Lil Uzi Vert has defined why they modified their pronouns to they/them, however admitted the act didn’t take any “bravery.”
The Philadelphia rapper spoke about this transition in a brand new interview with 032c journal and stated they took loads of time to study gender identities earlier than making the transfer.
“No, I never hesitated,” they stated. “But I did take my time to learn as much as I could about this before I was able to proceed. Taking the time to figure out who you are is a big part of what it means to be alive. Once you figure out whether you’re here with it, there with it, or both, you’re not alone anymore.
“This community offers access to a certain kind of support that you might not have had [previously during] your entire life because you weren’t raised that way. I come from a household where it’s not okay to be ‘non’ anything.”
Uzi continued by dismissing the notion that they’re “brave” for saying the change, which was quietly finished on Instagram final summer season.
“No, because bravery has only a ten percent chance of living,” they stated. “I’m not brave at all. I just think a good product [is] a good product. Think about fashion: gay and trans designers are some of the biggest talents out there, and gangster-ass guys wear their stuff without a thought. What you make is what matters, not how you identify.”
Elsewhere within the interview, Lil Uzi Vert revealed that they spent seven months in rehab, and was shocked at how efficient it was.
“I’m lucky to have people in my life who truly care about me and my well-being. Specifically, Desiree Perez, who helped me get into this program,” they stated, referring to the CEO and co-founder of JAY-Z’s Roc Nation, to whom they’re signed. “I didn’t want to do it, but I had to — and I can say now that it was a great thing to do.”
“I spent seven months in rehab. The first month and a half were hard, but after that, it was easy, because the people there became my family. They showed me so many different outlets and ways to cope with life. We did a lot of group talks, a lot of writing on whiteboards. I was so sure that it wasn’t going to work, but surprisingly it’s pretty effective.”
Regardless of Uzi’s candidness within the interview, it was the “Satanic” cowl artwork that bought folks speaking.
