Amber Rose Responds to Kanye West Thanking Philly For Her
Rucuss staffNovember 3, 2011
Kanye West gave Philadelphia fans an ear full when his “Watch the Throne” tour made it to town.
The usually arrogant rapper let his guard down and spoke from his heart. West allegedly gushed about his ex-squeeze Amber Rose. West said to the packed arena, “To the city of Philly, I want to thank y’all for making the incredible person that this song was made for…”
West continues, “The one place I f*cked up the most is that I thought you’d always be mine, always be mine, I thought you’d always be mine.”
GlobalGrind caught up with Rose today (Thursday) and when asked about the dedication she didn’t even have a clue that West made those comments. Here’s a few excerpts from the interview. She talks about West, Kim Kardashian and Justin Bieber:
GlobalGrind: Kanye recently shouted you out when he was on stage in Philly. He basically thanked Philly for making you. What do you think about that?
Amber Rose: He thanked Philly for making me?
He said: “To the city of Philly, I want to thank y’all for making the incredible person that this song was made for…”
I think, sometimes, you don’t know what you have until it’s gone! When you do have a beautiful thing and it’s so good and it’s so beautiful, you think it’s always going to be there, you take it for granted. I guess that’s it.
As a person in the public eye who has had her fair share of drama, do you have an opinion about what’s going on with the Kardashian divorce and Justin Bieber’s baby mama drama?
Justin Bieber and Kim Kardashian, they’re both way more famous than I am, so I’m sure they’re getting it probably a little more than I do or did. We’re all human beings, celebrity or not, we all make mistakes. We all go through trials and tribulations in our lives and you have to overcome it. Just pray. Whatever you believe in, just pray and really keep your life very positive, that’s what I do.
If you follow me on Twitter, you know I’m all about women’s empowerment, girl power, being inspirational, being dope and doing things that make me happy. At the end of the day, you can’t live your life for other people. People are always going to judge you no matter what. They’re going to judge me on my music, they’re going to judge me on my hair, they’re going to judge me on my outfit, but at the end of the day I’m happy! So, Justin Bieber, he’ll get over it. Whatever happens, he’ll move on, he’s super talented, he’ll still be successful.
With Kim Kardashian, I think a lot of people think that it was all fake, it was all phony. You never know what goes on in someone’s life, you can only really assume. You never know what happened! People judge me all the time but they don’t know my life, they don’t know where I come from, what I go through, or what I’ve been through.
Complex Magazine also interviewed Amber Rose and after her 50th question about West’s response she had a different answer this time around. Here’s what she said:
I’ll say this—I didn’t even know about it. This is my 50th interview today and every single person has asked me, and it made me go see what the hell they were talking about, because I don’t keep up on the current events of Kanye. I just don’t look him up.
Kanye called me an incredible person, and I take that as an apology. And if it was an apology, I forgive him for being an asshole. I don’t hate him.
A lot of it is just negativity and I don’t like to bring that energy into my life. But I did look at it and he said that, he said um, “When I said that I didn’t like your dress, I was an asshole. When I said that I didn’t like your hair, I was an asshole.”
And he was an asshole. He was. I feel like he gets that now, and he’s remorseful about being an asshole to me.
But he called me an incredible person, and I take that as an apology. And if it was an apology, I forgive him for being an asshole. I don’t hold any grudges. I don’t hate him. I want him to find a girl and for him to treat her better than he treated me.
The next girl, she doesn’t deserve that. I found pure happiness with Wiz. Why wouldn’t I want that for Kanye? I want everyone to have that, to feel the way I feel about Wiz.
