Amber Rose is busy making her press rounds to promote her new book, “How to be a Bad B*tch,” but some folks are already questioning the contents of the book because of the title alone.
Amber labels herself as a feminist, so some feel it’s counterproductive for her to refer to herself as a “bad b*tch.”
However, Amber thinks it’s empowering.
Check out the following excerpt from her recent interview with Jezebel:
The title of this book kinda requires people to accept that women have reclaimed this word “b*tch.” In the beginning you write, “I was born a bad b*tch.” Did you wrestle with yourself about using that in the title or was it immediate?
It was more so immediate. I do see a lot of comments like, “Well, why would you call it How to Be a Bad B*tch.” In all actuality, guys are gonna call us that anyway, so why not embrace it and make it a positive thing where a bad b*tch can be a well-rounded woman that has everything together instead of always letting those words hurt us? Just like my Slut Walk, it comes to a point where you have to embrace it.
Amber also denies promoting promiscuity. Click next for the details.
