Amber Rose is the very definition of self-made. She wasn’t born famous, by no definition of the word, and she for sure wasn’t born rich. Born Amber Levonchuck, this Italian and African female rose through the ranks from the very bottom.
At the age of 15, after her parents divorced, Amber began stripping to help with the bills. About 10 years later, in 2008, she appeared in Young Jeezy and Kayne Wests’ music video “Put On.” From there, Amber went on to sign with modeling agency Ford Models; she posed in Louis Vuitton’s print ad and walked in New York Fashion Week for Celestino, an evening wear line. All the while… She appeared in music video after music video.
Along the way, she began dating Kanye West. When that ended, she married Wiz Khalifa, really solidifying her stardom status. The 15-year-old who began stripping for her family now has a net worth of about 12 million dollars.
Regardless of public opinion, Amber Rose is body positive and uses her fame to encourage women everywhere to be just as body positive as she is. Beating her feminist point into society’s thick skull, Amber Rose recently posted a more than reveling photo on IG. She got some backlash for it, but she took in stride.
Let freedom ring
Amber has over four million Twitter followers, and she never ceases to interact with any of them. She retweeted this tweet from @molebo_8, saying:
“Teacher: define freedom
Me: well @darealamberrose
Teacher: legendary answer right there”
Amber’s real fans and supporters know that she is a fun-loving, body positive, no-f**ks-given type of female. So, when she posts irregular photos on Instagram, they just go with it.
The post in question was taken down after about two hours because it violated Instagram’s policies about nudity, but while it was up… The post got well over a couple thousand likes.
Good Ol’ Twitter
Where Instagram lacks, Twitter picks up its slack. The post apparently doesn’t violate Twitter’s policies, as her tweet of the photo is standing strong. In the picture’s first 19 hours posted, it got over 27 thousand retweets and 56 thousand likes.
