Amber Rose Plays ‘Robocop’ in New Kanye Video
Kanye West's main squeeze, Amber Rose has landed her latest -- and daresay most fortuitous video vixen role to date -- playing a robotic police officer, in West's upcoming 'Robocop' video, from his "808's & Heartbreak" album.
Rose told MTV News that she had the lead role locked down in West's video about a jealousy-deranged girlfriend. "I have Kanye's 'Robocop' video," she said, at the launch of the America's Most Wanted Music Festival. "I'm playing a robot through the whole video. Ninety-five percent of the video is just me."
Rose, who was a video model before her high-profile relationship with Kanye, has appeared in other music videos, including Young Jeezy's 'Vacation,' and Ludacris' 'What Them Girls Like,' but acknowledges that her star has risen considerably since her involvement with Kanye.
"I definitely welcome it," she said. "I appreciate all my fans. I definitely never expected it. I don't wanna say I never wanted it. But ... I just know a lot of girls, they go to modeling agencies every single day. That's their life. A lot of stuff ... just landed in my lap. I thank God for that; it's really a blessing. I thank God for that -- and Kanye, of course. Kanye definitely gave me the fast track to the top."
While on the subject of the upcoming video, which is likely to catapult her to a new level of public scrutiny, Rose went on to document her recent coverage in other high-profile outlets, name-dropping a few magazine spreads. "I have Complex mag, Elle magazine, Persona magazine -- I have the cover to the back, the whole issue is dedicated to me," she said. "I'm excited about that."
