Amber Rose has been on “Ether” mode as of late. After inviting Khloe Kardashian and her entire family to have several seats on Twitter, Muva also proved her tact and class by choosing not to air out Kanye West’s dirty laundry after he jumped in the mix.
Amber Rose did begin stripping at the age of 15. Amber Rose does post plenty of thirst trap pics on Instagram – string monokini anyone? Amber Rose is a mother and no, that will not stop her from posting instructional twerk videos.
Muva Rose is certainly no one to play with. While her truths and way of living may turn off the prudes in us all, there is much to learn from her, including these 10 lessons.
The most ignorant word in the English language might have to be “classy.”
We often use it as an adjective to describe refinement and respectability. However, I wrote before about the term also being used to justify and even mask some pretty despicable behavior from folks. This time around, it’s being used to encourage slut-shaming.
We all know how slut-shaming works: Basically, a woman can be an ax-murdering, tax-cheating, baby-kicking, don’t-know-how-to-fry-a-piece-of-chicken-worth-a-damn bogey(wo)man, but she better not have had sexual relations with multiple men outside of a good religious-based marriage (with a man), or else, she’s a slut. And there is nothing worse for a woman to be in the world than a slut, right?
Hell, you don’t even have to be promiscuous to be considered a “slut.” Sometimes a shortened hemline can get you that label. Sometimes it is how you talk or even where you were born, which could result in you wearing the scarlet letter. You can just be an attractive woman in a space where men are scarce and be hit with the “slut” label. I was actually called a “dumb slut” one time for cutting a guy off in traffic. Try to make sense of that one…
But while it is true that every woman in society has to maneuver around the landmines that can get them labelled as sluts, it is also true that “class” is often used as a shield to protect some while also being used as a tool to oppress others: like women of more marginalized identities.
I see much of that at the center of the Amber Rose and Khloe Kardashian Twitter/Instagram beef. Rose, who used to date Kanye West, who is now married to Kim Kardashian, called herself standing up for her new BFF, Blac Chyna, who has a child with rapper Tyga. In case you missed it, Tyga is allegedly getting a little too close with 17-year-old Kylie Jenner, the younger sister of Kim Kardashian, who was Chyna’s good friend at one time.
In an interview with The Breakfast Club, Rose says this:
Amber Rose: “She’s a baby, she needs to go to bed at 7 o’clock and relax. Nah, I’m over that. That’s ridiculous. He should be ashamed of himself. That’s how I feel, for sure.”
Angela Yee: “What happens if you run into them in LA?”
Rose: “I ain’t speaking to them. At all. That’s ridiculous He has a beautiful woman and a baby and left that for a 16-year-old that just turned 17. Like, hah. But guess what, that’s up to her and her mother.”
I get Rose’s point here. This is a grown man who broke up with the mother of his child only to turn around and pal around with an individual who hasn’t even come into adulthood yet. There is something predatory in all of it that bothers me. If I were Kris Jenner, no way would I want Tyga, who clearly has issues he needs to sort out internally, to be around my impressionable child. And if these were non-celebrities with non-celebrity identities, I think a whole lot of other folks would likely feel the same way about this situation too.
However, Rose’s last thought about it all being “up to her and her mother” is what she probably should have stuck with when asked to comment about their relationship. After all, none of this is any of her business. You don’t see Blac Chyna saying anything and sticking up for herself. Matter of fact, when the beef started, it was Chyna who sent out an Instagram message about how “unbothered” she was with the whole dust-up (some best friend she is…). So why is Rose being so messy?
Me thinks there is tinge of jealousy and envy simmering beneath the tweets. As noted in an article from Complex, in the same interview, Rose made some equally side-eye worthy remarks about another Kardashian sister. In particular, she tells the Breakfast Club:
“When Kim first came out, I was like, ‘Who the f**k is this Puerto Rican girl with Paris Hilton?! This b***h is beautiful!’ Yeah, I thought she was Puerto Rican, I’m from the East Coast. So, that’s initially what I thought of Kim. I was just like, ‘Wow, this girl’s amazing.’” So, what changed? “But it’s just sh*t that I see her do, like she posted a selfie, and she had like one of her boobs out of the bra or whatever. It’s just fake to me,” Rose said. “If I wanna have my titties out, on a beach, that’s exactly what I’m gonna do. “I’m not gonna have my titties out and be like, [impersonating Kardashian] ‘Oh my god! I can’t believe like, uh, they caught me with my boobs out!”
Well that might be because the masses don’t react the same way to a bare-breasted Rose as they do to a naked Kim K. And that is no shade. Both are beautiful women with exceptionally crafted bodies, but as Awesomely Luvvie once wrote, The Kim Kardashian Model doesn’t work for black women.”
In other words, while a topless and bottomless sex tape made by the daughter of a late high-powered attorney is viewed as shocking, cheeky and even artful, a nude Rose is not. Why? Because it’s not viewed anywhere out of the normal realm of what we kind of expected from a biracial former exotic dancer from the low-income part of South Philly. Therefore, no one is going to care too much if Rose is on the beach topless, because in the minds of the masses, she never embodied the ideals of what we deem as “classy” anyway – even if the “class” we are talking about here is who has access to selling “respectable” yet s*xy images.
And that has to rightfully bother Rose, who makes her living off of her image, especially her body. Truth be told, she should have been the one who #BrokeTheInternet with that viral and history-making editorial styled by Jean-Paul Goude. Hell, she has the better and more natural form, with the legitimate genetic roots. But that pesky white woman privilege got in the way of all of that. So once again, it is Kim K’s sexuality that gets endorsed and institutionalized by the system, while the blogs are debating if the pictures of Rose standing on a balcony overlooking a beach in a string bikini makes her looks like a classless slut, or worse, a classless slut and bad mom.
According to the Huffington Post, a study published last year in Social Psychology Quarterly has revealed “that when a particular group of women call each other ‘sluts,’ it has little to do with perceived or actual promiscuity, and everything to do with social class.” I can definitely see that. And I’m sure that’s what Kylie’s big sister Khloe meant to highlight when she decided to fire back at Rose in a series of tweets for meddling in family business. In particular, she writes in two tweets:
“’I was a stripper since I was 15 years old,’ Amber Rose told Foxx. Please don’t worry about my sister who has a career & her sh*t together at ONLY 17…people who live in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones. (2) Please stop talking about us in interviews mama. None of us talk about you.”
To which Rose would respond:
“I’ll be that lil whore to support my family like ur older sister is a whore 2 support hers. We’re even”
Well, those are just fighting words. And that’s what happened for the rest of the afternoon. The two “celebs” traded jabs, memes and old leaked pictures about who was the sluttiest of them all. A winner in the slut wars has yet to be declared, but it was clear that Rose definitely was in her feelings.
And who could blame her? If Rose was stripping since 15 years of age, then she didn’t have the privilege of protection, which Kylie has in her life. And I’m guessing the same can be said for Rose’s BFF, Blac Chyna, who started her dancing career supposedly at 18 years old. There was no silver spoon in place to pay off media, clean up images and pad her fall in the event that Tyga tried to screw her over and leave her as a single mother. Everything for those two has been a grind upwards. And while Kylie’s decisions are respected by the public at large as an exercise in being sexually liberated, unfortunately, we haven’t really come around to seeing either Rose or Chyna, who are adults now, as anything more than glorified sluts.
“Please Stop Talking About Us” Khloe Kardashian And Amber Rose Go At It Over Comments About Kylie And Tyga’s Relationship
By now, you may have noticed that Khloe is the clap back Kardashian. And after listening to…or hearing about Amber Rose’s Breakfast Club interview, she had a few things to say. In case you missed the interview, it wasn’t Amber’s thoughts on Kim that Khloe took issue with. It was Amber’s thoughts on Tyga and Kylie’s relationship.
In case you don’t know Amber Rose is now good friends with Blac Chyna. And Blac Chyna just so happens to be the mother of Tyga’s son. So, naturally Amber has probably seen first hand the type of shenanigans Tyga has put Blac Chyna through. And honestly, you don’t have to be an insider to see and know that Tyga and Kylie’s relationship is at worst sexual, predatory and exploitative; and at the very least, weird and inappropriate.
Amber: She’s a baby. She needs to go to bed. It’s 7’o clock. And relax. Nah, I’m over that. That’s ridiculous. He should be ashamed of himself. That’s how I feel for sure.
Yee: What happens if you run into them in LA?
Amber: I ain’t speaking to them. At all. He has a beautiful woman and a baby and left that for a sixteen year old that just turned seventeen. Nah.
But guess what, that’s up to her and her mother…
Listen, I really don’t hate those girls but I just don’t respect them.
Personally, I thought she went easy on them. And really, it was more a stab at Tyga than anyone else.
But apparently, big sis Khloe Kardashian didn’t see things that way. And she took to Twitter to vent.
“I was a stripper since I was 15 years old,” Amber Rose told Foxx. Please don't worry about my sister who has a career & her shit (1)
— Khloé (@khloekardashian) February 16, 2015
(She’s since deleted that second one.)
Please stop talking about us in interviews mama. None of us talk about you. (3)
— Khloé (@khloekardashian) February 16, 2015
Then she continued:
We get asked questions about people all the time and my sisters and I always take the high road and don’t answer. Truth is we don’t know these people. I don’t know Amber so why would I comment on her. I’m not going to comment on someone I don’t know. That’s unfair. We all hear things via social media or blogs but I would only want to comment on someone if I actually knew them and or had my own personal history with them. I would think others would want the same respect. 3 sides to EVERY story. His, hers and the truth. I’m not passing judgment but I wish others would do the same until they have FACTS.
And since Amber ain’t no punk, she had her own response.
@khloekardashian I'm happy u brought up the fact that I was a stripper at 15….

I have one word for Khloe: “Nah.”
You absolutely were trying to pass judgment and even throwing shade bringing up the fact that Amber Rose was stripping at 15. So save all of that no judgment crap. But bringing up the fact that Amber was stripping at 15 doesn’t really address the issue at hand, now does it? In fact, since Amber was doing too much, too soon, she’s in the proper position to tell other girls making similar mistakes to slow it down.
What I find interesting is that Khloe never addressed the real elephant in the room: the fact that her mother is allowing her just-turned-17-year-old daughter to galavant around the world with a man in his mid twenties. Even if they aren’t having sex, which is doubtful, it’s predatory as hell. And since it’s inappropriate and even possibly illegal, I don’t think it’s wrong or out of the question for Amber Rose, or anybody who cares about women’s issues, to be speaking about this. Girls far less famous and less rich than Kylie Jenner are being exploited by older men all the time, all over this country and all over the world. And honestly, it’s weird as hell that Kris Jenner is just ok with all of it or keeps trying to convince us that they’re just friends.
This is how Khloe ended the conversation.
Good thing, home girl knows when to bow out. Things would have gotten nasty in that ring…and all my money would have been on Amber.
If you’re active on Twitter and Instagram, there’s a good chance that you stumbled across this meme, which attempts to poke fun at recent reports that the Ku Klux Klan is now accepting Black, gay and Jewish members. In the photo, all three Kardashian sisters are wearing white outfits. Printed over the image are words that read:
“The only KKK to ever let Black men in.”
However, as we’ve witnessed in the past, memes get a little weird once celebrities join in on the shenanigans. So it’s expected that things got a little crazy when Khloe Kardashian shared the photo on Instagram and Twitter with a caption that read:
After being criticized for sharing the “distasteful” and “offensive” photo, Khloe removed it from her Instagram account. Khloe’s brother-in-law of sorts, Scott Disick, who also posted the meme; however, left his up. Khloe has yet to comment on the backlash received over the meme.
While it doesn’t seem that either of them meant to be offensive and although the meme clearly speaks to the Kardashian sisters’ love of Black men, Khloe and Scott’s actions prove that they’re ignorant and/or insensitive to the KKK’s history of terrorizing Black people. Something that should never be trivialized. Of course, neither Khloe or Scott are the original creators of the meme, but reposting it was not a wise thing to do.

In and out. One and done. According to Us Weekly Khloe Kardashian and French Montana are “on a break.” Eight months after the couple started dating, Khloe felt like it was time to take a break from Montana
A source told Us “They are on a break. The relationship got too heavy and Khloe needed to take a step back.”
Another source said that the reason for the break was because Montana, the 29-year-old Moroccan-born musician had become too needy for Kardashian.
“It grated on her that he became so dependent on her.”
The source also claims that the family, particularly Kris, never approved of him. Apparently, Kim and even former step-daddy Bruce were not here for Montana and skeptical of the rapper and his motives.
Khloe didn’t seem to be concerned though, not even after Montana admitted that he wanted to “capitalize” on the new attention he was receiving now that he was dating a Kardashian. (Sounding like Nikko Smith.) Montana later admitted that his words were taken out of context.
But for now she just wants to be a part from him.
Khloé Kardashian isn’t even officially divorced from her estranged husband, Lamar Odom, yet and it appears that she’s already on the brink of yet another nasty breakup…at least that’s what sources are claiming. According to Life & Style, not much has changed since French’s relationship with his estranged wife, Deen Kharbouch, when it comes to loyalty.
“She’s fed up with his cheating ways,” said one insider.
Snitches went on to say that while Khloé’s rebound romance was fun initially, things have already gone south in their five-month romance.
“She was having a good time,” the insider explains, “but now it’s becoming dramatic, and she wants out.”
So what’s keeping Khloé from walking away, you ask? Reportedly his connection with her family.
“Khloé hates that her family got involved because now it’s harder to sever ties.”
Khloe has yet to comment on the reports, but from the looks of it, she and French are still going strong. Earlier this week, she shared a photo of a bouquet of flowers believed to be from her beau and gushed about what a “lucky girl” she is.
“Oh man, I just LOVE surprises!!! I’m a lucky girl!!! #Smiling,” she wrote.
Only time will tell what’s really going on with these two.
‘I Don’t Look At It Like That:’ French Montana Doesn’t Seem To Think Dating A Kardashian Is Helping His Career
Khloe Kardashian is featured in the music video as well as the cover art for boyfriend, French Montana’s new single, “Don’t Panic”—something he admits definitely gave his new track a “spike.”
“It’s just the whole purge concept,” he explained of the cover art, to the New York Daily News, adding, “and us doing the video together. It’s the first video she ever did and it got a little spike.”
Though his career and his celebrity seem to be benefiting from his ties to the youngest Kardashian sister, French is shrugging off speculation that he is with Khloe to advance his career.
“I don’t look at it like that. It’s just Khloe, that’s my Koko,” he said. “She’s a real cool, down to earth person. I don’t think many people get to meet her to find that out. She’s the funniest person ever.”
He also spoke on people who don’t necessarily view Khloe and her family in the best light.
“When you’re in the limelight and you’re in that kind of position in life you’re always going to have haters and people who don’t like you just because you’re doing good,” he said. “I feel like once you get to know them, they’re really like (some) of the dopest people ever.”
Whether or not French entered the relationship with the intent of exploiting Khloe to advance his career is debatable, but there’s no denying that his name is now being mentioned in circles of people who weren’t checking for him before this relationship began.
Julissa Bermudez Shades Kim K, Celebrates BFF Adrienne Bailon For “NOT Laying On Your Back For the World To See”
We told you earlier today that Kim Kardashian and her sister Khloe had some words for Adrienne Bailon after she said being connected to the Kardashian label after dating youngest brother Rob hurt her career. Just a quick reminder of the statement that really set things off, Kim said this on Twitter:
“Funny how she says being with a Kardashian hurt her career yet the only reason she has this article is bc she is talking about a Kardashian.”
We forgot to mention that big sis Kourtney jumped in the mix with “STILL talking about us?!” and according to NecoleBitchie, Tyga’s girlfriend and new Kardashian BFF, Blac Chyna, threw a little shade too, saying “STFU … Adrienne … Girl bye”
While Bailon still hasn’t responded to such foolery (and she shouldn’t really), it’s her best friend and former “Empire Girls” co-star, Julissa Bermudez (who also hosted “106 and Park” for a short time before Rocsi and Terrence came on board) who is coming to her defense.
She got gully on Twitter this morning and said this to Miss Kimberly:
In response to this, Khloe Kardashian posted this on her Twitter account just a couple hours ago: “FDB”
Yes, that stands for “f**k dat b***h”
I’m just really confused at why Bailon’s comments were taken as such malicious ones. They were a little shady, but not worth a day full of back and forth keyboard thuggin’. But do you know who the real winner in all of this is?
Latina Magazine! Go pick up that new issue to check out Bailon’s full interview!
“#LetItGooooo”: Kim And Khloe Kardashian Go In On Adrienne Bailon For Comments About Past Relationship With Rob
We told you that Adrienne Bailon got her cover girl on for Latina Magazine, and looked gorgeous while doing so. But aside from talking about love and marriage, she talked about past love and heartbreak. If you’ll recall, for a time there in 2008, Bailon was featured on Keeping Up With The Kardashians because she was in a serious relationship with Rob Kardashian. So serious I guess, that Bailon got a tattoo on her butt with Rob’s name. Unfortunately, that relationship was shot to hell when Kardashian cheated on her, and even though it ended a long time ago, and she is in a committed relationship with producer Lenny Santiago, she still brings up Kardashian’s name quite a bit.
So in the Latina interview she decided to talk about the time they were dating, and went as far as to say that being attached to him and the Kardashian name even after they broke up hurt her career…
“To be stuck with that Kardashian label, that was so hurtful to me and to my career. I probably realized that too late—not that it would’ve affected my decisions in terms of who I dated, but it would’ve affected my decision to appear on the show. At the time, I didn’t think anyone would even care. To this day, people will still say, ‘You ruined Rob’s life!’ and I’ll think, Damn, I was still playing with Barbie dolls when I met him.
It’s common knowledge that he cheated on me, and it always bothered me that people were like, ‘Pero, why couldn’t you forgive him?’ Why are women always the ones who have to forgive? If you cheated on a man, he would be like, ‘You’re disgusting, and I want nothing to do with you.’ But women, we’re supposed to be like, ‘He messed up. He made a mistake.’ And, in my situation, it wasn’t like, ‘Oh my God! I made a mistake!’ He strategically planned things out so that he could cheat on me, and that to me was so disloyal.”
Someone who didn’t appreciate these comments was not Rob, but his famous sisters, Kim and Kourtney Kardashian. Interesting enough, both women boldly took to Twitter to say that she was kicking their brother while he is down (Rob is allegedly suffering with depression and an extensive weight gain). But really, it seemed like they were actually mad at the fact that she said being attached to the “Kardashian label” put a dent in her career:
A follower of Khloe told her that Bailon shouldn’t have said anything about Rob, and Khloe agreed, proudly sticking by the shade that her big sister threw.
What do you think though? Was Bailon doing too much? Or is it the Kardashian sisters who are doing the absolute most?
Khloe Kardashian and French Montana are officially “out.” The odd couple recently spoke with Angie Martinez at her new post over at Power 105.1 and their interview was quite telling. According to French, they were actually hooked up by Diddy one night at the studio.
“Khloe cool as hell, man. It was Puff. Puff was the one that put us together. I was like Puff –I forgot how it went,” he explained.
“It was me, Gabby, Ross, Puff, Meek. Everybody was in the studio. Scott [Disick, Kourtney’s husband] was there. Scott was drunk. I was, ‘like I got a party tomorrow’ and everybody was like, ‘we all coming.’ She [Khloe] was like ‘Hell yeah, I wanna go.’ Next day Puff was like ‘hit her’ to come to the party.”
Although they planned to go to the party, they never made it there.
“We end up not going to the party. We just end up chillin’. But nah, she cool peoples. We rockin,” French continued.
French also addressed the fact that he’s currently observing Ramadan, which means no eating until sunset, no smoking, no drinking and no sex—something that Khloe seemed to get a kick out of.
“No sex. [It’s] so fun [said sarcastically]. That’s why he’s wearing all white. He’s so pure and holy. … He’s virginal.[Laughs]”
Khloe was also quick to defend her relationship with French against critics.
“People are gonna comment no matter what. If I dated the most clean-cut perfect guy, they’re gonna comment. That’s just the way it is. If I’m having fun and if I like this kid, no one else should care, they’re not f****g him. [Laughs] Our maybe they are, I don’t know.”
