#ArtBaselProblems Is Now a Thing on Twitter

You know what's worse than finding out the Art Basel show you're at doesn't have an open bar?

Nothing. Absolutely nothing is worse than that.

This week Art Basel takes #FirstWorldProblems to a whole other level. Celebutantes and wannabe Miami hotshots have taken to complaining (ironically or not) on Twitter about how miserable a weekend full of art is making their lives. So we decided to do a little top ten roundup of the most ridiculous -- and, okay, funny -- #ArtBaselProblems.

Because having a job is so passé.

Define "need."

What exactly is a "Champagne cleanse," and why would you do it? Have you been binging on Dom Perignon? Maybe Moet? Certainly Cristal.

This one isn't a problem, so much as it is cure. Get over your Art Basel hangover with Will Smith's "Miami."
