Masturbate for Glowing Skin + More Amber Rose Advice
Once known solely for the men she was dating, Amber Rose has spent the last couple years proving she’s more than just a pretty face, and is in fact a bad bitch who won’t stand for being called a “slut” ever. The author, actress, and advocate has shown she’s a woman of many talents, using her platform to empower women and educate the public on rape culture through her Slut Walk.
And if her body positive selfies and the way she shuts down all her haters wasn’t enough to make you fall in love with her, Rose has also been known to offer some of the best unfiltered advice about any topic, from masturbating, to threesomes (and why you should avoid them). But it’s her most recent advice that really piqued our interest; in an interview with Glamour, she revealed that her secret to her glowing skin isn’t microdermabrasion or laser, but in fact masturbating.
So to celebrate the multifaceted feminist—and this newly acquired knowledge—we compiled Rose’s 11 best pieces of advice that’ll help you get through any situation.
On Dealing With Your Appearance:
“If you don’t wanna wear makeup and you wanna wear your hair how you wanna wear it, whatever makes you feel comfortable and beautiful, then that’s exactly what you should do.” (via Jezebel)
“Your sex appeal or beauty isn’t defined by anyone else … you are your own audience, your own V.I.P.” (from her book, How to Be a Bad Bitch)
“All of us women, let’s just stick together and look out for each other.” (via Paper Magazine)
On Being a Bad Bitch:
“To be a bad bitch you need self-confidence, just like to need an inspired, polished look that is completely and totally you.” (from her book, How to Be a Bad Bitch)
On Making Mistakes:
“There may have been a time where you looked back and said, ‘I probably shouldn’t have done that.’ Does that make you a ho? No, it makes you human.” (from her op-ed in Time)
On Being Attractive:
“Fearlessness is what’s attractive to most people, rather than being a size two or having the latest purse or driving a tricked-out car.” (from her book, How to Be a Bad Bitch)
On Being Carefree:
“When you care too much, you’re not living at your full potential. When you really stop caring about what people say, that’s when you really start living.” (from her op-ed in Time)
On Being a M.I.L.F:
“People think that once you become a mom you’re a fucking nun and you’re not allowed to be sexy anymore or have sex or date people or live your life. Once you have a baby, you have to put on a cardigan and become a teacher. It doesn’t work like that. You live your life for your baby and you raise your child to be the best person they can possibly be, but you also don’t lose yourself in the process. I can’t live my life for the internet. I live my life for me.” (via Jezebel)
“Going on a date is not going over to a guy’s house and chilling with his friends while they drink beer and play video games.” (from her book, How to Be a Bad Bitch)
On Finding Love:
“I believe that you can love anyone. I’ve had relationships with women, I’ve had relationships with men. I don’t think you should be judged based on who you find attractive. Especially guys — gay men, they really have it hard sometimes.”
On Eating Whatever the Fuck You Want:
“Don’t avoid getting seconds of food if you’re still hungry. From my own experience, a lot of guys find it very attractive.” (from her book, How to Be a Bad Bitch)
