Amber Rose Slams The Entertainment Industry For Not Recognizing Her As A Trendsetter
Entrepreneur Amber Rose wants the entertainment biz to put some respect on her name. The “Slut Walk” ambassador took to Instagram to call out how the same industry that shames her simultaneously uses her brand of genius for their own ideas.
“It becomes extremely frustrating when brands are “inspired” 👀 by the movement and curate my actual life story and use it as a marketing tool,” the mother of one vented.
Accompanying her message were photos of her and her friend Blac Chyna rocking matching jumpsuits at the 2015 VMAs with the words hoe, slut, stripper and gold digger painted on the exterior.
Rose used this fashion moment to make a statement about owning the words people hurl at you to lessen their power.
At the time, Chyna said of the outfits: “We just wanted to paint a picture of what everybody already says about us.”
But now similar fits have infiltrated the mainstream fashion market, with Diesel launching a new campaign and clothing line with the tagline: “The more hate you wear, the less you care.”
The design of the clothes bear similarities to what Rose accomplished three years ago.
The 34-year-old went on to call out her ex, Kanye West, and his viral hit with rapper Lil Pump, “I Love It.”
“Two men made a song that said “you’re such a f*cking hoe I love it” but if I refer to myself as a hoe, take back any derogatory label and turn it into a positive or be confident in my sexuality in anyway mufuckas need 30 showers and I’m literally the evilest person on earth yet everyone wants to take my fucking swag but look down on me?”
It’s common for businesses to dive into subculture to create corporate profit from niche creativity. Women of color often lose out financially due to this theft. Amber Rose is one of those people.
