Amber Rose is opening up about her now famous SlutWalk promo photo!
In the shot, the 33-year-old model bared all from the waist down while promoting her annual walk to help spread awareness against sexual injustice.
In a new interview with Refinery29, Amber opens up about why she decided photoshop her tattoos out of the shot.
“I had them photoshop out my tattoos to focus on the bush alone,” Amber said. “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.”
When asked growing out her pubic hair, Amber said, “I go back and forth — it really depends on my mood and how I feel. I was a dancer, so I [used to] shave every day. If you shave every single day, you won’t get razor bumps or anything like that. But that was my job. I pretty much had to because it was how I was making money.”
Amber then went on to talk about how she grooms and takes care of herself down there.
“I didn’t really do anything crazy to groom it, Amber said. “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].”
