Lil Uzi Vert’s latest body piercing has fueled more chatter about their masculinity, but City Girls star JT isn’t here for the criticism aimed at her boyfriend.

Over the weekend, a photo surfaced online showing a shirtless Uzi — who adopted the gender-neutral pronouns “they/them” earlier this year — flaunting a small diamond stud in their belly button.



While the piercing seemingly put a smile on the Eternal Atake rapper’s face, others were less than impressed and took to social media to voice their opinions.

“Lil Uzi got his belly button pierced[.] damn can y’all let these women have something shat,” one Twitter user wrote, while another tweeted: “Lil Uzi about to have these boys thinking it’s cool to get their belly button pierced.”

After catching wind of such comments, JT jumped to Uzi’s defense on Sunday (October 2) with a series of tweets sticking up for her man, who she hailed as a “black rockstar.”

“Everytime MY n-gga do something he want to do y’all act amazed, that’s BEEN his aesthetic before me I guess this side more tuned in but let me tell y’all something he a black rockstar that does what he wants!” she wrote.

“Y’all think the way ppl dress & how they express themselves is what defines them sexually and that’s y’all problem now because it’s men who out here masculine as hell dress apart & can’t wait to get from round y’all to suck d*ck for amiris & I mean NO disrespect!”

She continued: “Uzi date me & we honestly have two different audiences so nothing bother me more then when he doing what he want y’all Tag me & say ‘THIS YOUR MAN’…yes hoe that’s MY man. MY good man, MY rich man, MY respectful man, MY lit man, MY successful black rockstar.

“Last last, I have my own money. STFU. I’m with him because I want to be. 🙂 he’s the best man ever better than alllll y’all n-ggas …let’s argue.”

Ironically, Lil Uzi Vert’s belly button piercing is relatively tame compared to their previous body modifications. Last year, the Philadelphia native had a pink diamond allegedly worth $24 million implanted in his forehead.

The costly implant lasted just a few months, though, with Uzi claiming it got “ripped out” after they jumped into the crowd at Rolling Loud Miami that summer.



Baby Pluto has made some pretty drastic changes to the rest of their appearance of late. In June, they unveiled a massive oni mask chest tattoo and a giant samurai piece on their back, which covered up their old tattoos.

The following month, Uzi stepped out at Rolling Loud Miami rocking red-tipped liberty spikes on their head, drawing similarities to Tech N9ne. However, the Strange Music boss warned Uzi about the side-effects of such an extreme hairstyle.



“TRUST ME @liluzivert ! This is how this process ends,” Tech wrote on Instagram, juxtaposing an old photo of his spiky locks with his now-bald dome. “Real spill though!”
