"It's bulls**t, 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 told the Daily Beast. "So if we could sing, it would be OK if we were on stage half-naked. We all love Beyonce, 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.' We don't have the talent that Beyonce 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," she continued. "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."
It didn't take long for the 32-year-old model's mention of Beyonce to get the Bey Hive buzzing on Rose's Instagram account. Aside from spamming her comments with bee emojis, Rose also got plenty of NSFW mentions.
"Hey, I don't mind naked women, just don't put yourself up against Beyoncé, it's like comparing Walmart to LV... We are not talking apples and apples are we," one of the more tamer comments reads.
Rose took to Twitter on Tuesday to clarify her comments on the "Formation" singer, stressing that she herself is a Beyonce fan.
"Was just speaking on Classism. Look it up maybe it applies to ur life," Rose tweeted. "Don't take my words out of context ? I cried twice when I met her Lol."
"Wait y'all not about to [Bey Hive] Muva Lol When I'm apart of the Beyhive! TF?," she added. "I mentioned her cuz she is the most talented and beautiful....."

Rose's Daily Beast interview isn't the first time she's talked about classism. Last Wednesday, she called out singer Pink after the "Just Give Me a Reason" singer threw some not so subtle shade at Kim Kardashian's nude selfie.
"Pink, we've seen u damn near naked swinging from a rope (Beautifully) but what's the difference between a rope, a pole and a pic on Instagram? Classism," Rose wrote. "Because u sing while ur half naked does that make it 'Classy' or is it because u have a 'talent?'"
