Amber Rose is so fierce, she’s writing a whole book on it!
Releasing in late October, the 31-year-old’s self-help page turner, How To Be A Bad Bitch, is described as delivering “a message to all women in this fiercely fearless guide: work hard, love yourself, embrace your femininity and sexuality, and most importantly, chase the best vision of you possible.”
“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.”
And while there is nothing scary about her social media presence, it’s clear she’s putting out an image that you can love your body at any age, after however many kids, or whatever circumstances.
She also completely embraces her past as a stripper in her younger years. Admitting that she first tried to get into it at just 15-years old, Miz Rose described:
“I did it and I was like, ‘Oh, hell no, I cannot do this.’ I was a kid. I think I was still a virgin at the time. Being onstage with my boobs out, it was like, ‘Oh my god, this is not for me.'”
Though by the age of 18, she says she tried it again:
“That was the best time of my life! 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 never sexually assaulted or [anything]. I was young, beautiful, I was onstage, I wasn’t really ashamed of my body. I made lifelong friends.”
Guess it’s that same kind of attitude that’s attributed to her enviable confidence, which she boasts now. Amber confessed:
“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.'”
You keep doing you, Amb!!
