Steel fangs, grills and prosthetics, like in Jaws. Kanye West and 5 other stars who shocked with a "metal" smile
What stars don't do to be covered by the media all over the world! When provocative outfits, extravagant makeup, or, for example, a shaved head don't work as a PR stunt, they move on... For example, rapper Kanye West lost his teeth in early 2024 and replaced them with "more expensive than diamonds" titanium dentures. He explained that he wanted to look like the villain from the James Bond movie Jaws.
Do you think it's a new idea to shock the audience with a "metal" smile? Not at all! What other celebrities have sacrificed their dental health for shock value? Find out in the OBOZ.UA article.
In August 2013, singer Madonna showed off her golden grills during a visit to the Rome branch of the Hard Candy fitness studio chain. Unfortunately, this was not the only case of her prank. In June 2022, the celebrity visited The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon wearing silver overlays, and during an interview, she explained why she makes them part of her looks: "I just like the way it looks. It's a piece of jewelry for my mouth. And I also have ugly teeth."
2. Rita Ora
Another star who loves exquisite dental jewelry is singer Rita Ora. In October 2013, at Paris Fashion Week, she smiled for photographers, flaunting graphite overlays on her lower jaw. In 2021, the beauty showed her creativity again: she attended the MTV VMAs in New York with teeth decorated with a golden letter "R," a miniature zipper, and black gemstones.
3. Katy Perry
The American singer and songwriter Katy Perry not only appears on the red carpet, but also in her music videos with massive grills on her teeth. You've probably noticed the diamond jewelry in the Dark Horse music video, filmed in 2014. Or, for example, a golden gemstone overlay at the MTV VMAs in 2013.
4. Justin Bieber
Canadian pop singer Justin Bieber also follows modern trends. In 2018, he wore grills on his lower jaw for his own wedding, which looked impressive with a strict suit. And in 2022, he decorated both jaws with sparkling jewelry.
5. Jaden Smith
At the Met Gala 2017, American actor and rapper Jaden Smith stunned everyone with his smile with steel fangs. Well, perhaps this and other similar shocking images will help the young artist to rise in his career as quickly as possible (as his star father Will Smith managed to do).
