And she doesn’t care.

Amber Rose wrote a piece for Time magazine (yes, that Time magazine) talking about how she doesn’t care what people think anymore, especially considering she’s been a sex object and prey to the male double standard for most of her life. Here are some snippets from the interview, which come off as well thought out, albeit a little out of left field post-Kanye West twitter slammin.’ I have some qualms about this piece, but first read a bit for yourself:

On shaming as a teenager: Ever since high school, I’ve been called a slut. All the boys were attracted to me—that wasn’t my fault! Then, when I started getting famous, the shaming got even worse. All these messed up stories came out about me, and I was like, “That’s not true! I’m not that kind of girl!” But even things I had done—things a man would never be judged for—got me lots of hate.

On freeing one’s self from other’s wants: when you care too much, you’re not living at your full potential. When you really stop caring about what people say, that’s when you really start living. It’s such an amazing feeling. It’s about loving who you are, owning who you are and knowing that it’s O.K. to live your life how you want to live it. We’re all human, which means we’re not all perfect. It’s so cool to think that I might help women think about who they want to be and then encourage them to be that person with no remorse. I want to help women just be happy in their own skin.

On not caring what people think: I realized that I can’t make everyone believe. And I can’t talk to everyone and tell them who I really am. They’re still going to have their own opinions. If you know me, you love me. If you don’t know me, you might love me, but you might not—and that’s cool. And you know what? Now I sleep like a baby at night.

Now, I like what she’s saying. But also, it feels like she DOES care what people think- otherwise, she wouldn’t have to slam people via twitter or work so hard to look a “certain way.” But again, these are just my perceptions looking IN.

How do YOU feel about Amber Rose’s statements?
