Amber Rose Defends Kanye West in Taylor Swift Feud

Amber Rose has something to say about Kanye West’s Taylor Swift feud.

After Kim Kardashian posted footage of Yeezy and Taylor discussing the now-infamous “Famous” lyrics on Snapchat, Rose defended her ex on her VH1 talk show, “The Amber Rose Show.”

“I’m not the biggest fan of Kanye,” she said. “But I will say this: I was next to him at the VMAs [in 2009, when West interrupted Swift]…and I remember the repercussions after that. I remember Taylor’s mother and father coming up to us and saying, ‘One day, Kanye, you’re gonna have a daughter and somebody is going to do that to you.

“He was so remorseful,” Rose added. “He really felt so bad because it wasn’t about Taylor. It was about Beyoncé and her video [for ‘Single Ladies’]…He didn’t want to interrupt her moment. It really wasn’t about Taylor. He didn’t even know who she was at the time.”

Rose continued, saying that times got tougher as Lady Gaga canceled her joint tour with Yeezy, and as other celebrities vowed not to work with him anymore.

“I know that Kanye would never ever go through that again by not calling Taylor and saying, ‘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. I say all that to say, why didn’t I get a phone call for using a naked wax figure in your video, Kanye? I mean, Taylor gets a call but I don’t get a call. So, please stay the fuck out of the news so I ain’t gotta talk about your ass no more.”
