Baseballer Matt Kemp Shows His Bod For FLAUNT Mag, Talks His Obsession With Fashion

Pro baseballer Matt Kemp flaunted his abs for FLAUNT magazine recently.  Rihanna's ex-boyfriend talked about what he loves in a woman as well.  Pics inside, plus what he reveals about his fashion and shoe obsession....

Oh really Matt?  The multimillion dollar MLBer flaunted his assets for the new issue of FLAUNT magazine:

And dished about his obsession of fashion and the type of women he's into:
 

If there is one weakness to Matt Kemp, it’s shopping. We’re not just talking your everyday, garden variety shopping either. Kemp is a power shopper. The way Kemp puts it, Veronica Lodge herself would have a hard time keeping up with him. Barneys? I suggest, knowingly. He nods. “Yeah, that’s one of my favorites.” What section do you beeline for? “Shoes!” he says. It is the singular moment during this interview when Matt Kemp’s eyes sparkle. “Shoes and clothes, man,” he continues. “I like to look nice when I go places. I think we all do for the most part. You want to walk around feeling good about yourself. In the past year-and-a-half, two years, I got into being around fashionable people. I started to enjoy the things that other people I was around enjoyed like clothes and shoes. It’s fun. I think it’s fun to go into a store and try to figure out what to put with some shoes or your outfit or whatever, and rock it.

“I’m like a chameleon, man,” Kemp continues. “I can switch it up. I can one day be wearing some Jordans or nice retro sportswear with some jeans, a shirt, and a hat, and make that look nice. And then I can wear a collared shirt with some RRL jeans.” He goes on to reference Lanvin and YSL.

Sometimes, I offer, do you go too far?

“Sometimes,” Kemp replies. “There’s times. You’ve got to set a little budget for every month or two for yourself. If you go over that budget, it means that you have do less next month. It’s all about saving money. But looking good at the same time.”

“What do I look for?” he laughs. “I like confident people. I like positive people. Somebody that can make me a better person. Somebody that makes me want to be a better person. Smart. Pretty, of course. Somebody that is close with their family and loves their family just as much as I love my family. Somebody that knows how to dress. It just boils down to being confident and being comfortable in your own skin and the person that you are.”

 

Somebody that you can go shopping with?

“Definitely,” he says. “Somebody that can help me [shop]. I love looking and seeing what kind of shoes women wear. I think that tells me if a person knows what they’re doing. To me, shoes are…” Kemp trails off. “If I like your shoes, and you’re pretty, that’s a good quality. As well as being confident.”

 

Do you want to shop with Matt Kemp?

Men care about shoes and

Men care about shoes and clothes and stuff and I don't think that makes them gay. I appreciate a man who knows how to dress and look right than one I feel I have to put together his entire ensemble before going somewhere. All that being said Matt Kemp is not my type.

MATT is NOT GAY! LMAO People

MATT is NOT GAY! LMAO People are so insecure! MATT is 100% a man and he is comfortable within his SKIN. People who make these baseless "gay" comments just don't get it. And I know MATT could care less what any you HOOD RATS think anyway. Matt is a MAN's MAN. In this industry the people who put together the shoot are GAY and it's no shock that they direct people in this fashion but MATT is not gay and some of these photos are beautiful. Rihanna's taste has vastly improved in MEN. MATT is more of a man than FIST BROWN. LOVE these photos.

Bitch can you shut your

Bitch can you shut your psychotic Chris Brown obssessed tail up! You are truly pathetic! Like Rihanna's SLUT BUCKET behind that's fine but your constant gripe against Chris Brown is just crazy at this point. That relationship is nearly three years past bitch have a seat with your constant whinning about it. I do find it interesting you will stand-up for a guy who cheated on your precious queen showing her that she was nothing new or special...LOL! You go MATT baby....mwah. He merely used her for publicity. A very smart move on his part. Love you Matt ha ha

I don't get why people keep

I don't get why people keep saying "insecure"....i don't mind if guys like shoes...but damn clothes and shoes were all he talked about during the intereview. I've never heard any guy celebrity go on a shoes fetish rant besides maybe miss j...he is a good looking guy...but not my taste...i prefer lisa bonet's hubby

I agree with you. But look at

I agree with you. But look at it like this. Flaunt is basically a gay fashion magazine. The editors and stylist shoot a lot of Hollywood men and make them as they would like to see them. I'm sure these questions were designed to give gay men a false sense of hope. Like Matt this baseball player likes shoes like we do type of thing. Get it? I think some of these photos are....how do I say this....shot for a specific audience and it's not women. I mean women don't buy this magazine. I never even heard of it before. But looking at some of the issues online it's on of those high end fashion magazines. Matt is not GAY. Lisa's husband would have been shot in a similar way and asked the same types of questions. Matt like fashion and a lot of men like women who wear high end shoes it does not imply they are gay. Gay to me is Trey Songz, Neyo, Diddy, Jason Derulo...etc. Remember those CRAZY photos of Kobe Bryant in the White for the LA TIMES. He also looked CRAZY. Sometimes people get into photo shoots and they have no idea how they will look and since they don't know they get taken. But Matt looks good in "some" of these photos but to say he is GAY is lame. That man is FINE! And he clearly loves women.

Matt Kemp....what can i say!!! he's really attractive and i think he was honest when he said that he liked a person who was pretty and make him to be a better person (eventhough you should be trying to do that w/ or w/out a person in your life) he is an attractive man!! I swear America has the best looking black men!! i'm from toronto, i do not see anything that looks like him!! in Toronto we have women that are beautiful, although i do think the lace front thing and the overdoing of tattoos are killing their beauty, however they are beautiful, and i don't see men that look that GOOD!! if you know where to meet attractive matt kemp types in Toronto, let me know!! Thanks have a good day and i apologized about my rant!! and ya Matt Kemp is HOT yea ballers!!! base ballers that is!!! hehehe :)

I'm sorry but Black women in Toronto are not all that. I've been there and I didn't see women who were gorgeous. The black women in america are much more attractive. I did see several hot black men in Toronto though.

SMH...so funny how

SMH...so funny how judgemental black women/people can be. it never ceases to amaze how simple most can really be and just for that they will not succeed in life. Since the man is clearly attractive, dresses well and takes care of himself then all of a sudden hes gay...but let him be tatted completely up, a jail bird, no job and homeless and then all of sudden hes god gift....some of you and these comments need professional help seriously. The mind is a terrible thing to waste...and for the record next time you state claim on how someone looks post your own pic so everyone can see exactly what you working with. Dismissed

Please limit your statement

Please limit your statement to what you assume or black women who decide to comment on this blog. A blanket statement like "they will not succeed in life" is dangerous and a gross generalization..

OMG look at his face in the pic where he is all wet. His name is Matilda. No more damn Matt. That face says everything. What did the photographer tell him to get him into that pose? Think about making love to a man? I use to think he was cute but I cant be attracted to him n e more. I like men.

Im really tired of the media trying to make our Black men look like women and thinking its ok and trendy. Wtf is going on in the top pic. Is his shirt in his mouth and his leg up. WTF I would expect that from Chanel Iman... NOT THIS NIGGA! On to the next one... you know the one with him in the henley and the boy shorts. That would be sexy as hell if Bey, Ri, Kelly or whomever did that. NOT THIS NIGGA THOUGH. Sigh. What us black women gonna do? No man better come in my face with the feminine sexy shit. Men stay in your places and stop trying to take ours. REAL TALK!

Who knew Rhi Rhi dated a closeted bi-sexual? I can see why she dumped him. He's exceedingly handsome and loaded but his mind is not ready.But long term that shopping part gets a little stale. We don't need a girlfriend to go shopping with. We need a someone to make us feel like we're the only girls in the world :)

Because if you're serious

Because if you're serious about quickly replacing your full time income (just to start) and spending your time doing what YOU want to do, I'm ready to show you exactly how I was able to go from $600 to my name to bringing in $6,000 per month like clockwork. And what's best is it will work for you even if you're totally clueless about the Internet or technology, have no experience or education and just wanna chill out in your house and never talk to anybody. This system works because YOU don't have to! Get the details .. Just type in your name, email and phone below. Then get ready to experience something different. Something that actually works!! http://BeInspired.OneBigPowerline.com ttys GodBless:)!!

I actually went to school with him and know him personally and for all the queens and hoes who let oprah brainwash you into think every man is gay you can save it cause he's not. Ugh black women sometimes make me sad to say I am one. A man can't bd good looking, like to shop, and take a picture with a wet shirt or he's gay. That's why our asses are doomed to be single cause we swear the ones who aint gay are and the ones who are aren't. Ugh!
