Lil Uzi Vert has proven to be one of the most eclectic artists in the entire world. Overall, they are beloved by their fans. Even if the releases haven't been super consistent, they are still given the benefit of the doubt. Moreover, they are given the time to work on projects because each album is quality. Although some get impatient, the thought of a new Uzi project certainly soothes the mind. Right now, their project called The Pink Tape is reportedly on the way, and fans are looking forward to this body of work.

Recently, Uzi got to be part of the cover story of 032c Magazine, where they delivered a plethora of insights in their life. For instance, they even revealed why they changed their pronouns. “But I did take my time to learn as much as I could about this before I was able to proceed," Lil Uzi Vert said. "Taking the time to figure out who you are is a big part of what it means to be alive. Once you figure out whether you’re here with it, there with it, or both, you’re not alone anymore."

Moreover, Uzi explained why they opted to get a massive pink diamond in the middle of their forehead. As it turns out, is all because of the show Steven Universe. “I used to watch this show called Steven Universe, and one of the characters in the show had a pink diamond in his belly button," Lil Uzi Vert began. "I didn’t have my belly button pierced, so I decided to put it on my forehead. That’s my favorite cartoon — it’s really that simple.”

Uzi has always had a passion for cartoons and media of that nature, so this should not be too much of a surprise. However, Uzi did get the piece removed as it was posing a threat to their health. Regardless, it was cool while it lasted. Let us know what you thought of the diamond, in the comments below. Additionally, stay tuned to HNHH for updates from around the music world.
