Amber Rose is one of those people that you see everywhere but no absolutely nothing about. She recently had a Marilyn Monroe inspired photoshoot with YRB Magazine and gave a little more insight as to who she is. Born in South Philly, PA and of Cape Verdean/Italian decent, she talks about her upbringing, her confidence, how she owes Kanye and more.

On Her Upbringing:
“I grew up very poor, raised by a single mother,” Amber says. “We didn't have much as far as material things, but we had love and we had fun all the time. She raised me to have confidence and always taught me to be humble no matter what God brought my way… I’m confident in everything I do in life.”  

On Her Confidence and Sexual Preference:
“I’m very comfortable with my body, even in my home I’m always naked. I love being free – no hair and no clothes!” And regarding her preference of gender in a relationship?  Gender isn’t the real issue as far as she’s concerned – “The thing that people don’t understand when it comes to a relationship with a man or woman is that it’s not about sex at all, even though that’s the first thing that pops in your head. It’s about the love and the vibe you get from the person, and I believe you can find that in anyone.”

On Her "Celebrity" Status:
“Well, I don't look at myself as [a celebrity]. I'm just a dope chick from South Philly!” Amber laughingly proclaims. “I mean, it's crazy when fans come up to me and cry and just want a hug from me. It bugs me out! But it’s really cool. Sometimes it does get overwhelming because, for example, I like to be on the beach with my man with no top on… I'm very comfortable with my body… But there’s no privacy – that’s the only thing that overwhelms me. Every time I see a light flash I think it’s the paparazzi. Those fuckers give me anxiety.” 

On Kanye West:
“Honestly, Kanye saved my life, and I don’t even think about what I would have been; I just think about what I’m gonna be”
