GlobalGrind caught up with hip-hop fly girl, model, designer, actress and icon Amber Rose, hours before she was to attend the launch party for the second season of BET and Smirnoff’s Master of The Mix launch.
Amber, who is a judge on the DJ battle reality series, chatted with GG about the Kim Kardashian/Justin Bieber deluge that’s currently poppin’ in the media.
We also discussed what it’s like to have Kanye West shout her out during his Watch the Throne tour stop in her hometown of Philly.
Check out Part One of our exclusive below!
GlobalGrind: As a person in the public eye who has had her fair share of drama, do you have an opinion about what’s going on with the Kardashian divorce and Justin Bieber’s baby mama drama?
Amber Rose: Justin Bieber and Kim Kardashian, they’re both way more famous than I am, so I’m sure they’re getting it probably a little more than I do or did. We’re all human beings, celebrity or not, we all make mistakes. We all go through trials and tribulations in our lives and you have to overcome it. Just pray. Whatever you believe in, just pray and really keep your life very positive, that’s what I do.
If you follow me on Twitter, you know I’m all about women’s empowerment, girl power, being inspirational, being dope and doing things that make me happy. At the end of the day, you can’t live your life for other people. People are always going to judge you no matter what. They’re going to judge me on my music, they’re going to judge me on my hair, they’re going to judge me on my outfit, but at the end of the day I’m happy! So, Justin Bieber, he’ll get over it. Whatever happens, he’ll move on, he’s super talented, he’ll still be successful.
With Kim Kardashian, I think a lot of people think that it was all fake, it was all phony. You never know what goes on in someone’s life, you can only really assume. You never know what happened! People judge me all the time but they don’t know my life, they don’t know where I come from, what I go through, or what I’ve been through.
Kanye recently shouted you out when he was on stage in Philly. He basically thanked Philly for making you. What do you think about that?
He thanked Philly for making me?
He said: “To the city of Philly, I want to thank y’all for making the incredible person that this song was made for…”
I think, sometimes, you don’t know what you have until it’s gone! When you do have a beautiful thing and it’s so good and it’s so beautiful, you think it’s always going to be there, you take it for granted. I guess that’s it.
