Fans rushing to Instagram to check out Lil Uzi Vert’s new haircut may be disappointed as the musician’s account appears to be down as of Monday, January 23, 2023.
But, you needn’t have to let curiosity kill you as we have found the picture where he’s showing off his new hairdo. That, unsurprisingly, has caught a lot of attention.
The rapper made headlines a couple of months ago by changing his pronouns on Instagram to they/them, but never confirmed if he identifies himself as non-binary.
Lil Uzi Vert gets a new haircut
A newly surfaced picture of Lil Uzi shows him in a completely different look as he appears to not only have cut his hair but also had it straightened.
It isn’t clear where the picture was first shared as the rapper’s Instagram isn’t currently active, but several media outlets and fans have managed to get hold of the photo that’s now going viral on Twitter.
Lil Uzi is seen looking away from the camera while covering the new hairdo with a beanie, underneath which you can see his straight hair.
While he isn’t wearing the diamond on their forehead anymore, the rapper’s face still has several piercings with studs inserted in them.
Fans call it an ’emo’ look
Lil Uzi’s new look is giving fans emo vibes and many have noted that they were taken back in time on seeing the rapper’s hairdo.
The typical Emo fashion has been associated with straight, jet-black hair with long bangs, which the rapper is seen sporting in his picture.
Reacting to the hairdo, one fan said: “That Lil Uzi Vert emo new look tweet took me back to high school with my sister jamming to alt-rock music. I had to listen to it for nostalgia’s sake!”
“I love LilUzi Vert … noEemo vibes on this Good Monday,” said another.
“If Lil Uzi brings back the Emo boy phase I really might fold. I’m not even gonna lie, ” tweeted another.
Rapper changed his pronouns
Lil Uzi sent fans into a tizzy by changing his pronouns to They/Them on Instagram days after International Non-Binary People’s Day on July 14, 2022.
Pronouns are basically how we identify ourselves besides our names.
According to NPR, nonbinary is a term used to refer to people “who do not describe themselves or their genders as fitting into the categories of man or woman.”
While the rapper is yet to explain what the description on the bio could have meant, fans are convinced that he came out as non-binary.
