Lil Uzi Vert Is Obsessed With Marilyn Manson—And Now Has a $100,000 Chain to Prove It
He picked up the Mickey Mouse-Manson piece at Coachella.
Lil Uzi Vert is probably a bigger Marilyn Manson fan than most 22-year-olds you know. The "XO TOUR Lif3" rapper, who was just two when "The Beautiful People" was charting, has been open about his obsession in interviews—but now he has some expensive hardware to prove it.
Uzi took the Coachella stage over the weekend, and picked up a sparkly, diamond-encrusted chain to honor Manson. Hip-hop jeweler Ben Baller made him the 100 carat VS diamond spiked choker bike chain, attached to a 55 carat black and white pendant of Manson. The Mouse House inspiration comes from a 2015 Paper Magazine cover story, which revealed the cuter, cuddlier side of the God of Fuck. Oh, and it only cost Uzi $100,000—which suddenly makes Kanye's new jewelry line seem like a bargain.
After it became available on the major streaming services, "XO TOUR Lif3" recently vaulted to No. 16 on the Billboard Hot 100. Below, you can watch footage of the song from Uzi's Coachella performance, along with a look at his truly one-of-a-kind chain.
.@liluzivert goin crazy again. This time I made him a 100 carat VS diamond spiked choker bike chain and a 55 carat black & white diamond Marilyn Manson pendant... This year has been insane. And this is in the top 3 piece I've ever made in my career and Uzi already has a piece in my top 5 as well. @IFANDCO IS THE ONLY SHOP making custom link chains with invisible locks!
