Amber Rose is the subject of a new feature in GQ ahead of the release of her memoir/self-help book How to Be a Bad Bitch — and she pulls no punches, talking about sex, success and, of course, Kanye and Wiz.
“I’ve been slut-shamed by both of my exes, you know?” she begins, telling GQ she’ll “never, ever, ever” listen to Kanye West‘s 2010 album My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, which he made while they were together. “It’s just not for me,” she told the magazine. “Don’t get me wrong, 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. They’ll be like, ‘That’s a cool song,’ and I’m like, ‘That happened to us when we were together.’”
Of the inspiration behind her book, as well as her recent activism (she hosted a SlutWalk in L.A., intended to fight the double-standards that are so often applied to women, Rose said, “As a woman, it’s like…fuck! You have to act like a nun for a guy to respect you.
“Even if you do wait to have sex and you’re very comfortable and you do exactly what you want to do in that moment, you have to be very careful because you don’t want to be looked at as a ho,” she continued. “How do you win? You do exactly what you want to do. And if it doesn’t work out, then he’s just not meant for you.”
