THE ROYAL PEEK: AMBER ROSE
Finally, we get to put the voice and personality to the crotch-grabbing body thatâ€™s been in our fantasies for years. Gentlemen, Amber Rose speaks. Listen up.
***HERE’S AN EXCERPT FROM OUR SIT DOWN WITH MS. ROSE, INTERVIEWED BY SEAN A. MALCOLM***
What do you think is the perception of Amber Rose?
I spoke to people, asking why do I constantly get ridiculed. Is it because I was a stripper?
Well that doesnâ€™t help that perception much.
But they said, â€œNo, people donâ€™t care about that, itâ€™s that they think that youâ€™re with all these men, when youâ€™re not.â€ Iâ€™m only taking that from certain people that I spoke to. Maybe itâ€™s that too, or that Iâ€™m very comfortable with my body. I can be topless on Miami Beach, that doesnâ€™t make me a whore. Thatâ€™s an everyday thing on Miami Beach. Itâ€™s just such a big deal because Iâ€™m in the public eye.
If youâ€™re cognizant of these things, why go from one public relationship into another one with Wiz Khalifa?
Letâ€™s put it like this, I promised myself that I would never in my life ever again deal with a man in the music industryâ€¦ever!
I met him to give him a pair of sunglasses from my company. You know, heâ€™s from PA, Iâ€™m from PAâ€”I wanted to look out for him. We exchanged numbers over Twitterâ€¦
Thereâ€™s something to be said about Twitter hookups. Continue.
[Laughs] Yeah, but it was strictly business for me to give him the shades. He calls and tells me heâ€™s in LA and can he come and get the shades. I told him Iâ€™m about to go to Runyon and work out and Iâ€™ll contact him after. He says he has the day off and I told him he could come to Runyon with me because Iâ€™m going by myself. It would be cool to have some company. He said, cool.
You guys connected during that workout session, then?
We hung out, we were friends. Thatâ€™s when I posted that picture [on Twitter] saying, â€œme and my little brother Wiz.â€ â€˜Cause I was like, â€œIâ€™m not dealing with no young rapper.â€
So when did that relationship turn into incest?
[Laughs] I chilled with him for two weeks. We didnâ€™t kiss or nothing. Then he left for Pittsburgh and when he left I was so lost without him. He has to come back, I just miss him, and I donâ€™t look at him like a little brother.
Why is that?
Heâ€™s just so positive. Heâ€™s one of those people that in any situation he can always see the brighter side to something. And he always has a smile on his face, heâ€™s never in a bad mood, heâ€™s super talented and smart, heâ€™s a boss. Just being around him I realized heâ€™s not no little boy like I thought he was. Heâ€™s a grown man about his business. His music alone, heâ€™s not in the same circle as those other dudes, heâ€™s on some other shit. So when he left we just talked on the phone constantly and thatâ€™s when we realized we were really falling for each other. And I was like when this young boy gets back from Pittsburgh; he is definitely getting someâ€¦definitely [laughs].
Points awarded for honesty. Does it make sense to ask who made the first move?
[Laughs] Ah shit, it was mutual. It was that energy and that feeling, we really fell for each other really hard really fast.
Whatâ€™s the difference between this relationship with Wiz and your last with Kanye?
The thing of it isâ€¦how can I say this without sounding crazy or mean? Iâ€™m sorry.
No need to apologize, the floor is yours.
Thereâ€™s no comparison in personalities. You know when people say how do you go from Kanye to Wiz Khalifa, thatâ€™s a downgrade. But the only question I can ask them is: have you ever dated Kanye? Because I have, and believe me, I did not downgrade at all. Not in any aspect, at all.
