Bey and Jay: Letting their shirts do the talking


If you want to get your message across, then wear it on your chest. At least, that's what Jay Z and Beyoncé were (probably) thinking when they both stepped out wearing bold slogan T-shirts yesterday.

After all, they are two of the most photographed people in the world, so if they want to spread the word then all they have to do is wear a T-shirt knowing that within hours it would have to be seen by millions.

And so we're pleased to see that the messages Bey and Jay are peddling are positive ones. Jay Z chose to send a message to Israel and Palestine – as well as the rest of the English-speaking world – with a T-shirt with the word 'Peace' emblazoned across it in English, Hebrew and Arabic.

Beyonce meanwhile opted for a shirt that read 'Never forget to say thank you,' which is something we can all do with remembering, and not a bad lesson for Beyonce and Jay Z's three-year-old daughter Blue Ivy to learn either.

Want to say something with your T-shirt? Here's some of the best slogan shirts on the high street…
