Kim Kardashian shopping at Barneys of New York in a revealing outfit

Apparently socialite Kim Kardashian isn’t getting enough attention. The buxom blond was seen shopping at Barneys NY in Beverly Hills wearing a revealing outfit that seemed ready to burst at the seams. Kim’s perky twins were hard to miss. The only question left to ask is how much did she pay to get them refurbished?

Jay Z

Bosses at high end retailer Barneys released a statement apologizing to rapper Jay Z following media reports of racial profiling incidents involving black consumers at the New York location.

2 young black shoppers filed separate complaints accusing Barneys of racially profiling them after they made purchases of a $2,500 Celine handbag and a $350 Ferragamo belt.

But instead of apologizing to the shoppers who were racially profiled, Barneys apologized to Jay Z for inconveniencing him.

“We deeply regret that these recent events have distracted from the great work of the Shawn Carter Foundation, and we offer our sincere apologies to Mister Carter,” said Barneys CEO Mark Lee.
