I can see it now: a hip-hop artist with a t-shirt that reads “too cool to be poor.”
The shirt is totally blinged out: it’s a white t-shirt, but the entire background is covered in small diamonds. The message is spelled out in rubies, sapphires, and emeralds, depending on what color the celebrity prefers.
It won’t be long before malls are crowded with rhinestone imitators.
And there’s a response shirt. A pre-distressed black shirt, pre-stained with seams ripped at the shoulders. Apparently hand-written, the shirt is scrawled with the message “Too cool to be rich.”
