It was all good just a few weeks ago, literally. Just days before Amber Rose’s debut SlutWalk, she visited Big Boy’s Neighborhood at L.A.’s Real 92.3, and excitingly revealed that she would be gracing the pages of GQ Magazine.
However, when the special profile feature hit the newsstands and the web, Rose wasn’t pleased with the published piece. In particular, the Sister Code actress and How to Be a Bad Bitch writer had a major issue with the way that the publication introduced her to their readers.
“Kanye’s infamous ex” and “Wiz Khalifa’s baby mama” were the two leading descriptors the writer labeled her with, followed by “America’s toughest bald babe since Sigourney Weaver in Alien 3.” But even the latter of the statement didn’t smooth things over for Ms. Rose.
Yesterday (Oct. 20), Amber took to Instagram TO address GQ, saying that they tried to “dumb” her down:
Really @gq??? I’m so much more then Kanye’s Ex or Wiz’s baby’s mama. Damn, why the fuck did u guys reach out to me for this article and photoshoot? To dumb me down? I talked about feminism and my Slutwalk… Wtf nice title smh I expected so much more from u guys and I’m so disappointed. I was so excited to be featured in GQ not realizing I was shooting for a tabloid. My slutwalk was for ignorant shit like this. Oh “Her beautiful dark twisted journey to the top”? Nice pun. Negative af. Thx for nothing.
