There's a song about it and many shirts with the saying "Too dumb for New York, Too ugly for LA." I don't know why people would buy a shirt that is basically says they're not that smart or attractive, but I guess they do. Anyways, what do you all think of this statement? Is it total BS? Or is there some truth to it? Or a whole lot of truth?

Your question makes no sense and is too vague, unless you are asking about a specific person.

I couldn't vote because I couldn't find the "I don't care" option.

la is stereotypically vain. but i always thought new york was stereotypically all about money.
boston is thought of more as being a nerd (but i guess its not as popular as new york therefore it wont be quoted on songs and t-shirts) ?

No, a lot of dumb and ugly people in both cities. Similar to every city, just on a larger scale.

We don't know you, so it's impossible to vote in any meaningful way.

Default Ridiculous saying

This saying is yet another example of the dumbing-down of this society.

The person who started this "saying" obviously never had a conversation with your run of the mill New Yorker..

I can't speak for NY since I've never been there, but there might be some truth to the LA beautiful people stereotype.
In So. Cal, lots of gyms/healthclubs, great weather for exercising year round, peer pressure to look good and thin, and a ton of plastic surgeons if you can afford one.

There are plenty of brilliantly smart people in LA as well as very good looking people in NYC.
