Kanye West replaces teeth with diamonds

Kanye West — who’s known for his extravagant spending habits — removed his entire bottom row of teeth and had a row of precious gems implanted in their place because he thought it was what “rock stars are supposed to do.” In an interview with Ellen DeGeneres, he explained: “It’s really my real teeth. It’s replaced my bottom row of teeth. I just thought the diamonds were cooler. There’s just certain stuff that rock stars are supposed to do.” During his appearance, Kanye also sounded unapologetic about the incident from last year’s MTV Video Music Awards when he interrupted Taylor Swift’s acceptance speech because he felt Beyoncé should have won instead. He called himself a “soldier of culture” and said he wouldn’t go to any more award shows, but added, “Will I feel convicted about things that really meant stuff to culture that constantly get denied for years and years…I’m sorry. I will. I cannot lie about it in order to sell records.”

    This guy takes the cake!! WHAT a jerk! And now he looks like an idiot too. For some reason he thinks his opinion is the right one and the only one. Does he really think people CARE what his opinion is? He’s an arrogant A$$ who get too much air time. He should be ashamed of himself, apologizing for what he did to Taylor only to practically take it back! And using his mothers death as an excuse, turning on the waterworks on Leno, both lame! Here’s a newsflash for you buddy….you’re only a star in your own MIND!!

    Are these like custom faux teeth?? Can he eat anything with them in? Can you imagine if he chips a tooth? LOL That would be one expensive poop and tooth repair to follow.

    I’m sure a starving village somewhere would love to have some new “teeth” too. That’s just terrible.

    How pathetic. Not only IS he an idiot, now he’s made himself look like one too. And I really can’t make much sense out of his comments at the bottom of the article.

    Such an arrogant jerk. He could have put that money to good use. But instead of thinking about someone else for a change, he thinks barging up on stage and insulting another artist is being a soldier of culture. OMG, I sooo wish someone does that to him one day. He’ll be up there getting an award and some big guy will come up, grab the mike out of his hands and say, “No, this other guy should have gotten this award, he’s more talented than you are. Just saying it like it is.” Maybe then he’ll finally get it. Because he obviously still has no idea that what he did was offensive.
