In a new interview with the Daily Beast, Amber Rose went on record to say she doesn't understand why she and Kim Kardashian are constantly getting criticised as "former sex workers," while Beyoncé gets a pass.
It's bullshit, 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 Beyoncé, 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 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.
Amber put herself and Kim on the same level as Beyoncé. It seems Amber may not fully understand the amount of decisions Beyoncé must make as a recording artist, label-mate, and business woman. Beyond just recording music and dancing on stage, being an artist entails so much more, and a lot goes on behind the scenes.
After pointing out comparisons to Beyoncé, she then continued to raise an eyebrow against male celebrities.
No one gives a fuck that Channing Tatum was a stripper. He's an established actor who's at the Vanity Fair parties and the Oscars, but for me, no matter how far I go in my life, I see these stories that keep referring to me as a 'former stripper.' No one says 'former stripper' about Channing Tatum, or 'former McDonald's worker' about Brad Pitt. No one does that to men.
Do you agree with Amber's stance or do you think she's just salty because her career hasn't turned out the way she hoped? Do you think the General Public enforces this double standard or do some celebrities impose it on themselves?
