Amber Rose Hits Cosmo’s #InternetsMostFascinating List, Admits Stripping “Was The Best Time Of My Life!”
The model talks stripping, social media and becoming a “feminist monster”…
Amber Rose has been named one of the Internet’s Most Fascinating by US Cosmopolitan and opens up to the magazine about her stripping past and social media prowess.
"That was the best time of my life!" says Amber, of the seven years she spent stripping, aged 18-25. "Oh my god, I had so much fun. I really did. All the girls were really cool. The guys weren't allowed to touch you.
“I was young, beautiful, I was onstage, I wasn't really ashamed of my body. I made lifelong friends."
However, after finding fame as a model and high profile relationships with Kanye West and Wiz Khalifa, we’re more likely to see Amber stripping off for her 6.7million Instagram followers.
"I went from 1.2 million [Instagram followers] to 5.5 million in a couple months," says the mother-of-one. "I think the turning point was when I just stopped giving a f**k about what people say. One day, I just woke up and I was like, 'You know what? I can't sit around and stress anymore about the Internet and what people say about me. I just gotta do me.'"
Her social media explosion has also seen Amber grow in other ways, with the blonde bombshell telling Cosmo it has made her more of a feminist. "I was always about girl power, but I didn't quite get it because I did always feel like I had to be completely submissive to a man. I was always very unhappy doing that. I think I needed time to grow up.
“You get to a certain point in your life where you really find out who you are, and sometimes that happens when you're 25, but for me, it was 31. I didn't quite know that before. I guess social media did help create the feminist monster that I've become.”
