Amber Rose is showing her feminist colors again. After standing up for Kim Kardashian‘s naked selfie last week, the model has weighed in on the double standard she believes society places on women like herself and Kardashian, but seemingly not Beyonce.
“They come at me and Kim so hard because I was a stripper and she had a sex tape,” Rose tells The Daily Beast. “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.”
Rose says that public perception is skewed. “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,” she says.
Although she respects Beyonce as a woman and entertainer, Rose feels the criticism should either stop or be equal.
“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,” she says. ” We’ve both been in movies, and we take our acting, business ventures and everything else very seriously.”
