Rapper Lil Uzi Vert pierces forehead with $24M pink diamond

Lil Uzi Vert will never have to worry about losing his $24 million pink diamond. It’s embedded in his forehead. The rapper, whose real name is Symere Bysil Woods, unveiled his new accessory on social media Wednesday.

He told fans he’s been paying for the stone since 2017 and that it’s “10 almost 11 carats.”

It didn’t take long before the Twitter comments began — ranging from the diamond being off center to comparisons to Vision, from the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and “Rick and Morty” and others.

But Lil Uzi Vert explained why it looks a bit off.

“Y’all keep talking about it’s off, it still has a long bar in it so it can move ‘cause of the swelling,” he said in an Instagram story. When the swelling goes down, he continued, “it gon’ be right there.”

“Last year, his second studio album, ‘Eternal Atake, debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200, then a week later, he dropped ‘Eternal Atake (Deluxe) — LUV vs. the World 2, a sequel to his 2016 mixtape ‘Lil Uzi Vert vs. the World,’” Vulture reported.
