I have always loved Amber Rose and I always will. She may not be everyone’s cup of tea because she’s pretty in-your-face, but that’s what I love about her. She doesn’t give a shit if you find her loud, outspoken, or tacky — she’s doing her. Plus, if anyone thinks that’s all she is, they’re idiots, because she’s incredibly intelligent and a great ally to fellow females — including Kim Kardashian, who the world would love to pin her against given the Kanye connection. It was Amber who stood up for Kim when everyone was bashing her over her boring naked selfie a couple of weeks ago, and now Amber has made another great point, using Beyonce as an example.
Here’s what she had to say in a new interview with The Daily Beast:
It’s bullshit, and this is the thing: They come at me and Kim so hard because I was a stripper and she had a sex tape … We all love Beyoncé, but she’s on stage half-naked and twerking all the time, yet people say, oh, she has talent so she’s able to do that.
We don’t have the talent that Beyoncé has, so we get criticized as former sex workers, but at the end of the day we’re just women — we’re all women — and we should all embrace each other. No one is greater. We’re all the same. So, to criticize us as incapable of being smart businesswomen because Kim has a reality show and I’m a socialite and we don’t sing is stupid. We’ve both been in movies, and we take our acting, business ventures, and everything else very seriously.
TRUE. I… occasionally love Beyonce/occasionally want her out of my sight, but I still think it’s fucked up that she can go twerking and stripping down on stage and be a total diva/boss bitch, yet Kim K. and Amber Rose are sluts and strippers. I think all of us need to value more than just our bodies, sure, but it’s also not my place to tell someone how to use their own, and this is a serious double standard.
Amber Rose for president!
