Jay-Z currently has a line of Occupy Wall Street-inspired clothing but doesn't plan to share any of the profits with the protesters because it's not like he's making a statement or anything. He's just...I don't know what.

The rapper was recently seen wearing one of the shirts, which tweaks the phrase "Occupy Wall Street" by crossing out the "W" and adding an "S" to make it read "Occupy All Streets."
The protests, which started Sept. 17 in New York, have since spread to Los Angeles and other cities as demonstrators protest corporate greed and corruption.

A Rocawear spokesperson told the publication: "The 'Occupy All Streets' T-shirt was created in support of the 'Occupy Wall Street' movement. Rocawear strongly encourages all forms of constructive expression, whether it be artistic, political or social. 'Occupy All Streets' is our way of reminding people that there is change to be made everywhere, not just on Wall Street. At this time we have not made an official commitment to monetarily support the movement."


Joel McHale told Conan O'Brien that the Kardashians aren't big fans of his because he reminds them of that tiny, tiny reason they're famous:

"I bring up the thing that made Kim famous which is the sex tape with Ray J. Kim's mom would call E! much like an old lady neighbor going like, 'Your son's baseball landed in my window again', and they don't like it when we bring it up. I don't know why but we just say sex tape with Ray J all the time. And she calls and it's bad."

When O'Brien asked if it's because the Kardashians want people to forget about the tape, McHale quipped: "I'm promoting it. They make so much money off of it."

Jay-Z dicking people over to make his pockets fatter? Next thing you'll tell me is that water is wet and that the days of the week end with the letter Y.
