We see a woman with a pretty face and a stellar body on national television, who isn't a musician or a news anchor, and often times without any evidence, our prejudiced instincts kick in. Amber Rose has fallen into this trap one too many times.
Unbeknownst to many people, the dancer turned model started out in a very dark place and lifted herself out of it and into brighter states.
Malcolm X said it best: By any means necessary.
That's exactly how Rose managed; from age 15-25, all she knew was the makeshift of exotic dancing. She'd strut her stuff and then go home to pay the bills. As she has repeatedly stated, Amber was never a prostitute, but she's had no shame in admitting she made ends meet by dancing at the strip club.
In a Star interview, Rose explained:
"Me and my mom were both homeless when I was 15 years old, and that's when I first started dancing… I was never a prostitute. I would dance; I would make my money, and then go home and pay bills."
In the past few years, the star vixen and her looks set ablaze a career launch that landed her in the lap of luxury, thanks to her high-profile relationship with hip-hop mogul Mr. Kanye West. She'd be damned if she let that go, right? Precisely.
She then strapped her boots on and revved up her engine. She went from stripping, to making cameos in music videos such as Ludacris' "What Them Girls Like," Young Jeezy's "Vacation," Mary Mary's "God in Me", Nicki Minaj's "Massive Attack" and Fabolous' "You Be Killin' Em."
Lo and behold, the couple's Beauty and the Beast montage did not have a Disney ending.
What started out as love, turned into a verbally and emotionally abusive relationship in which Amber had to call it quits.
Kanye became guilty of infidelity amongst other things. In a Huffington Post review, Amber blatantly pointed the finger at Kim Kardashian.
"…one of the main reasons why me and Kanye are not together."
"It's beyond any love I've ever had in my life," gushingly revealed Amber to Star.
"Wiz doesn't do as musicians do and deal with all the groupies… At the end of his shows, he goes straight to the tour bus. He calls me."
In addition to being Rose's Superman, Wiz also encouraged her to do more with her capabilities; he persisted that she start pursuing her musical ambitions.
Amber Rose, the face of Smirnoff Vodka and judge on BET's Master of the Mix, is now slated to drop her album very soon.
Get it girl.
What's more, hip-hop's most beloved couple has previously talked about marriage and babies, disclosing, "We don't feel like we have to hurry up and get married because… we're going to be in love forever."
Despite that, it looks like Wiz got a little antsy and couldn't wait to get down on one knee for the woman of his dreams!
Just moments ago, the two went on Twitter and proclaimed each other's love for the public to see … Wiz proposed to Amber and "She said yes!!!," while Amber tweeted a Twitpic of the mega oval-shaped rock.
Stuntin' is a habit!
We couldn't be any happier. Our Rosebud tells a feel good story juxtaposed with an underdog theme, and we're elated to finally see her reach bliss!
