Amber Rose: Wiz Khalifa Isn’t Downgrade

Amber Rose is the subject of an upcoming cover feature in the new King magazine and spends a good deal of her interview explaining how she fell in love with rapper Wiz Khalifa and how their relationship is different from the one she had with Kanye West.

Saying that she had sworn to never date another musician, Rose eventually traded numbers with Khalifa over Twitter. She wanted to give him a pair of her company’s sunglasses because of their mutual Pennsylvania upbringing. The two met during a Rose workout session and, while she referred to Wiz as her “little brother” publicly, the duo immediately hit it off.

“I chilled with him for two weeks,” she said to King. “We didn’t kiss or nothing. Then he left for Pittsburgh and when he left I was so lost without him.”

She revealed that she loves Wiz for his endless optimism and business savvy. After some long distance phone calls, Rose realized their relationship was growing into something bigger. “We just talked on the phone constantly, and that’s when we realized we were really falling for each other. And I was like, when this young boy gets back from Pittsburgh, he is definitely getting some.”

When asked how Khalifa differs from her first star boyfriend Kanye West, Rose was quick to point out that there’s a huge difference between the two. Claiming that if readers knew how West really acted in his day-to-day life, they would never claim she had downgraded.

“There’s no comparison in personalities,” she said. “You know when people say how do you go from Kanye to Wiz Khalifa, that’s a downgrade. But the only question I can ask them is: Have you ever dated Kanye? Because I have, and believe me, I did not downgrade at all. Not in any aspect, at all.”
