Behind Her Shades: Amber Rose Talks Rapping & Her Dream Collaborations

Earlier this month, South Philly socialite Amber Rose debut single “Fame” premiered on the Interweb. Believe it or not, some critics are actually feeling the track and even said that Rose has a chance at pursuing a music career. I personally think the song is cool. On the uptempo/pop tune track, Rose expresses the way she was scrutinized when she first came into the industry, paparazzi harassing her to get flicks and her journey to becoming an overnight sensation. Rose also sings about the ups and the downs of the glamorous life such as being flown around the world in private jets and shopping for exclusive bags. VIBE caught up with Rose while she was in New York City. She talked about her first single, rapping and dream collaborations. Below are some excerpts:

On Her First Single:
“It’s so perfect and I didn’t know that was actually gonna be my first single but I was just like I’ll put “Fame” out for free. It’s not gonna be on iTunes or anything like that. It’s just for the fans to understand a little bit more of my life and you know there’s a lot of young kids or people in general that want to be famous but they don’t really know what that entails.  That’s why I put out “Fame.”
On Rapping:
“Yea. I definitely rap and I sing and my music is fun. It’s all dance music. I have an inspirational song that’s really dope. I have some records that are just plain fun, like you just want to party, jump around and go crazy to. “
Dream Collabos:

“I would really, really love to do a song with Pitbull and LMFAO. They’re probably like my two favorites. I’ve always loved Timbaland as well.”

Dope Or Nope? Rick Owens Men’s Hiking Boots ($950)

Rick Owens is an American fashion designer from California. He was born and raised in Porterville and studied fine arts at Otis/Parsons (now known as Otis College of Art and Design) in Los Angeles for two years before dropping out and taking pattern-making and draping courses at Los Angeles Trade-Technical College. Owens label was started in 1994. In 2001, he signed with Italian sales agent Eo Bocci Associati for worldwide distribution and his production moved to Italy.

The Rick Owens Men’s Hiking Boot for spring/summer ’12, in grey were recently released. “This rugged boot is Rick Owens’ interpretation of a hiker/workboot style. Its round-toed shape and thick sole are classic Rick Owens’ themes, making the boot a fitting addition to the designer’s collection for spring/summer. Crafted from thick premium suede, in a summery shade of grey, the boots are an unfussy design. They feature the Rick Owens’ unlaced construction and the elongated tongue that has become one of his signature touches. Finally, they are fastened up the inner-ankle with a metal zipper,” Source.

When Jealousy Ends A Friendship: Nene Leakes Is The Reason Why Jennifer Williams & Evelyn Lozada Are No Longer Friends

All you Basketball Wives (BBW) fans are in for a treat this upcoming season of BBW Miami. As usual, the scripted reality show will be filled with females drama. This time around, the tables turned and Jennifer Williams & Evelyn Lozada are going at each other on the show. The two ladies are no longer friends because Williams is friends with Real Housewives of Atlanta star Nene Leakes. Below is what Williams told Sister 2 Sister magazine:

Let me tell you what she’s mad over ‘cause this always comes up. She hates the fact that I’m really good friends with NeNe [Leakes], and she hates the fact that me and Mashonda are good friends. I feel like it’s all coming from a place of hurt, and she’s turning it into anger.

Why do you care who I’m friends with? Like, that’s ridiculous. I live in New York. You live in Miami. I don’t care who you hang out with. I’m kinda over it because I just feel like I’m at a point at my life where I’m trying to get rid of negative energy,” she said. “To me, I feel like it’s something so minuscule. It’s not like I slept with Chad. It’s not something irreparable. It’s something stupid that you’re mad over. If you really are mad because I have other friends, I think that’s completely ridiculous.

I don’t say anything to her, and she doesn’t say anything to me. I think it’s always unfortunate when you have so much history with a person for so long and then something stupid happens.

NeNe is such a good person. I don’t think you really find a lot of people in the same business that you bond with because I feel like everyone is so competitive and everybody is so worried about the next person doing more than them, and it’s not like that with her at all. She’s always trying to encourage me. She’s just always trying to uplift me, and I need people like that around me. I love that about her. There’s no jealousy. There’s no competition. We try to complement each other.

I don’t pick my friends based on if they’re on a TV show or what they do, if they’re a celebrity. [NeNe] and I have something in common, and the same with Mashonda. It’s a real friendship. We don’t have to tweet each other every day. It’s genuine. We really do have a friendship outside of TV and all this.”
