Back in the summer, I reported that model and actress Amber Rose is working on pursuing her music career with the help of her boyfriend Wiz Khalifa. Billboard.com The Juice caught up with Rose at the Soul Train Awards and she gave them an update on the album and upcoming projects. Below are some excerpts:

On working on her album and music career.

I’m still in the beginning stages of it right now. I’m working hard. I’m in the studio every single day. I’m just really inspired and motivated,” Amber Rose told The Juice. “My music is like house-club music, fun dance music. I’m singing, I’m rapping, I’m talking a little shit.”

On if Wiz Khalifa is on her album.

Of course! Of course, that’s my daddy!” “I brought everything to him. He’s like, ‘Baby you have to do this. You have talent. You write all your stuff,'” Rose said of Wiz. “He inspired me to do it.”

On her collaboration with clothing brand “Members Only.”

I’m designing for Members Only. It’s all leather, wools, [and] furs.”

His Side Of The Story: Fabolous Speaks On Emily & Thoughts On ‘Love & Hip Hop’

Brooklyn’s rapper Fabolous stopped by New York’s radio personality Angie Martinez show earlier in the week. As we all know, his ex-girlfriend and son’s mother Emily B is a cast on VH1‘s Love & Hip-Hop. During his interview with Angie, Fab talked about why he’s not 100% supportive of Emily’s decision to do the show, said he would be open to doing a family oriented based show with Emily, Kimbella, his music career and much more. Below are some excerpts:

On how he feels about Love & Hip Hop

It’s just not my cup of tea. It’s just one-side of what’s going on. I don’t bash it but I’m not really in support of it either. I don’t think it depicts me the way I am; it just depicts a one-sided version of what’s really going on.

Why not participate then?
Because it’s a few different things I don’t agree with the show. Ownership is one of them. There’s no ownership on her side and she’s kind of like a piece of somebody else’s show and I’m not with that. I put too many years of me working in this industry for me to be a piece of somebody else’s thing.

On if he’d be open to doing a family structured show
I would be involved in a show that was something like Run’s House. I can’t reference T.I’s show because I’ve never seen it. A family show. Even the Kardashian’s to me is more family branded and structured. I wouldn’t do a “For The Love of Fabolous” show, no. I would lean more to that type of show then I would do any of those other types of shows.
