When Amber Rose wants to drop a truth bomb, she drops it hard.
After the inane kerfuffle that was ~the infamous ‘Famous’ lyric~ saga, Amber Rose has brought up another issue of consent that blatantly obvious, but got swept under the rug due to the ensuing and energy-draining feud between Kanye West, Kim Kardashian-West and Taylor Swift.
[Look, we’re not sure if we can rewrite the entire feud again – we truly feel that if we have to fully write it out again, you’ll be likely to find us physically shaking in a corner somewhere, in the foetal position. You can enlighten yourself HERE, then HERE.]
In summary, Taylor received a call from Kanye, asking for consent to use a sexual lyric about her.
And Amber Rose is not happy that she wasn’t extended that same courtesy, seeing as Kanye used a naked mannequin of her for his video for the song.
The video featured naked imagery of Kim and Kanye next to George W. Bush, Anna Wintour, Donald Trump, Rihanna, Chris Brown, Ray J, Caitlyn Jenner, Bill Cosby and, of course, Taylor Swift and Amber.
You can see it here:
The model/television host explained on her new VH1 talk show ‘The Amber Rose Show’, and talked about being next to Kanye when he originally interrupted Taylor at the VMAs in 2009.
“I remember the repercussions … He was so remorseful, I mean he really felt so bad, because it wasn’t about Taylor. It was about Beyonce and her video. We all know that Beyonce should have won that. It’s no shade.”I know that Kanye would never go through that again without calling Taylor and saying ‘Heads up, I’m about to write this verse real quick, just want to make sure you’re cool with it.’ I know that about Kanye.Why didn’t I get a phone call for using a naked wax figure? Taylor gets a call, but I don’t.”
Rose finished off with,
“Please stay the fuck out of the news so I don’t have to talk about your ass no more.”
