"I was going through an existential crisis of sorts. I went from being basically broke to making tons of money in a very short period of time as my career started to take off," he recounts. "It was thrilling but at the same time rather frightening. I didn't know who I was anymore and I didn't know how I was expected to act... Then one day I came across that shirt online and in an instant, it all became crystal clear. I bought one immediately."
The shirt has also gained a reputation amongst multimillionaire hip hop moguls including Kanye West, Jay Z and P Diddy. It has even been reported that Justin Bieber had received an "Infamous" shirt of his own as a birthday gift from his friend and mentor Usher.
The electronic dance music community has bore witness to a very pink (and clearly very rich) Deadmau5 donning the shirt at a recent festival in Las Vegas, complete with matching pink dollar-sign mouse head.
Iconic radio personality and America's Got Talent judge Howard Stern even made a jive on the show about how he had been contemplating a purchase, to the reception of thunderous applause.

Though the "Infamous $1,000 Pink Shirt" is becoming a popular novelty among the upper echelons of society, there are a number of "average joes" who aren't quite as enthusiastic about the product.
Sam Hivermeyer of Bridgeport, OR states, "I think the whole idea is stupid and wasteful. You can find much better things to spend your money on. What about donating it instead?"
Ruth-Anne McKinsey of Tampa, FL reports via Twitter: "$1,000 for a f***ing shirt? Stay classy, America #PinkShirt #YeaRight".
While the shirt continues to stir up a noteworthy amount of buzz online, DubstepLife have taken it upon themselves to provide a genuine disclaimer for anyone considering making the rite of passage into the League of the Infamous Pink. According to the website, the shirt is "...INTENDED FOR ONLY THE ELITE AND FINANCIALLY-SOUND." They proceed to admonish, in stern words of full caps lock, "WE TAKE NO RESPONSIBILITY FOR RECKLESS SPENDING. IF YOU CANNOT AFFORD THIS SHIRT, PLEASE DO NOT BUY IT."
While many of us struggle to save just enough cash for an imitation designer handbag or a semi-realistic Armani knockoff, the financial elite casually dish out a handful of pocket change that likely amounts to more than our weekly paychecks, simply to dress in a pink T-shirt.
But not just any T-shirt. This one is pure "Infamous," topped off with a healthy dose of "exclusive." They buy them for no reason other than the fact that they can.
But mostly because you can't.
