The cover of Amber Rose’s forthcoming book, “How to Be a Bad B----,” has been released -- and it shows the 31-year-old hip-hop artist and model baring almost all. The self-help book is scheduled for release in October, and Rose shared a photo of the cover with fans on Instagram on Saturday.
The image looks like a hybrid of a Harlequin romance novel and a picture from a Greek mythology book, according to E! News. The photo was shot by famed photographer David LaChapelle. It features Rose posing in profile amid black rocks near a shoreline, triumphantly holding a bow and arrow above the slain body of an enemy. Her silver hair is highlighted by a hint of gold on her feet, arms and body.
Rose is pictured wearing a super skimpy gold string bikini top. The cover is the second seen for the book, which Rose announced earlier this year. The first showed her standing in a white, cleavage-baring cut-out top and sunglasses. Rose is no stranger to risqué looks.
The model has urged her followers to head to Amazon to pre-order the book. Strangely enough, the book’s official Amazon listing features a much more demure shot of Rose against a white backdrop. In “How to Be a Bad B----,” Rose shares her "secrets on how to lead a powerful life."
In the book, the model gives helpful advice and personal anecdotes. The book covers finances, career, love, beauty, and fashion while emphasizing confidence and positive self-acceptance. According to Amazon, Amber delivers a message to all women in this fiercely fearless guide: Work hard, love yourself, embrace your femininity and sexuality, and most importantly, chase the best vision of you possible.
According to a synopsis provided on the website, the book is about a “self-respecting, strong female who has everything together. This consists of body, mind, finances, and swagger; a woman who gets her way by any means necessary.” The book will be published by Simon & Schuster imprint Gallery Books. “Amber Rose is the ultimate cool girl who you want to be best friends with. I know a lot of women who will want to read this book,” Jennifer Bergstrom, vice president and publisher of Gallery Books, said in February.
