Why would Questlove wear this shirt ?

So...i don't know if I missed something, but to me, this isn't cool. So why does he think it is?

It's a hilarious shirt, that's why. One of the funniest I've ever seen. If you don't get it, you don't get it. No big deal.

The pic is old. These shirts have been around for years. It's a joke, and I think they're funny. lol

It's an insensitive joke. Pretty tacky if you ask me, if you are a fan of the man, but I think QuestLove is just trying to be funny.

The shirt reminds me of a story. Went to a reastruant with my mom one time, they have a photo of Michael Jackson on the wall, she says, look, it's Prince. I had to say, no Mom, that's Michael Jackson.

And that's the point of that shirt. It's being ironic.

Well I think it fails, but then again I'm not an MJ fan. Too many people seem to think if you're a fan of Prince you're also an MJ fan (and probably vice versa).

Ironically the Prince and MJ community are now almost identical in regards to their sensitivity and utter blindness. Once upon a time you could be critical or joke about Prince without people feeling triggered.

Doesn't seem to be the case anymore.

Grow up.

True enough, but I've seen these shirts for sale with other "wrong" names on them like Michael Buble with Josh Grogan's name and vice versa. Also The Rolling Stones with The Beatles name and vice versa. I think it's meant as hipster irony.

A funny t-shirt. From what I remember, it was a mistake from another country and someone ended up selling them here. Pretty freaking funny.

There are a lot of funny things out there, including t-shirts, this isn't one of them. When they have those 'Clark Kent by night: and it's a picture of Batman...I don't think that's funny either. Seems dumb and moronic to me. shrug
