Amber Rose Finally Speaks Up About Kanye West's "Famous" Video
Amber Rose is finally speaking up about Kanye West’s “Famous” music video! The daring diva has kept quiet since he first revealed the video featuring a naked wax figure that looks just like her, but on June 30 she revealed her full thoughts about it, and her response might surprise you.
We expected Amber to be fuming mad when she saw a naked wax figure of herself snuggled up in bed with Kanye, Kim Kardashian, Donald Trump, Taylor Swift and more stars, but her reaction was surprisingly calm and yet frustrated – for good reason.
“The misconception—and I still hear this seven years later, to this day—is, ‘You’re only famous for Kanye,” Amber told The Daily Beast . Surprisingly, she doesn’t argue that point. “Initially, absolutely. In 2009, when they’re like, ‘Amber Rose—Kanye’s girlfriend,’ I was like, ‘OK, that’s pretty accurate. That’s what it is.’ But I didn’t ask to be famous, and I didn’t even talk or do interviews for two years, because I thought, ‘I don’t want this. I’m not famous.'”
“Over time, with going out in public, I realized it would never go away, so I didn’t have any choice but to progress,” she explained. “Everything I’ve done since then is my own doing, and I’ve worked my ass off for everything I have. But Wendy Williams put Charlamagne on. Jay Z put Kanye on! But they don’t do that to men, and they always want to diminish my accomplishments and put them on someone else when I work really hard.”
