Amber Rose recently appeared on Complex’s Everyday Struggle to talk about life and offer a perspective on the business of fame. Kanye, the Kardashians and other notables featured in the discussion – but the tidbit that got our attention was a throwaway comment halfway through.
Speaking on skills acquired as a professional stripper, Rose highlights the persuasive techniques she's crafted over the years and how they’ve helped her in the boardroom and in operating The Amber Rose Foundation, 'a not-for-profit organisation that aims to promote discussion about women’s rights and equality issues.'
‘I apply [the techniques] when I go into meetings with big companies. I’ve got a sneaker deal. I wasn’t supposed to have a sneaker deal; I was a stripper.’
Nothing more was said regarding her sneaker’s model or brand – though Rose's gift of the gab suggests that when it come out, it will be exactly as she wanted.
