Amber Rose Goes Nude in GQ, Calls Out Magazine for ‘Dumbing Me Down’
Amber Rose has become a de facto feminist thanks to her SlutWalk event earlier this month. The blonde-haired bombshell, who celebrates her 32nd birthday today (Oct. 21), recently posed nude for GQ magazine and opened up about her success, slut-shaming and her former beaus, Kanye West and Wiz Khalifa, as well as her new book, How to Be a Bad Bitch.
In the candid interview, Rose talks about forgiving her past lovers, particularly Yeezy and Wiz, who have said some disparaging remarks about her. She admitted that she never listens to West's My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy because most of the songs are about their past relationship -- even though many fans can't grasp the content.
“Never, ever, ever. It’s just not for me. Don’t get me wrong,” she tells the mag. “I’ll hear songs and I’m like, ‘Oh, he said that about me.’ No one knows what he’s talking about but me and him. People can’t decipher...obviously, I know he’s talking to me through music."
As for her 256-page self-help guide, How to Be a Bad Bitch, Rose says the book is about being successful and being comfortable in your own skin. “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," she reveals. "It does become intimidating for a man. I do feel more comfortable with someone who’s living up to par with me.”
Shortly after the profile hit the internet today, Rose went on Instagram to express her disdain for the profile. She called out the men's lifestyle publication for being "negative" and using the opportunity to "dumb me down."
"Really @gq??? I'm so much more then Kanye's Ex or Wiz's baby's mama," she wrote. "Damn, why the f--- did u guys reach out to me for this article and photoshoot? To dumb me down? I talked about feminism and my Slutwalk... Wtf nice title smh I expected so much more from u guys and I'm so disappointed. I was so excited to be featured in GQ not realizing I was shooting for a tabloid."
The editors of GQ have not responded to Rose's accusations. You can read the full interview at GQ.com.
