P.S. Martin Shkreli Is An Artist

"What I'm doing right now in the media...that's what art is."

The hedge fund manager turned pharma CEO turned public enemy number one turned guy arrested on fraud charges this morning just wants to get one thing straight.

“To me, what I’m doing right now in the media,” Shkreli continues, “raising prices, all this shit, believe what you want, but it’s interesting. It gets people talking. At the end of the day, that’s what art is. I don’t know if I can translate the shit into rap or not, but I’ll try… In 500 years, they’re going to talk about rap the same way we talk about Shakespeare. I just want to throw my hat in the ring, that's all. I don’t want to make money.”
