People pleeze! MikeJames i agree with your statement wholy. I can't stand the word Ghetto Fabulous or Bling,Bling, As a black/mix woman i would totally offended if someone even spoke to me about that word, not only is it COMMON and describes a grade of people. I do think that when "Ghetto Fabulous" is mentioned the words - rough-neck springs to mind, and im sure im not the only one that think like this. I agree that for some reason, designers/stylists (with their own alterior motive) do use rappers to advertise and make more famous their logos and labels, whilst not being a big rap fan at all, i can see the appeal. Oria you and I are so ON THE SAME WAVELENGTH! As for Von Dutch clothing , as Simon Cowell from Pop Idol would say " So what, nothing special, no biggie"
