My bling-bling theory

I have a theory about why bling-bling is so popular with modern day rappers. And watching MTV or any similar outlet for music videos will probably show you that I'm right.

This is my theory: most rappers are not very attractive, so they have to make up for it somehow. And I suspect if you're sufficiently blinded by the bling-bling you wont notice how they look.

Although in some cases the bling seems to defy its purpose: some rappers sport gold/silver/diamonds on their teeth and someone please explain to me how that's supposed to be attractive!? Or maybe it's to hide the fact that they are wearing braces??

Bling-bling is pretty stupid if you ask me. Who cares that they wear designer clothes (some of them even wear their OWN design, yuck!) or diamonds as big as the Ritz? Is that measure of intelligence??
