The musical genius turned fashion genius turned awards show activist turned husband turned father turned…oh never mind, created a line in collaboration with Adidas for NYFW Fall 2015 and it sucks. Listen. has never professed to be a fashion blog°. We’re not*.

The homeless and severely disadvantages are forced to wear clothes sometimes tattered and worn. Given the choice, they would rather wear new and neat clothing. You would choose to wear such clothing and pay an exorbitant fee for it to boot. You’re insane. This is not debatable.

Have I missed the “looking homeless is now chic” fashion memo? Please. Explain this.

    First, I know those models are mad they have to wear that mess. How did he sell Adidas on this? How? Kim is sporting those rags like it’s the hotness. Nori is the only one that was REAL. Nori showed up and showed out at that so-called fashion show. This line gives me nightmares.

    • Aaaaahahahahahahahahahaha! Em, you killed me. I’m dead. Plan the fune.
