T-Pain: "Diamonds Are Worthless" and "Weddings Fucking Suck"

Illustration for article titled T-Pain: Diamonds Are Worthless and Weddings Fucking Suck

The Fader asked 11 musicians to tell the origin stories of their favorite jewelry and T-Pain appropriately went in on diamonds (which agree because how you really gonna know for sure your rock isn't a conflict diamond???).

T-Pain tells Fader:

Diamonds are fucking worthless. Let's talk about that! Diamonds are worthless! Like, if diamonds are supposed to cost as much as they do, there shouldn't be as many of them as there is. They should be a lot more rare. Like, platinum shouldn't cost as much as it does, there's so much of that. None of this shit should cost as much as it does, but for some reason we keep thinking that we're supposed to pay more for black rocks than we should the shiny ones because they're newer.

And then the rapper appropriately went in on the wedding-industrial complex:

And weddings, wedding fucking suck, on the first day what we spend the rest of our lives together, let's get rid of all our money. Haha, sorry, rant. Diamonds, my ass…miles a night...glass! That's what you can put in your goddamn chain, looks exactly the same. Costs a lot less."

I.... agree with T-Pain. Huh. I never understood that about weddings. Like lets put a down payment on a house, not host a expensive-ass dinner for all our friends.
