Amber Rose Says ‘Kanye Saved My Life’



Kanye West’s on/off girlfriend Amber Rose is crediting the rapper for “saving” her life and helping to jump start her modeling career.

The Philly-born model says she was on the constant grind before she started dating Kanye. The couple quickly became a highlight of red carpet events, which boosted her star power in the process.

“Honestly, Kanye saved my life, and I don’t even think about what I would have been; I just think about what I’m going to be,” she told YRB Magazine


Rose says she’s still a bit baffled that folks treat her like a famous star when she’s spotted on the street.

“I don’t look at myself as a celebrity. I’m just a dope chick from South Philly!” she said. “I mean, it’s crazy when fans come up to me and cry and just want a hug from me. It bugs me out! But it’s really cool.”

However, she admits the constant paparazzi presence has begun to irk her – and she now struggles with anxiety every time a photographer is near.

“Sometimes it does get overwhelming because, for example, I like to be on the beach with my man with no top on. I’m very comfortable with my body. [See photo above.] But there’s no privacy – that’s the only thing that overwhelms me. Every time I see a light flash, I think it’s the paparazzi. Those f**kers give me anxiety.”


West and Rose, who briefly split last summer, were recently rumored to have broken up once again.She landed a contract with top agency Ford Models in 2009 after posing nude with West to promote his new sneaker line with Louis Vuitton. Shout to To EURweb for story
