Amber Rose Explains Why She Photoshopped Her NSFW Bush Pic

Here's why she did it.

Amber Rose nearly broke Instagram last month when she uploaded a photo showing off her unshaven pubic hair. Her NSFW bush pic prompted a ton of debate on social media and Instagram ultimately pulled the photo from its site. Eagle-eyed fans may have noticed something missing from the pics, though — Rose's tattoos were edited out.

The entrepreneur/activist explained her choice to have the photo altered in a new interview with Refinery 29 this week.

"I had them Photoshop out my tattoos to focus on the bush alone," she explained. "I feel like as women, we always feel like we need to shave or wax — and if we don't, then we're considered unkempt or unclean or we're gonna smell funny. I believe that it's natural and we shouldn't be ashamed of it."

"People are very uncomfortable with the female body," she continued. "It's OK to leak images onto the internet and people are like, 'Yeah, that's so cool.' But if you actually do it yourself and in a way that's owning your own sexuality, it's almost taboo."

Rose's feminist views caused a ton of controversy, but that's exactly what she wanted.

"I go far and beyond to piss people off on purpose," Rose explained. "That's what I do to bring awareness to Slutwalk and what's going on. The fact that there are double standards, that women are not allowed to own their sexuality and their bodies. We can't possibly be sexually confident, because then we're whores. We're not allowed to have a past. We're incapable of love if we're too beautiful or if we're too successful. It's all really, really f*cked up."
