Lil Uzi Vert’s Alter Ego, Leslie, Makes Their Debut In Thailand: Watch

While many of our favourite artists were in California for Coachella this weekend, others found themselves much further east on the globe. 2023 marked the first ever Rolling Loud event to take place in Asia, with Cardi B, Chris Brown, and finally, Travis Scott headlining the festival in Thailand from Thursday (April 13) to Saturday (April 15). Others on the lineup include Sheck Wes, Centra Cee, Offset, Rubi Rose, Rick Ross, DaBaby, Waka Flocka Flame, Rae Sremmurd, and Lil Uzi Vert, who lit the crowd up ahead of the Invasion of Privacy rap diva's finale on the first night of performances.

During their time in the city, "The Way Life Goes" hitmaker made sure to enjoy the many attractions it has to offer – including indulging in the local delicacy of eating a cockroach. Rather than step out in their usual look, however, Uzi took the opportunity to introduce their alter ego, Leslie to the world. Their hair is obviously emo-inspired, and their outfit of choice hints at the impending arrival of the long-awaited Pink Tape project, which LUV has been working on for some time now.

Later in their photo dump, Lil Uzi showed photos of Leslie enjoying their time by the beach. With a mask covering the lower half of their face and a drastically altered appearance, many fans couldn't help but poke fun at the Philly native's post in the comments. "N*gga looking like somebody emo auntie," one troll wrote. "Uzi looking like [they] just joined Panic! at the Disco," another quipped. "I thought that was someone's grandmother," someone else chimed in, obviously expressing their disdain for the alter ego.

Regardless of what haters have to say, the 27-year-old has always been known to march to the beat of their own drum. Earlier this month, Lil Uzi Vert unveiled a badass new tattoo spanning their entire forehead, which certainly got him plenty of attention and kudos for sitting through the pain.
