*Amber Rose acknowledges that she and Kim Kardashian may not be savvy enough to sustain profitable careers without taking their clothes off, still – she believes that’s no reason to shame attention whores, and females who define their sense of self-worth by the number of likes their nude selfies garner on social media.
While promoting her new digital character “Muva” at SXSW, Rose chatted with Complex about her decision to defend Kim’s latest nude #selfiegate controversy.
I feel that people make a big deal out of it because it’s me and Kim, but I really would’ve did it for anybody. I’m not just a feminist when someone is super famous, I’m a feminist every single day of my life. That’s my passion, that’s what I do. I thought it was fucked up and I felt like I needed to say something regardless of our past. The fact that I dated her husband five years ago, six years ago — which is so irrelevant right now. But it really does not matter. You just have to do what’s right. And I did.
She also explained why her history with Kanye West is no reason for her not to cape for Kim.
Kim is her own person. They’re not one person together. She’s her own being. I forgave him for an apology that I never received because I’m a bigger person and I let shit go — to move on with my life and to be a positive person. I never received an apology for him for his 30 showers comment. For him to come out even further and talk about my son and say that, you know, Wiz got trapped by a stripper and you know all this negative shit…it was really unfortunate because — I already forgave you for something that you never even apologized for — and then you come with that. You don’t ever ever talk about somebody’s baby. So, I feel like he knew that he was wrong. I still don’t like him as a person, I probably never will, but you know it’s really irrelevant because me and him we absolutely have no relationship and it just doesn’t even matter.

Rose elaborated on her anti-slut-shaming – defender of Kim K. mission in a new interview with the Daily Beast.
We don’t have the talent that Beyoncé has, so we get criticized as former sex workers, but at the end of the day we’re just women — we’re all women — and we should all embrace each other. No one is greater. We’re all the same. So, to criticize us as incapable of being smart businesswomen because Kim has a reality show and I’m a socialite and we don’t sing is stupid. We’ve both been in movies, and we take our acting, business ventures, and everything else very seriously.
