Lil Uzi Vert continues to remain the center of attention for pushing male fashion boundaries. At the Billboard Music Awards on Sunday night, he let the world know how unbothered he was by the critics. He did so in his self-proclaimed “good Valentino” shirt. “The good stuff!” he declared.
Regardless of the backlash, he wants you know his fashion choices ain't cheap and his white Valentino shirt (which brought just as much controversy as this pink-and-black one) came with a $2,400 price tag!
When Sway asked him how he felt about people calling his clothing “feminine,” Lil Uzi, with a little hesitation, said, “You know what it is? They’ve never felt these fabrics before! That’s all it is.”
OK, if that isn't a genuine appreciation for fashion, then what is?
Basically, Vert is saying people hate because they just don't know. For him, he's never felt good quality clothing and now he won't go back. It's actually true what they say. Lil Uzi Vert, I'm with you. When the haters can drop $2,400 on the good stuff, they will shut up. Until then, everyone can stay mad.
