Amber Rose is SO done with being known as Kanye West's ex-girlfriend!
Following the release of Kanye's INSANE and x-rated Famous video featuring a nude wax figure of Amber, she spoke to the Daily Beast about the shady homage.

Essentially, the model is taking umbrage to the fact West's vid insinuates that he made her "famous" — just like Taylor Swift. Now that the momma is a bonafide business woman with a VH1 show in the works, this common "misconception" has become a tired cliché.
In the beauty's very calm and measured response (take note, Yeezy!), she explained:
"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."
Way to point out the double standard, girl! It's funny how men can open doors for other men without backlash.
On another note, it's nice to see Amber taking the high road in this situation. While we were LIVING for her #fingersinthebootyassb*tch shade against the rapper a few months ago, this side of the momma is also great.
Whose side are YOU on in this ongoing feud?
