Amber Rose Did a Marilyn Monroe x Lady GaGa type shoot in an upcoming issue of YRB Magazine. Not sure if the shot worked for her but inside, she talks about Kanye saving her life, her sexuality and her new found fame:
Honestly, Kanye saved my life, and I don’t even think about what I would have been; I just think about what I’m gonna be”
On her [bi-]sexuality
The thing that people don’t understand when it comes to a relationship with a man or woman is that it’s not about sex at all, even though that’s the first thing that pops in your head. It’s about the love and the vibe you get from the person, and I believe you can find that in anyone.” And even with being in a bit of denial about her newfound place in pop culture, she still recognizes the need for privacy every now and then.
On having fans and paparazzi
Well, I don’t look at myself as [a celebrity]. I’m just a dope chick from South Philly! I mean, it’s crazy when fans come up to me and cry and just want a hug from me. It bugs me out! But it’s really cool. Sometimes it does get overwhelming because, for example, I like to be on the beach with my man with no top on… I’m very comfortable with my body… But there’s no privacy – that’s the only thing that overwhelms me. Every time I see a light flash I think it’s the paparazzi. Those f*ckers give me anxiety.”
