The recognizable model is set to judge deejays on 'Master of the Mix'
One thing model Amber Rose knows is a good party. In fact, she’s made a career out of it. From hosting hotel beach parties in Las Vegas to mansion pool parties in Virginia, Rose has monetized a good time.
Now, in her new role as judge on the second season of Centric and BET’s Master of the Mix, Rose will be critiquing spin masters from around the country on their party-hyping ways.
Loop 21 caught up with Rose hours before the launch party for her new show to discuss what qualifies her to critique deejays, what she thinks about Kanye West’s declaration in her hometown, her new music and her advice to Kim Kardashian.
Loop 21: Why did you decide to join Master of the Mix?
Rose: I decided to jump on board because, you know, I love to party. I love music and I felt like it was such a good fit for me. And me being a judge, I solely base my opinion on the party aspect. If people are dancing and they’re like, “Oh God, why did he play that?” If they totally killed the party with the song, that’s what I’m judging the deejays on. As you know, I’m not a deejay. I don’t know how to mix. I don’t know how to spin records. So that’s what I solely base my opinion on. So when it comes to the technical stuff, I just leave that up to Kid [Capri] and Viktor [Duplaix.]
Loop 21: What do you say to the criticism that you have no credibility being a judge? What makes you qualified to judge deejays?
Rose: I say that I grew up in Philly. I grew up in a very musical city. I grew up with a lot of music in my house so I know music. Before I went to school in the morning, my mom had on music. You know, after school, during dinner, before bed; music was just in my house. I know good music.
