Kanye apparently wants to be Jaws from the Bond movies with US$850,000 titanium implants.

One of the most cartoonish of all the Bond villians during the cartoonish Roger Moore era was Jaw, the metal-toothed giant played by Richard Kiel. We saw him in The Spy Who Loved Me and Moonraker.

Kanye West, who is already nuttier, has decided that he need to go this route. He just paid US$850,000 for some new titanium dentures. Why? Because “they were more expensive that diamonds.”

The dentures, designed a fitted by two Beverly Hill dentists. One of them, Dr. Thomas Connelly (“The Father of Diamond Dentistry“), told The Daily Mail “Ye was a pleasure to work with every step of the process. His vision for designing unique art transcends the dental progression. The marriage of his vision with dental science has created a new look that is epic!”

To be clear, he did not have any teeth removed. These are more of a grill than anything. Still, it’s dumb, right?
