Amber Rose, Even The Stars Get Stressed

Recently Amber Rose went to Ghana to host the Vodaphone 020 live music concert. Now, how big of a star do you have to be to get invited to Africa? While there she also spoke with a group of children. During her visit, she had a chance to explore the area. She took some pictures and tweeted them. Some people, mainly ones in Ghana, were infuriated that Amber Rose only showed pictures of the poor areas and not of the rich neighborhoods. After hearing about others anger, Ms. Rose dug herself into a deeper hole. She gave a statement say that she thought Ghana either had very poor neighborhoods or very rich neighborhoods, no middle class. Below is what she officially blogged to the public.

People have to understand that this is my first time in Africa. This is not my culture. I have never been here so if I said anything to hurt anyone’s feelings then I am really, really sorry. I saw that a lot of people on twitter said ‘don’t just show the poverty, show the rich people’. But for me, the rich people aren’t doing anything for the little kids and the people that are living in poverty so I don’t want to go hang out with the rich people.
I wanted to see the kids in poverty. I grew up very poor. So I wanted to go see them, help them, talk to them and inspire them to let them know they could possibly be somebody great. They can be somebody great. So I want everyone in Ghana to know that I wasn’t just saying that ‘Ghana is a poor country and no one should ever come here.’ Anyone that I have spoken to about Ghana since I have been here, I have been saying that it’s such an amazing place. And I’m sorry for not posting pictures of rich people, but it just wasn’t for me to do.

When most people think of Amber Rose they picture Kanye West ex-girlfriend, a former stripper, and (possibly) the love of Wiz Khalifa's life. But how many ex-girlfriends, former strippers, and current girlfriends get the media attention that she does? Can you even name the girl the Ludacris is dating? However, despite her achievements people continue to throw hate towards Amber Rose.

She does have achievements. From the beginning she didn't grab our attention because she was dating Queen Kanye. She originally stood out because she was bald and she made it work for herself. Then she had a body that many people hit up the gym, fatten themselves, starve themselves, and dream about having. She had this fashion style that seemed as if she effortless put on the best clothes every day while having her eyes closed the whole time. She had a look that screamed "look at me" in a good way. You couldn't help but admire that. Plus she pulled off this glamorous look while keeping her personal life very mysterious. To this day, we still don't know much about Amber Rose's personal life.

It's not quite clear what happened between the time Miss Amber started dating Kanye West and now, but she's become quite the star. She has haters. I once heard every star needs some of them. She has admirers. She's being invited to different countries to host events and speak with kids. What can an ex-stripper teach kids? You'd be surprised at the free knowledge.

Despite all her achievements, people continue to tear Amber Rose down and it's showing. It shows that even when you've achieved a lot, made it far from where you used to be, and built a career, people will continue to make you feel as though you've done nothing important. Remember, even stars get stressed, but that doesn't mean you have to stress them out. Someone needs to remind Amber Rose of how far she's come and that she has supporters.
