Amber Rose is sick and tired of people saying she’s only famous because of her high profile relationship with Kanye West, but Rose says she evolved since then so don’t keeping pigeon-holing her she tells The Daily Beast.”The misconception—and I still hear this seven years later, to this day—is, ‘You’re only famous for Kanye.’ Initially, absolutely. In 2009, when they’re like, ‘Amber Rose—Kanye’s girlfriend,’ I was like, ‘OK, that’s pretty accurate. That’s what it is.’ But I didn’t ask to be famous, and I didn’t even talk or do interviews for two years, because I thought, ‘I don’t want this. I’m not famous.'”
“Over time, with going out in public, I realized it would never go away, so I didn’t have any choice but to progress. Everything I’ve done since then is my own doing, and I’ve worked my f*cking ass off for everything I have. But Wendy Williams put Charlamagne on. Jay Z put Kanye on! But they don’t do that to men, and they always want to diminish my accomplishments and put them on someone else when I work really hard.”
Amber is right, but people won’t give it to her just like when people say Kim K. is famous for her sex tape, she is beyond past that but people associate the origin of her fame.
