Everyone’s on a side in this feud, and Amber Rose is team Kimye! Kanye West’s ex-girlfriend spoke out in his defense in a clip for the July 22 episode of ‘The Amber Rose Show’, claiming that after the rapper was torn apart for his infamous VMAs interruption of Taylor Swift, he would never intentionally deceive Taylor with ‘Famous’ like she claims he did. WATCH here!
Amber Rose, 32, sympathizes with Kanye West, 39, in the clip, via People, explaining that the period after the VMAs “was just a very hard time for him”. “I watched people say that they did not want to work with him anymore because of it,” Amber remembers. “He really went through a lot of bullsh*t and I know that Kanye would never ever go through that again by not calling Taylor and say, ‘Heads up, I’m about to go write this verse real quick. Just wanted to make sure you’re cool with it.’ I know that about Kanye.” Well, he sort of did that — yes, there was a phone call, but Tay claims that he never specifically mentioned he’d be calling her a “b*tch”…though of course we haven’t seen all of the footage of that conversation. WATCH Amber in the clip below:
“I’m not the biggest fan of Kanye…but I was next to him at the VMAs that year…I remember the repercussions after that,” Amber adds. “He was so remorseful. I mean, he really felt so bad, because it wasn’t about Taylor. It was about Beyoncé and her video…he didn’t want to interrupt Taylor — he didn’t even know who she was at the time,” she explains. Uh, that’s still not an excuse for intruding on someone’s speech, no matter who it is!
Finally, Amber calls out Ye for excluding her from his “Famous” video orgy. “I say all of that to say, why didn’t I get a phone call for using a naked wax figure in your video Kanye?” Amber demands. “I mean, Taylor gets a call but I don’t get a call. So please stay the f*ck out of the news so I don’t need to talk about your ass anymore.” Hilarious! You can tune in to The Amber Rose Show Fridays at 11:00 PM EST on VH1.
