Amber Rose took to Instagram to show how very disappointed she was with the folks at GQ for dumbing down her struggles and painting her as nothing but Kanye West’s ‘infamous’ and Wiz Khalifa’s ‘baby mama’
Here is a summary of the illuminating feature:
Amber Rose and her son Sebastian live in the Hollywood Hills, in the palatial house where both Nas and French Montana formerly lived in. (Side note: when French Montana was hunting for the place in 2014, TMZ reported that it is a 4,800 sq. ft. Hollywood Hills home with 4-bedroom, 4-bath house which includes a wine and cigar cellar, and was on market for $29,000/month.) Plus, she still receives their mails.
She is such a great mom who ensures she teaches her son a new word ever week, like ‘con-ver-sate’ and ‘translucent.’
She still has the Wiz Khalifa tattoo on the back of her left arm.
She has a tanning bed in the corner of her massive bedroom, across from the decorative stripper pole.
She is ‘so sick’ of talking about Kanye West so much that she many times refuses to use his name. My ‘ex’, she calls him.
In her upcoming book How To Be Bad Bitch, she recounted why she shaved her head at the age of 18: it was an act of defiance, and it changed the course of her life.
She does not depend on anyone at all, like she said, �I have my own house. I have a Ferrari. I have a Jeep. I have an Escalade. I have two Can-Ams. I have a beautiful son, two assistants, lawyers, business managers, management, and access to pretty much whatever I want. It does become intimidating for a man. I do feel more comfortable with someone who’s living up to par with me.”
Cigarettes are going out of fashion but she doesn’t give a ‘f*k.’ �I love smoking. I get to talking, I get to smoking. I’ll get through this whole pack.”
We get to see what Amber Rose really looks like when she is at home, without camera filters. As GQ describes her: �Without makeup, [Amber Rose] looks even more surreal�like a character from a virtual-reality game who feeds on Swarovski crystals and male blood.”
On the media industry slut-shaming her for sleeping with Kanye West, Amber Rose tells GQ: �I get it. But now that you’re here, we’re gonna really talk about slut shaming. I really want you guys to sit down and think about the act that your mother had to do with your father in order to have you. Really, fully understand that your mother is a sexual being. Is she a ho?”
She goes on to ask why society depict a woman as a sexual object but tears her down when she enjoys her own sexuality. �As a woman, it’s like…fuck! You have to act like a nun for a guy to respect you. And even if you do wait to have sex and you’re very comfortable and you do exactly what you want to do in that moment, you have to be very careful because you don’t want to be looked at as a ho. How do you win? You do exactly what you want to do. And if it doesn’t work out, then he’s just not meant for you.”
She recounted why she broke up with Wiz Khalifa: she caught him sleeping with a set of twins, shortly after their son was born. They broke up and he dropped a music calling her a stripper. But Rose remains defiant: �I was a stripper years before I met you, and that’s why you cheated?”
On her beef with rapper Tyga: �I really went in on Tyga. He’d been texting Blac Chyna, saying, ‘I really want my family back’�but he was out with a 17-year-old.”
On her feud with the Kardashians following her fight with Khloe on Twitter: �I think it’s fucking awesome that [Kim] did a sex tape and made millions of dollars for her family. But let’s not forget where we came from. Because I didn’t. [Kim] probably had a fucking blast. And guess what? At the time she was in love with that [Ray J]. So don’t think you’re better than me, because we’ve all had trials and tribulations.”
On becoming a stripper at 15 to support her family: �Best fucking time of my life. I’m not going to say young girls should go be dancers. But that was my journey, and I don’t regret it.”
How to Be a Bad Bitch started out as an angry book, but with time and editing, she cut off many of the angry pages. The end result is still edgy but she is careful in naming names.
At the end of the interview, she reveals she is dating someone famous who is not Machine Gun Kelly or anyone people had already linked her with since her break up with Wiz Khalifa. She is not ready to let the world know him.
