Saweetie caused quite a stir on Sunday after casually posting a video of herself demonstrating how she likes to eat a burger while simultaneously wearing huge press-on nails at a McDonald’s in Italy.
The 30-year-old hip-hop diva was forced to rely on her fingertips and knuckles to carry out the basic task of pouring French fries on top of her open-faced burger and then topping the food pile with a squeeze of barbecue sauce.
Saweetie (born Diamanté Quiava Valentin Harper) carefully placed the top of the bun on the fries, even though some fans worried she had forgotten to remove the wooden stick which originally held the burger together.
The NoCal native – who boasts 22.9M social media followers – then took a big bite and captioned her Instagram slideshow: ‘There’s no place like ME.’
In the comments, fans compared Saweetie’s icy aquamarine talons to Freddy Krueger’s metal clawed-glove and called them ‘tacky’ and ‘ridiculous’ and ‘just way too long.’
Back in 2021, the two-time Grammy nominee was a full-blown brand ambassador for the 83-year-old fast-food chain complete with her custom meal with ‘Saweetie and Sour Sauce.’
Saweetie even posted a TikTok of herself demonstrating the best way to eat McNuggets on top of fries while smothered with her custom sauce and barbecue sauce.
‘The longer the nails, the easier to reach the last French fry,’ the Shot O’ Clock rapper said.
‘Now all my girls with long nails know that’s the truth, okay?’
And in 2020, Saweetie showcased ‘the correct way to make ramen’ which entailed Nissin Cup Noodles with extra salt, Tabasco hot sauce, straining the noodles, and then pouring them into an open bag of Flamin’ Hot Cheetos.
The MTV Video Music Awards pre-show host was in Italy, wearing little more than a bikini, to appear at designer Philipp Plein’s SS/24 presentation during Milan Fashion Week on Saturday.
While there, Saweetie took a spin around the carnival ride at the center of the fashion show to, once again, prove how able-bodied she is while wearing long nails.

It’s hard to believe Saweetie used to play volleyball for the University of Southern California before graduating in 2016 with a Bachelor of Arts (BA) in communications.
However, when Gabrielle Union’s first cousin once-removed played around with a volleyball in an Instastory last Tuesday, she made sure to remove her press-on nails.
Saweetie – who who gets 8.6M monthly listeners on Spotify – isn’t scheduled to perform until January 13 at Arizona’s Desert Diamond Arena in Glendale.On the personal front, she’s been single since confirming the end of her two-year relationship with Migos rapper Quavo over his infidelity on March 19, 2021 via Twitter.
