Amber Rose: Women Should Use Their 'Seductive Skills' to Get Money From Their Significant Others
By Antoinette Bueno
Amber Rose's financial advice is definitely not PC.
The 32-year-old model offers her money tips to Time in a recent interview, telling the magazine that women should get money "by any means necessary."
"As women, we're fortunate enough to use our seductive skills in order to be able to get money from our significant others," she says. "I also talk about seduction in the book. A lot of women don't know how to seduce a man. It is extremely easy once you get to that point, and you can get anything you want out of them. And I know it might sound messed up, but once you get to that point, it's not using."
"It's not using a man, it's literally getting what you want by any means necessary," she adds.
And if you're doubting Amber's qualifications to give advice on running a successful business, she could care less. Amber says she made $1 million in 2011 alone.
"I am a mogul," she says. "I have a bunch of businesses, I'm now an actress, I'm an author, I went on an entire world tour and I don't even sing. So if that doesn't tell you that I am an entrepreneur, then I don't know what does."
She also brings up the double standard she's facing when it comes to her past.
"The fact that I was a stripper does not take away the fact that I'm smart, that I am witty, that I am capable of running my own business," she stresses. "There's famous guys that were drug dealers back in the day, and no one ever brings up that fact. But as a woman, they bring up the fact that I was a hustler. And it’s extremely unfair, and I just don't tolerate it."
In fact, Amber says being a stripper actually gave her the best preparation possible for her future career.
"Being a dancer definitely was like being in business school, because I constantly spoke to people," she explains. "I mean, I literally had to persuade a man to give me money out of his pocket. And I apply that to my daily life. Even getting a book [ 2015's How to Be a Bad B**ch], you have to have an initial meeting -- Hi, Simon and Schuster! -- with the publisher, and you have to sell yourself."
ET caught up with Amber in August, when she talked about her Amber Rose Slut Walk, which she organized to bring awareness to slut-shaming, victim blaming, rape and sexual assault.
"It brings awareness to a lot of men and women that [it happens] every single day," she said. "It has happened to me on so many different levels. … I really have been through some things. ... I lived it. Maybe one day I'll tell me story. Until then I feel like if I can just help other women get through what they've been through, then that can also help me get to the next level in my life."
