Amber Rose is calling out what she perceives as double standards once again, but this time it’s geared towards Beyoncé.

In Austin, Texas for  SXSW promoting her new 3D character, Rose spoke on what she thinks are the double standards society places on women like herself and West while giving passes to women like Beyoncé.

In an interview with Daily Beast, Rose states it’s unfair to allow Beyoncé the ability to “twerk” and be “half naked” simply because she has talent.


“They come at me and Kim so hard because I was a stripper and she had a sex tape,” Rose said in the interview. “So if we could sing, it would be OK if we were on stage half-naked. We all love Beyoncé, but she’s on stage half-naked and twerking all the time, yet people say, oh, she has talent so she’s able to do that. We don’t have the talent that Beyoncé has, so we get criticized as former sex workers, but at the end of the day we’re just women—we’re all women—and we should all embrace each other. No one is greater.”

Despite her criticism, Amber states she respects and admires Beyoncé as a woman and artist; she’s just not a fan of the preferential treatment.

“We’re all the same. So, to criticize us as incapable of being smart businesswomen because Kim has a reality show and I’m a socialite and we don’t sing is stupid. We’ve both been in movies, and we take our acting, business ventures, and everything else very seriously.”

Although it seems with all of the public defending of Kim Kardashian-West that the two are best friends, Amber states the chances of the two actually being besties is slim to none due to her disdain for Kanye.

“The thing is, me and Kim will probably—I won’t say we’ll never be friends, but we accept each other for who we are, and that’s the most important thing as women,” says Rose. “I don’t get along with her husband—I don’t think we’ll ever be the best of friends—but it’s good that we understand who we both are, got all that shit out on the table, and can just move on with our lives knowing that the Internet is mostly what gave us the beef we had. We didn’t naturally have any beef with each other, the Internet just naturally instigated everything. So we got it all out and it’s all good now.”
