Sneakers as a Kid:

“Man I remember tryna get school shoes as a kid. It was a set amount of money for me to get shoes with. You know clothes, you gon…you gon get what you get, but shoes you had this much money. So if you wanna add and add to this to get something better than what you know you can get with this, then you do so. *pointing to sneakers* My first pair of Jordan’s ever. These are my first pair of Jordan’s ever: The Olympic Jordans. I had a choice to get these or the Air Raid’s as a kid, and I ended up getting the Jordan’s. That’s crazy! A lot of things I couldn’t get when I was a kid. I buy what I love now. You know? Why why why wouldn’t um a young man that can do. I don’t go crazy, but I have my fun sometimes. You gotta reward yourself.”

Street life in Chicago:

“Some of my friends are you know still in the street life in Chicago and other places I just keep ‘em in my prayers. Having friends that did whatever they did in the streets and me going to church and understanding what that life is like too. I feel like the knowledge of both is what keeps me alive to this day. To understand something doesn’t mean you have to do it. A lot of ‘em um when I was a kid, and I tried to do whatever I wanted to do They were like ‘B man you rock with us, but you know this ain’t for you man.’ You know what I mean? They were very honest…and I appreciate that because peer pressure can be a lot or just pressure that don’t they don’t even know they giving you as a kid you know it, it could be a lot on your decisions um those decisions can alter your life. I could definitely not be here. Easy…easy…easy.”

@VH1 Announces Premiere Date For “The Amber Rose Show” (@DaRealAmberRose)

VH1 announced Friday, July 8th at 11PM ET/PT as the premiere date for its highly anticipated Amber Rose Show. Produced by Dr. Phil and Jay McGraw’s Stage 29 Productions, The Amber Rose Show will bring Rose’s unique, unapologetic style, hustle and hilarious point of view to re-invent late night.

Feminist, author, actor and entrepreneur, “Muva Rose” as she’s known to her 18+ million social media followers, will conduct candid interviews with industry experts and lead provocative, entertaining and unfiltered conversations with guests about pop culture, parenting, relationships, friendships, race, and entrepreneurship.

According to Dr. Phil and Jay McGraw: “VH1 and Amber Rose are the perfect blend – hip, current, and on the cutting edge of what’s trending in pop culture. Amber brings a distinctive point of view to today’s issues and with her celebrity guests, will make for very provocative conversations. We are confident her unique voice will resonate with viewers and will be a distinctive addition to the late night talk show landscape.”

Amber Rose is a proud mother, actor, activist, entrepreneur, spokesperson and published author from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. MUVA has affectionately become known as the face of neo-feminism. Ms. Rose’s rise to massive popularity is now largely attributed to her controversial yet impactful perspective on women’s issues. At the core of the Amber Rose brand is her non-profit, the Amber Rose Foundation, dedicated to female empowerment and equality. Last year, Rose rallied her massive social media following to help produce the largest “SlutWalk” in the world. As a philanthropist, Rose has an extensive entrepreneurial profile, which includes acting, producing film and television, modeling, an active public speaking and touring schedule, an eyewear and clothing line, her top-selling audiobook, How to Be a Bad Bitch, and #1 paid-app in the world MUVAmoji.
