Amber Rose Wants to Remind Everyone That Channing Tatum Was a Stripper Too

Amber Rose used Channing Tatum’s stripper past to call out Hollywood’s sexist double standards.

During a new interview with Cosmopolitan South Africa, the model opened up bout how unfair it is that she’s still often labeled a “stripper” despite all of her other accomplishments in the industry. She also doesn’t understand why the Magic Mike actor is praised for his past, while she gets bashed.

“Channing Tatum was a stripper. He was a stripper just like me,” she said, drawing comparisons between their lives. “He even made a movie about being a stripper! And everyone bought it and they loved it and they were like, ‘Oh my God, Magic Mike, we gotta go see it!’ But if I did that, people would tell me I was disgusting.”

Cover girl! Thank you @cosmopolitan South Africa! It hits news stands tmrw 💋

She does have a solid point. “I run eight business, I’m the CEO of my own company and still I’m called a stripper,” she added. “It’s so ridiculous. We’ve had the same life, [Tatum] and I, and I’m dumbed down for it. It’s not his fault — it’s just society.”

Amber Rose is a mother, author, talk show host, entrepreneur, and perhaps the season 23 winner of Dancing with the Stars. Stay tuned.
