[Probably NSFW] Who taught you how to have a diva moment? ... YEEZY TAUGHT ME!

I just saw the clip below from Russell Simmon's new "reality" show. The clip was labeled as Amber Rose having a "diva" moment? Well, what a surprise? She went from being an aspiring model to dating one of hip-hops most popular stars and she *somehow* either turned into a diva, had a diva moment, or has been a diva all along. None of the 3 would shock me but I'd gamble my money on the guess that since she started modeling Amber has probably wanted to be a "diva" but just didn't have the resume (don't all women have at least a little diva in them anyway though) and Kanye was her ticket to enable her to be a real diva if she wanted to.

And boy oh boy did she hit a home-run! She caught Kanye post-break-up/post-engagement and aesthetically she's one of those women whose sex appeal and general appearance would make most men want to holla (read: hit that). And even though she seems/seemed quite quiet she has that intriguing look/edge to her with the short hair and the fact that she posed half-naked in magazines for a living (yeah fellas, THAT edge).

Amber seemed to just play the role of Kanye's armpiece for a long time. This isn't surprising as Kanye probably has to be the bigger diva in his relationships (no shots I love Kanye but let's be real here). She didn't talk much, she was just there, looking fashion-forward, trendy, voluptuous, and flyy just about all the time. But even as Yeezy's armpiece she always had this aura of mystery about her, probably because she was so quiet. You know they say you have to watch out for the quiet ones. And once I heard Cassidy's lyrics on his Ego Remix I started wondering if Amber Rose was just another allegedly reformed hoodrat that hit the jackpot. At this point, I'm not saying that she is at all because I don't know her (in other words, this entire post is conjecture and/or my perception which could definitely be wrong). But I will say that after watching this video it seems like the fame (and money by the way because she was allegedly given a six or seven figure amount to not talk about her relationship with Kanye) she gained from being Kanye's girl *MAY* have gone to her head a bit. Or maybe I'm missing something and if so, ladies please explain it to me.


What I find most interesting about this video is that Amber Rose said she likes a "manly man". Presumably this implies that she likes guys a little less "metro" and a little more "street". At least that's how I interpreted it. And if that's the case, no offense to Ye Tuda but how did Kanye fit that description? Like seriously, how did Kanye even come remotely close to that description?


The diva moment is something I think every woman has every once in a while. Some of you ladies have more than others because you listen to too much Beyonce and watch too much Basic Broads of... Real Housewives shows and think you can pull off the same shenanigans. So for Amber Rose to have one isn't out of the realm of reality by any means at all, but it did seem a little extra. But I guess being extra is part of what makes it a diva moment.

That is a LOT of conjecture! I would say most women don't act like this. Listening to Bey or watching Real Housewives is entertainment, not a script! At least I would hope. Ambular was RIDICULOUS! And ghetto. And a liar, but I won't go there. As far as her "manly man" comment. I've always interpreted that to mean men who are masculine without trying and aren't metro at all. Guys who other guys like and would hang out with...

You're right, so opposite of Ye. I also think she wants a man that is rich but doesn't want the spotlight. Sorry this got long-winded.

Well yeah, MOST women don't lol. That's why I said "some of you ladies". Yet-and-still, most women do have their diva moments.

And it might not be script for you and you may not absorb it as much as others but there are TONS of women out here that emulate that stuff either consciously or subconsciously. Same with some guys and hip-hop artists.

Rich but doesn't want the spotlight sounds about right but still (to me) reads as a chick just using her ass(ets) to come up. Don't respect that as much as I respect a chick that can use her mind but this is nothing new and it's been happening for centuries I'm sure lol.
