In history, there have always been people that have more money than they know what to do with, and Music Producer and R&B star Kanye West may now join their ranks.
The always bombastic star began making headlines, yet again, when he dropped by the Ellen DeGeneres show to share his new music, and his new look this past week. It seems that West had his bottom teeth replaced with diamonds set in white gold.
Not a grill, he assured DeGeneres, rather his bottom row of teeth has apparently been permanently replaced with diamonds. “I just thought it was cooler,” West shared on the talk show. “It’s just something rock stars are supposed to do.”
Some have speculated that the diamonds are not permanent, but instead some part of a promotional stunt for his new album. However, West, who had been laying low in Italy and Japan since last year’s MTV Awards controversy, debuted his new look on Twitter in July before he returned to the country.
“Diamond teeth…Another reason to smile,” West posted under a picture of his new million dollar smile.
One consolable thought that is being passed around on the internet, was that West’s teeth were already damaged during a car accident in 2002 that left the musician with a broken jaw that had to be wired shut.
However, West recently told “Vanity Fair” that he just like diamonds. “I didn’t feel like having to take them out all the time,” he told the magazine.
In other unbelievable diamond news, a restaurant owner had plans in the works to present Kim Kardashian with a diamond encrusted cake worth $1 million for her 30th birthday.
Restaurateur Nino Selimaj, the mastermind behind the birthday cake, has been known to turn food into publicity stunt before and once offered a $1,000 pizza, topped with caviar and lobster tails, at his restaurant in Manhattan.
Kardashian, who is currently promoting a diamond engagement ring give away around the country, politely turned down the offer when she caught wind of Selimaj plans. The reality TV star took to the blog to assure fans that she would not accept a cake that expensive. “Making a million dollar birthday cake is just ridiculous,” she wrote on Thursday. “I’d rather they give me a cupcake and donate the rest of the money to the homeless!”
