Stripper-turned hip-hop video vixen-turned ardent feminist Amber Rose has long sought to be considered more than “Kanye’s infamous ex” or “Wiz Khalifa’s baby mama.” Now “America’s toughest bald babe since Sigourney Weaver in Alien 3” is publishing her own book: a 256-page memoir/self-help book dubbed How to Be a Bad Bitch. On occasion of its release, Rose appears in the latest issue of GQ. Shot topless by Robert Maxwell, the provocative images are accompanied by a lengthy profile that delves into topics like her rise to fame, parenting, why she’ll never listen to My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, and much more.
Not everyone is thrilled about the piece, however: Rose herself took to Instagram yesterday to lash out at the publication for being “ignorant” and billing her as a “teen stripper turned megalomaniac muse.”
You can read the piece over at GQ‘s website while Rose’s own reaction to the piece appears below.
Really @gq??? I'm so much more then Kanye's Ex or Wiz's baby's mama. Damn, why the fuck did u guys reach out to me for this article and photoshoot? To dumb me down? I talked about feminism and my Slutwalk… Wtf nice title smh I expected so much more from u guys and I'm so disappointed. I was so excited to be featured in GQ not realizing I was shooting for a tabloid. My slutwalk was for ignorant shit like this. Oh "Her beautiful dark twisted journey to the top"? Nice pun. Negative af. Thx for nothing.
