GRAMMYS 2018

Lil Uzi Vert Says Going to the Grammys Is “Whatever,” He Just Wants to Go Shopping

It’s all in a day’s work for the “Bad and Boujee” singer.

There are two types of Grammy nominees in the world: Those who can’t contain their excitement on the red carpet, and those who can take or leave the whole ordeal. Lil Uzi Vert, nominated for Best New Artist and Best Rap Performance for his feature on “Bad and Boujee,” is definitely the latter. On his way into Sunday night’s ceremony, the rapper chatted with E! News’ Giuliana Rancic and proved just how apathetic he apparently felt toward not only the red carpet preshow but also the entire Grammys machine.

When Rancic asked how he was feeling before the show began, undoubtedly expecting to hear him gush about how exciting the Grammys are, Lil Uzi Vert instead responded, “I’m feeling normal.” Rancic attempted to push him, asking if he was excited about his nominations, but he deadpanned, “Uh, this is normal. This is my life, so it’s whatever.” The “Money Longer” artist did perk up a little when Rancic asked how he would react if he won Best New Artist later in the night. “If I win, I’m just going to think about everything I’m going to buy the next day,” he said. “You know I like to shop. So, shopping.” He also expanded upon what exactly he would buy: “Gosha [Rubchinskiy] just dropped a new collab with Burberry, and it’s very nice. I got to get everything.”

Another of Lil Uzi Vert’s stoic answers to Rancic’s enthusiastic questions is already sweeping the Internet. Before she let him go, Rancic asked what’s next for the artist, who thought for a second before responding, “Waking up. Eating some Pop-Tarts.” Same, Uzi.
