Model Amber Rose is showing that she is more than capable of standing on her own two feet sans her beau Kanye West. The 26-year-old posed for a racy photo shoot in the latest issue of Complex magazine. In the mag, Rose, who has been dating West for several months, opened up about her relationship with the Chicago native.

"I was always a huge fan of [his], but he had a fiancée. When I met him, it was strictly business. He wanted me for his 'Robocop' video and he had the utmost respect for me. We hung out on a friendship/business type of deal. You know, just as normal human beings, when you hang out with somebody, you start to like them."

Since hooking up with the Louis Vuitton Don, Rose has been the topic of media scrutiny due in part to her bisexuality and previous jobs as an exotic dancer. "Kanye knew my life, so when the blogs came out like, 'Oh, Kanye do you know she was a stripper, that she used to date girls?' Kanye was like, 'Tell me something I don't know.' Everybody has a life and a past.

"My intentions when I met Kanye was to do his video, keep it very professional and we really started to like each other. It just so happened that he started liking me and I started liking him. It's not a publicity stunt, it's just human beings, man. I love Kanye as a person, he's a great person, he's super-talented. I love him for a lot of different reasons."

Rose recently signed with Ford Models and hopes to break into acting.
