Lil Uzi Vert appeared to have a blast at Coachella.

Lil Uzi Vert, who performed at Coachella on Friday night, sold merch at the festival making a play on words of their pronouns as well as Eminem. The $40 black t-shirt features the word “THEMINEM” across the front. Uzi came out as using they/them pronouns back in July 2022.

Speaking with 032c magazine, last summer, they explained: “No, I never hesitated but I did take my time to learn as much as I could about this before I was able to proceed. 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. This community offers access to a certain kind of support that you might not have had [previously during] your entire life because you weren’t raised that way. I come from a household where it’s not okay to be ‘non’ anything.”

Elsewhere during the set, Uzi told fans: "Can I tell y'all a secret? I've been holding this in for a very long time. I'm pretty sure a lot of you already knew this. What I wanna tell y'all tonight is… I love y'all and I hope, no matter what, y'all love me the same way I love y'all." Be on the lookout for further updates on Lil Uzi Vert on HotNewHipHop.
