Just when you thought athletes and music performers had completely run out of ideas about how to blow their money, Kanye West dug a little deeper.
The rapper, who is known for boorish and controversial behavior as much as he is his music (taking the microphone from Taylor Swift at the 2099 MTV Music Awards and saying that Beyonce was more deserving of the award that Swift won), replaced his bottom enameled teeth with a row of gold and diamond implants to create a shiny new smile.
He posted a picture of his mouth on Twitter.com, writing, "My teeth are real diamonds... these are not fronts... I replaced my bottom row of teeth with diamonds." West is known for his deep-thought Tweets.
West showed off his expensive new look in an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show this week and told the TV host why he felt he needed to replace his teeth. He says, "I just thought the diamonds were cooler."
It's his money.
