The behind the scenes shots of Kanye & Kim Kardashian West’s Balmain shoot give us a peek at how a photoshoot with the fashion loving couple goes. Check ’em inside, plus Kanye telling folks Kim has dated “broke black guys” before….

That sexy recent Balmain shoot featuring The Wests also had some sweet moments behind the scenes. And sweet for Kim and Kanye means lots of oohs and ahhs at each other’s outfits….and staring at each other in adoration.

The couple let us in on what it’s like to get fitted and taped and tucked and pulled to get the perfect shots. And Kanye didn’t mind watching his wife squeeze into the skin tight looks. (You can splurge on Kim’s Balmain stretch sheer caged viscose top HERE.)

Meanwhile, over at the BET Honors show where Kanye picked up the Visionary Award this weekend, he gave an interesting acceptance speech that definitely had tongues wagging.

After his wife (and others) appeared in a video speaking about him, Kanye took the stage to accept his award and challenged those who have an issue with their marriage. Particularly those who believe she has a knack for choosing men who elevate her fame status in one way or another. Even more particularly, rich and famous black men.

He said:

“At the barbershop… I used to hear people always talking about, ‘Man you know when an entertainer get on, of course you know he gon’ go and get a white girl and blah blah blah and a white girl gon’ get a rich black dude.’

But I wanna say that my wife has dated broke black dudes. It got nothing to do with the money.”

Oh? He further went on to reveal that Kim’s late father Robert Kardashian, even told her she would have a black child one day.

Yes, this was said. The BET Honors air February 23rd.
