Amber Rose Back Pedals on “Ugly Philly Girls” Statements

Published On August 3, 2017 | By patrice | The latest posts

After recently making her media rounds and telling of the great memories that she’d had when growing up in South Philly, urban model and mother-of-one, Amber Rose, has now made her city upset with some of her most recent comments about allegedly being the most attractive woman in the city of Philadelphia.

Claiming that she’d grew up in a city where people aren’t traditionally attractive, she was also heard on the Drink Champs podcast saying, “I don’t know how I can say this without sounding [expletive] up, but a lot of the people where I’m from aren’t traditionally attractive people.”

Being questioned about that interview, which seemed to send Twitter into a fire storm, here is what Rose had to say about the aftermath of her ridiculous comments:

“I was speaking as far as how social and societal standards portray beauty. [They weren’t] my thoughts on beauty. But doing interviews, sometimes things don’t come out exactly how you want people to hear it,” Rose told me by phone. “You’re saying something and they’re taking it a certain way … I love everyone. I find the beauty in everyone. I’m on record in a million different interviews that I’ve done where I’ve said I find the beauty in everyone.”

If you look at her dating history… Maybe she does have a point…

“I don’t have a particular preference as far as the guys that I date,” said Rose, who has been romantically linked to rappers Kanye West and Wiz Khalifa. “So I’d never point the finger and say, ‘You’re ugly. You’re ugly.’ It’s almost funny at this point, because I never said Philly girls are ugly. Those were never my words.”

“People think that I think that I am superior because I am light-skinned,” Rose said. “I don’t feel that way at all. I dated black women for years. I’ve had full relationships with black women. Dark-skinned black women at that. That’s not a secret, as well.

“It’s just people perpetuating negative stigmas on me because they think that I feel superior, and I do not at all,” she said. “I’ve never said black girls aren’t attractive. I’ve never said anyone in Philly isn’t attractive. I said ‘traditionally,’ which I should have said as far as social and society standards of beauty.

“It just came out the wrong way. I would never say my entire city is ugly.”

Wow! Let’s all just wish Rose luck while living in Philly, because from the looks of it, she might not make it…
