The rich and famous don't really dress better than the rest of us. They just get away with looking ridiculous 'cause their shit's gaudier, flashier, and way more fucking expensive.
Take Kanye's getup the other night at his and Jay-Z's Watch the Throne gig in Miami. Dude was wearing a black leather pleated skirt over a pair of black leather skinny jeans, topped off with an absurdly oversized t-shirt of his own damn face. The whole shebang probably cost $10,000. But he still looked like a 13-year-old goth girl getting ready to crawl into her coffin for nighty-nights.
Or take NBA star and choke artist Lebron James's new special-edition Watch the Throne x Nike sneakers. Ostensibly, these things are shoes. But let's just cut the bullshit and call 'em hideous, $300 pieces of shit for your feet.
The world was introduced to LeBron's ridiculous kicks on Tuesday, October 15, at 9:46 p.m. when he tweeted a photo of his own size-15 feet stuffed into these fashion disasters, saying, "At the WTT concert with the WTT 9's on! Wow!! #OnlyRight"
He again celebrated this momentous occasion at 11:02 p.m., tweeting, "The WTT 9's has invaded the American Airlines Arena @kanyewest @S_C_ #epicmoment"

Thankfully, these Watch the Throne LeBron 9s (standard black body pimped out with pizza puke-colored laces, grandma-jacket-on-acid lining, and a stupid, spiky gold Watch the Throne brooch) aren't assigned for mass production in Nike's sweat shops anytime soon.
So LeBron's got 'em, Jay-Z's getting ready to regift his pair, and Kanye's probably rockin' them in a coffin right now.
Let's keep it that way ... The rest of us can live without blowing $300 (or more) on these pieces of shit for your feet.
