Shut Down: Amber Rose Blasts GQ For Referring To Her As “Kanye’s Ex” & “Wiz’s Baby Mama”

Instagram Photo

Amber Rose is not here to be a name that is only looked at as the ex-significant other of another rapper, and GQ needs to understand that.

The prestigious magazine recently released a blurb about the model’s upcoming book, How To Be A Bad Bitch, where they referred to her as “Kanye’s infamous ex” and “Wiz Khalifa’s baby mama.”

On top of putting her name next to her ex’s, Muva Rosebud was also deemed a “teen stripper turned megalomaniac muse,” much to her displeasure.

She put the blurb on her Instagram, captioning the photo,”Really @gq??? I’m so much more then Kanye’s Ex or Wiz’s baby’s mama. Damn, why the fuck did u guys reach out to me for this article and photoshoot? To dumb me down? I talked about feminism and my Slutwalk… Wtf nice title smh I expected so much more from u guys and I’m so disappointed. I was so excited to be featured in GQ not realizing I was shooting for a tabloid. My slutwalk was for ignorant shit like this. Oh “Her beautiful dark twisted journey to the top”? Nice pun. Negative af. Thx for nothing.”

The blurb comes just after Amber Rose hosted her Slut Walk LA, which was to help women protest being slut-shamed. She even gave a speech on forgiving both of her famous ex’s for their comments about her in interviews and tracks.

What are your thoughts on Amber shutting down GQ?

Stop Saying Black People Don’t Support Each Other Economically


How often have you heard it said that black Americans don’t support each other economically? It’s a common refrain in conversations around sociopolitical uplift for the black community and many come to the conclusion that blacks just don’t show each other the same kind of financial love that you see in other racial and ethnic groups. Here’s the thing, however: that’s a myth. A new book, Collective Courage: A History of African American Cooperative Economic Thought and Practice, unearths the rich and long history of cooperative economics in the black community.


“In most places I’ve spoken, people think that we didn’t engage in cooperative economics,” says author Jessica Gordon Nembhard, political economist and professor of community justice and social economic development at John Jay College in New York City. “My challenge was to prove that we did.”

Gordon Nembhard says she assumed she’d spend just a few years researching whatever cooperatives she could dig up. Instead, she was met with a history that spanned black Americans’ period of enslavement to the present day and support for cooperatives from almost every major black political leader along the way.

One example of a powerful black economic cooperative was the Colored Farmers National Alliance and Cooperative Union, which  existed from 1886 to 1891. Gordon Nembhard found that the CFNACU was formed to aid Black farmers, particularly with mortgage payments and marketing. The group provided other community services, however. It promoted alliances between farmers and laborers and served as a resource for sharing agricultural techniques and coordinating efforts for planting and harvesting. CFNACU also worked to counter exploitation by white landowners and violence from vigilantes. With more than 1 million members and branches/cooperative stores in the ports of Norfolk, Charleston, Mobile, New Orleans and Houston, it was the largest Black organization of its day.

Watch Gordon Nembhard discuss the book below.

[ione_embed src=//www.youtube.com/embed/_TVIghQMkBg service=youtube width=640 height=360 type=iframe]

So why is this history relatively lost?

“I’m not sure but there’s a lack of education about co-ops in general in our society,” says Gordon Nembhard. “We teach about capitalism and present capitalism as the only option. Also, often whenever blacks attempted to establish them, their efforts were sabotaged by white competitors and white supremacists. In many cases, it was through violence but in others it could be as simple as having your rent raised, banks denying your loan or even being priced out of insurance.”

Finally, after years of studying black cooperatives and their place in black life,  Gordon Nembhard says she’s taken away just how important economic independence through cooperation has been for black Americans.

“The black cooperative movement has always been parallel to the black liberation and civil rights movements. We’ve mostly heard about the political side of the movement but you can’t name a major black political leader that didn’t point to cooperatives as a pathway to freedom.”

Karrine Steffans Bringing Tell-All Book To Television

Superhead laying downJust when you thought Karrine Steffans was done exploiting her sexcapades with rappers for fame, she announces that she’s working on bringing her tell-all book “Confessions of A Video Vixen” to the small screen.

Destiny’s Child Cast Off LaTavia Roberson Set To Write Tell-All

LaTavia Roberson Promo Photo It’s been a long journey for LaTavia Roberson since she and LeToya Luckett were unceremoniously kicked out of Destiny’s Child. While Luckett has tasted success as a solo artist, actress, and host, LaTavia fell far away from the limelight. Now Roberson is ready to let the world know about her life after Destiny’s Child. Roberson is set to write a tell-all book.


In an interview with Sister 2 Sister Magazine, LaTavia says the book isn’t just about her experiences in the Grammy Award-winning girl group, but more about her life. Being in Destiny’s Child just happens to be apart of her story. “My book is basically my love letter to everybody who has wondered where I’ve been and what I’ve been going through,” the singer said. “I’ve heard things about me and I’ve heard rumors about myself. I do not mind being someone who will open up my life to any fans that I have about where I’ve really been. I’d rather they get it from the horse’s mouth.”

While many will say she’s just out here trying to make money by telling all of Beyonce and the other girls’ business, LaTavia is adamant that the book will be about her. “I’ll definitely talk about my experiences in Destiny’s Child and everything that happened in my life thereafter. I’ve been through some serious things. It’s a testimony.”

So far, a title or a release date haven’t been announced.

Meek Mill Set To Debut First Novel


Philly’s Meek Mill will be dropping his first novel, ‘Tony’s Story’, on paperback and e-book on May 1. The Novel will release five days before the Philly rapper’s “Dreamchasers 3” mixtape.

You can check out HipHopWired’s synopsis below:

“Tony and Ty had big dreams of getting rich. Although they grew up like brothers, once money and envy entered the equation, greed took over and loyalty went out the door.

After a deadly shooting, the streets of Philly were in an uproar and the lives of many people revolved around revenge. Gold digger Kee capitalized on the built-up tension; but before she could really enjoy the fruits of her labor, she was thrust into the middle of a street war with the cost being her life.

Trust was not an option and revenge was the only thing anyone had in common. Paulie wanted revenge for his cousin; LB wanted revenge for his brother. They both had blood in their eyes and murder in mind; names were called while gunners lurked in the shadows. It became bigger than the almighty dollar and no one was safe. Philly won’t be the same after you’re a witness to Tony Story.”
