Kanye West Replaces Teeth With Diamonds



I have heard of some pretty idiotic things in my life, but Kanye West replacing a perfectly good set of teeth with diamonds and gold might just be at the top of the vanity idiot list. In an interview on Ellen, Kanye showed off his new set of bottom teeth which are made of diamonds and gold. It looks like a grill so Ellen asked if it was and Kanye said, "It's really my real teeth. I replaced my bottom row of teeth. I guess there's just certain things that rock stars are supposed to do."

It is one thing if you have bad teeth and need to have them replaced anyway, but he had great teeth and had them removed. What kind of dentist would willingly do that? Yes, I know, one who is paid a lot and will get lots of free publicity as a result of this.

I think they look stupid. In other news he said that after the whole Taylor Swift thing he just decided to get away so went to Japan and to Rome to get away from the paps and the tabloids. Huh. Hear that Lindsay? Yeah, as if she would ever do that.

What a jackass.

IMHO, a healthy set of teeth is worth way more than a diamond encrusted grill. Plus, that shit is tacky.

Karmen said...

Ewwww!! Actually getting teeth replaced?? Doesn't that mean he has to get them pulled? #kanyecringe

I like Kanye, I didnt give a crap about the stupid Taylor thing, I even think its funny that he calls himself The Genius of this Generation.
HOWEVER this stunt is annoying me for some reason. I guess I'm disappointed, all the uber talented musicians are dying off like MJ and what I see nowadays is the people coming up who are talented have zero humbleness about them. They are fake just by trying to conform to the idea of coolness or as Kanye puts it 'rock and roll'ness.
This era sucks right now. I wnna go back to the 90's and 80's when ppl gave less of a fuck :(

ha! @ Karmen "kanyecringe"

stupid ass.

That looks uncomfortable.

Sue Ellen Mishkey said...

I don't even know where to start with this one. This is all kinds of wrong.

Susan said...

Jasmine, I love your post. I'm a classical piano teacher, and the music that my students are subjected to in this day and age makes me cringe. Not to mention the inability to just hang out at Tower Records all day and listen to some cool underground stuff. Everything is SO gimmicky and contrived. And the best part is that Kanye thinks he's SO rock and roll. Just like Taylor Swift thinks her John Mayer revenge poem is SO deep and edgy. Gag.

MommaBear said...

Not the most original idea he's ever had. It kind of smells of desperation. If they were rotten, it's one thing, but to mess with perfectly healthy teeth is just stupid. I can't imagine that he had his teeth pulled. Looks to me like they might be precious metal crowns with diamonds imbedded. But, even to do that, you have to cut back the natural tooth to a post, and cement the crowns over top.

It's a good thing that toothpaste makes a good jewelry cleaner.

ITA with all the comments about today's gimmicky music. It's sad really.

Patty said...

Rock star?? Not really.

Nosey Parker said...

Kanye was in a car accident that broke his jaw in 3 places. Maybe he didn't have good teeth and needed to replace them.

blue sky said...

He pulled his teeth to look like that? He really does have crap for brains!

chopchop said...

He better be careful of what he eats or he'll be shitting those diamonds.

Susan said...

Dbag

Saw him on Ellen. Teeth are ridiculous but he wasn't an ass on the show. Actually, he was likable. In an amusing way.

Wil said...

Ugh .. this guy here.

Well .. say adios to his upper teeth soon. I cannot imagine grinding them against this ridiculousness is good for them.

And add one more vote for today's shitty music being .. well .. shitty. : /

wildcatward22 said...

his whole mouth was so screwed up from the car accident (does everyone really forget his song through the wire"?) that it is highly unlikely those so called "great teeth" you speak of were really his teeth but veneers or something like that anyway...so it is not as ridiculous as you are making it out to be...i would never do it, but then again i will never have as much $ as he does...

MISCH said...

What an ass...

lanasyogamama said...

I get mad if my engagement ring gets dirty! I can't imagine eating with diamond teeth. Ewwww!

KLM said...

Is it just me or does his face look weird? Like cheek implants or something? I guess I haven't really studied his face, but it just looks a little unnatural.

janele said...

I'm one of those few who has never heard a Kanye song (or would not recognize one if it's being played).

I only know of him from his dealings with Bush and Taylor.

Call me cruel, but I can't wait until someone jacks him for his teeth.

skeeball said...

what a total idiot! how utterly ridiculous! does he think it is edgy??

Since my boss is out of work today, i am sitting here listening to "The Very Best of Otis Redding", nothing today even comes close

Anonymous said...

methinks kanye is in the early stages of a mental illness or has one serious drug addiction.

that being said, he can rap.

Nosey Parker said...

ITA wildcatward22- His teeth were already in bad shape.

@KLM - A car accident broke his jaw. He always looks like that, but some photos show it more.

Mango said...

The guy was always highly strung but I think his mother's sudden death unhinged him a bit more.

Jessica said...

I am baffled why this is news, he has talked about it before, even posted pics of it on twitter long ago. He had a really bad car accident years ago and lost those teeth. He didn't quite decide to go have all his bottom teeth removed and replaced with diamonds.

selenakyle said...

Just means his dentist is gonna charge the living fuck outta him for the rest of his stupid life. Good for the dentist...charge away! This dumb fuck has more money than sense!

When he hits the skids he'll have to pry out a diamond here and there to pay the rent and keep all his hangers-on in the shit.

Pookie said...

does he deliberately shoot himself in the foot...does being a douche just come THAT natural? b/c really, that's surely a talent in and of itself.

moron.

TinselSass said...

My reaction to the headline:

Fuckingidiot.

My reaction to the story...

SUCHAFUCKINGIDIOT.

Audrey said...

Given all the needy and starving people in this world and that's what he uses his money for? It's obscene.

annalise said...

diamonds, really? stupid and ignorant. hope they grind down his top teeth.

bandy said...

I commented on this on someone's fb page last night. Dude has totally slapped everyone in the face who is struggling financially right now. He could do so much good with the money he blew on his teeth. think about all of those people who lost their homes, can't afford to eat, can't afford clothes. are those blood diamonds? how many people lost their lives to bring those stones over here, just to go into his mouth.

Janice-Marie: Smith said...

i don't think he had a perfect set of teeth. He broke his jaw a year before he wrote his first album.

Kanye's teeth were already fake; he simply had the veneers removed and replaced with this diamond encrusted mess. (He was in a bad auto accident several years ago and lost most of his teeth a well as broke his jaw, which he had to have wired shut for some time.)

MCH said...

LOL @ #kanyeShrugs :)

@__-__=__ said...
I think I've only seen him in interviews on Ellen but he always comes across as fairly likeable. Maybe a little cocky but not over the top like we've seen him other times.
Did you see where he claimed he'll never go on another awards show again? Mmm-hmm...

The teeth are ridiculous...

I never heard about his car accident!

NYer said...

Given his rumored bent, kind of a new take on "coming into money"...
