Amber Rose stopped by the No Judgment Zone with BlogXilla to promote her new film School Dance, starring Kevin Hart, Nick Cannon, and Lil Duval. On the show, Amber told us about her character:
“Her name is Mary Wanna, she’s the popular girl in school She’s a bit ghetto, but all the girls listen to her. It’s a really funny movie, I can’t wait for you to see it.”
After that, Muva Rosebud gave us the 411 on what it was like for her growing up, being a mother, her fear of what social media will do to her child, and much more. Check out some excerpts below.
On Being A Nerd In Grade School:
“I wasn’t [popular] in grade school. I got picked on a lot, I was a total nerd, then when I got into high school, I was very popular. I used to come home and cry to my mom, like, ‘They are calling me four eyes!’ She would say, ‘Just tell them four eyes are better than two,’ and I always used to say that. I would be feeling myself like, four eyes are better than two and they would be like, ‘She’s right, they are.’ So it kind of helped me out a little bit.”
On Becoming Popular in High School:
“It was hard because girls didn’t want to be my friend because all the boys liked me in school, but I had a couple of other friends who were pretty popular, but the majority of girls didn’t like me.”
On How Being Plus Size Helped Her Launch Her Site Rose and Ono:
“After I had Sebastian, I was plus size and I really didn’t know how to dress for my figure at that time because I was so used to wearing crop tops and tights. So I kind of just wore baggy clothes. So Priscilla (Ono) being a plus sized girl, she was like, ‘Girl, you just need to do this and do that…’ So I was like, we should do an online store for every girl, so there is no girl left out. That’s what we decided to do. We did it with our own money – we are 50/50 partners.”
On Her Son The Bash Talking & Being A Happy Baby:
“He’s a very happy rambunctious little boy. If he wants to play the piano, if he wants to play the violin, if he wants to do karate. He loves books. Whatever he wants to be, I just want him to be happy. We talk to our son all day long. He’s 16 months and he talks. When he wants to go outside, he’s like, ‘Go.’ If he wants to eat, he’s like, ‘Food.’ Anything he wants, he can say it. He knows exactly what he’s talking about.”
On Her Fear Her Son Will Be Cyber Bullied On Social Media:
“The only thing that does scare me is social media. People are very mean, they are very hurtful and people are getting cyber bullied. I can only imagine that 10 years from now if he’s on the computer and getting cyber bullied. I just need to make sure that I am always there for my son, that I know exactly what’s going on at all times. So I can prevent him from getting depressed or having anxiety. That’s what a lot of kids go through now. So I can imagine that in the years to come, it’s only going to get worse.”
