Kanye West’s popularity rating took a dive after he majorly snubbed Taylor Swift at the 2009 VMA’s. But the rapper is back and has a lot to say. He appeared on The Ellen Degeneres Show to talk about life and was sporting diamonds and gold.
In the interview, Kanye West talked about the 2009 VMA aftermath:
“I left America. I stopped doing music all together. I just took some time. I went to Japan just so I could get away from paparazzi all together. Then in November I moved to Rome and just lived there and when I came back to the states I moved to Hawaii. I lived there for about six months and just worked on music. It was the first time that I got to stop since my Mom had passed. I had never stopped and never tried to even soak in what all had happened…”
Now about the Kanye West teeth…When Ellen asked if his recent dental work was a grill, Kanye responded, “I just thought that diamonds were cooler, so i asked the dentist to remove the bottom row of teeth and replace them with diamonds.” He further clarifies on his Twitter, “My teeth are real diamonds… these are not fronts… I replaced my bottom row of teeth with diamonds.”
Is he insane? Who does this? A removable “grill” is one thing but to completely remove your own teeth just to put diamonds and gold in their place? Who willingly has that kind of work done? What if you swallow one or chip one? What if the style isn’t “cool” in a few years. His real teeth are gone! Forever.
Oh Kanye I think you may be regretting this one.
