5. Lex says:

    Yeah, there is no way this loser has 24 mil in change to blow on something like this.

  6. Kalana says:

    It’s harmless and silly. I’m here for a 24 mill diamond in the forehead. A fully paid off 24 mill diamond in the forehead at that.

    I hope he doesn’t get injured somehow or lose it.

  7. Miranda says:

    …that’s just gonna be a reallllly painful jewel heist. That’s all I’m saying.

  8. The lady says:

    Meanwhile, I can’t afford to go to the doctor or dentist. I hate how bitter this virus and pandemic has made me because I’ve never been an ‘eat the rich’ type person or someone who resents someone else’s success, happiness, or choices. But this made me so mad. Literally 1% of that diamond would sustain me for YEARS at my current spending level. All I want is healthcare and there are fools who can rhyme putting $24M on their forehead? Ugh. I’m sick of this culture.

    • manda says:

      I thought about that too. He buys a little thing like it’s NBD, and yeah, just a tiny fraction would pay off my mortgage and my student loans, neither of which are super burdensome, but they’re going to be out there for at least another 20 years

    • lucy2 says:

      Good point. People are mad at Chrissy Tiegen talking about her $13k wine mistake, this dude is putting $24 million in his forehead???

      Also, I’m sorry but it looks like he took a trip to Michael’s and hot glue some tacky jewelry making supplies to his forehead.
      Hope he has some money left for security too, because as others have said, he literally just made himself a big target.

      • Turtledove says:

        “Hope he has some money left for security too, because as others have said, he literally just made himself a big target.”

        And I mean, as it is IN his forehead, that means CONSTANT security. This isn’t like a celeb that wears 100 million in diamonds to the Oscars, and has security with them for the entire event. This is his entire life.

  9. Lauren says:

    Yeah. This isn’t going to end well.

  10. Sojaschnitzel says:

    I have technical questions. I have many questions, but I don’t want answers for them, except for the technical ones: how does this work? This thing’s gotta be quite heavy. Did they do multiple subdermal anchors? If this is just plugged onto the skin, how do you keep the skin underneath clean? Is it detachable? How does any of this work?

    • manda says:

      I’m SO curious as to how it is attached. Is it like getting a dental implant, is it somehow screwed into his skull?

    • SarahCS says:

      Same, my main question is how is this actually a real thing? I’m extremely squeamish so I won’t be looking any further into it but I also have a lot of questions starting with whether this is all a big joke/con.

      • Sojaschnitzel says:

        I think the most likely scenario is that it’s glued on and easily detachable, and probably fake aswell. I refuse to believe that anyone can be _this_ stupid. Not even after 4 years of the orange blimp.

    • Esmom says:

      I wonder the same and part of me wonders if he might be trolling? Because implanting stones into foreheads isn’t a thing, is it?

      • Sojaschnitzel says:

        Implants: yes, but the size is a problem. People implant small stuff all the time, but the sheer weight of this makes it kinda hard to pull off, I think. Not an expert though.

    • manda says:

      Ok I googled it. Not sure if I am permitted to post the link, but if you google it you will see stuff talking about it. (Yes…. I’m super procrastinating today.) Here is a quote:

      …Seems to be using what’s called a surface piercing to get the diamond onto his face. A surface piercing, which can also be done just about anywhere on the body, looks a little like an upside-down staple: the needle pierces the skin, makes a 90-degree turn, and emerges an inch or so from where it entered. Surface piercings are typically not connected on the outside—most often people attach a little silver ball or jewel to each end, a style Uzi has worn in the past.

      • Christina says:

        Scrolling through Instagram, I came across a repost on a media site that grossed me out of a guy with a large cut on his forehead with a thin line of blood dripping from it. The caption had a quote, “I could die from this right now.” I just kept scrolling and later saw who it was and the result. If it’s a staple, why a big slit? Your description makes more sense than what I saw.

        In short, there is photo evidence on his Instagram of some of the process. I don’t follow him, but the hip hop media sites were reposting about it.

        If this is real, he will be robbed eventually by somebody.

      • Sojaschnitzel says:

        Yeah the implants themselves are no big deal but .. how many does it take for something this large and heavy? That’s the mysterious part for me.

  11. manda says:

    He wanted to turn himself into a bond villain

    Here’s my other question: is the vert pronounced like the way french people would say it (vair) or is it anglacized so that the t isn’t silent?

    update: I googled it. The vert is short for vertical, so it’s not the french word for green. As someone who took french, I always call him “lil uzi vair”

    • Nestaw says:

      It’s pronounced like “Lucifer” apparently! So yes “vair” or “vert” works. But Google is drunk, you were actually right. Vert is the French word for green and you got the good pronouncing. if someone told me vert in a sentence I would propably ask what language is that.

  12. Bryn says:

    Imagine paying that much to look that dumb. Wow. Speechless lol

  13. fluffy says:

    And I thought my 2 carat orange solitaire was special…oh well. back to the peon brigade. My next thought was this fool will be robbed and I hope he survives. My last thought was his face is a dress rehearsal for hell. That’s all I have.

    • Lady D says:

      Your ‘not special’ two carat orange solitaire sounds absolutely gorgeous, @fluffy. I did not know they came in orange. I’m google bound.

  14. Pulplove says:

    If only there were a way to implant Vision’s intelligence instead…

  15. Justjj says:

    LOL. Is he the one that got bitten by a snake shooting that music video? Because that video is gold. Dying over here.

  16. Lynn says:

    This is a troll. I don’t for a second believe this is real. But you sure can get a lot of press coverage gluing a pink CZ to your face for pics!

  17. ce says:

    Wel, now everyone is talking about him, so mission accomplished before the thing inevitably rejects from his skin within the next year, leaving him with a giant scar on the middle of his forehead 😑

  18. Libellule says:

    He saw Die another day too many times as a kid

  19. grabbyhands says:

    Thanks, I hate it.

    I wish we were all getting more reflective about shallow asses like this moron and revering them less, but they seem to be as visible as ever.

    If this is in fact real, it is disgusting. Millions of people out of work. Hospitals still critically short of PPE. Families going hungry. Imagine what even a fraction of 24 million could do for a community or some charitable organization. But no, there’s still a big faction of people out there celebrating this like it is some kind of amazing achievement.

    • North of Boston says:

      Same can be said of people with multiple yachts or luxury homes or any super expensive jewelry. Conspicuous consumption just highlights wealth and income disparity in the world.

  20. Murphy says:

    How did he even get 24 million? I’ve never heard of him (not that I’m anyone important but you’d think to get to that level you’d have to be more of a household name…)

  21. Case says:

    That looks so painful and uncomfortable. And as other have said, is a huge security risk. This didn’t end well for poor Vision.

  22. Jules says:

    Wtf is wrong with people?

  23. Valerie says:

    Nice way to get an infection. Good thing he has enough money to buy the best care around. rme.

  24. sassafras says:

    At least he didn’t accidentally order an expensive bottle of wine and then have the cash funds to cover it gracefully. Now THAT would be horrific and set the internet on fire. *double standard alert*

    • Valerie says:

      He’s being called out here and elsewhere. I don’t think anyone is applying a double standard.

  25. MandyLU says:

    Ugh, I just can’t deal with these celebs who are all about a fake, consumer driven “lifestyle.” It’s so gross to spend that kind of money when so many people are losing everything. I hate this aspect of celebrity culture and it’s just gross and exploitive. When can we start celebrating thrifty celebs who drive a Prius, live in a modest house and give away money to people in need? That’s the lifestyle I want to see celebrated and copied.

  26. BL says:

    This is literally the stupidest thing I have read. This week.

  27. Leiticia says:

    There are too many stupid people breeding

  28. M.A.F. says:

    I have never heard of this guy. I do not listen to rap music at all but I know who the big, well-known rappers are (well…at least those prior to like 2005). Thanks to the internet everyone can make it so maybe he has some talent but this? This stunt screams otherwise. He won’t last 5 months with that thing in his head….assuming it is real (which I highly doubt).

  29. Winnie Cooper’s Mom says:

    Just when you think you’ve seen it all.. it’s like he looked at Post Malone or Lil Wayne’s face and said “hold my beer.”

  30. MerryGirl says:

    When Eddie Murphy asks in Coming to America “what’s a dumb fu*k?”….here is the answer.

  31. The Recluse says:

    Boy do I get a bad vibe from this stunt. I hope this doesn’t come back to bite him.

  32. JoGirl says:

    I think it’s all fake. I hope it’s all fake! Is this another performance art piece similar to what The Weeknd did a while back?

  33. Desdemona says:

    Well, considering he will lose everything eventually, maybe he’ll be able to sell his forehead to pay off future debts . there won’t be a problem…

  34. Ann says:

    I hope it’s insured.
