Amber Rose – often the topic of much discussion. A few days ago, the online world was greeted by Amber Rose’s latest celebration of the female body. In the past we’ve been used to seeing raunchy photos, twerking to rap artist’s songs, twerking in a moving vehicle, twerking in the water, and… – well you get my drift. However this time, the famous Hip-Hop Model went a step further – via ‘Funny or Die’s’ recent comedy sketch, which points out that women too can be proud of a one-nighter.
Set in a sunny and cheerful all American neighbourhood, featuring a Broadway soundtrack reminiscent of Annie and such classics – Amber is seen leaving a stranger’s home, bare footed before starting the day. The Milkman greets her, asking if she had sex last night – from which she replies “I sure did!” full of smiles and confidence. Throughout her morning stroll, she met others who congratulated her. Senior citizens to younger citizens – even the mayor of the town celebrates her by eagerly giving her an actual key to the city. The comedic video ends after the man whom she spent the night with aught up with her – Saying she forgot to leave her number. She turns around and answers “No, I didn’t.”
The video leaves a pleasant smile on the viewer’s face – especially if you’re someone who has been unfortunate enough to endure the walk of shame; a reality all too familiar for most of us. Although a comedy, it is evident that Amber set out to voice her opinion on a subject that she is no stranger to. Amber Rose has always addressed the double-standards between men and women within our society – however this time I believe she has gotten her point across to a tea.
Executed beautifully – this visual statement portrays an ideal world, where regardless of your gender, you can have fun and also be proud of it the next day. Watch full video below.
