"Now I ain't sayin' she a gold digger..."
Kanye West received the Visionary Award at a taping for the 2015 BET Honors on Saturday and decided to use his stage (literally and metaphorically) to clarify any stigmas that may have been thrust upon him since marrying Kim Kardashian. Since tying the knot with her, the "Gold Digger" rapper apparently has faced many jokes and criticisms about his wife maybe looking like one.
But like any good husband, Kanye defended himself and his wife when he accepted the award.
"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," he clarified. "It got nothing to do with the money."
