Kanye West is stuntin’ a diamond-studded smile.
In a move that seems pretty extreme even for Kanye-loving Kanye, the rapper has had his bottom row of teeth removed and replaced with diamonds.
The “Runaway” rapper made the stunning confession during an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show this week. During a commercial break, Ellen question Kanye about what she thought was a grill (a piece of dental jewellery that snaps over teeth and is removable), but the too-rich-for-his-own-good rapper explained that diamonds are not removable but an actual implant. A dentist had to yank out Yeezy’s teeth to make room for the new sparklers.
“It’s really my real teeth,” he said. “It’s replaced my bottom row of teeth.”
“You’ve ripped all those teeth out and put in that?” Ellen inquired.
“I just thought the diamonds were cooler. There’s just certain stuff that rock stars are supposed to do,” West repliied.
“You can’t floss,” Ellen quipped. “Wow, so now you just get food stuck in your diamonds!”
