Amber Rose: Her ‘Sexy’ New Show, ‘Slut Walk,’ & Perfect Response To Kanye West Music Video

Amber Rose has a message for those who think she owes her fame to her past role as Kanye West’s girlfriend. By putting Amber among the celebrities featured in his new “Famous” music video, the rapper once again linked himself to Rose. But Amber is clapping back at those who credit Kanye for turning her into a celebrity, reported ET.

“The misconception — and I still hear this seven years later, to this day — is, ‘You’re only famous for Kanye,'” summed up Rose.

Amber dated West from 2008 to 2010, but points out that their association ended when their relationship ended.

“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,'” she agreed.

However, Rose initially had no desire to seek fame, even avoiding agreeing to be interviewed for a few years. Eventually, Amber realized that she had become a recognizable celebrity, and proceeded on that path.

“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,'” she recalled. “Over time, with going out in public, I realized it would never go away, so I didn’t have any choice but to progress.”

At 32, Rose asks that she be viewed based on what she has accomplished rather than as someone who once dated West.

“Everything I’ve done since then is my own doing, and I’ve worked my f**king a** off for everything I have,” emphasized Amber.

Kanye used the nude images of Kim Kardashian, Swift, West, Bill Cosby, Caitlyn Jenner, Chris Brown, Ray J, Donald Trump, Rihanna, Anna Wintour and George W. Bush as well as Rose in his music video.

In addition to speaking out about how she has earned the right to be recognized for her accomplishments rather than for a past relationship with West, Amber is enthusiastically discussing her new show and previewing her “slut walk.” Rose promises that her late night talk show, The Amber Rose Show, will provide viewers with a “very sexy” experience, reported Fox 5.

The show premiered June 17 at 11 p.m. on VH1.

“We talk about just about anything. Anything that you might be into. It’s a no-judgment zone,” revealed Rose.

The audience is encouraged to ask questions, and Dr. Chris Donahue is teaming up with Amber to respond to questions about relationships and sex.

“We just give them the best advice we possibly can,” she added.

And there’s a surprise member of Team Amber: Dr. Phil McGraw. The TV psychiatrist worked with Rose to develop the talk show, and they are in sync, revealed Amber.

“Dr. Phil totally gets my movement. It’s an unlikely pairing but we’re both in the business of helping people. We just do it in different ways. He loves me.”

The comment about her “movement” has to do with Rose’s “Slut Walk,” which takes place each year. The Slut Walk will occur on October 1 this year, and attracted thousands in 2015.

“It’s an event that I put on for women who have been raped, sexually assaulted,” explained Amber.

Topics include equality, the double standards that exist for men and women, and a variety of issues that revolve around women. The name for the event comes from an experience that a woman suffered after being sexually assaulted.

“The reason we call it a ‘Slut Walk’ is because a woman from Toronto was sexually assaulted on a college campus. She went to the authorities and the police officers went to the school and said you ‘girls can’t expect to be dressing like sluts and expect not to get assaulted.'”

Rather than putting the blame on the person who assaulted the woman, the authorities blamed the victim, motivating Rose to take action.

“Instead of blaming the guy who did it, they blamed her. It was completely wrong. I decided to use my platform,” explained Amber.

Those who attend the event have the opportunity to share their experiences safely.

“It was really cool to hear everyone’s story [last year],” recalled Rose.
