QUOTE MSN:

The message to the youth of America was "You may be poor now, but one day you could be a millionaire and then you too can dress up like Mr T's gay friend."

Re: Bling - please make it stop

Absolutely spot on. The whole Bling thing shouts "look at me, I'm better than you".

The sting of bling is an undesirable thing, of that you can be sure.

"...each outdoing the other with the absurdity of what happens when luxury meets stupidity."

Priceless!!

Nice editorial indeed.

Very good indeed!

Although they've yet to get through to Akon who owns a diamond mine in South Africa (!) and told the Independent newspaper that he didn't believe in so-called "conflict diamonds" and that it was just a movie. (Perhaps someone should explain to the squeaky voiced dope that the Second World War wasn't just something Spielberg invented to spice up Schindler's List, too).




Priceless....literally!

Re: Bling - please make it stop

hahah that's brilliant.
Wasn't Akon the same talent-devoid rapper who picked up a teen boy and threw him off a stage, and fondled an underage girl?

Just epitomises the decadence of American pop culture when you consider people idolise a piece of s*** like that....
