Self expression is extremely important for artists. It’s their mechanism for creating music, delivering visuals and filling up their 140 character count on Twitter. But what happens when they’ve decided that they want to make a literal fashion statement? Well, they usually find some article of clothing that delivers the message loud and clear. It’s a sly and easy tactic used to stir the pot by letting us normal folk know that they’re thinking about something and willing to share it.
Today we decided to gather up some of the best instances when singers simply couldn’t resist the urge to give us a piece of their mind. And yes, it’s a sight to see … err, I mean, read.

Future had no problem showing support for the Eric Garner movement when he donned two different “I Can’t Breathe” sweaters during his “Mad Luv” music video. Peep the first sweater at the 1:37 mark.

We all know that Taylor Swift isn’t afraid to speak (or sing) her mind, but this reference is straight-up strange. After a Tumblr post with a photo of the then-teen singer went viral for a WTF-worthy caption, Tay Tay liked the post and then rocked a shirt that made the whole situation even more hilarious.
We all know that Miley Cyrus loves hitting the bong, but it looks like she might love Justin Bieber just as much. After Bieber was reportedly caught smoking a blunt, the world went haywire. Luckily, he has Miley to back him up (or spark him up) based off her “Reefer Fever” shirt.
Drake took free promotion to new heights when he showed up to the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards, wearing a jersey that included the title of his third studio album. It’s all about the marketing, folks!
