I'd like to call myself cultured and not just because I travel a lot and see various hotel rooms. I love driving around, seeing what people on the street are wearing, I would even ask my driver to take me to a cool, young part of town for inspiration. If I went to Africa I would come back with tons of different things, because I truly wouldn't find those things anywhere else." [Chic Report]

PC Decoder Ring: I really love people who wear fashions of their own culture instead of trying to look like a albino chola like Gwen Stefani did. I'd like to call myself cultured (I read the Daily News once a week) and not just because I travel a lot and see various hotel rooms, but I'm usually on my back and staring at the ceiling. You can tell a lot about a country from looking out a window. I love driving around, seeing what people on the street are wearing, I would even ask my driver to take me to a cool, young part of town so I can gawk at the locals like they are animals in a zoo. Poor people are interesting. If I went to Africa I would come back with tons of different things that I'd send someone else out to buy, because I truly wouldn't find those things anywhere else. I'd also bring a shitload of Purell.
