Recently Lil Uzi Vert took to Instagram to change his pronouns to “they/them.” It’s clear that his long-time girlfriend, city girl member JT, is riding with them. The City Girl rapper quoted a tweet on Wednesday, July, 21st correcting herself referring to Uzi as “They.”
According to Hot New Hip Hop, JT took to Twitter to make a joke about her man Lil Uzi, saying, “My man said all I do is get my nails & lashes done, damn he’s catching on ….who’s hiring?” She then later came back, quoting her tweet to correct herself adding, “THEY*.”
