Rapper Kanye West has replaced his bottom teeth with diamonds.

The 33-year-old star has stunned his army of fans by having his real teeth removed by a dentist and inserting the diamonds, believed to be worth over €1m.

Initially, he was believed to have just slipped a diamond-encrusted gumshield over his teeth but he revealed his bizarre new look on ‘The Ellen DeGeneres’ show.

“I just thought diamonds were cooler,” he said.

“It's really my real teeth. I replaced my bottom row of teeth. I guess there's just certain things that rock stars are supposed to do.”

The show was Kanye's first TV interview since he famously interrupted Taylor Swift's acceptance speech at the 2009 MTV VMAs.
