Amber Rose appeared on New York’s Hot97 morning radio show yesterday where she cleared up some rumors and addressed host Peter Rosenberg who had wondered why she (“a hot girl who used to sleep with Kanye”) deserved to write a book. Read and watch excerpts of the interview below:
On Stripping At Sue’s and Meeting Kanye
When I was 15, I was homeless, me and my mom were homeless – my mother’s my only family – so I took it upon myself to go out and make money. I was a hustler, that’s what I did. I wasn’t a prostitute, I didn’t trick off. I was well respected in Sue’s [Strip Club]. People that know me over at Sue’s, they love me over there. There’s a lot of guys in the industry that go there – A LOT – and they all tried to holla and they never got the time of day with me because I went to work, I made my money and I went home, I paid my bills and I took care of my mother. That’s it. So the men in the industry that been there and saw me and tried to holla, they know what it is.
When I met my ex, it was chemistry. We fell in love, we did. We were very happy. We didn’t me there [at Sue's] He flew me out to do a “Robocop” video that never came out. We shot the video and hung out real tough. And we were just good friends and then we really fell in love. And I never moved back to New York after that. I was just with him. I stayed for two years. He didn’t want me to leave and I didn’t want to leave. We were very happy. But we’re human beings. S*** didn’t work out. It’s that simple.
On Being “Married” To Wiz Khalifa
No ring. We’re really really really in love. I never loved like this in my life. He is my life. I would die for him. That’s how much I love him. We will get married. We are going to have babies but we have time. We have the rest of our lives. We always say, we are going to be together forever. He’s my soulmate. We’re meant to be together. So when it happens it happens. We’re not in a rush.
Rosenberg asks, “If it was 1995 and beef at the Source Awards was still poppin’ and they threw down, you think Wiz could take Kanye?”
I think he would beat the crap outta Kanye. And I’d kick him while he’s down, I’d be right there with him [laughs].
