Playing Amber Rose Responds to Kanye West's Controversial 'Famous' Music Video: 'I've Worked My F**king A** Off!'

The Amber Rose vs. Kanye West drama continues!

Just one week after the rapper debuted his "Famous" music video at The Forum in Inglewood, California, his famous ex has seemingly spoken out on the project in a candid interview with The Daily Beast.

While Rose didn't address the music video specifically in the interview, she did seem to reference West's most notorious line from the track, in which he raps, "I made that b***h famous."

Though West was clearly calling out Taylor Swift in his lyrics -- "I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex" -- Rose makes it clear she doesn't want West to be credited for making her a household name, which apparently happens quite frequently.

"The misconception -- and I still hear this seven years later, to this day -- is, 'You're only famous for Kanye,'" Rose, who dated the father of two from 2008 to 2010, revealed. "Initially, absolutely. In 2009, when they’re like, 'Amber Rose -- Kanye's girlfriend,' I was like, 'OK, that's pretty accurate. That's what it is.'"

"But I didn't ask to be famous, and I didn't even talk or do interviews for two years, because I thought, 'I don't want this. I'm not famous,'" the 32-year-old model continued. "Over time, with going out in public, I realized it would never go away, so I didn't have any choice but to progress."

Now, she just wants people to recognize her for her own accomplishments.

"Everything I've done since then is my own doing, and I've worked my f**king a** off for everything I have," she added. "But Wendy Williams put Charlamagne on. Jay Z put Kanye on! But they don't do that to men, and they always want to diminish my accomplishments and put them on someone else when I work really hard."

When the reporter tried to ask more questions about Rose's former relationship with Kim Kardashian's husband, she quickly noted she's "not talking about Kanye at all."

Rose was one of the 12 celebrities whose likeness was used in West's NSFW music video, appearing naked in a bed next to Kardashian, Swift, West, Bill Cosby, Caitlyn Jenner, Chris Brown, Ray J, Donald Trump, Rihanna, Anna Wintour and George W. Bush.

While the others have remained silent on the NSFW video, which exclusively debuted on TIDAL, Ray J and Brown weren't shy about speaking out.

ET's Kevin Frazier caught up with Ray J backstage at the BET Awards last month, where he revealed the video had caused some arguments between him and his fiancée, Princess Love.

"Man, I'm just trying to stay positive," he said. "I'm engaged. My marriage is all messed up 'cause of craziness. I'm not part of nothing crazy."

"I walk down a good path," he added. "My fiancée tripping. It's all bad in my world, and that ain't cool. Don't put me part of nothing that's weird, that don't make no sense. Can I grow up?"

Brown's reaction was a little less serious, as he simply poked fun at his wax figure’s appearance via Instagram. "Why I gotta have the plumbers butt/crack showing WAX figure?" he captioned a screenshot from the video. "This n***a KANYE CRAZY, talented, but crazy."
