It's time to remember that the stars are living lives that are nothing like our own! Let's start with one of the wildest stories we've ever seen on Wonderwall.com — courtesy of rapper Lil Uzi Vert. The music star truly committed to showing off bling in a new way when he announced that he'd implanted a $24 million natural pink diamond in his forehead. Yes, instead of having the massive diamond incorporated into a ring or necklace, he opted to have it put in his forehead on Feb. 2. When asked if it cost more than his car, he said, "Yes my Bugatti can't even pay for it… all my cars together, plus home." He later took to social media to share the proof and has since posted plenty of photos and videos showing off the massive pink diamond that now rests between his eyebrows.
