If you got it, flaunt it…and get a man to pay for it? Amber Rose is no stranger to getting what she wants. In her new book, How to Be a Bad Bitch, the former stripper-turned-model-turned author is teaching women how to seduce men to get paid.
“As women, we’re fortunate enough to use our seductive skills in order to be able to get money from our significant others,” she says in an interview with Time. “A lot of women don’t know how to seduce a man. It is extremely easy once you get to that point, and you can get anything you want out of them. And I know it might sound messed up, but once you get to that point, it’s not using. It’s not using a man, it’s literally getting what you want by any means necessary.”
Amber began her career as a stripper in Philadelphia but says that she minted $1 million with her techniques. “Being a dancer definitely was like being in business school because I constantly spoke to people. I mean, I literally had to persuade a man to give me money out of his pocket. And I apply that to my daily life. Even getting a book, you have to have an initial meeting…and you have to sell yourself.”
She famously met Kanye West as a dancer and became his muse. She then flipped the exposure into becoming a star in her own right. A marriage and baby with Wiz Khalifa later, and now Amber is creating a platform for herself.
Many are outraged that the self-professed feminist is basically telling women to sell their bodies. Amber is unapologetic. “I am a mogul. I have a bunch of businesses, I’m now an actress, I’m an author, I went on an entire world tour and I don’t even sing. So if that doesn’t tell you that I am an entrepreneur, then I don’t know what does.”
