Meanwhile, 26-year-old Woods is also making headlines for his forehead diamond, which cost $24 million. He told Fat Joe he did not want to misplace it, so he implanted it in his forehead. “I’m Lil Uzi. I’m turnt up. So $24 million on a ring is the stupidest idea because I’m gonna look down and that ring ain’t gon’ be there,” he told Fat Joe, reports Complex. “I know me. I wake up in odd places and different sceneries.”
Woods said the people who helped with the piercing tried to convince him it was a bad idea, but he still went through with it. He also insisted he is not erratic and will not join the 27 Club, a group of musicians who died at age 27. “I don’t think that’s going to happen because come on, bro, we’re in reality,” he said. “I’m not scared to die, but who the f— wants to die?… If I wanted to die, Joe, I’m pretty sure I’d be dead. I know how to make a hit record and buy a $24 million diamond, I’m pretty sure I would be dead if I wanted to die.”
