You all know how I feel about James Franco (not good). And you can’t say I didn’t warn you with the headline of this post — rapper and “Spring Breakers” inspiration Riff Raff is trying to pull some art world shit, and it is not pretty. Clad in a track suit, stone-washed denim and some press-n-curls, Mr. Raff took a break from “making rap,” getting diamond gifts from Soldier Boy and appearing on “From Gs to Gents” to head down to Miami Art Basel and heckle art world snobs, like some poor man’s Hennessey Youngman. This is the sad, sad result. [YouTube]
Every winter, artistas and galleristas gather down in Miami to celebrate the newest and next in the art world. If you’re at Art Basel Miami art fair, chances are you’re rich or famous, or some combination of both. But having lots of money or celebrity doesn’t always equal sartorial splendor.
