Some have called it “the swirl.” Others have called it “never going back.” Gwen Stefani, in “Long Way To Go” called it “snow [hitting] the asphalt.” Whatever you choose to call it, there’s no denying that interracial relationships are exciting. They bust through convention like a battering ram through the door of a burning apartment containing a little old lady and her cat.
According to the 2010 census, 1 out of every 10 American marriages is now interracial. That marks a 28 percent increase from the year 2000, most likely due to Jennifer Lopez’s highly publicized relationship with Ben Affleck at the beginning of the decade - just kidding.
In an episode of the tragically defunct ABC sitcom Happy Endings, black husband Brad says to his white wife Jane that their food order is lagging because they’re “black on blonde.” The above quoted Gwen Stefani song, with the use of its wonderful metaphor, is an outcry against the harsh criticisms mixed-race couples receive. Although we acknowledge the inherent politics of mixed-race dating, we are not here to make a political statement. All we want to do is list the 14 sexiest interracial couples in Tinseltown.
14 Zoe Saldana and Marco Saldana
13 Robert Pattinson and FKA Twigs
12 Michael Jordan and Yvette Prieto
11 John Legend and Chrissy Teigen
10 Eva Mendes and Ryan Gosling
9 Matthew McConaughey and Camila Alves
8 Kendra Wilkinson and Hank Baskett
7 Salma Hayek and Francois Pinault
6 Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos
5 David Bowie and Iman
4 Ice T and Coco
3 Kim Kardashian and Kanye West
One of the most famous interracial relationships of our generation, and this one lasted more than 73 days! Unlike her infamous two-and-a-half month marriage to Washington Wizards forward Kris Humphries, Kim and Kanye have been married for almost two years. They are currently expecting a second baby, due December of this year. Since Kim and Kanye have gotten together, they’ve gotten a lot of media attention, from naming their child a compass direction to making a video of them naked on a motorcycle. At least there’s no sex tape (but a man can still hope.)
2 Bella Hadid And The Weeknd
This couple kept their relationship secret for months before coming out to the press. They too attended the Alexander Wang show, sitting in the front row in coordinated outfits. The relationship became essentially public after the Much Music Video Awards, when Bella Hadid posted a picture of The Weeknd kissing his “sister” Gigi Hadid on the cheek when he ran up to collect his trophy, and then later when Gigi posted a picture of them from behind with only the caption: “Congrats my brother.”
1 Kylie Jenner and Tyga
It’s been an open secret of Hollywood for quite some time now that Kylie Jenner is dating the rapping Tyga, seven years older than she, (she's 18 and he's 25). Since she was a minor, they could not show affection in public. However, since her birthday in August, they’ve been attached at the lips. They recently made their debut at the New York Fashion Week Alexander Wang show, where they slurped on each other all night long - in front of the media, the sisters, and the terrestrial God Alexander Wang.
