Rapper Lil Uzi Vert is behaving very erratically and it has been evident on his Twitter account where he went and made several tweets suggesting he is now bleaching his skin, similar to what Michael Jackson and Vybz Kartel did.
The shocking behaviour was noticed after the “Eternal Atake” artiste changed his Twitter profile picture to that of the pop icon on Wednesday, then proceeded to tweet some very strange things.
In one of his strange tweets, Uzi Vert wrote “Bleaching my skin need umbrella” however before the entertainer said that he changed his Twitter display picture to a photo of incarcerated Dancehall artiste Vybz Kartel who is well known for his role in the culture of bleaching, and the pigment removal that he also carried out on himself.
In another weird tweet, the rapper wrote on his Twitter account; “Oh yea announces I don’t know a person on earth @ all brain been itchy … so if you know me and I reintroduce myself don’t get offended Thank you so much signed Boop”. If you should visit the rapper’s Twitter page at this point you will see that he has Lil Boop as the new name he plans to go by which leaves one to question if he is serious about this strange behaviour.
That tweet alone plus a video he posted of himself in the studio, can certainly verify that the “XO Tour Lif3” artiste is very serious about changing his skin colour so we will have to just wait to see if he continues to go through with the colour change, or changes his mind from such a move.
What was not known though is the fact that Lil Uzi Vert was a fan of Vybz Kartel and in reality, that means a lot in Jamaica.
As for the 26-year-old rapper though, it is not the first time he has shown strange behaviour while being fully conscious of it as just last year he implanted a 24 million dollar diamond in his forehead which was eventually torn out after a performance by him at the “Rolling Loud” festival.
