Amber Rose and Kim Kardashian have become unlikely allies in the wake of the latter’s renewed efforts to break the internet and the many forms of shade and trolling that followed. Rose has always been proud of her sultry image and never ashamed of her stripper years, and Kardashian enjoys the same devil-may-care attitude (though she does care about the attention).
Like everyone else in the world (except for us civilians), Rose is enjoying herself at SXSW to promote her new venture, as she’s lent her likeness to the Zoobe messaging app. She hits on her distaste for Donald Trump and her adoration for Hillary Clinton. And she details plans for further #SlutWalks on an annual basis. Naturally, it’s Amber’s talk of sisterhood with Kim that makes the most waves, particularly because Beyonce’s name comes up:
“It’s bullsh*t, and this is the thing: They come at me and Kim so hard because I was a stripper and she had a sex tape. So if we could sing, it would be OK if we were on stage half-naked. We all love Beyonce, but she’s on stage half-naked and twerking all the time, yet people say, oh, she has talent so she’s able to do that. We don’t have the talent that Beyonce 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.”
