Amber's Got a Man ... And?
1 year ago
The stripper turned rapper's girlfriend seems quite happy
When rapper Wiz Khalifa announced that his girlfriend Amber Rose had accepted his marriage proposal, the collective teeth sucking could be heard across the nation. For the number of times I saw the words across my Twitter feed, I'm amazed that "h*e" and "housewife" didn't become trending topics.
If you are not a close watcher of Black popular culture and may be confused as to who these interesting looking young people are, Wiz Khalifa is the chart-topping rapper behind the 2010 smash "Black and Yellow" and a number of other songs that are more popular in White frat houses than they are around the way; Amber Rose is a former-stripper turned Kanye West-muse turned pin-up girl known for her exotic look, remarkable curves and bald fade.

Let's add that up: former stripper girlfriend of rapper becomes another rapper's girlfriend. Rapper number two liked "it" (I'm thinking "it" in this case would be her mind, body and soul, but some disagree) and so he put a ring on it....OMG WAIT WHAT? STRIPPERS CANT GET MARRIED! THEY TAKE THEIR CLOTHES OFF FOR MONEY! FOR MONEY! NOT FOR FREE LIKE THE REST OF US! Even ex-strippers have the permanent scent of Eau d' Hoe on them forever, so the fact that Amber isn't a current stripper doesn't matter. And, perhaps worse, she used to go with Kanye West and NOW she goes with Wiz Khalifa! You can't date two people in the same industry! That makes you a groupie-slut-trick-tramp-trollop! Doesn't matter if the woman in question is traversing in celeb circles and might not be seated next to Joe the Mailman at the club these days, dating more than zero rappers (or ball players or actors) makes you a chickenhead...and she dated TWO of them! That's far more than zero.
If the sarcasm didn't drip allover your laptop screen, those aren't my thoughts on the matter. Yet that has been the constant narrative around Wizamber (Khalirose? I hope they don't name their daughter that) since the two started courting just over a year ago.
