AMBER ROSE RELEASES “FAME” ft. WIZ KHALIFA
Earlier this year, Amber Rose announced that she was in the studio every day, working on new music and now we get a chance to see what she’s been cooking up.
Her debut single, ‘Fame’ dropped this morning and with a little studio magic, Amber gives her first-hand account of the ups and the downs of the glamorous life. In the new joint, she sings over a pop tune while expressing that even though people think it’s easy to be her, they have no clue. Being flown in private jets and constantly being photographed while out shopping for exclusive bags sounds like a dream to most girls but Amber paints a different picture:
being blindsided by all the lights,
The questions one made up
like these rumors were made up,
Can’t shop for clothes.
or by some cigs
Without paparazzi looking for a flick.
This is a new situation.
You’re an overnight sensation.”
Of course an Amber Rose debut wouldn’t be complete without a flow from Wiz Khalifa who drops a hot 16 to finish off the track. Oh, and this sounds nothing like Amber. More like an alter ego.
Check out the record below:

They were both cheating on me and Reggie with each other.” Apparently, Kim never explained or defended her actions, even after Amber emailed her.

The Mayweather vs. Ortiz boxing match wasn’t the only fight going down in Las Vegas over the weekend. Ray J and Fabolous allegedly got into a scuffle that landed Ray J in handcuffs. The R&B crooner ripped into Fab while explaining his side of the story.

The tweet was enough to send Ray J over the top. When he saw Fab in Vegas over the weekend, he confronted him at Diddy’s post-fight dinner. Following their exchange of words, they ran into each other again at the Palms Casino, where Fab was scheduled to perform.
A heated Ray J called into Power 105.1’s “The Breakfast Club” on Monday morning to berate the Brooklyn rapper, calling him and his crew “punk faggots.”
“When you want to disrespect me and the Money Team, and we got seven Rolls-Royces outside and we just made 350 racks on the [fight]… Don’t disrespect me. I’ma smack you up again fool,” he taunted.
Ray J, who was kicked out of his hotel and detained by police following the incident, denies that he was hurt, but claims Fabolous backed down after being threatened. “When I seen him, I was with Floyd and 50 and he tried to say don’t touch me and I touched that ni**a,” he said. “I swear to God he runnin’ from me right now. I had a hundred fools outside of Moon [nightclub]. He never left the club. He was scared up in there. He tried to call the police.”
He alleges that Fab suffered an injury as a result of their altercation. “All I’m sayin’ is if you got Fab’s number, tell that ni**a to send a picture of his face right now.”
During the fiery interview, he demanded an on-air apology from Fabolous and said that DJ Clue is the only one who can settle the beef. Listen to him go off in the uncensored audio.

AMBER ROSE NUDE SCANDAL: EXPLICIT PHOTO LEAKS COST HER BUSINESS DEAL
BY SHARI WEISS
DAILY NEWS STAFF WRITER
Friday, July 1st 2011
Amber Rose was distraught after nude photos leaked online, though she knew it would happen.
Amber Rose‘s nude photo scandal has caused her to spend the last few days in tears.
The model was distraught after someone she “trusted” leaked explicit pictures of her online – even though she knew the intimate snapshots might one day be shared with the masses.
But even a false story can cause significant damage.
“The company that I was working with no longer wants to work with me because of these pics and that prevents me from getting money to take care of my family,” Rose complained on TwitterWednesday.
Rose, who later clarified that she wasn’t dropped by her modeling agency, explained that the pictures were more than two years old and had been “just sitting in my computer.”
“I trusted someone that worked 4 me & allowed them to use my laptop a million times,” the beauty said. “I caught this person sending my pics to themselves and I fired this person immediately.”
And Rose admitted she knew the pictures, unfortunately, would eventually make their way onto the web.
“Wiz & I & both of our families have known about this for 2 months now,” she said. “We tried to prepare ourselves for this day.”
As it turned out, nothing could prepare Rose for the pain she’s felt since the leak actually happened on Tuesday.
“I’m really hurt & embarrassed because I have so many young girls that look up to me,” she tweeted.
“I know I’m not the only girl in the world that has taken pics like that but they were very private,” Rose said. “I’m sorry for letting my young Rosebuds down.”
Minaj expressed surprise, however, that anyone believed the story was legitimate in the first place.
“I don’t address dumb sh-t,” she tweeted Thursday, adding, “I always assume intelligent ppl understand these ‘stories’ are 4 entertainment purposes only. But clearly [not].”
Minaj, who warned that “KARMA is a b-tch” and “every lie u print will come back to you & your children in one way or the other,” explained why she felt compelled to speak out about this rumor when she’s often the victim of so many other false stories.
“4 da record, only reason I addressed this is b/c its costing some1 their job,” she said.
And though Rose wrote that she “cried for the past 2 days,” she said she knows – eventually – this too “shall pass.”
