When rich kids go and live in poverty for the experience , to prove they are artists, musicians , for entertainment , feel like they are connected to real life , but usually get money from mom, dad, uncle, to exist. And they can leave it anytime they want and go back to the upper middle class and upper class milieu live off of wealthy parents, relatives, friends . As usual they usually go and work in finance and banking and screw the common people . A song by Pulp called Common People is an example in the lyrics .
How's that old ex rich girlfriend of yours doing ?
2: Well she went slumming it in downtown Detroit . She would run around without any shoes and clothes and give services to johns . She then had her daddy bail her out a few months later . Now she's working as a financier, in derivatives , offshoring, writing loans to people who can't afford the mortgage and the like
