Amber Rose Explains Photoshopping Bush
Amber Rose is opening up about her NSFW photo that recently broke the internet. Last month, the model, feminist and talk show host posted the controversial bottomless photo. While Instagram removed the image, ‘Muva’ is now explaining that the image was posted to promote her upcoming SlutWalk. She also cops to altering the image. Rose says,
I had them Photoshop out my tattoos to focus on the bush alone. I feel like as women, we always feel like we need to shave or wax — and if we don’t, then we’re considered unkempt or unclean or we’re gonna smell funny. I believe that it’s natural and we shouldn’t be ashamed of it.
In terms of prepping for her big moment, she explains,
I just used some soap and some lotion. In that picture, it was just not fully wild and grown out at that time. When I finish getting washed in the shower, I use baby oil gel all over my body [including my bush].
People are very uncomfortable with the female body. It’s OK to leak images onto the Internet and people are like, ‘Yeah, that’s so cool.’ But if you actually do it yourself and in a way that’s owning your own sexuality, it’s almost taboo.
