Anti-slut shaming advocate Amber Rose slammed Beyoncé, saying the former Destiny’s Child star is allowed to be as sexy as she wants because she can sing. Conversely, Rose argued she and “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” star Kim Kardashian are degraded because Rose used to be a stripper and Kardashian has an infamous leaked sex tape with her ex-boyfriend Ray J.
“It’s bull----, and this is the thing: they come at me and Kim so hard because I was a stripper and she had a sex tape,” Rose, 32, told the Daily Beast Tuesday. “So if we could sing, it would be okay 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 continued: “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.”
Naturally, Beyoncé’s fans, known as the Beyhive, didn’t take well to Rose criticizing their beloved role model. But Rose didn’t budge from her stance. “Was just speaking on Classism. Look it up maybe it applies to ur life. Don’t take my words out of context. I cried twice when I met her Lol,” Rose wrote, denying she slammed Beyoncé. Wait y’all not about to ___ Muva Lol When I’m a part of the Beyhive! TF? I mentioned her cuz she is the most talented and beautiful. ...”
